Godly Character Quality #38: Dependability!

Godly Character Quality #38: Dependability vs. Inconsistency: Fulfilling what I consented to do even if it means unexpected sacrifice. – Psalms 15:4


I’d like to think I’m a pretty dependable person. I always do what I say I’ll do. Really! It’s time limits that get me.

Somehow, I am always extremely busy. I always have a ton of stuff to do! Even though usually it’s all enjoyable stuff, I still struggle with time.

So, I guess I’m dependable to a certain extent.

I’m choosy. for example if someone asked me to do something a few days ago and I’m just about to do it when something else that I’d much rather do comes up? Well, you guessed it, that person from a few days ago ends up waiting a few more days. Endless cycle.

I really feel awful when it takes me 2 weeks to get back to someone with something really simple. Something I offered to do for them! I don’t like to make excuses, and I end up in that position a lot.

Here’s to a change: I’m going to become a dependable person!

In all senses of the word.

Who knows what this may entail… scheduling, cutting out distractions, maybe some kind of personal reward… I’m not sure!

I want my friends to think of me as a reliable person. “Oh, that’s Sydney, Miss Dependable!” not, “Oh, Sydney, that girl who is all over the place and doesn’t understand the meaning of time limits?”

It’s a work in progress, let’s just say that. πŸ™‚


What about you? Do you consider yourself a dependable person- in all senses of the word? What does dependability mean to you?

    My husband is just like this! His intentions are always good & he always wants to do everything he promises but he doesn't manage his time properly so that lives him looking bad 😦
