Ps 91 (NKJV)

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

New Year's Resolutions - NOT!

Typically at this time of year many people make New Year's Resolutions. I have never been one to do this. The resolutions typically don't last much past January.

I have set for myself some goals this year. Something concrete that I can work toward. I have begun working, in small ways, toward all of them.

  • Lose weight - I won't discuss here how much, but I will be posting here on Thursdays about my journey - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
  • Finish my current WIP (work in progress) - a Scottish Historical. I have just over 10,000 words.
  • Enter my completed MS (manuscript) in the Genesis contest - though it still needs a bit of editing.
  • Enter either or both of the above into various other contests, as the Lord leads.

My word of the year: courage. I need courage to step out and enter ANY contest. No one has actually read the completed manuscript all the way through, except me.

So, here's to the new year and accomplishing all the goals that I've set.

What goals have you set for yourself this year?

Trembling under HIS wings,

  1. Good luck on the Genesis - it's a great contest! I'm getting ready to enter, too. And I love your word. I've been praying over mine today, keep thinking 'fearless', but waiting while a few others swirl through my heart. Either way, I know being fearless will have a huge part in my year this year - kinda goes along with your 'courage':)


I hope you have been blessed by my blog. Thank you for your comments.
