My message originates with God. When God is in control, the beauty of writing is that God is part of the process. He helps the messenger who then gives out the message. This is something I am learning and am moving forward with each week.
Sometimes we look back to see where we have come from. At other times we look forward to see where we are heading. Then there’s reality, where we are at this point in time. For some of us, we never quite arrive at that place where we want to be. If we let this stop us, it will impede our progress. Looking forward is critical to our success. A plan is needful too. Introspection is helpful but it also may be crippling. All depends. It can keep us stationary and immobile–when we become stuck looking backwards or inward. Action is to start a movement forward, the snowball effect. It helps to have a purposed approach to accomplishing our endeavors. This has been true for me in my various writing projects. I have a target audience, the Christian community. That is where I focus my creative energies.
My message matters. It is because God has given me its message. In my walk with God, there is something I have found that has made a “change-around” in my life. So much so, that I want to give my readers a taste of what I have learned so they might want it for themselves. My desire to share these thoughts comes from an inner compelling. It would be wrong of me to keep quiet because what I have to say is worth saying. It is real and genuine.
