For those of you who read my New Year’s post, you know that I made a commitment to post daily. And you also know that this is a commitment I’ve not kept.
I think it’s probably a combination of overcommitment and giving in to that pesky thing Pressfield calls resistance. I’m not happy about skipping out on a commitment I made, but it does provide an opportunity to remember the joy of starting over again. So often we fail and just give up. But if the endeavor is worth the effort to start, hopefully it’s worth the effort to start over.
This is me starting over. Even now as I type I’m debating on the sanity of trying to post every day. Considering that I often come home just in time to fall into bed, it’s understandable that daily postings might be overkill. But I want to try. I want to take this opportunity to celebrate the grace to start again. Isn’t that what we all want? To really believe we can try again?
Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
