I have taken much of 2020 off from writing to simply examine my motives, where is my heart in all of this writing and how does it reflect on me and my relationship with the Lord.
I would like to take this opportunity to catch up shortly here, with you.
In 2019 I felt the Lord leading me to write a blog, which I have enjoyed tremendously! Simultaneously I felt the Lord daily giving me a note and a reading to be a daily inspirational for 2020, which I kept and have been publishing on facebook as and where applicable. As for my blog in 2020, I really took the time to do soul-searching to ensure that my motives for this blog experience were not my selfish intention of getting my “name out there” and being noticed in some way, but for the sole purpose of writing what the Lord has given me to share, with truth and in love! So, I asked the Lord for the purpose and direction for my writing and He, as always, faithfully came back to me with scripture:
Reason for my writing:
Is 45:22 “Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
23 By myself I have sworn;
from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
a word that shall not return:
‘To me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear allegiance.’
I am to write to the glory of His Holy Name and for no other purpose.
How to write:
Is 40:1“Comfort, comfort My people,”
says your God.
2“Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and proclaim to her
that her forced labour has been completed;
her iniquity has been pardoned.
For she has received from the hand of the LORD
double for all her sins.”
3A voice of one calling:
“Prepare the way for the LORD in the wilderness;
make a straight highway for our God in the desert.
4Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill made low;
the uneven ground will become smooth,
and the rugged land a plain.
5And the glory of the LORD will be revealed,
and all humanity together will see it.
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
My writing is to comfort the people of the Lord and keep us focused on Him as our spiritual Father in heaven who always provides and intercedes for us on this planet!
