It seems to be the hot topic in the blogosphere today.

I won't ask the question "Do you ever doubt yourself?"  Because if you don't, to be honest, I'm not sure I want to be your friend.  Hee hee. just kidding.  Maybe.

But there is One in whom I have no doubt.  And if He gave me the desire to create, the skill to write, and the ability to grow and learn, who am I to argue?  Or so I have to keep reminding myself over and over and over...
And if you want to be inspired, head over to Shannon Messenger's blog, Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe.  That first Gavin Rossdale sketch may end up in my nightmares.  Just go read it.

  1. All the time. Like this morning, I wanted to give up completely. It stinks really. I have to keep reminding myself that doubt does not come from God. (Unless of course you are doing something evil, but that is a discussion for another blog).

  2. Love this post... I am can sometimes be pretty negative and down in the dumps when it comes to my writing but then I remind myself that I am good, I know what I am doing and then talk it out with my hubby. He makes me realize that I can continue on even when a little stuck!

    So still be my friend!!!

  3. True, if He believes in us then we should too. It's just so hard to at times. But maybe because we don't give up, and we work hard at improving our craft, then maybe we do believe in ourselves after all--we just don't always realize it.

  4. I feel like this all the time! And I'm glad what you said, I don't doubt Him, I know things will work out and that He's on my side, helping me through this constant uphill climb. Thanks :)

    It looks like me and you have even more reasons to be friends ;)

  5. I want to give up a million times a day. Rejection is tough (especially while watching others succeed)

    Many of the people I started my process with have reached the goal and talk to me A LOT less than they used to. That makes it a bit worse.

  6. I run into doubt all the time ..

    but I don't think I could live w/ myself if I knew I had never tried.

    that keeps me pushing on

  7. Great post. I fight with doubt all the time. I left you an award on my blog!

  8. He always gives me strength too, especially when I'm feeling like I can't write anymore. I remember that He wouldn't have given me the drive if He didn't think I could pull it off.

  9. VERY good reminder. And I loved Shannon's blog today, too!

  10. I doubt myself constantly. But I'm persistent, hard-working, and like you said, rely on Someone who believes in me more than anyone. So I have faith that my dreams will come true someday.

    And like Tess said, it's hard to live with myself if I failed to try rather than if I tried and failed.

  11. I'm always doubting myself, my skills, my choices. But I try to fight it, every single day.
    Thanks for the reminder, the push to keep trying! :-)
