As we close this chapter on the final Write 31 Day Challenge … I have mixed emotions almost like I did when this challenge began at the beginning of October. I am thankful for it, though, as it pulled me out of my writing hibernation and made me really focus on something besides the storms in my life that were raging when it first began.
It has been a sweet relief, in a way. An avenue to get my thoughts out of my head and do something constructive to encourage someone else along the way, perhaps.
Writing allows you to release what you hold bottled up inside. Some things you just don’t want to speak .. and so you write it down, and it takes the burden off of your shoulders. You feel a sense of relief having gotten the words OUT.
Other topics have been so fun to speak of – and my heart dances at the good news that has come into all of our lives.
The storms may rage in your life, too, but please be encouraged knowing that they aren’t here to stay. Things change and improve on a daily basis at times … other times there seems to be days without any end in sight. But know this. God will be right there beside you. When you feel you can’t go on, He will lift you up into His strong arms and CARRY you! This I promise to you! You will not EVER walk alone. EVER
Close the chapter on the bad and usher in the good.
It’s like I told someone close to me recently – life will go on. Whether we stay together or we part ways, my life is improving and good things are happening. There is a little baby I can see on the horizon. And that gives me the joy deep within my heart, right along with my two daughters who are my life, heart, and soul.
Live life to the fullest … despite the trials. You will persevere, too, my darlings … and you will be stronger for everything you have gone through.
Take God’s hand, put your faith and trust in Him … and you will not go wrong in this life!
