Every Friday she gives a single word as says write for five minutes straight, no editing, just writing.
This mornings word is WRITE.
As i pondered this I had a few things on my mind this morning: finish my devotions, write my five minute Friday post and get out the door for my bloodwork this morning at 800. I felt like I had a full head. I didn't know what to write and then I saw this verse and I knew what God would have me say. :)
And sometimes when I feel that busy I have a hard time concentrating and doing what I want to do. I like taking the time to write down some of my thoughts with my devotions, it helps me to focus. I love that I've discovered PicMonkey so I can make simple graphics of the verses I'm choosing to focus on.
One of the things that I am learning to do is to include my faith in what I write and doing my devotions and writing them down is helping me to oh... get a bit clearer in what I think and what I believe. Just reading isn't enough. But I'm also learning that just writing isn't enough either. I need to be focused and clear. I need to show who I am and WHY I am who I am. It's all God you know. If it wasn't for God I simply wouldn't be. So I need to talk about him and how he affects life for me. Not only in my religious life... but in my real every day solid to earth life... in my homeschooling of my son, in my raising of rabbits, in my daily activities of shopping, meeting the neighbours, and having fun with friends.
But it's not so easy you know. I so much like to keep things compartmentalized that learning to be open about my faith has been an exercise in trust, in just trusting that God will make it all okay, that I don't need to worry on being rejected. God has a purpose for my life and I just need to live it for him... and be honest about what I am doing.
And so I learn to write not only about my homeschooling and my rabbits and my family... but I learn to write how my faith in interwoven into it all.
Let's just write shall we? Write about the things that truly matter and our faith is part of that is it not?
STOP (okay.. I went 10 seconds over). :)
