When Faithfulness Feels Too Hard – 014

Can Anyone Be Faithful All the Time in All the Ways?

What does faithfulness look like in the important areas of of your life?

How do you know if you’re hitting the mark in:

Your relationship with God
Your marriage
Your parenting
Your health
Your purpose
Your relationships?

I chose “faithfulness” as my word for the year in 2021. So now almost half way through, I’m taking an honest inventory of how I’ve cared for each of these key categories of my life. Whether you do goals, verses for the year or resolutions, I hope you’ll find a few benefits from hearing me talk through how I’m doing so far—and where I still need so much grace for continually moving two steps forward, and one step back.

“The answer is never to “do more” but to be faithful in doing the things God has called you to.” – Julie Bender

I mentioned this blog post where I shared more about my word of the year.

If you’re struggling with self-care, I recommend this book:
