James 4:14
“Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”

I do not know what tomorrow will bring, especially in this season of life. This seems so true – I do not know what tomorrow will bring. What then is commitment if I cannot guarantee my tomorrow?

Commitment is Today

Commitment is choosing to give each of my days to the season I am in.

I am committed to my team. I am committed to being available to process with them about their moments. Their days. Ministry. Dreams. Frustrations. And, uncertainties. I am committed to encouraging them, honoring them, and being present in their every day lives.

I am committed to my neighborhood. I am committed to going to church with my neighbors and worshipping with them, regardless of how much Creole I understand that Sunday. I am committed to greeting, being with, and praying for them with my whole heart.

I am committed to my dreams. I am committed to risking time and time again, that I might learn and grow into the woman God has created me to be. I am committed to rejoicing in small beginnings, that I might see my God given dreams come to full fruition.

I am committed to guarding my heart today, even though I know not what tomorrow holds.
