Just For Today For Writers

Kenneth L. Holmes penned the famous “Just For Today” that is used by al-anon. His wisdom addresses a one-day-at-a-time approach to life that could certainly be adopted by anyone – not just those struggling with substance abuse. You can read this timeless encouragement at .

What are some things that writers could do “just for today”?

Just for today
I will recommit to this crazy world of
solitude where my thoughts cannot be ignored.

Just for Today
I will prayerfully delve deeper
into the written Word of the God of the universe.
The Bible

Just for Today
I will seek His wisdom and then sit
silently and wait to hear His still, small voice.

Just for Today
I will ignore the Discourager.

Just for Today
I will encourage others
who seek to be heard by reading
their work and applauding their success.

Just for Today
I will be aware of others whose needs are greater
than mine and return to their world.

Just for Today
I will graciously accept help from those
who give their time to read and critique my work.

Just for Today
I will patiently move toward the
very best I can offer to bring glory, not to myself, but
to the Author and Finisher of my faith,
Jesus Christ.

Just for Today
May you be inspired and
your time for writing, protected.
God Bless.

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."

(Psalm 119:105, NASB)

I love this, Nancy... I truly take life one day at a time and these are special thoughts.
I wish I could have spent more time talking to you at the many people, so little time. You truly were the quiet one!
