Following Through

Numbers 30: 1-2

Does anyone else struggle with “following through” on commitments or promises? I battle this more often than I’d like to admit. I have great intentions like, “Yes. I will help out at church. You can count on me.” Then never follow up nor never make that promised visit. I’m not proud of this in anyway shape or form. As I was reading scripture trying to learn about what God says about following through on our vows and commitments, it hit me pretty hard that God considers this a sin. God is not pleased when we vow to Him or to others then do not follow through. Yes, we are all human and make mistakes and forget things, but God says it’s better to not commit at all then to let your brothers and sisters down.”Let your yes be yes and your no be no.” I want to be loyal and dependable but sometimes I agree to do things before I think it through. I do remind myself that God isn’t finished with me yet. I still have a lot to work on. Heavenly Father, help me to be more dependable and when I give my word to do whatever it is, lay it heavy on my heart to follow through. Thank you father for Your patience in me. Amen. Have a blessed day! 🙂
