Inspired by . . . a challenge
I try really hard not to set myself up for failure. I know myself well enough to admit that there are some things that I am just not going to do. Instead of continually setting a standard that I know I won’t reach, I accept the fact that it’s not going to happen – and move on.
Getting up early to exercise is a good example. I stopped beating myself up over that one a long time ago. It’s just not who I am.
And that’s okay.
But sometimes a challenge can be a good thing. Especially when it helps to grow and stretch you in positive ways.
I’ve been circling around The Nester’s 31 Day writing challenge for awhile now. It’s difficult for me to do anything consistently for five days, let alone thirty-one, and I was leery of adding additional stress to my already stressful life.
I can do this!
God has shown me a way and what!
So, beginning October 1st, for the next 31 days, when you visit me here you’ll find me talking about JOY!
Intentional may be my one word for 2014, but JOY is my life word! I’m so excited to be sharing insights about JOY, from God’s word, with you through the month of October! My thoughts are inspired by the Oswald Chambers devotional, JOY: Strength In the Lord, available through You Version and I’d love it if you followed along!
The Joy of the Lord
is my strength!
