the struggle

For all of January, Word Press is running once again a month-long blogging challenge and I have been invited to join them!

(Along with every other WP member! Giggles.)

I will be given a new daily writing prompt to inspire me to publish a post on my blog. There is no right or wrong way to respond to the prompts. Members who register take this opportunity to exercise their creativity and have fun! We can choose to respond with a story, a drawing, a poem, a photo, a comic strip, a recipe, or even a playlist.

Anything goes!

I am excited for this challenge because by participating in Bloganuary, I will join bloggers around the world in the shared goal of creating and/or solidifying a strong blogging habit. Also, with the Bloganuary community site, I’ll connect with and get to know others working toward similar goals. I just may even make some new blogging friends!!

This all excites me!

While I may not use the prompt every day – I do hope to use this challenge to strengthen my blogging habit, yet again. However, if I do use the prompt for the day I will be certain to attach the badge to clue you in!

Inspired by January 2nd’s prompt:

Are you brave?

I am a woman.

I am a wife.

I am a mother.

I am a grandmother.

I am His.

Those are definites.

It’s all the in-between, which I often struggle (to answer.)

Am I brave?

When I rest in Him…I am.

‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will also help you, I will also uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Isaiah 41:10

hugs n’ blessings to all those who trust in the great I AM – and become braver than they ever imagined!

  1. I love this, Dawn (not as much as I LOVE YOU,…but…I’m with YOU! I rest in HIM! I AM!! Please continue prayers. I was going to write today and I’ve been given an opportunity that will change the course of my life IF it’s of GOD! Particularly, my current living situation. I love you and hold you in my heart!

  2. I am His! And, because of Him, I know that He is my guide, my protector, my savior! I also know He places special people in our lives, to walk beside us on this journey home….like you! Wishing you special blessings on your January challenge…can’t wait to read your upcoming blog entries. To close today, I have also gifted a word and a saint for 2023. My word is “Blessings” and I am focused on seeing the blessings, especially the hidden ones, that come my way in 2023. And my saint for this year is someone close to both of our hearts, St. Monica. She is a woman of great faith, great perseverance, and a model for all mothers. I’m counting on her to show me how to live in her footsteps.
    God bless you
    Much love to you, my friend.

    1. OH, Nance! My heart swoons with you over Him. And what He has already gifted to you in this sacred word and Saint. I cannot wait to hear of all that unfolds for you, as a result of them both. I can only hope to model after the steps you will undoubtedly take as you grow in holiness seeking after Him. I love you and am BLESSED to call you friend. Hugs…..❤️❤️❤️


  3. Thank you. I will be pleased how this continues to inspire you. WordPress has not invited me on this blogging challenge but said hurrah! they think I write regularly and consistently. I am inspired to keep my post to a twice a week post. He ever inspires me. I love the challenge you have been given. I prayerfully ask that I will ever use my pen to honour HIM. Blessings and love my friend.

    1. As much or as little – I love each and every post you present, Faye. Mostly, because they ARE written with great honour and praise to HIM. Hugs to you for ALL you do in His name!💕
