This morning I recorded some new “The Verb” podcast episodes and begin planning some fall marketing strategies. After this, I answered emails from people needing information on using promotional material for Seated with Christ events and others requesting ordering in bulk information. One project—Seated with Christ—has grown and grown to the point where it’s become bigger than I ever imagined. The other—my baby podcast—is new on the gnarled path. As I compared both endeavors, I possessed the advantage of the long view, of time passing, and of nearly six years of development into the Seated with Christ message.
And here’s what I know:
Things take time. Your work won’t burst into a short-lived flare. You don’t want it to. You want slow and steady. You want a rise over time. It will simmer and bubble; it will percolate and one day become richer and larger than you imagined. It could take six years. It could take ten.
It could take your whole life.
And it will grow and grow.
But the point isn’t how big something becomes; it’s about creating authentic work that could bless one or thousands. It might not even bless anyone but you. Your work, after all, is about helping you worship Jesus more. You stay steady. You work as unto the Lord. Day after day, you put a message out there.
And it will grow and grow.With creative work, stay slow and steady. Simmer and bubble. Percolate. One day, the work will become richer and larger than you imagined. It could take six years. It could take ten. It could take your whole life. Click To Tweet
