The Double Minded Man

In the Bible, James says that the double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

I'm really having trouble writing. Yesterday I had nothing to post. I haven't done any work on my WIP, and now I feel like I can't do it. I think maybe I should work on bringing another idea to life. Something less personal. Having only very recently decided to go for it, I now find myself doubting whether it's a good idea. Uncertainty has paralysed me.

Anxiety is beating me up. My mind is battling hard to overcome the dictatorial authority of my feelings. It's been an exhausting and tough few days. Focus and purposeful action are elusive.

Are you struggling with anything at the moment?

  1. It seems if you don't have something you are struggling with then you mustn't be alive.

    1. You're right Cheryle. Marcus Aurelias said, 'Our life is a warfare and a mere pilgrimage.' Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  3. God is always in Square Pegs because he is always in me, but I know what you mean Delia. I am not going to attract new readers with all this gloom though, am I? Alas, it is all I have to offer atm.
