The past two years have been filled with many demands on my time! Demands to pack, unpack, prepare, plan, solve, clean, put away, teach, raise, etc. I love setting goals and achieving them. As I start a challenging goal that I have not spent enough time on, I am determined now to break this goal up into smaller, achievable pieces and tackle it.
I am writing a book about healing. I had written about 10-20 pages and then lost it on my old computer as it died! But, I used it as an opportunity to start anew. Tonight I have broken the book up into chapters, Bible Study Leader Guide Questions, Verses, and an Introduction which I have already written.
I am committed to even possibly writing this book in a week. 5-10 pages each day. I don’t know if that is possible. But if I get up early and work on it after the kids are in bed, then I can knock out as many pages as possible. The book will NOT be perfect or completely comprehensive, but it will be a snapshot of a vast subject, one in which I am most interested in. I have thoughts about it all the time and as I prayed at the beginning of the summer, I got confirmation from God (through a radio broadcast) on the specific topic I wanted to write about. My goal was to finish it by the end of the summer, so I have until the end of September now.
I write this blog tonight to commit to my readers this plan I have set my mind to. I also wonder if there are wonderful plans God has put in your heart to spend at least 30 minutes a day or maybe one session (2-3 hours) a week to do, be it a collage, knitting, sewing, cleaning, a project, working out…anything, break it up into something accomplishable for you at this time in your life, and DO IT! You CAN truly do all things through Christ Who strengthens you.
