A New Dawn, A new Commitment

A New Dawn.  A New Commitment


Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

 Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

 All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

 I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets : “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it”

  1. And that’s what it’s really about, isn’t it? Seeking until we get His wisdom. It’s all about the journey.

  2. I’m reminded of all the times in the OT when God made a commitment to the Israelites to always be with them, but He couldn’t move forward in helping, protecting, providing, WHATEVER, until they chose to believe and to trust Him. And aren’t we the same way in every relationship, every task? We’ve got to move forward or nothing happens.

    • Yes Victoria, absolutely. I know that I have personally been stuck on several occasions, fearful of making the wrong decision. The result is I end up doing nothing and that is worse than doing something and not getting the desired result. AT LEAST we learn something when we make a decision that has results we did not intend!

      I consistently pray into decisions that I need to make, asking for some guidance. It appears I do not get messages from God that are as clear as him talking to people. This results in prayer asking God to help me to better receive/understand the signs and or the messages…

Whaddya Reckon?
