I've been hearing about the Write 31 Days challenge for a couple of weeks and the temptation has been great. The challenge is to write daily for 31 days on one topic. For a while now it has felt like that creative place inside me, that well from which ideas spring, that force that has always driven me to write, has dried up and died.
It makes me sad.
It frustrates me.
But the last thing I need in my life right now is one more thing to do. This is a hectic season in my life. I'm so busy and so tired that my relationship with God has suffered. It's been quiet between us. My efforts have been half-hearted...most times I sit down to read the Bible and study I end up falling asleep. Prayers feel like they are hitting the ceiling. Answers don't feel like they are coming down.
Except for today. God very clearly suggested that I sign up in the Inspiration & Faith category. I asked what I'm supposed to write about since He and I, we've been having communication problems.
The answer is that I'm going to carve time out of my day somewhere and spend time getting quiet with God. I'm going to spend time in His presence and be still. I'm going to wait for Him to speak to me.
So, I have no idea where the next 31 days are going to go, but you're welcome to check back and see what happens in these 31 moments with God. This is a late start, so if I stick to the entire 31 days and not just the month of October, this will last into November.
I'll have a link over at the Write 31 Days page in the Inspiration & Faith category or you can bookmark the permalink for this post as all future posts will be linked here.
