My post last Friday may not have meant anything to you, but it was a milestone for me. It was the 1,500 blog I have posted.
When I started this blog in January 2013, I had no idea where it would go. In fact, I didn’t think I would do it five days a week. I thought I would share a few thoughts on the Christian faith, ministry, and living for God. When moments of insight hit me I would write a little something and post it. Slowly it transformed. I started to enjoy writing and looked forward to it as an outlet each day of my thoughts.
Now I have a notebook on my computer and a brown journal that I keep all of my ideas inside until I am ready to write about them. I have ideas coming to me regularly about things I want to write. It is a discipline I enjoy, and I hope it is a blessing to other people.
As of last Friday, I have sat down at my computer and posted something from a picture to a lengthy detailed article one thousand five hundred times.
Whenever I think about this blog, I am reminded of the power of daily discipline. If someone has asked me to post this many times, I would have been overwhelmed. But taking a few minutes a day to do something repeatedly, over time accumulates to something big. This is true of writing, Bible reading, exercise, prayer, marriage conversations, reading, or any activity you enjoy.
In January six years ago I decided to start doing a little writing and here I am today. What decision are you going to make that one day you will look back upon and smile at how far you have come? Life is altered by little choices that we practice every day.
