Day 24: 111 Words on Getting Out of a Slump


This is Day 24 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

Continuing the Challenge of saying more with less, attempting to keep each post 100 words or less.

Feeling a little low.

Wondering why.

Checking thoughts.

What’s bothering you?

Oh yeah that.

How do I get out of the slump?

Try out a few thoughts.

I feel my mind pushing back against better thoughts, giving reasons to keep thinking about “the problem.” Need to figure it out, make a  decision.

I tried again.

“God helps me make good decisions.”

“There is always a solution.”

“This is going to work out.”

“I will know exactly what to do.”

“This is going to be a great day.”

“I’m going to accomplish things today.”

And I felt better. I moved on through the day. . . very pleasantly, in fact.

So it is working!

Day 23: 107 Words On Filling Up


This is Day 23 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

Continuing the Challenge of saying more with less, attempting to keep each post 100 words or less.

Here’s today’s effort:

Fill up with My Word, and my life will flow into every area of your life.

Your body, soul and spirit constitute YOU! If all of your thoughts centered around God’s Word, your spirit would respond in perfect alignment with God’s will. Your body would be the one carrying out the deeds exactly as God directs through your spirit. We have within our power to choose to line our thoughts up with God’s Word by filling up with His Word.

We may be far from walking this out, but imagine the difference it will make as we fill up a little more each day!

Let’s try it!

Day 16: 117 Words on Believing


This is Day 16 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

We want to believe. We think we believe. We say we believe, but our emotions give us away.

The life we now have is a result of our innermost beliefs. It is only through changing those beliefs that we will  see something different in our lives.

We may accept something as true in our mind and by “faith,” but true believing is deeper than this.

Nurture the belief and allow it to grow until it produces fruit.

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24

Day 19: 128 Words On Knowing Truth


If you want to know the truth, look in your heart.  God speaks truth to your heart. You will know what God would say to you. He would never tell you how inadequate you are or compare you to someone else. It is not His nature to tell you how bad things are or that there is no hope. Recognize the truth that is being spoken in your heart, truth that you instinctively know.

Look in your heart for truth and declare it repeatedly until it becomes a new deeply rooted belief. When you renew your mind to a new belief, you will view life from this vantage point, and you will be free.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32



Day 22: 135 Words on Reaching for Your Dream


This is Day 22 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

A dream is a goal just big enough to need God’s help in fulfilling it. The thrill of life is partnering with God, allowing Him to supercharge you to accomplish the dreams He gives you.

1. Define your dream. What’s in your heart? What do you want to do or be?

2. Pray ten minutes a day for your dream. Does it line up with God’s peace and plan for you? If it doesn’t, go back to step 1.

3. Activate the dream through picturing the end result. This gives life to it.

4. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you the first step. What can you do right now to move toward your dream?

5. Take that step, and the next, and the next.

Day 21: 130 Words on Negative Snowballs


This is Day 21 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

Negative thoughts will come to you. Continuing to think these negative thoughts stirs up  negative emotions that attract more negative thoughts.

This creates a huge negative snowball that may seem very real and true to you.

If you accept these thoughts as true, you subconsciously behave under the assumption that they are true. Your actions bring responses from others that complete the cycle by appearing to provide evidence that they are indeed true. This has been called a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Break the cycle. Stop negative thoughts.

Ask God for help.

Ask Him to reveal lies.

Ask Him to reveal truth.

Declare the truth.

He created you! You are unique. He has a plan! No one else can fulfill it but you. You alone fill your shoes. Walk out your destiny.


Day 20: 187 Words on Arriving at Your Destination


If you want to reach your destination, you must stay on the road and continue moving forward.

Knowing where you want to go is paramount to getting there.

Once that has been established, simply get in the car and go. Be sure you have gas in your car, and then press on the gas pedal. As you continue moving steadily toward your destination, you will eventually arrive.

There are many places we want to go from our current location. We may have a whole list of destinations:

More peace

More friends

More confidence

More money

Better health

Restoration of relationship

Closer relationship to God

You can set a destination for the next hour. You can set destinations for the future. Our thoughts and words are the gas in our tank. We move forward moment by moment. Our thoughts and words lock in our destination exactly like a GPS on a car. The Holy Spirit will guide us through our spirit on the best route to get there. Before you know it, you will clearly hear, “You have arrived at your destination.”

187 words.

Day 18: 156 Words on Negativity


This is Day 18 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

A negative stronghold or mindset which produces negative emotions comes from a deeply rooted wrong belief. These may have come to us from experiences and words spoken to us as young children, or they may have come to us later in life.

To win over this, we must first learn to question the thoughts that come to us.


“That might not be true.”

If it doesn’t uplift you, encourage you and bring you hope, seriously consider putting it in the box with other lies you discover. The last thing you want is a negative belief trying to take up residence in your mind. Your beliefs determine the life you live.

Our goal is to get rid of all limiting and fearful beliefs and accept God’s bright promises for our lives as the foundation for all of our beliefs.



Day 17: 154 Words on Perseverance



This is Day 17 of the Write 31 Days Challenge. To get caught up from Day 1, click here.

One foot in front of the other. . .That’s right. One step. . .then another. . .then another.

It’s only a hundred words. You can’t think of anything powerful to write, yet you must. You must keep on. You must complete the challenge.

You’ve learned the importance of identifying a lie, yet you hear one and you forget for a moment, then you remember, and you shine light on it.

You’ve been finding truth, although it seems faint and far away, yet you move closer.

You say the truth out loud, and again, and again and again. You don’t see it yet, you wonder. . .will I ever?

And you put one foot in front of the other. You speak one word after the other, and then you see it.

It’s a process. Day by day. One step. One word.

Keep going.


Day 15: 163 Words on Imagination



“Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” Albert Einstein

“Imagination is a tool whereby we cooperate with Him (God) to participate in His divine nature and fulfill our God-given purpose.” Shana Schuttle

Using your imagination to fulfill God’s purpose in your life is one of the most amazing blessings we have as children of God.

Imagination allows you to take the limits off.

Anything is possible in your imagination.

God uses your imagination to show you what is possible with Him.

Use your imagination to picture the things you cannot yet believe.

Use your imagination to see the end result.

Use your imagination to solve problems.

Use your imagination to see anything in the future you desire.

You can imagine a successful meeting, a positive response, a restored relationship, a problem solved, a “better” you.

By yielding your imagination to Him, you cooperate with Him to fulfill His will on the earth.

Your imagination opens the door to what is possible!
