And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

IWSG Faith and Encouragement

20131002-011129.jpg

My very first post, as a member of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I am honored and humbled to be part of a talented pool of writers. I have been blogging about six months. Each day, I have faith that my words will help someone. Times are tough and we all need encouragement to do what we do! 😀

Faith and courage are important in expressing ourselves. We must believe in ourself and our abilities. We all bring something to the table. It is always nice when others encourage us.

There is a vulnerability about sharing our life, goals, thoughts on paper. There will always someone who may not agree with our thoughts. That’s ok, we just have to let it go and move on.

This is where courage and knowing who we are comes unto play. When we know who we are, we can easily understand that it’s not about convincing someone that we’re right and they’re wrong. When we know who we are, there is a confidence and maturity to know everything is not about us.

We all have a story. We communicate differently. It’s liberating to have the freedom to write. It is always amazing when you publish a post and people actually like it! 😀

It’s a beautiful thing to express ourselves and someone provides positive feedback. A little bit of encouragement can go along way. In the various seasons of life, we experience things from different levels. To express our experiences, with others can be quite remarkable. Things in life can be tough. It’s always exciting when someone shares what they went through and it helps others. No matter what we are going through, we are never alone.

Things and stuff. Things and stuff is different for everyone. It’s always refreshing when someone provides an answer to our things and stuff. I am taking about how to handle things and stuff. I have found in my Christian walk that sometimes, we don’t know the next step or can’t see a way to move forward. Lots of times, we remain stuck because it’s comfortable. To grow and mature requires we look to ourself first. Nobody likes change. Change is also a part of life that moves us forward whether we like it or not.

To be continued next month. 😁

Being able to participant with other writers is a win win. Thanks Alex and God bless you for creating and bringing such talented writers into one place. 😀
