My attempts at vlogging were…shall we say…less than successful. I have to admit I was disappointed because I wanted to share my heart with you about my book. I know I could write it, but I want you to hear my heart, not just read it. Unfortunately, I remain technologically challenged, so I’ll have to wait on the vlog.
Instead, I’d like to encourage those of you who are toying with the idea of writing to just do it. Write whatever is on your heart. Write what you’re passionate about. Write to encourage others, to make a point, to make a difference…but write.
To be honest with you, I didn’t start writing with a book in mind. I just sensed God leading me to write and so I did. I thought it might end up being something I’d speak on at a conference or perhaps worksheets for something I would teach. But a book? Not even on my radar.
I wanted to share this with you because it’s important to do what we sense God is leading us to do even if it doesn’t make sense. Your obedience to God may take you on a journey you never expected and better than you ever dreamed. Our view is so finite; our view of ourselves is often small. But God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think.
On my own, I can accomplish nothing; through Christ, there’s nothing I can’t accomplish. The same is true for you.
So, I want to encourage you to do that which God is leading you to do today. You may be surprised how He wants to use you tomorrow…and every step of obedience is necessary to get you to that place. So, whether it’s writing or anything else…no more excuses…just do it!
What do you sense God leading you to do that you’ve been putting off?
