Where Does My Worth Come From?

I used to check the stats of my blog every single day. 

Multiple times a day. 

I don't know why it made me feel good to see those numbers climb up. Or feel bad when they didn't! 

I guess it gave me a sense of value. It made me feel important if people liked what I wrote. 

I struggle with finding my value from external things instead of internally from God. 

It's harder for me to find my worth in Christ and who I am in Christ and not in the things that I do. 

Who I am is enough. 

Not what I do. 

But, like I said, that is a real struggle for me! 

Becoming a professional, full-time blogger did NOT pan out for me. 

And I am thankful that my worth is not in a blog. I am thankful that I didn't pressure myself to do this to make it big. haha. 

It's definitely a hobby for me. Something that I enjoy when I have the time or the inspiration. 

I don't usually mull over a blog post. I like to just sit and write it in about 10 minutes...proof it, then publish it! 

Again. There is no pressure so I enjoy it! 

God is always wanting to work in us, and He is always wanting to work through us. 

He wants me to find my worth and my value in Him...not in what I do or do not do.

Focused and Determined

What are you committed to doing? 

It takes commitment and focus to make things happen. 

If we leave things in our lives up to "chance," there is no guarantee that these things will happen. 

But, with commitment, determination and focus, you will make things happen. 

What is not in your life now that you would like for it to be there? 

And just as importantly, what is in your life right now that you don't want for it to be there? 

I challenge you to get a journal and write these things down. 

And don't just close the journal and never look at it again. 

Look at this list every day. 


What you focus on will happen.

If it is not on your mind regularly, you won't be focusing on making those things happen. 

Don't put off for tomorrow what you are able to do today! 

So, as I am finishing writing this blog, I am going to get my calendar and look at my lists. They are not just in my journal, they are in my planner as well. And something I will do tomorrow will help me move closer to getting the things I want in life and getting rid of the things that I don't! 

I am focused and determined.
