I just realized that the NaBloPoMo writing prompts have gone completely out the window. I haven't even looked at them in at least a week. Depression, worry, and stress took their toll. I am feeling better now, but the prompts still hold no interest for me. Maybe that is for the best. I enjoy the occasional challenge of writing for a prompt, but I also need the release of writing wherever my fingers & God lead me. It is a wonderful feeling to sit down at the computer and just type. To see where my heart wants to go.
Heart, fingers, and God. Not my brain. Because most of the time my brain wants to go to dark places that fill me with fear and uncertainty. That brain, it is an important gift from God. But all to often I find it has been overwhelmed by the worries of life. My heart, on the other hand, yearns for the light of God's love. It is more willing to trust, to be still and see what God will do. My heart instinctively follows the light. My brain worries and rationalizes and over analyzes. It is not really good at being still.
The writing prompts have been a challenge. And some have even been fun. But I think I am done with them for the time being. I think I need to follow my inner prompts for a while and see where that takes me. :)
P.S. It is Thursday and I would be so happy if you clicked here to see what I am thankful for.
P.S.S. I saw this on Facebook last night and it spoke to me. It said, "post me on your blog, someone out there needs to see me." So, here you go somebody.....
