I wrote this article last July 3rd and thought I would re-post it for all of you ‘writers’ and ‘bloggers’ out there like me. In this last year I have found the same freedom and healing through writing – and it has caused me to pause and listen with keener perception to others on that same journey of ‘self discovery’. Something happens to us as we are real and authentic with our hearts – expressing what is within – that which is sometimes hard to find an audible voice for – the written word.
I want to challenge you today: Write those things that you cannot verbalize – those things which you are hidden deep within. Learn to be like David – finding expression in writing – and letting God speak to you while doing so. You will find a sweet release and many who share your passion. And if you need to write a letter – even if you never intend to send it – do it. It may be just for you alone. Learn to keep a journal – record what happens in your life – and be able to return to it and see how far you’ve come on your own personal journey. It will encourage you and surprise you too. You will find out – that you were never really alone – in the times that you felt no one understood. And you will discover friends along the way that are God’s ‘gift’ to you.
