Measuring Success

Today was a very long day. It started around 5:30am and is finally ending at 10:30pm. As I lay here I’m just trying to catch my breath. I’ve ministered to so many people today. I’ve given the best I’ve had to offer. I continue to see God changing so many lives Sunday after Sunday. Yet, I often find myself thinking of all the things I didn’t get to do.

There comes a point that you have to make sure you have a realistic view of success. I believe a successful day is knowing you did everything you could to carry out God’s will. If just one life is impacted it was a great day. There will always be things you couldn’t do and people you couldn’t reach.

The older I get the more I keep asking myself “Am I really living my best life now?” I’m in the process of making sure my priorities are in order. l’m making sure God’s priorities are driving my life. I’ve got a lot going on in my heart and mind these days. But, really all that matters in the end is whether I did my best to follow God’s plans for my life.

“Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3
