What Do You Believe

    


What life decisions have you made recently? Have you decided to get more exercise, have a better attitude, learn something new, or pursue a new career? We make many decisions, but too often, we fail to follow through. One reason for this is we don’t focus on moving forward and leaning into that new action. Instead, we keep looking back and re-evaluating our choices. Seth Godin talks about not wasting time revisiting decisions you have already made. Make the decision and move forward.

 

Help yourself by knowing the framework and boundaries of your life. Who are you, where are you going, what things are important to you? Do your decisions fit into this framework and build you up or not? Some decisions need to be re-evaluated, but it's unproductive to spend your time looking back. Make the decision to believe in yourself!

Growing up I remember singing the words to the old Hymn, “I have decided to follow Jesus…no turning back, no turning back.” Jesus said a man is unfit for the Kingdom of God if having started a work he then looks back (Luke 9:62). There is truth in these words for all of us. Make the decision to keep going and don’t turn back.
