Complete Failure

Have you ever felt like a complete failure? No? What’s your secret?

With all good intentions (story of my life), I tried as best I as I could to unplug between Christmas and New Year’s. I had to take care of a few little things for clients, but those I had planned on. For the most part, I didn’t accomplish anything else I had thought I might get to do — writing blog posts for here…writing blog posts for DIY Ministry…writing ebooks…and that was just Day 1 😉

I knew I would be busy as soon as I said I was coming back. The client work was already piling up. Starting off the year behind. That was no different. And then to top it off I’ve been sick the past week. You would be proud of me though — I did take 2 full days “off work” to sleep and try to kick this virus’ booty.

Sharing all of this to say, I still don’t have my stuff together. I know deep in my heart that to fight the slow fade, I need to be spending more time with God. I need to read at least one scripture a day … and not the kind of read that just glosses over it like I’ve already read that one a million times. I do want to share scripture here but realistically I know I will not be able to do one a day like I had hoped. So I’m going to share one of my favorite scriptures with you and ask that you share one with me in the comments. Then if 6 of you leave scriptures in the comments, I’ll have one to read every day this week 🙂

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” — Matthew 6:33

Really I just need to concentrate on the first part “seek first the kingdom of God.”

  1. My favorite right now is – Romans 12:2 (NLT) “Don’t copy the behaviors and customs of this world but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

    “LET God” reminding me its not something I will achieve on my own and if I let him he will transform me.

  2. One of my favorites that seems to be right in my ear over and over again, this year, is Isaiah 43:18,19: “‘Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past.’ ‘Behold I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.'”
