Go and Do

Lately I've been thinking about how I want to be better 

I want to be more respectful to my husband, I want to show him love when I don't feel like it, I want to be a better friend, I want to be more patient, I want to show more self-control, I want to be totally faithful to the Lord, I want to be in the Word way more than I am, I want be a better steward of my time...
and the list goes on 
There's so much that I want to improve about myself, so many things that I want to change
And sometimes it easier to just sit and think about how I want to be better then to actually actively do something about it

But today I'm deciding to stop wanting and to start DOING

So thankful for second chances from such a gracious Lord 
and for a husband who loves me faithfully through all of my imperfections 


  1. I can totally relate to this. In fact, I think I feel this way every day. But you are right -- I need to stop thinking about wanting to change and just go and do :) Great post, girl.

  2. I love that little plaque. Wish I had it in on my wall somewhere! Great post, girly!

    (Took your button. :) )

  3. getting the motivation to start doing is the hardest for me =)

  4. thank you for the inspiring post. I feel the same way all the time. I think the most important thing is that we keep trying, and keep wanting to do better. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Hi, I'm a new follower!

    I could have written this post myself. :)

  6. I totally agree! I have started writing down what I hope to change and then taking the steps to do it! One of my "things" is being more patient!

  7. hmmm.
    this is so good.
    just today i was telling myself [in a whole new light/revelation] "don't let the flesh take over...don't let the flesh take over".... believe me, that's a feat. and most of the time i fail. but holy cow, i actually refrained from opening my mouth to make a situation worse! hah! praise be to God.

    oh, and the stop wanting and start doing? um, yeah. i'm feeling that. asking for courage to live more bravely.
