I’ve found myself saying, “I’ll try” a lot lately. For example, tonight I caught myself thinking, “I’ll try to get up early tomorrow.” Ummm, what?! I’ll try to get up early? How about I... GET UP early and accomplish what is on my heart to accomplish?
I find that I have that attitude in many different of areas of my life. “I’ll try to get back to you on that” or “I’ll try to finish that project this month” or, “I’ll try to stick to that dietary change.” But if I’m being honest with myself, having that mindset is giving myself an out to not do it. It gives me a pass to say, “well, I tried.” (I have never understood Yoda so much in my life than in this moment.)
I don’t want to live that way, you guys. I don’t want to live a life of just trying anymore. Trying and quitting when it’s hard. Trying and flaking out when I don’t feel like it. Trying and letting go of dreams because they don’t happen quickly or I hit a set back.
Please hear my heart, my life is built on a foundation of grace - mostly given to me by God and others, and in all honesty, much less of which is given to me from myself. But it is there and I lean on it often. But I refuse to let the idea of grace be an avenue of accepting a safe, mediocre life because I didn’t give it my ALL. Grace is not a pass to stop trying, it’s the pass to keep on going.
In 2019 it is guaranteed that I will fail and I will fall and I will mess all the things up. I’m telling you that as truth right now. BUT - every day, little by little, I want to watch myself brush off the dust and show up again. And again. And again, until my “I’ll try” mentality has shifted into a “I’m doing this” mentality. I want to learn to except the slow and the process and the interruptions that make life, life. And learn to cheer myself on. And learn to let go of fear. I want to learn to stop trying and start doing.
I would love to hear what you are wanting to see for yourself in 2019!
This year’s Food for the Hungry drive raised $214,191. Nearly 24 truckloads of food were collected.
All proceeds will go to local branches of The Salvation Army and Interchurch Social Services, as well as additional agencies and organizations that provide food-based initiatives.
And there is still time to donate. Several county-wide food collection points will be open until Dec. 31. The Salvation Army, Interchurch Social Services and Food for the Hungry itself will all accept donations until the end of the year as well.
