Write 31 Days 2015: The Recap
Guess what dear readers? Today is October 31! Do you know what that means? It means we did it! We made it through the month of October and are at the end of the 2015 Write 31 days challenge – 31 posts in 31 days, Yeah!
Thanks for spending the month with us. I hope you learned as much as I did about what God has to say about marriage. My prayer for us is that we continue to grow in grace in our relationships.
For years I considered myself a writer who didn’t write. And believe me, I was fully aware of the irony. The thing is, it’s not that I didn’t write, it was more that I didn’t let anyone see my work. I was too scared. Putting words on paper (or typing them on a computer screen) is a deeply personal process that got more difficult to share the older I became.
When I finally decided to start my website (after months of procrastination), knowing that the Write 31 Days challenge was just around the corner was a huge push for me. I was scared to take up the challenge but excited at the same time.
How was I going to find enough things to say about one topic? How was I going to find time to write every day? Would what I had to say even make sense? But you know, even if my words did not change anyone else, they changed me.
I learned that I am a writer who writes.
I am capable of applying bottom to a chair and producing good, strong pieces.
God knows everything about everything and He will help you if you ask.
The Bible has a lot to say about a lot of things. You just have to open yourself up to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Whatever I’m writing about is going to be more relevant to me than anyone else. God uses the material that I intend for others to effect changes in me.
I also discovered that I’m able to survive on a lot less sleep than I realized.
So here I am. A writer who writes. Ready for the next writing challenge.
What Happens Next?
But now that we’re here … you’re probably wondering:
For November, we’re unwrapping a brand new series called: “But God-“.
Have you ever had those moments in your life where it seems as though the only thing left to do is give up? But God stepped in and used your moment of discouragement to encourage your heart or to build up someone else’s faith?
Or have you ever had something really painful or stressful happen to you? But God used it for good?
November at Hebrews12Endurance will focus on those “But God” moments in Scripture. As we look at God working on His people in the Bible, I hope we will also see His Hands working in our lives each day.
Do I promise to write every day? No. But I will commit to three days each week. (Writing every day is exhausting *smile*). I hope you’ll join us next month for this exciting new series.
