What Keeps Me Going….

My novel is going painfully slow…

All I want is to be done.  To throw in the towel and say “it’s not worth it”.  To wash my hands and give it to God.

Most days I have an inkling of this.

For I only get 2-3 pages edited in one sitting, which is usually 2-3 hours long.

It sucks.

No sugar coating that.

And then I get to a scene in my novel that takes my breath away.

That has a life on its own…and I certainly am unsure how that happened.

And I say to myself, “This is what keeps me going…”

For I know if it impacts me, it will impact you and hopefully more so since I know it’s all make-believe.  For the most part.

Putting your heart and soul into words and on paper is never easy.  In fact, I would say it’s one of the hardest tasks man does.

Yet the reward is unfathomable.

And I can only dream you will one day think so as well…

    God has designed life to be like that. He puts many hills in our life, that we need to claim. Some are tall some are not so talk. But at the end of the day when we reach the top of the highest hill the reward is so great. Jesus claimed many hills to point out his message, and so can you as you follow in his footsteps .

    Keep on keeping on dear. I take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work. I enjoying reading your comments and I find them so helpful in my Christian walk.. You are such a blessing. You are a wonderful vessel in The Kingdom of GOD. May our Good LORD continue to guide and use you. You are such a treasure. When I read your note, the following passage from Corinthians came to mind;

    2 Corinthians 4:7-18 New International Version (NIV)
    7 “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
    13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[a] Since we have that same spirit of[b] faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal”.

    My love and blessings to you and your family always…
    Bee Sarah
