HOWEVER, I told Silvia that I'd be there. And that was my motivation. Silvia would be waiting for me.
Accountability. I need it. You need it.
Lately, I've invited a few of my friends into my bubble, my private world where I have thoughts and good intentions that so often go undone because I am not accountable to anyone, I've wanted to write more consistently and I've felt the Lord calling me to do it, and I have so many thoughts that He gives me, but with no one to hold me accountable, I am free to rationalize away my thoughts, to believe that no one wants to read them, that no one would be encouraged or challenged by what the Lord shares with me.
I got a text this morning from Sherry, which read, "ok, accountability partner... how far did you get?" She was referring to our conversation last night where we shared with each where we are in our daily Bible reading, our Bible study book and another book we're reading for a class.
Silvia was in the locker room when I got to the pool. We chatted for a few minutes about how neither of us wanted to come today. And how we were both so glad we did.
My goal is that they will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. Colossians 2.2a
