How to Post (or Do Whatever You Do) Every Day…

People ask me sometimes how I post to this blog every day. I’ve long tried to figure that out, and the truth is I never really knew… until today. Of course, I attribute it to prayer, first and foremost. I believe this is God’s plan for this season of my life, and so I believe He provides, but that’s God’s part. It’s the most important part, but what about my part.

Well today, in checking my email I found a post from Seth Godin’s blog entitled “Daily” and it really summed up the process.

There’s a fundamental difference between the things you do every day, every single day, and the things you do only when the spirit moves you.

One difference is that once you’ve committed to doing something daily, you find that the spirit moves you, daily.

Rather than having a daily debate about today’s agenda, you can decide once that you will do something, and then decide every single day how to do it.

Summed up in one word, it’s faithfulness. I feel led to help other creatives. I am determined to have something to share with you each day, so I seek it out and share what comes to me. I try to give the best I possibly can without allowing my inner critic to stifle me in a vain quest for perfection. I may not always get it right, but I seek God’s guidance and I move forward. There is a Spirit, but waiting for Him to move you may be the wrong course of action. I believe He is always on the move and it is up to us to follow.

I love how Seth Godin expresses things. He put into great words what I have been trying ot express for a while. If you’re not following His blog, you should. This blog exists, at least in part, because I read Godin’s epic book Tribes and decided it was time to try to unite the tribe of Christian creatives.
