God made you, so of course, he believes in you. But why don't you? You know your daily schedule, commitments and limits. You also know what you are capable of doing.
For me. I'm an at home mom. Most of my day is spent managing my disability, helping Selah with school, reading and writing. Most of my down time is reading. What if I switch that around to most of my down time is writing? What could I possibly do? I believe I could write more.
One of my favorite songs of last year was Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers 's "Encourage Yourself." An excerpt from the lyrics...
Sometimes you have to speak the word over yourself, the pressure is all around, but God is present help. The enemy created walls, but remember giants, they do fall; speak over yourself, encourage yourself in the Lord.
Write your favorite bible verse or author quote and stick it on your computer, put it by your bedside and inside your wallet and every where you visit the most in your home. Let those words encourage you to meet your mark every day.
My favorite quote: "Seeing yourself in print is such an amazing concept: you can get so much attention without having to actually show up somewhere... You don't have to dress up, for instance, and you can't hear them boo you right away. " Anne Lamont
Allow yourself playtime
As children we played more than observed. We hated to sit on the bench. Now I am an adult and I'm beating other authors to sit on the bench. I'll read your book. I''l review your book. I'll line edit your book. I'll research more. Everything, but I'll write the book. This week let's switch that around. Let's play more. Write more. You know what you can do.
This week's goal: Let's have fun writing.
