Enough about insecurity. Today is about bravery. Can someone please send me some? I have a problem.
Blast. I’m behind again. It’s Day 28 and my last two days have gone unpublished. I gotta get caught up because I want to finish on time! If I can do that, then it will mean I’ve improved on the whole late thang, right? Yep, right. It’s a good thing I have my own blog. I can do this 31-day thing however I want.
I’ve been staying up WAY too late. I really should be in bed, but I’ve been watching a little too much TV, and then there’s this forced blogging thing. I know it’s hard to believe, but I really don’t have anything good to say. I don’t have much in the way of naked writing either, but I need a break. Let’s talk about TV.
Okay enough about me and my security issues. Let’s talk about Jesus and his security. Yeah I know. Jesus, God, God, Jesus. Still. Actually, I shouldn’t assume everyone reading this believes Jesus was or is God, but even if you believe he was just a man, you can learn from his ability to handle criticism.
Today, I’m going to talk more about insecurity. I wish I could claim how secure I am as a person <especially now that I’m forty, but it’s just not the case. If you are wondering why I’m sharing this about myself, maybe this blog isn’t for you or maybe it is or maybe you forgot I’m writing naked.
I’m still reading the book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. I just finished reading a chapter titled, “Know Yourself That You May Know God-Becoming Your Authentic Self.” I shared a few weeks ago about my anxiety over this book, but I am loving it and learning some interesting things.
I didn’t write anything worth sharing yesterday but will attempt to post something tonight. I’ve done okay, for the most part, on this 31-day writing thing and don’t plan on giving up. Let me tell you why.
My sister bought me a stuffed bear for my 9th birthday. I loved that teddy bear and slept with it most every night. I took it with me to sleepovers, and as I got older, to summer camp. I still make room for that bear in my bed. I’m surprised it doesn’t look as old as it is. We both should have more wrinkles than we do.
Guys, I’m exhausted. I haven’t done much naked writing lately. I was totally going to, but I watched a PG Movie with the family tonight instead. This post is going to be short and sweet or maybe just short, you get to decide. It’s a free country <Let’s hope it stays that way.
I need a good night’s sleep. Rather than digging deep and trying to come up with something good to say, I am sharing another poem. I wrote this one about ten years ago. It’s about seeking guidance, wisdom and discernment. It is a good reminder for me to trust God, maybe it is a good reminder for you too! Am I cheating on this 31-day writing thing? Maybe, maybe not. I still got another ten days. Next, I plan to write about insecurity <an absolute favorite topic of mine. Bravery too. So stay tuned.
