“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
Writing does not come naturally to me, nor is it a passion to me as it would be to an author (although it’s becoming one). Yet I can see God’s hand and direction in what I do write. My hearts desire is to reach people, get them thinking about God, and to encourage those who already have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I am continually awed by the creativity He has given me to help plant seeds and encourage thoughts towards Jesus and the Father. It is only because of my relationship with Jesus that I have this opportunity to be creative through writing. Without God’s inspiration, I wouldn’t try to reach others through writing.
