Well, I'm still at it. "It" being my goal to add approximately 20,000 words to a fiction manuscript I've written. Seems life wants to interfere with this goal most of the time. To center myself, I often turn to the Old Testament and some of my favorite verses:

"Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain."
Psalm 127:1a


"In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps." Proverbs 16:9

The completion and publication of the manuscript is my heart's desire. As long as I allow God to direct my steps and work toward His glory in all that I do, I will enjoy success. Only He knows if this includes the manuscript.

What goal are you struggling to achieve? I'd love to hear about it.


  1. I find myself always with a list of goals. It's funny though...each time I complete one...five more pop up. That's what makes life more complete.

  2. Very true. I do the same. I look at my list and think, "When I get this done..." and then I commit to more things.
