Consistency. It's really critical to success in any endeavor isn't it?
To be a loving wife I need to be consistently available (in more ways than one), encouraging and open to adventure.
Consistently speaking kindly, listening fully, correcting gently, serving humbly - these habits create a gracious mother.
And my body would look far more bikini ready if only I were consistent in eating well, exercising regularly and rising early.
Consistency is SO HARD though.
It's easy to occasionally write a sweet note to a friend, very difficult to regularly encourage in word and prayer. It's easy to be kind to your kids when they are cute and in a "good phase." Hard to be kind when they have just peed on the floor and broken down with wails of, "I waaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnt it." Easy to sit in a row on Sunday morning, hard to live The Word consistently during the week.
This week I have struggled with my eating habits and being kind to my children (among many many other things as well.) What do you consistently struggle for consistency in?
