As I was reflecting upon the past year and some of my blog posts, I started thinking about all that has been said and why.
For more than a year now, I have been writing as God has inspired me to write based on His Word. At least that’s what I believe. My early morning posts should attest to that on a daily basis. This is the ministry that God has encouraged me to do so that others will also be encouraged and enlightened. I pray that the goal was met–people being encouraged and enlightened that is. If you have a personal favorite blog–feel free to re-blog or let me know. I usually have to “look back” at them to understand the responses I get.
Some of my posts have been political rants or personal vents and some promotions for my books. Blogging–as a way of communicating, self-reflecting, and learning has become such an integral part of my life that I don’t see it ending any time soon.
At any rate–I would love to say what will be (I don’t know), but I can say with certainty is that–I’ll be here–blogging away, writing what is in my heart and praying that something is said to encourage yours.
Thanks for your support and may God bless your every endeavor that honors Him. I have no resolutions other than hearing from God and obeying. Here’s to–reflections of The Word!
That is so cool that you take the time to listen to him, then write! How do you write books and keep a blog as well? You must be very organized.
Carolyn, Thanks for the kudos! I read scripture every morning and rely upon something I read to inspire what I write. If nothing I read inspires, I talk to Him in prayer and then search the scriptures until a theme or concern speaks to me.
The books I write are a response to what I see happening in society for the most part–except for the fiction. That is a combination of finding means to incorporate Christian principles into entertaining media and allowing my imagination to soar! I create a story map for each book–from the beginning to the end of the journey; determine who my characters are and what they’re like and then–as I write the story unfolds–usually going in another direction. I just have to be open to allowing the Holy Spirit room to work. I love what He does with my stories.
Anyway, that’s what I do. Not so much organization as it is determination to meet self-imposed deadlines. Of course–I really have to listen well to make sure I hear what He’s saying. Thanks again for your involvement with my words [?].
Thanks for that, that really gives me some good ideas to start out the new year with. God Bless you and thank you for your continued encouragement.
To encourage one another–it’s why we’re here [?]!
