They say that writing everyday will improve your writing skills. Correction, writing everyday will fry your brain. The word for it is writer’s block. Supposedly, every writer gets it. It’s when your prose has turned to mush and every sentence that you type looks like you’ve never owned a pen before in your life. That’s how I feel on day five of my 7 day fast. But I want to stay committed.
It wasn’t always peaches and cream for Michael Jordan either; early on in his career, he was a horrible 3 point shooter. And I know he had days like this. I’m not comparing myself to the greatest, but why not? My God is faithful.
On a positive note, I began the fast to step out on faith for a job as well, and I trust that God will provide all of my needs according to his riches and glory. Philippians 4:19.
I received a letter in the mail today to attend a hearing in order to discuss getting my job back. For all of you who pray, please lift me up in prayer. I also got a call from a few publishing companies about my book.
No matter what the outcome, I promise myself to be bold, shine and step out on faith even when I don’t see a way.
Day 5: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Today, I step out on faith for my finances, for job security, to be a better parent, daughter and friend.
Notes: Emotionally, I didn’t feel the best, but I pulled through and remained focuses in every area.
