Writing is, without a doubt, not just a hobby, but a purpose to me. I believe with all my heart it’s how God meant for me to minister. I should never be confused, then, when God’s answer to some of my questions is always, “Keep writing.” Sometimes my question will have nothing to do with writing, and I get frustrated. But overtime I’ve discovered another reason and another reason of why it’s often the perfect answer:
- I feel closest to him when I write. Writing is another way of worship for me.
- It’s a healthy escape from the world and my troubles. God knows that sometimes the answer is I need to give it to him and get away, and I can do that through writing.
- It’s my destiny to be a writer, and so what better way to progress than to write? God’s a practical God, and he knows that the best way for me to get closer to my destiny is to develop my skills!
- It’s often an answer to, “What do I do, God?” In the moment, writing does not look like it’s going to solve the problem, but according to the reasons above, it actually is!
- That’s all I have to worry about doing; he’s got the rest. When God says, “Just write,” he’s telling me, “You just go do that. I’ll take care of everything else.” When I realize that I all need to do is put words to paper, everything makes sense.
Is there a common answer God keeps giving you, an answer that doesn’t seem like the right one? What about this answer have you discovered? How is it actually the right answer that you need to hear?
