This blog has been around for two years now.
So, here’s a quick note since it’s the 2nd Birthday of this space.
“If I ever do get to be a fine writer, it will not be because I am a fine writer but because God has given me credit for a few of the things He kindly wrote for me.” -Flannery O’Conner
There have been times filled with words and inspiring writing and there have been days where my brain felt stuck and I couldn’t write a thing. But still, I put my fingers to the keys and type away. Sometimes the things I write are terrible; sometimes they actually sound ok. I know I’m not a fine writer, as Flannery described, but I do know that what I write can affect people. I’m not writing just for the sake of doing it. I want to take this ability God has given and use it for His glory.
I think that’s what we all should be doing. Using the things we’re given to bring God praise. Multiplying our talents (Matthew 25). Growing the Kingdom. Making disciples.
Whatever comes, we should take the spark inside and spread the fire to the people around us. We often talk about catching the world on fire or changing the world, but we need to spread the Holy Ghost fire to the people nearest to us. We need to change ourselves before we can ever think about changing the world. Start small. Keep building. The small things will add up. One day, every brick and every little bit of mortar we’ve laid will be a beautiful piece in the story God is writing us all into.
