#write31days: Day 27 – Overcome

Jo / October 28, 2017

“I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage, but wait for the Lord.” -Ps. 27:13-14 “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome…

#write31days: Day 8 – Truth

Jo / October 8, 2017

I couldn’t think of anything to write on this topic today so I thought I’d find some Scriptures to meditate on instead. “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.” (Ps 51:6) “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to…

#write31days: Day 7 – Hold

Jo / October 7, 2017

Do you ever feel like your life is on hold? Like, there’s something more waiting for you? Maybe you can identify the more, maybe you cannot. Maybe you know what it is that has you “stuck” and maybe you do not. But, regardless of being able to articulate the whys and whats behind it all, you know there’s more. And…

#write31days: Day 6 – Story

Jo / October 6, 2017

I witnessed an event once where new members of a group wrote hurtful, hateful, mean or discouraging words, phrases and thoughts that had been said about them, to them or that they thought about themselves onto shirts with Sharpies. Then they were blindfolded and older members of the group came around with duct tape, covered what was written and wrote…

#write31days: Day 5 – Trust

Jo / October 5, 2017

I have trust issues. My trust issues are not with man, though. They are with God. That’s hard to admit but it’s true nonetheless. I don’t trust Him. Not fully. Instead, I’ve realized that I trust God with the “big stuff” in my life (you know, those crises moments and seasons) but don’t trust Him an inch with the small…

#write31days: Day 4 – Hope

Jo / October 4, 2017

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” – Pr. 13:12 If I were to be really honest with you, I’d have to say that I hope for lots of things. Financial freedom, chocolate to appear anywhere I am, the opportunity to work for myself one day, and the ability to lose weight…

#write31days: Day 3 – Create

Jo / October 3, 2017

I’m a creative. It’s taken me years to admit that but it’s true. I’d always wanted to be a creative but never saw myself as one. Until recently. In the last five years or so it has become oh-so-clear to me that I was created to create. I was designed to design. I was made to make. I have other interests…

#write31days: Day 2 – Tell

Jo / October 3, 2017

“Just tell it like it is.” That’s my initial thought when conversing with people. Just be honest. Be real. But, sometimes, telling it like it is can get me into trouble. Words can hurt just as much as they can heal. James says that there is power in the tongue of men. So I attempt to temper my words to be…

#Write31Days: Challenge Accepted!

Jo / October 2, 2017

#write31days: Day 16 – ReadOctober is always an interesting month. In this part of the world, it’s usually the time that the Fall season actually starts making an appearance. Yay! Although, it’s also not uncommon to see 90+ degree weather during the month either so…maybe I’m a liar. Boo. But October is also the month that a lot of bloggers…
