Hello! Welcome to our weekly Five Minute Friday blog link-up. Today also happens to be Day 27 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. For anyone participating: We’re almost there! You got this!
This week’s FMF prompt is: OVERCOME
The writing life can be downright discouraging at times.
We may face rejection letter after rejection. People might leave critical comments about words we’ve written or leave nasty reviews for our books on Amazon.
We run out of motivation and steam.
We lack time, we lack energy.
We grow weary. We want to give up.
We feel overcome.
But take heart! The One who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
In this world we will have trouble, yes — but He has overcome!
And if you are in Him and He is in you, you have overcome, too. Your victory might not look exactly the way you hope or expect in this life. You might not score that dream job or land that book contract. But you have overcome.
Bind yourself to the anchor of hope, and let Him keep you standing firm. Do not give in to the voices in your head that whisper defeat.
Take your stand, sing your note, play your part.
I just got back from my kids’ choir and band concert, and it occurred to me that we all have a role to play. We all have a part to sing. We all have unique notes — harmonies and melodies, solos and duets. And we need every voice and every instrument.
United we stand.
Lacking the motivation you crave?
