For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we could walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

"Are you a born writer? Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace? In the end the question can only be answered by action.

Do it or don't do it.

If you don't do it . . . [y]ou shame the angels who watch over you, and you spite the Almighty, who created you and only you with your unique gifts, for the sole purpose of nudging the human race one millimeter farther along its path back to God

Don't cheat us of your contribution.

Give us what you've got!" (Steven Pressfield)

"We've all been there.

Everyone who has a pulse has experienced resistance, and it usually comes in the form of procrastination.

[But] resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates the strength of the Resistance. Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That's why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there'd be no Resistance.

If you feel any degree of fear or anxiety about acting on the desire God has put in your soul--then you must do it.

Live the desires of your heart.

God has put you here to do certain good for Him--you, and only you. Not your parents, not your friends, not your pastors--you.

Fight resistance.

Find resolve." (Palmer Chinchen)

May we all do what we were created to do and bring glory and honor to our Creator.

Steven Pressfield's book "Do It" got me back on track with writing and the Domino Project #Trust30 got me writing everyday.

With God's help I am plowing through Resistance, my own and the enemy's. I never realized before how much Resistance comes from inside of us.

Mine comes in the form of perfectionism. I don't post because it isn't perfect. But, it will never be so I post. I do it afraid. But I do it, every day.
