Not another Half-Finished Project in the Bottom of my Wardrobe


Some people are completer finishers, others are not. I definitely fit into the “are not” category.

I get super excited about new projects, getting stuck right into them. Then, after a while I start to get bored, the newness wears off, the project isn’t anything special and it starts to get hard. You can barely see any progress being made. and it feels like you are getting no where fast. That’s about the time when I normally start looking for a new project.

I am actually beginning to overcome this. I finally finished a big project I had been working on for months. A double bed sized crochet blanket.



It’s not another half-finished project sitting in the bottom of my wardrobe, but something I worked on and completed. Even if sometimes it felt like I was getting no where fast. But now I am finished, I can totally say. It was worth the effort.

This is true in the Christian life as well. This life isn’t a sprint, but a long marathon. Sometime’s it will be exciting and even exhilarating, but sometimes it will feel like you are running up hill for miles.

In the end it’s all worth it though. We will get the prize at the end of the race. And wont it be amazing when we can say, “I did my best, I ran this race, I saw it through to the end.”

Don’t get caught up by the wayside, keep on running, you will get there, even if it doesn’t feel like it.


I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. (2 Timothy 4: 7-8)

The pattern for this blanket can be found here.

  1. That’s a nice blanket and you are so patient! I am also about to finish my very first crochet project using wool yarn! Mine is just a small Bible cover. 😀 Regardless of the size of what we accomplish, it really feels good to finish something! ❤

    May God indeed find us faithful enduring to love and please Him until the end. 🙂

  2. Ally,

    Finish is my one word for 2015. I’m not doing so hot. I started painting our master bedroom last summer. Yes, July 2014. My room is 25% new color and 75% old two colors. Making my room a hideous blend of pumpkin orange, faux leather treatment, and hot stone (greyish). Perhaps I can get it FINISHED this July?

    I’m dropping in to #TheocentricThursday participants this week and leaving links to who they are supposed to comment on this week to make sure everyone understands how it works. It works best for the hosts record-keeping if everyone clicks the links on the actual blog hop, but when it comes right down to it, we’re more concerned with everyone receiving at least two comments per week! So, as the first entry this week, you get the confusing posts to comment on. They are:

    Please let me know if you have any questions!
