I read a post tonight written by A Opinionated Man entitled Just Write. http://aopinionatedman.com/2014/08/19/just-write/
Jason commented in his post the following “I simply write when I feel like writing and I feel like writing all the time.” As I read his words, I couldn’t help but think how much I like to write and feel like writing all the time too but the difference is that I am never sure what to write about that others might find interesting or enlightening. Of course that is my lack of self-esteem speaking; or is it my ego that doesn’t want to be crushed if nobody likes what I write?
“Just Write” says Jason. “Don’t think so hard about it” Sounds like good advice to me! There are many things I think about in the course of my days as I go about my daily activities, whether it be the Bible study I am participating in or something I have read in a devotional or my Bible. Sometimes it is about the current state of our country, our world, politics. I think about the things I would like to get accomplished in my life now that I am pretty much settled in after my move. There are many more things I could add to that list. Any one of them I could be writing about and there may be somebody who can relate to my thoughts and ideas.
Okay, I think I need to pay heed to what Jason wrote in his post and challenge myself to write something every day. I almost added the words “if possible” but decided that I was already setting myself up to come up with excuses to not write–Defeats the whole purpose of my challenge! (yes, I am good at that!)
I’m just going to put it into the Lord’s capable hands. Whenever I ask, He is more than happy to lead and guide me and give me the words to share with others. He is there for each and every one of us, if we but ask! So here goes, Lord! It’s you and me, on a quest to write almost every day. I cannot do it without you!
Thank you also, Jason, for your motivating words.
