Just Do it!

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been working my way through Proverbs, focusing on one application centered in one truth each day.

But all the focus in the world amounts to naught if I don’t couple it with follow through.

Because: Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty (Proverbs 14:23 NLT).

Today is the last day in January, and I suspect, many will abandon or forget those resolutions made with such enthusiasm but a month ago. 1151807_to_do

Will you?

Even if you didn’t make a resolution, I suspect you have goals–areas you’d like to improve in, new skills you’d like to master, perhaps new relationships you’d like to build.

So, what are you doing to make those things happen? What will you do *today* to move toward those goals? 

Do you even remember the goals you’ve made and the reason/s you made them?

Today, I encourage you to take time to think back over your resolutions or commitments made for this month. If you’ve been following our Bible study, pause to review devotions, verses,  and/or passages that stuck out to you and any determinations you made regarding them. Then, commit anew to follow through.

Do you keep a journal? If not, I strongly suggest you start. Not only will it help you expand on your thoughts, but it will provide a recording of things God has shown you. Then, a week or month after an entry, you can return and refresh whatever lessons God showed you.

What devotion/chapter/verse stuck out to you most this past month? Go back, revisit it, and recommit.

Let’s talk about this. You can share your thoughts here in the comments, join the discussion at Living by Grace on Facebook, or join our online Bible study group. You can also review previous posts by scrolling down.
