On Writing Well: The Revelation



The Revelation:

I don't have to know what to write to be a writer.
I have to be willing to be used by God...
willing to write what He gives me to write...
willing to exchange the fear,
the worry,
the anxiety
that someone might not like what I write,
the memories of red and green ink all over my papers
that I worked so hard at writing in college,
the rejection of my youth,
my natural focus on me me me.

I have to be willing to give,
willing to be a channel for God's blessing to flow through.

My source of what to write is God himself
and what His Holy Spirit reveals to me.
In His Word,
in His Presence.
All life flows from Him.

  2. Hi Laura, like you I let the spirit guide me when I am writing. I don't worry too overly much about what people think of it. If I am guided by the spirit I know He won't let me down. God bless you! xoxo
