Why is it so hard to be consistent? 
I have a hard time with routines and habits. Well, maybe not habits cause I’ve definitely adopted some bad ones, but routines for sure.
I’m hit or miss with brushing my teeth before bed. I only made it through the first 4 days of my goal to read through the Bible in a year, last year. I wake up at a different time every morning. I oftentimes read things out of order (not always top to bottom, left to right). When I was in school i’d take my tests out of order (bottom to top or randomly skipping around). Sometimes I’m good at keeping in touch w/ friends, other times i’m not. I change my hairstyles a lot.
This realization has got me to thinking…is my inconsistency a good thing or a bad thing? Did God make me this way or is this another one of my flesh’s weaknesses? 
I know that God never changes. He’s consistent in absolutely every way and He made us in His image so does that mean I need to be consistent too??
What do you think? Do you struggle w/ consistency too? Have you discovered ways to be more consistent with things?
Help me out here!! :)

    OMG…I feel like I just read my life. I feel so horrible about my inconsistency at times. Especially when it spills over into my relationship with God. Sometimes I can be so passionate about something and say things like “God I’m going to do this!!!” and a week later it becomes like a typical new years resolution…Like you…I’m not sure if it’s good or bad, or that I’m just wired like that…..but I’m not sure it’s the best thing. I find it hard to believe that despite my inconsistency (i.e. waking up different times, not having a set routine or failing when I try to begin one), I’m still pretty productive…it’s crazy! But anyway…I’m just saying…I feel you!
