2015 A to Z Blog Challenge C – Celebration

This weekend we are celebrating Passover and the resurrection of Jesus The Christ. Jesus was our Passover Lamb that was born to redeem us from Adam’s treason when he chose death over life in the garden.

By Jesus’s unconditional love he bled, suffered and died so we could have the same choice as Adam. We can choose eternal life in Christ or eternal life with Satan. If Jesus hadn’t stepped up and died in our place we wouldn’t be able to make that choice. We would have all been doomed to Hell.

What Jesus did is a great reason to have a celebration.

The Time Is Now

Do you know what time it is? Some of us do and some don’t. It’s time for us to get serious about our purpose and destiny. We weren’t put on this earth to take up space and party all the days of our lives. It does seem like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be.

Deep down inside us lies our purpose and destiny. At the right time it will be revealed to us. If we pay attention we will know. Once we realize it we should then move forward to fulfilling what is put in us.We are in time and time waits for no one.

Since that is the case I believe I’ve wasted enough time and I’m going to get busy fulfilling what I know to do.

How about you?

In my last blog I wrote about a story I’m writing.

My friend, an accomplished author who knows the ins and outs of writing asked me to send the first five pages to her. Today I received her critique. She gave me a lot of great advise on how I can make a better story.

I’m excited because she didn’t say my story was a hopeless mess that needs to be trashed. She gave me hope.

Tomorrow I will devote my evening to making the corrections and continue enlarging the story. Even if this story goes nowhere I’m happy I’m doing something I was afraid to do. That fear is gone and I’m going full steam ahead until it is complete. Then I will start on the next one.

Is there a best seller coming. Stay tuned.

Winning at the Unknown

This week I crossed a milestone in my writing.

I’ve written five pages of a story. For some reason I thought I couldn’t write anything longer than three-fourths of a page–my blog or a poem.

I’ve been attending a writers group for over two years and now have my own group. I have two conferences and many workshops under my belt. Everyone was writing books except me. I didn’t believe I could write anything of that magnitude and surely couldn’t write fiction.

Another conference is coming up next month with a different platform. This year there will be workshops where accomplished writers help with your writing skills through something you’ve written.

That posed a problem for me. I had nothing–what would I do.

I was flipping through my tablet and came across something I’d written. It was notes that could become a story or even a book. With that in my hand I was still unsure if I could complete the task. I don’t recall writing the notes–it is my handwriting. I guess I did.

I spent a couple of weeks encouraging myself and writing tidbits The Lord was giving me.

This week became the week to do it. I sat at my dining table. I played a few games and checked my Facebook. Then I took a leap into a task that seemed bigger than life. After a few minutes I was on a roll. I wrote the five pages I needed. If it hadn’t been 1:30 am I would have written more pages.

I don’t know what an experienced writer will say about it but I’ve jumped a major hurdle and am pleased with myself. I will finish my story/book whether it’s publishable or not.

What task have you tackled that you never thought you could?

If Only I Could Sing

There’s a song in me

I wish I could be

The best darn singer

In all eternity.

I would sing

The high notes

And low notes too

To the beat of the drums

And the tune of the bass

Songs of joy

Some of blues

Ones I’d put away

Others I’d use

A melody that speaks for itself

A tune that makes you glow

A sultry sound that awakens the soul

A little country with a lot of giddy-up

I’d open my heart

Let the tunes flow free

That’s locked up inside of me

If only I could sing

Journey

I’m on my way somewhere-where God wants me to go.

This will be a journey from where I’m at to where I’m going.

When I look back at this successful journey I expect to see growth like I’ve never seen before in every area of my life.

I expect my relationship with God to explode like multiple firecrackers going off at the same time

My footsteps will be ordered by the Lord with understanding to learn His commands.

I will never be the same-only better in Christ.

This journey will make me fit to do God’s business and bring about an enrichment to my life-like I’ve never experienced before.

Have you ever been on a journey? Did you reach your destination?

Thankful for My Exodus

I’m not the same person I was four years ago when I made my exodus from Ohio to Texas. When I arrived in Texas I was a hot mess and I didn’t realize it. The fact is I was a hot mess in Ohio before I left but it wasn’t easy to detect.

I’m thankful that today, 3 years 11 months later I’m a new person from the inside out. I’ve been delivered from many issues that have haunted me for a long time. Not only did I overcome the issues but also lost weight. Those issues would have hindered me from moving into my purpose and destiny. I’m liking who I have become. All this has happened by the gentle hand of God.

Can you look at your life and see anything you’ve been delivered from? Has your life changed as a result of the deliverance?
