Self-discipline is my absolute worst quality. That I know of. My close friends could probably give me a list of worse personality traits if they weren’t so tactful.
This blog alone has been a challenge to my perseverance. Most bloggers can probably empathize with that helpless feeling of absolutely no motivation to do anything whatsoever. Dedicating myself to actually getting a post up, and making it worth reading, is not easy.
So, I am starting a project that will help me not only conquer writer’s block, but also strengthen my perseverance muscles.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:5-8
Now, today, I am completely dedicated to following through on my project. However, two months from now, I know I will probably need some moral support to stick with it.
That’s why I need you! My project is to read through the entire Bible in one year. So, I will be posting a section from the Bible once a day, every day, for a total of 365 days. This will basically force me to read the entire Bible; because, after all, I have to read my own posts!
I need you to hold me accountable. Remind me that I’m in a battle of self-improvement. Nudge me along when I miss a few days. We’re all on here because we don’t mind our lives being a literal open book, so I’m just asking you to be involved in the editing 🙂
So, without further flowery metaphors, I’m off to schedule my first post. Wish me luck, and pray for dedication!
