Week Three Questions
Were you able to meet (or exceed!) your goal this week?
Yes! I caught up by Tuesday and began working ahead. I finished a document (the longest one) and now have only two much shorter documents remaining in my commentary project.
I also edited 13 chapters of an upcoming book for an authoress friend. 🙂
Where did you get the bulk of your writing accomplished? In the quiet of your room, outside on the patio, on the bus?
I seem to accomplish the most on a couch in the middle of our house. I can stay there for extended periods of time without an aching back, and there is room to change positions enough to be comfortable. Furthermore, there is a great view out of the large windows just in front of me. Quiet is nice, but it usually does not happen.
Share a couple of your favorite snippets!
Do not steal yourself from God and give yourself to something else.
Zech. 8:9 – Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words…
CC – Hear God’s voice. We receive strength through our ears. If we choose to listen to the world, we are only weakening ourselves. As we choose to listen to Yahweh, we are gaining more and more capacity to receive the fullness of His strength. Let your hands be strong – through hearing His word.
Rejoice – even if the purification and purging process proves painful and protracted.
Malachi 3:17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels;
BC – This is a covenant oath. Those who fear God and speak often to one another about Him are claimed by Him. Their covenant identity is based upon Him. Rest in being His! Our identity of being His should cause us to speak even more often to others, encouraging them in Him. How can we be disheartened when we belong to Him? Never forget that you are His jewel!
Have you introduced a new character into your story? Tell us about his/her personality.
Malachi. His name means “my messenger” and he was God’s covenant prophet and messenger to God’s people.
List the favorite foods of your main characters.
I have always thought that perhaps God’s favorite food is pomegranates because He has Moses and the tabernacle-builders sculpt pomegranates on so many different elements of the tabernacle, the priests’ clothing, and so on.
Introduce us to the antagonist in your story. Does he/she prefer crunchy or creamy peanut butter?
I suppose that the antagonist is the Devil and somehow I think he would prefer whichever kind he can use to lure more people away from God. I’m thinking crunchy, but who am I to know such a matter?
