Should I Stay or Should I Go?

I have been struggling this week with prioritizing the various things on my ever-growing to-do list.

I have even toyed with the idea of LEAVING the blogiverse for a time. But then I remembered my commitments:

  • #Write28Days
  • Launch Team book reviews
  • 6-Word Poetry (I missed this week)
  • #FiveMinuteFriday
  • #Grace&Truth
  • #TellHisStory
  • #InspireMeMonday

So.

For now.

I will leave the idea of leaving where it is and keep on writing.

  1. “When you feel like giving up, remind yourself of the reason you do what you do”. And you have also built a blogging structure. That’s what I learnt from this post. I pray God continually strengths you ❤️

  2. This is a reoccurring question for me also. Every time I contemplate leaving, God sends encouragement that keeps me going. When it’s time to leave the blog, I trust He will let me know as clearly as He encourages me to keep going.

  3. I left my writing for a while. But now I am back doing the 28 day challenge (and some of these words have been quite a challenge) and writing for 5 minute Friday. I have so many things to do every day and I just cannot get it all done. Like you, I need to prioritize. But my writing is a priority for me even if the only thing I write is a simple blog.

  4. Barb, Having a “why” for the things we do or commit to doing helps us incorporate intentionality in our choices and keeps us going when we hit those rough spots!

  5. And my reply is, “Thank you God for letting this sister keep writing!” I know what you mean though, with it being tax season, I am not doing as much reading on WP, or writing as much, but some days Holy Spirit just tells me “You need to post this NOW!” So I do. I’m so glad I will still be reading what you are putting out there!

  6. I’ve been your encourager here and will continue to do so. I would only add from personal experience that sometimes that sense of uneasiness is God speaking to our heart about changing gears. Blessings in all you do for Him Barb!

  7. I really truly want to leave,
    sometimes, this writing gig,
    because I have come to believe
    that it’s all too big,
    to try to make a kind of sense
    from these days of trial;
    it all seems just like pretense
    to raise my head and smile,
    but then the answer comes to me,
    not loud, but calm and still,
    that all that I have to be
    is what will shine God’s will,
    and I don’t need to seek perfection,
    but let my heart be God’s reflection.

  8. There are things I want to leave but I have a commitment I need to fulfill. I need to remember why I am doing those things in the first place. Maybe an evaluation and a cutting back, instead of fully leaving might be more helpful? Thanks for sharing.

  9. I can understand what your saying Barbara, I have recently had to cut back on some things so that I could make best use of my time. I found that the quality of my work was falling and something had to change. It is a work in progress at present with me. I pray that you find time to rest and regain some strength Barbara, may God guide and bless you richly sister,

  10. Consider your why. Pray about it. I recently cut back on blogging so I would have more time for other creative endeavors. Sometimes it’s not an all or nothing answer 😊. You have important words to say, and your Father knows best how you can say them.
