Hang in there!
As we near the end of our first month, I just wanted to encourage you to hang in there!
I am publicly committed to this blog, which gives me little license to skip a day here and there… But last year, I struggled to keep up, just like most people. I’d miss a day and try to make it up the next… But what I have found, is that it is much easier over the long haul to simply make time each day.
I’d like to encourage you to do the same. It was so discouraging to fall behind… then someone asks you about how your reading is going and you might feel a little embarrassed when they do. Or you hear others talking about their reading when you have fallen behind a few days…
I’ve heard several people say they’ve kept up with their reading but not the journaling. Take that extra few minutes and jot down what stood out to you, how it applies to your life and the prayer that comes out of it. There’s something about simply writing it down…
Don’t get discouraged. Hang in there!
Does any of this resonate with you and your experience thus far?
