Easy? No!

Lately, I have been doing this writing thing called NaNoWriMo (I learned of it on my friend Emii's blog, Girlz 4 God). The goal is to write 50,000 words (or your choice of words) by the end of November (it starts November 1st). And is it easy? No! It takes a lot of committment to write that much (I only have around 10,500 words so far). It reminds me of life. God doesn't promise it will be easy. The NaNoWriMo people didn't promise NaNo would be easy. But, God DOES promise that He will be with us through all the trials. Check out this awesome passage:

But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. when you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." - Isaiah 43:1-3a

I know I posted a little about this topic in the last post, but it's just been sticking with me. It's pretty cool. GOD'S pretty cool. Scratch that, He's REALLY cool, He's AWESOME, He's JUST, He's POWERFUL, He's LOVING, He's UNDERSTANDING, He is GOOD, and He is MIGHTY TO SAVE.

That is such an encouraging verse, Talia.=) You are so right about God being with us always!

That is SO true! I'd written almost 15,000 words when I realized I just didn't like my novel -- where it was going, what my characters were like, etc -- so I started again. I've gotten up to 7,500 words, but I've decided that even though I might not reach the NaNo goal of 50,000, at least I like what I'm writing!

And congrats on your word count so far! I love this verse, by the way.

Hey, Emii! THANKS! I think that is VERY, VERY true - why write something if you don't like it? And I'm not ABSOLUTELY SURE if I'm going to finish my word-count goal (50,000), but I DO want to finish the book, even if it's after November!!! God bless you!
