Have you ever intentionally done anything for a consecutive 100 days? If you’re anything like me, your answer was probably an immediate no… They say it takes 21 days of doing something to make it a habit and I think I’ve even struggled with that! Even things I actually want to accomplish sometimes slip through the cracks due to schedule, forgetfulness, or just plain apathy… Please tell me I’m not alone in admitting this!
So when I first heard about the 100 Day Project from my friend Sarah, my initial thought was “not gonna happen…” But I couldn’t shake the idea so even though the initial challenge is just about over, I decided to try one of my own.
Over the next 100 days I will be diving into Scripture and writing out a verse (or verses) that stand out to me on a post-it. Then each day I’m going to “post it” on my wall as a visual reminder of God’s faithfulness and living word.
So, why this goal?
I need this reminder in my life. I need revival in my soul. I need to know that the Word of God is living, moving, breathing within my being and that I can find peace, hope, and truth in Him.
The past few years have been incredibly challenging (if you’ve followed me on Instagram for any length of time that’s no secret), and I want to break free from the heavy bondage of lies and shame that are weighing me down.
100 verses visually posted up on the wall would be a pretty powerful reminder of His faithfulness through the ages, don’t you think?
Before going any further, I must remind myself (and you too should you choose to join in!) that this is not about being perfect. When this idea initially came to me, I thought “oh I will make these post its beautiful with hand lettering and pretty colors and all the things!” but then I got stuck in the perfection rut and never really even got started. Here we are weeks later and I’m realizing I let those lies get in the way of truth once again. I’ve got to say it again, this project isn’t about being perfect… This is about worship. This is about surrounding myself (and yourself if you want to participate too!) in truth.
Would you like to join me? I’ll be sharing my journey on Instagram and Instastories with the hashtag #postitgospel and invite you to participate too! Whether for the full 100 days or just a few here and there, I’d love to see what verses and truths are standing out to you as you dive deep into God’s Word!
Here we go!
