"If anyone would come after me. He must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me, for whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. Mathew 16:24-25

I just finished reading the book Divergent and watching a documentary at church on the life of CS Lewis (more on that in the future...maybe). My mind is ablaze in thought. Electricity pulses through my veins. I can no longer ignore this feeling inside. This urge in my soul is waiting to be fulfilled. I know now my destiny. I need to write. I was born to write. I know that now. The best way I can communicate and express emotion is through the written word. I have known this deep down but tonight was the clincher. I have often written and often become discouraged. I have left many a manuscript unfinished. I have left thoughts half-formed. I know that I need to stick with it. God gave me this gift and I need to use it for his Glory. My new goal is to better manage my time and write every day whether that be a blog post, story-writing, letter to God, poem, or other form of writing I just want to get my thoughts down. I want to become a better writer and develop my own writer’s voice. I want to someday publish a book, maybe a dozen books. Only God knows what’s in store. I just know that I need to use the gifts God has given me to bless others and manifest his glory. This gives me peace and resolution. May I carry it out henceforth!


  1. We should be pen-pals! I love writing, especially letters, I write to one of my brothers a lot and I enjoy it very much, I'm always up for another pen pal. :) I think this is awesome btw. I was thinking about writing today, I've got a friend out here who's a writer, mostly poetry--anywho it's making me want to really expand my writing abilities/desires. So I'm hoping to explore that further.
    Blessings to you as you endeavor to use you passion and gifts for the Lord! Can't wait to read the results :)

  2. Ya that sounds fun. Sorry it took me so long to reply, I haven't checked this blog in a while. I write poetry every once in a while but I don't rhyme and am not that good at it. Thank you, right back at you!
