Something between a letter and a conversation

Lord, it’s been like this

I want to write about You, only You.

I’ve been off the writing scene

I feel like I have such good words to put on paper,

Compelling stories for my readers

But I don’t know if that’s what You want?

Do you want me to write about what’s happening in my heart

Or where I’ve been

What my current struggles are

Do You want me to write about this world

What I see

The questions I have

My perspective and opinions on the state of our temporary home

I wonder if that brings glory to You at all

Like, there are people who have written amazing books, blogs, poetry …all those beautiful letter tapestries

People love those, I do too

Do You?

Honestly, I haven’t fully understood how You feel about the way we use our gifts and talents

Or rather

I wonder if You are cool with how we use them

The cry of my heart is to bring You glory

Am I doing that?

By talking about things that aren’t obviously spiritual but do affect our spiritual lives?

Maaan, I’m struggling to find the words

But I have this question

How can I bring you glory as a writer?

Should I take that feeling of oddity I have posting a sign of rebuke from You?

Or is it just a byproduct for tapping into uncharted territory

All I want is to please You

To walk in Your ways and do Your will


Prior to writing this I was heavily conflicted. A huge part of being a writer involves making plenty of notes, journaling and keeping most of what you write to yourself. This is one of those pieces I didn’t know whether to share or keep.

I don’t know if you can relate to this, but if you’ve been in a similar place (in any capacity) please share how you navigated?

What is your writing process? How does your writing and other parts of you intersect?

    Thank you for sharing this piece of writing you normally keep to yourself. I have struggled with these feelings myself. I often wonder if I’m waisting precious time writing stories that have no heavenly value. I came to the conclusion we have to leave it up to Him. I don’t think the Lord would have given a person the desire to follow this path if there wasn’t a reason.

    I always have these struggles. Been there with those conversations with God and I find strength and comfort in knowing He gives the ideas for most of what I do on the blog. He is the creative genius I’m simply a channel. When in doubt on whether I’m using my writing gift well, I’ve learnt to have the me and God moments and trust that He is leading me, where I err, His grace is sufficient. I always have a notebook with me to write down my ideas for a blog, books that I plan to write 😂😂. Hope you find strength,rest and peace in God over this.

    Yes definitely had these questions and thing is God gave to you to use it for good.
    Whatever you writing about if it causing a positive impact then great.
    Then just write as long as you believe he will guide you because in us he wills us to do.

    We want to do perfect for God but he is already perfecting us through him.

    When I was first thinking of starting my GodChild Blog I was a brand new born-again Christian with all of 4 weeks under my belt of commitment to Jesus. I confessed to my spiritual mentor that I was thinking of starting a Blog and all he said was, “Let God lead.” Of course that was the very best, and in fact only, advice he could have given. Sometimes I need reminders. Sometimes what I believe I am doing in service to God drifts into being more in service to my own worldly aims. I think I wrote about this at least once already — when my posts were starting to feel forced and powered by my worldly self rather than by the Holy Spirit. (“WordPress tells me I’ve posted 57 days in a row so I can’t possibly interrupt that streak!” … That was a worldly goal of worldly-me, not the leadership of the Spirit.) So I took a little break to pray for guidance and found that once again the Holy Spirit was leading me and powering my words. Submit, submit, submit (a hard lesson for me to learn); don’t try to get God to conform to my hopes and plans but submit to His, and He will guide you. That’s my thought anyway. I am praying for you.

      The prayers are needed and appreciated 🥺❤️

      Thank you for sharing your experience. Indeed it also became a chore at some point and felt like I was doing it to make myself feel good.

      True — we need to submit. It’s not that easy, but I keep yielding

  8. I have been feeling like this for several weeks, is my writing honoring God, do my writings help others? Or am I out of the will of God? I have been praying over this……..

  9. I have some writings that I debate whether or not to share, I usually end up sharing but at a later date. When I get discouraged about writing God always reminds me of why He gave me this gift and that I am doing it for His glory, not for me. I thank Him everyday for my gift and also the platform He has provided. As long as my writing connects or impacts one person, its worth it. Keep going!

    Deep thoughts. I believe when we write, even though we feel it’s not our best version. We are already honouring God especially if the message is positive, comes from a good place with kind intentions.

    Wow!
    While I read this wonderful poem, a Bible passage came up in my mind and I trust that more than it sounds or look the Holy Spirit will give you a clearer picture ☺

    Matthew 5:16
    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    I pray God helps us all. Thanks for sharing!
