More to My Story

Have you ever had a song that has been stuck in your head for awhile? Well the song below is mine right now.

To be honest, I almost gave up on blogging altogether.  Why? The voices in my head… You know the voices I am talking about, don’t you? The voices that say, “It’s no big deal, you can just quit writing”. “No one really cares about what you have to say anyway”.  Quitting may have been option if this journey was just about me, but it isn’t.  My story isn’t just mine.  As a Christ follower this song is my prayer..  I want my story to be more about Him and less about me (John 3:30).

Is there something you have wanted quit or give up on? What motivates you to keep going when you want to throw in the towel?  Maybe it’s your family or a dream. Has there been a song that has encouraged you to keep moving forward?  Whatever it is I’d love to hear about it in the  comments section.

Come on friends, let’s keep on keeping on together! If you need some more encouragement, I highly recommend Nicki Koziarz’s book, “5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quiz”.

    Girl! I feel every word of this! I want to quit at least once a week, maybe even once a day. It is so important to keep in mind that this is a ministry, not a platform. Keep writing, friend! Visiting from #IntentionalTuesday.

      Isn’t it so amazing to think that it is His story not just ours, Ellen? I don’t know about you, but I find comfort and freedom in the fact that the story isn’t completely dependent on me.

    Giving up is not the option sure I’ve had those voices come into my head but you just have to keep going because there is one thing I know true God will not give up on us even when we want to throw in the towel
