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.”

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.


The Biggest Challenge Ever!

thumbnail_100wordsI talk a lot. I know I do. My husband used to tell me I’ve been inoculated with words. I used to occasionally ask him if he minded if I talked. This, of course was while he was trying to read or fall asleep. He would always say, “Does it matter?” and I would say, “No,” and keep on talking. So the good news for you, if you visit me here over the next 31 days, you’ll find 100 words or less.

That’s right, I’m joining the Write 31 Days Challenge. Writers from all over the world will be writing on a particular subject for 31 days straight. I have not chosen a particular topic, but rather my challenge is to: Keep it Short! Each post will be 100 words or less, or at least that is my challenge. Will I be able to do it? We shall see!

You can expect some words of encouragement, a quote, an idea or something to think about. Can I do it? We’re not taking bets, but you can cast your vote in the comments. Have you ever tried to limit your words, and say more with less verbiage? I’m up for it.

Now, let’s look at the word count and see how I did with this introduction and explanation:

What! 227 words!

Well, it’s the first day, so come back to see if I can get better every day!
