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