Perfectionism and Posting

So I have realized something about myself recently. Well it's not that much of new revelation. But it's seeking new application in my life right now. That thing is: If I wait till it's perfect, It won't get done (as demonstrated by the three edits I've made within a minute of publishing). Now I've seen that happen in a lot of different areas of my life. But where it particularly relates right now is to this blog.

The astute observer will note that it's not been updated since June of last year. And frankly, for someone who for a long time has had a to passion write, that's just sad. And God's been putting a lot of things on my heart right now that I need to say.

So I'm going to try something. I'm not making any promises or commitments. I'm not making the obligatory "I'm going to start posting again!" post. I'm only going to try writing. And I might get past my internal editor that says it needs to be of a particular quality to hit the "publish" button. Goodness knows that has not stopped a single blogger on the Internet since the whole thing started. I'm just gonna write what God I puts on my heart as frequently as I can get it to a keyboard and see what happens.

So if you're interested in following along, I welcome you to. If you happened across this for some strange random reason, welcome. If you've been sitting around waiting for me to actually write something for the last seven months, God bless you. You are more diligent than I am. I hope whoever you are, you'll get something out of this. I'm planning on doing so myself.

A work in progress,
