Take action.

Proverbs 16:3 (ESV)
Commit your work to the Lord,
    and your plans will be established.

I came across an amusing story about General Stonewall Jackson's famous Valley Campaign. During the war, Jackson's army found itself on one side of a river when it needed to be on the other.

After telling his engineers to plan and build a bridge so the army could cross, he called his wagon master in to tell him it was urgent that the wagon train cross the river as soon as possible. At once, the wagon master started gathering all the logs, rocks and fence rails he could find and quickly put together a bridge.

Long before daylight, General Jackson got word that all the wagons and artillery had crossed the river. "Where are the engineers and what are they doing?" asked Jackson of his wagon master. "They are drawing up plans for a bridge, Sir." He replied.

Don't spend so much time drawing up plans -- be an example! Get out an take action! 

Dear Lord, help us to get out there and take action. Give us the wisdom to make the right choices. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
