Addressing The Doubts

This blog is one of many reminders of things left unfinished on my to-do list. I just published a post that sat in my draft box for a few…months! I was so motivated to do this project not so long ago. What happened? Well, another P31 OBS has come and gone. I actually debated whether to delete my prior posts about “What Happens When Women Say Yes to God” by Lysa TerKeurst. I mean, I never finished the book. And I definitely did not participate in the study enough to write even a single blog post.

Can I do this? Does my participation in these studies even matter? Can I stop procrastinating enough to actually finish the unfinished items on my to-do list? Can I ever grow from the little items and get going to bigger and better places, where God ultimately wants me? Does it all even matter in the end?

Constant doubts.

But then I read something I actually wrote a while back: “But instead of making this a post about beating myself up, I’m turning it into a positive.”

Whoa. I wrote that?

Hmmm. Ok so here’s the positive(s): first, this outlines where I really need to work on my priorities. It’s past midnight and I’m up writing blog posts when I should have been in bed for at least an hour already. Second, I suppose I can look back at this and remember how hard I worked on adding (and hopefully finishing) a new interest to my life. Finally, I can see that sometimes I tend to take on too much and I struggle to get past the minor mistakes I’ve made. It’s ok to do something not so perfectly, because it’s really the progress that counts.

I want to do this, I really do. Now let’s get on with it!
