Is it possible? Am I going to be able to accomplish it? What will happen if I don't accomplish what I have set out to do?
These, and many more, questions may be asked when we start out to complete a project; or to finish a challenge.
As we begin our "project" or "challenge" ... we may have doubts as to how far we will go before we decide it just isn't right! Or, we may wonder if what we are doing is a valuable thing for our life at this time...
Hmmm! Seems as if I may be referring to a particular "challenge" that is into Day 6!! Actually, I did ask myself these questions as the days grew closer and closer and...the "last minute" was now the night before!
Last year, it was the last minute! This year, I was thinking about it over a month earlier. That is the reason I decided to do the Blog-tember challenge: writing on specific prompts for the month of September; and I did accomplish that goal of writing every day - well, every day I planned to write! One or two days were prompts using technology I did not know how to use (creating a VLOG, for instance).
Accomplishing the Blog-tember challenge prepared me for blogging every day in October. I was reminded that I do enjoy writing, and connecting with so many other bloggers is just a major benefit of the 31 day challenge.
And, learning of so many other bloggers who were doing the Five Minute Friday "free writes", also helped me to make the decision...
So, yes, it is possible to complete this challenge, and any other challenge that we may be facing!
If we "believe in possibilities", if we have "faith" that God will guide our thoughts and our words...
"...all things are possible..."
Yet, what about that last question that started this post:
What will happen if I don't accomplish what I have set out to do?
I feel that if we put one step in front of the other to attempt the challenge, we have taken the step to do our best. And, if "life" gets in the way; more important things come up...then we have done our best; we have accomplished what we set out to do before being taken in another direction. And, if we let God be our guide, nothing is impossible with Him...
Because, only He knows what is along the path ahead of us; and only He knows where we need to be on that path.
So, go ahead and write your heart out! And share and connect and encourage; because that's what I am going to be doing...for whatever we do accomplish, will be a big accomplishment!
This is Day 6 of "31 Days of Free Writes", linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday group. Check out all of my "Free Write" posts in this series here. For more information on the "Write31Days" challenge, click here.
