Writers ADVANCE Boot Camp for me was like a coming out of the shadows by searching to learn more about how to write better, I wanted to learn to use my hands more effectively to war through the pieces I will write on the computer. I have struggled for along time to see myself as a writer and that God had truly chosen me to be His “scribble.” (Typos are funny and sometimes revealing as well.) And now, after the conference has ended, there is purpose and excitement filling my soul. I am courageously stepping up and out to say, “Yes Lord, send me.”
The candle wax was orange. Oh how fitting. Orange is the color associated with passion and fire. Passion and fire are what I had asked the Lord for as I went into the weekend of learning. Do I feel a little overwhelmed at the task ahead? Yes. However, God’s passion inside of me will catapult me towards my goal of writing for Him alone. The fire is what He may need to put under me at times when I get too comfortable with where I am at in the moment.
As you read this, what is your passion? Is there something you have not stepped out on? If there is, take courage and strength to follow the Lord’s leading. It may be scary at first but it will be well worth the cost in the end. Blessings for your journey, my friends.
This blog is the beginning point of what I feel God is calling me to do. My prayer is that the posts I make will touch and inspire you to continue with joy on your walk with the Lord. Life on this earth is not easy but it is manageable when we have the wisdom from above to go by.
So Lord…Thanks you for your anointing power. Without Your guidance, my words would be to no avail. Teach me how to war with my hands so that I can touch the lives you intend for me to touch. And Lord…Give me the courage and strength to see the task through. AMEN
