We are on day 6 of this 31 day writing challenge and I am already stuck. I went through several theme ideas before landing on the idea of hope and I was excited of the challenge to write everyday, as I have for the past couple of years.
But this was the first year I only had a couple of posts in mind, instead of at least a dozen ideas to work with. As the week wore on, I spent my energy on a few posts and didn’t really have time to plan ahead.
I resonate of this feeling of being stuck in life too.
What do you do when you are stuck?
- When the prayers you have been lifting up for several months or years receive the response of “No.” or “Wait, it will happen in the timing I have planned for you.”?
- When the plans you made and the dreams you set out to reach, seem out of grasp in this moment?
- When the day to day routine of life is challenging for you or someone you care about?
What can I do when I am stuck? I can remind myself of why I am doing all of this.
The purpose of this writing challenge is to explore restoration and hope in the midst of a challenging period in my life.
And the purpose of this life is to love and growth and stretch myself in ways that will help others see Jesus.
There’s certainly hope in having purpose and I know that with determination and motivation I can keep going with this challenge and take it one day at a time in this earthly life in which God has a plan for me.
Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. – Proverbs 19:21
