This space is mine. I have the opportunity to fill it with my opinions and ideas, and truth and grace and all the bits that make up the DNA of who I am. Oh, but it’s more than even that. It’s a gift to be able to write, to put out words that will land in someone’s else’s sphere (Tweetable). Incredible how these invisible wires connect us all. And what a responsibility to be purposeful with what I have.
I want to give good things. I want to encourage and inspire and be known and know others. I want to love people, even if I can’t see them. This space is my living room, where I say,
“Pull up a chair and get comfy. Would you like some coffee or tea? Let’s not waste time on chit chat, let’s delve under surfaces, throw away the manufactured life, and live whole and free and real. Are you with me?” (Tweetable)
This place, my blog, will have purpose and I will find joy in it (or I won’t do it). Also? I want to glorify God here. Enjoying writing is enjoying Him because He weaved in me the desire to write – it is all glory to Him!
Friends, why do you want to write? Are you compelled? Do you have a message to share?
