Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. ~ 1 Timothy 4:15

I’m not always sure how to do this.  It’s been my way to do things in the background and to silently plug along until progress is made.  I don’t necessarily need for people to see how well I’m doing, whether that is because I don’t want people to see me fail or not remains to be seen.  The thing is, I am not a showy person and I don’t like to call attention to anything that I do; failure or success.

This can become a hindrance to me at times, but over the past few years, I have gotten better at talking about the things I do right.  There are a few of these.  I have my fair share of shortcomings, but there are things I know I absolutely get right even if others out there can’t see them.  I need to learn how to continue on the path without being deterred by negative people and their inability to understand what I am trying to do.  Not everyone will get it.  And that’s okay.  God has put me on a mission to help get the word out and He has given me a vehicle for doing so.  It doesn’t make sense to everyone, but to those whom I’m supposed to help speak, it makes perfect sense.  And that’s all that matters.
