On Starting

I just started a blog. The 5 letter sentence that precedes this is profound. Encapsulated in these 5 words “I just started a blog” are the following;

  1. I achieved a goal I have been putting off for a while.
  2. I choose to be courageous about sharing my thoughts on the world wide web.
  3. I am excited at the opportunity to develop a community of people who work, love and pray excellently, while advancing God’s Kingdom.

I wrote the above to say this “starting is powerful”. Starting something means that we win over fear one more time. Starting means we get to throw our hats in the ring and cease to be onlookers. Win or lose…. starting is good!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Winston Churchill

So, here’s the start of my blog. I intend to write weekly on seeking God’s kingdom in how we work, love, pray and do everything. Please join me on this journey by checking here regularly.

As for me, I am taking this power of the start and applying it to all domains of my life. No more withering in fear for me.

What would you start today if you acted courageous ? why don’t you start?

  1. Very nice write up. I started something I have been afraid to start for a while now. I started exercise. I’m going to put that same attitude into the other things in my life I have been afraid of.
