I’m a writer…..so then what am I to write?

Standard

I’m a writer….

Or am I????

“I write; therefore, I am a writer”

For many, many years I have felt that I’m really.really supposed to write.

But more and more have I felt that tug in my heart in the recent year,

And so. here I am; blogging to you.

But it’s bigger than that; My God is bigger than that.

I have so much to write, so much to share:

To share my story
My trials
My triumphs
My past
My present
My future…

I want to start my book. Ok, I NEED to start my book. God said so…I know it!

I’m struggling, where does one begin when their platform is so broad?

• I had 2 drug addicted parents which are both clean today (PRAISE.THE.LORD) and I want to share a story of redemption.

• I was a teen mother, a single mother, and I want to share a story of God’s Grace.

• I was am a victim of rape (ouch…many people don’t know that yet) and I didn’t either until years later, and I want to share a story of freedom from shame.

• I have and continue to struggle with depression and anxiety, (and possibly so does my boy) and I want to share a story of Joy

• I have 5 boys who completely shake my inner being on a daily basis and I want to share a story a Gods continued peace.

• And my husband, my sweet severely ADHD (or more) refuses to medicate husband, and I want to share a story of Gods healing.

(To name just a few……)

I have prayed, and prayed, and prayed (I think He may be tired of hearing my cries)….it’s quite possible, He’s answering…..but am I hearing?

Am I listening?

Am I responding?

Sometimes, I really think I’ve heard….and I get a little excited, and JUST THEN, I read of a new book coming out, or a new blog page starting up on THE VERY TOPIC I just felt lead to persue….and I feel defeated.

Or, I think..”How can I possibly minister to others, when my house, and my boys, and my marriage are littered with imperfections…?

“In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears”{Psalms 18:6}

Am I taking this seriously?

Is my family taking this seriously?

And then there is the “techy” side to things….
(but maybe that will give me something else to write about…)

  1. I can relate to the feeling of having so much to share, and the discouragement of finding others sharing the exact things I had wanted to share. But from the other point of view, as someone who has benefitted immensely from hearing and reading many different view points, angles, hearts and testimonies on similar circumstances, I have always come away encouraged each time. So be encouraged to share your heart, others may not read what you have read from others, and they may be greatly touched by your testimony!

  2. Only you can share from your experiences. And if you pick one thing from that broad platform to write about, all the other things will shape that writing because it is all a part of you. Whatever you do, do not let your discouragement keep you from putting pen to paper.

  3. I read somewhere else, that you “write from where you are.” I say – do it!

    And see where God takes you!

    Thanks for linking up1
