Synopsis Thursday

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.19.2006

I have a full day to work on my synopsis today. I need to get my heroine's character. It's worrying me--I need to stop worrying so I can let the ideas flow. It's in God's hands.

Bible in 90 days: day 11. I'm now in Deuteronomy. Moses is taking a long time to die. I thought he'd die sometime in Numbers, but he's recapping things for the Israelites right now.

I've been falling into an old habit of making decisions based on fear of what will happen to me if I make the wrong choice. It's wrong thinking. I can't prevent bad things from happening just by always doing things right, that's stupid. I need to trust God to tell me if I'm doing something wrong so I can right my relationship with Him, and I need to trust Him to carry me through the tough times. It's that simple. I don't know why I keep thinking I need to do something differently.

Writing: Lord, please help me to write what will please You.

Diet: Well, I did 30 minutes on the bike this morning. I had a rather large pulled pork sandwich for lunch, and some casserole for dinner. Now to see if I can resist too much late night snacking.

    Man, can I relate to that. When I read this, it was like a bell went off in my head. I do this with writing--contests, agents, contacts, etc. Such a good point, Camy. My eyes have opened!

  2. I think fear can paralyze all of us at times. Some people have other fears, I suppose, but I am with you. Let's hand it over to God and pray His will for the works of our hands. We give Him our hands to do His work.

    Hang in there. Praying for you.
    Hugs!

  3. Fear. Truly a four-letter word! I live with it daily. Slowly but surely, I'm learning to turn it all over to God. My friends help! :)

  5. Yeah, I'm walking okay. I'm still trying to break this slight limp I have now, and I'm starting to walk up stairs now. Thanks for asking and praying. :)
