This blog has not been active for quite a while due to the normal life changes that come around but all during the time away from it I have longed to find my way back. I gave my excuses to myself as too busy, writer’s block, no one reads it, not relevant, etc., etc. But then a short little thought or word came to me saying, “I miss writing about my first love, Jesus Christ. HE is the one who has restored me over and over again when I felt my strength was gone. HE is the one who encouraged me to get back out there and allow my gifts to be used in the body of Christ once again. He is the one who gives me hope when things around me seem hopeless. HE is my ALL and as Paul said, “I determine to know nothing save Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Cor 2:1-2)
So, in the light of HIS light I pray that the Holy Spirit will enable me once again to write of my love for God, my wonder at His creation, and the brokenness that we all encounter in our lives as we try to walk the straight and narrow road that He has set out before us. That’s it!
I will endeavor to post on “The Road Back” at least once a week. Sometimes it may just be a book review but I ask that you pray for me as I am obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit and the discipline that writing requires.
Lord God, you know how I have loved writing since I was a child. You know how I love to study words and scripture and how I rely on your Holy Spirit to speak to me through those word studies and scriptures. Give me a freshness and a fire in my spirit to discipline myself in order to glorify you with words. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
