I love to write. When I was in 4th grade, I got a set of Judy Blume books. I loved her writing, thought it might be something I could do too, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Writing is a part of me; I truly think it is part of my ministry.
Lately, I’ve been really thinking about trying to grow my blog. My dream is to be a professional writer one day. But more than that I truly want to write for God. I read these different blogs and part of me envy them. I’m trying to participate in different blog hops and link ups. I’ve created a blog planner and begin to do research.
Yesterday, I tried to write a post, just to get one my blog. The words just wouldn’t come. Last night, I got to thinking about my writing and I remembered why I didn’t study journalism in college; I didn’t want have a career where I stood the chance of losing my passion. I don’t want to write just to write. I want to write to share my faith and try to make the world a better place. If God wants my blog to grow and go somewhere, then it will. I’d rather have a few readers who actually read and like my stuff (or not), than have a bunch of reader and have to write and put posts on my blog that don’t have my heart fully in them. I pray that Gods leads (and that I willing follow) me down the path that He sees fits for my writing.
