Good Saturday morning friends. I hope you are well and happy this day. Today's scripture talks about consistency. God says He is going to do something and so He does. Isn't it wonderful that we serve a God we can trust?
I, on the other hand, am human. And I have a hard time being consistent with many things. I promise myself that I'm going to not indulge in sweets. And then, I eat a cookie.
I promise myself that I'm going to exercise more. And then I end up sitting around the house. Or doing other things other than exercise.
I want to practice flute on a daily basis. But then, I let housework or other things get in the way and take my energy and then feel too tired for practicing.
The list could go on and on. Being consistent, for me, has always been a challenge. I have good intentions but then......well, you know the old saying about having good intentions don't you? While it's a bit harsh, it serves as a reminder that having good intentions isn't enough. It's important to actually do what we say we are going to do.
But, life isn't always so easy. Things happen. Physical tiredness happens. Family events happen. We can't always do what we say we are going to do.
Which brings me to the point of this post/devotional. I have tried to be consistent this summer with posting Saturday Scriptures. But, I have recently failed pretty miserably. I have been back and forth to help family and have been too tired, traveling or simply forgot due to circumstances. Yep, that's an excuse, I know. But, that's life sometimes.
So, as I go into the Fall, I will continue to blog. And to post devotionals. But, I can't promise that I will be consistent with any of it. Will the devotional type posts be on Saturdays? I can't promise that. They may occur on a weekday. And, I will post my other usual posts, as well, as I can.
I'm so glad that God is consistent. I keep striving to be more consistent in my life too. But, I'm only human.
How about you? Do you have issues with consistency like me?
