Good Timing

Kristin just linked to this article on talent, passion, and discipline on her blog, and it could not have come at a better time.  So encouraging and daunting at the same time.  I am not a disciplined person.  I might sometimes appear so on the outside, but on the inside, I'm flying seventeen different directions at once.

When I started down this path of writing with publication as a goal, I decided that 2 Timothy 1:7 is my theme verse.  "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline."  I am re-asserting this theme and posting this as a reminder to myself more than anyone else.

  2. This is when it's hard. When it's work. :)

  3. But it's also when I focus on WHY I'm doing this, my ultimate goal. Not publication but using, improving, and sharing the gifts God has given me for His glory.

    And this is me stepping off my soapbox. :)
