IWSG Just Keep Swimming

IWSG Hi all today I’m co-host of Alex Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group. The other co-hosts are Tamara Narayan, Tonja Drecker, Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor, Lauren @ Pensuasion, and Julie Flanders. Be sure to stop by, say hello, and give these fine folks some love. 

My issue this month is more of an encouragement. Just Keep Swimming. Yes, it’s Dory’s theme song. Stuck in a rut? Spinning your wheels in the mud? Swimming in that black icky place with green stuff floating on the top? Sometimes you have to just keep swimming. We all have those trials of life we have to go through and no one or no thing will get us out. 

Perhaps it’s a test. Regardless, we’re going through it whether we like it or not. Best to find someone to walk with us, hold our hand, and give us words of encouragement as we go through that time. But we have to just keep swimming. We don’t always see the end from the beginning but we have to just keep swimming. 

We’ll get through it. And if you’re in one of those places let someone from the IWSG know you need support and someone to go through it with. I’m sure you’ll find a veteran of a similar trial that can help navigate through that dark icky place.

Cling to God is a book of devotionals for every day of the year. The aim is to encourage Christians in their faith, to help them think about their beliefs and learn more about God.
