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.
