It has been way to long since my last blog...I began blogging during the summer when I was off from teaching and since school has started back...I feel as though I have no time to do anything except work. Though that doesn't mean that I haven't thought about my blog..it's on my mind a great deal...finding time to actually sit down and write is another story. So I am going to make more of an effort to write consistently, meaning at least once a week.
God has been bringing that word to my mind a lot lately...CONSISTENCY! Consistency is the key! Whether you are in His Word, trying to lose weight or maintain your weight through eating and exercising, or playing a game of volleyball! I realized recently that when I do not run on a consistent basis I struggle to get my 2 miles in...I tire much quicker. As is with my time with God...if I do not consistently stay in His word (meaning daily)..its shows in my actions, my attitude, and my words. As an assistant coach of a girls middle school volleyball team, one of the most important of the things that the girls need to do when they are playing a game is to be consistent. I can't tell you how many times we tell them when they are serving to be consistent in how they are serving...do the same thing every time. If they bounce the ball three times before they are going to serve, then they need to do that very same thing every single time. Consistency! Consistency! Consistency!
So...food for thought...how consistent are you??? How committed are you to being consistent??? Is there something in your life that you need to work on being consistent at? Are you consistently in God's Word??? Is your consistency evident in your actions, attitude, and words? Think about it! Surely I can't be the only one out there who needs to work on being more consistent. Or can I?
