Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Am I on the right road, here? Is my navigation system working? Maybe I entered the wrong address, because I’m still not sure I belong in the this writing community. Is this my destination? Am I a writer? WAIT – that’s anxiety talking.
I’m writing, so I guess that answers tat least one of those questions. It’s the first question that’s challenging me. Lord, I believe You put this desire in my heart because it is Your desire for me.
This is one way I can share His word with others. I’m not the type to walk up to someone at a bus stop and start preaching, so that’s out. I can’t tell you the last time I stood a bus stop, but you know what I mean. He gives us each gifts and talents to use according to His purpose.
I belong to a community of believers, to a local church, and to Christ. I have been “given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good” (1 Cor 12:7). That settles it for me. I DO belong to this community of writers, I AM a writer. I need only surrender and allow the Spirit to work. He will do the rest, I just have to show up, prayed up!
This is the October writing challenge from Five Minute Friday. The plan is to successfully post everyday. We write for five minutes (unedited and that’s a challenge) and stop. Visit FMF to see more posts.
