Decision

I’m reading a book (details on this coming soon!) about some of the founders of our Country. The theme is constant…decision…men of great decision…

Our son, after calf-roping at his second high school rodeo. It was the first time he caught at a high school rodeo. He fell while running from his horse to the calf… in front of a stadium full of people, but that didn’t stop him. It didn’t even faze him! He had set out to rope and tie the calf and that’s exactly what he did – regardless of any obstacles! He was [and is!] a young man of great decision.

God is also a fan of decision. James 1:6 states “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” (KJV).

Webster tells us decision means “a determination arrived at after consideration.” Not something to be taken lightly. It also states decision is “promptness and firmness in deciding.”

It’s choosing a goal, putting in the effort to learn…

Humbling yourself to be coached by those with more knowledge…

And, emerging victorious!

Every day. Every single day – it is about commitment. That handsome man in the picture above shows up every day of his life, committed. He is a man of great decision and let me tell ya – he sticks with those decisions!! We are the blessed and lucky immediate recipients of his decisions!

So – today – how are your decisions manifesting in your life and the lives of those around you? Does it look and feel the way you want it to? If you’re like me – and falling massively short daily – we can commit to becoming people of great decision NOW! The positive impact of this might be felt hundreds of years from now just like we continue to feel from the founders of our great Country!!
