I wanted to take ""The Lighthouse Poetry Contests" further by designing a short story contest. This contest will allow you to share with others the experience you have had with God and your testimonies of how He has worked and works in your life. You will have the opportunity to write about your blessings and express your thankfulness that He is and works in your life.

How does God bless your life? Have you had a dangerous situation and didn't know how to get out of it? Do you count your blessings daily and thank Him for them? How did He help you get through a difficult time in your life?

I hope you find encouragement here and share your testimonies and the love you have for God. It is a wondrous feeling, the love that comes from within one's soul. It wants to burst out and be seen by all. Come along and share with me, HIS LOVE!


In the dead of night, He is there beside you.

Short Story 1000 words or less

"MARCH's PROMPT"

"What verse do you use to get you through those tough times? "


What verse do you use to get you through those tough times? Do you stop and ask for His guidance in those times? Did you pray and read the word of God for direction? Getting in the word of God will help Him show you what to do. Did you ask God to show you what to do? He will speak to you through His word.

Did you know that finding that one verse in the Bible will help you and guide you to making the right decision. You will find the scripture that will show you what to do by looking in the index in the Bible to help you find the word needed to show you what you need in making that decision.

Do you build your own diary in the word of God? Find the verse and make notes in the Bible. {“This is when I had doubts about such and such!”} You build an account of your life. Then when you face one of those times again you can go to those verses. You will read it and know that God got you through it, time and time again. It helps build up your faith. It gets you ready for the next time you face it. God has given you the way to live. What to do, how to do, when to do it, you have it in your hands and He wants it in your heart and in your mind to follow Him.

God will remove our fear when we come to Him and ask for His advice.

Choose a verse that guides you through those tough times and show (vs tell) us how He got you through it. Highlight the verse in {c:lgreen} the Verse you have chosen and {b} it , so I can see it. Add the prompt, and verse used to the bottom of your story in a dropnote. Notes

Please BOLD and HIGHLIGHT "The verse you use to get you through those tough times? " in LGREEN so it stands out for my eyes, the rest in BLACK... LOL, It is much easier for me. Thank you *Heart*

Please NO more than 1000 words and make sure you read all the RULES, SORRY to repeat but sometimes you just have to. I just don't want you to disqualify yourself, this is where RULE #9 applies. Please, add a dropnote that will include word count, the prompt, and any other info needed in it at the BOTTOM of your page.


How to do a DROPNOTE: {Dropnote:"Notes"} Add the information you want here. Example: Prompts, definitions, the story behind the story, etc. {/dropnote}
