Why do you write?
If someone had asked me that question five years ago I’m not sure how I would have answered. But today…
[Tweet “Today I write because I have to. God’s love compels me. It’s what I do.”]
Tells about a gracious God who allowed me to come face to face with the things I feared most to prove that He is greater than my fear. It’s a story of the way my faith grew as it intersected with the hard parts of life. And of the ways I learned that God’s grace, mercy, and love was and is sufficient for every situation.
I didn’t always know that. I could put a doubt at the end of every statement of faith. Because I was trying “to be good” always wondering, no—always knowing that my good wasn’t good enough.
You may have heard teachers talk about living “under the protection of God’s umbrella.” That was me. Trying to be good enough to stay under His umbrella. While constantly worrying and wondering if it was even possible.
That’s why I write. Because I now know that I’m not good enough but God’s loving grace is more than enough. When I end up out in the storm He will give me strength. Sure I’ll go through all the normal emotions when hard life happens, but I won’t wonder if God can give me all I need. I know He can and He will. That’s my story.
What’s your story?

Why do you write?
Those thoughts about my writing came from just the first lesson of Arabah Joy’s – Christian Blogger Bootcamp.
My friends were so enthusiastic about CBB I decided I had to sign up.
I’ve attended other bootcamps and blogger training sessions, but I never felt like they spoke to me. They could give techniques and disciplines, but they didn’t speak to my heart as a faith writer. This is a course that is not only teaching me what I need to know about blogging, but it’s doing it from a Biblical perspective. Yay!
