Day 2: Strength of Belief–Great (Whomever You Are) Challenge

Believe.

What an interesting word.

We test what we believe by actually carrying it out.  The worn-out example that you don’t sit in a chair you don’t believe will hold you comes to mind.

If you don’t believe you can be whatever it is your heart deeply longs for, you won’t act on it.

I believe I am a writer.  My belief wavers, however, when I think about what that looks like in a year, in five years, in ten years.  What do I believe about this calling God has given me?  –What do you believe about the calling God has given you?

I believe my very soul tremors as I write.  From journaling as a young child to reelections in my “older” age, writing is who I am.  My words reflect my thoughts, which reflect my beliefs.  It is the visualization of the internal realities.  And as I sit on my couch, my head laid back and eyes closed, fingers typing away (grateful I paid attention in keyboarding class in high school–thank you, Mr. Pittman)–my heart spills in the written word.

And I get to see what I am feeling.  No trouble believing that I write–like believing that I breathe.  Where it will all go, however, is more scary than I am willing to contemplate.  So I write, and write, and write.

And pray God will drop dead center in my way and point the way to go.

What do you believe about your calling?
