Not Quitting For One Year

Can we celebrate for a minute?

THIS IS MY 53rd BLOG POST!

That means I have writing to you all for over a year now!

WHAT?!

Three years ago, you never would have got me to believe that I would write that many posts!  Even a year ago, I would have told you,

“Yeah, right.  No way will I do that posts many in a row.  I hate writing.”

I would have said that because I knew I was really good at sabotaging myself.  Actually, I still am good at it.  When I don’t see the results right away, when things get kind of hard, when I don’t believe I’m good at it, when I don’t quite reach my goals…

I quit.

Then, I think something is wrong with me.  That I’m the only one that can’t follow through.  That I'm not good at anything.  That it must just be easier for those “other” people.

I get it. I’ve been there too. I still am some days.

 

As I am writing this post, I had this commitment to myself that I was going to get all the blog posts for March written by February 28. I am well into March and I’m still writing.  I wanted to get them all done and put my focus else where.  

When I didn't get this post done by my goal date, my first reaction was to beat myself up. I wanted to be...

Can I recap for those who may have not read/ listened to my last two posts?

Great! Thank you for sticking with me here.

Two weeks ago I talked about commitment. Why it’s important and how to commit. The take away, commit because the benefits far exceeds the struggle.

Last week I discussed God’s hope versus the world’s hope. The take away, is to commit to stay faithful in the hope (certainty) of God’s promises. Why? Because we can be certain about what He says in His word compared to a world that is very uncertain.

Why the recap? Because, I’m talking about commitment here friend.

 

Now, I really want to challenge your commitment.

 

The opposite of committing is quitting.   Would you agree?

When we quit we give up the commitment we made. Remember, commitment is a stance created by you in which you know what you will or will not do...
