Why? This is a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. Life can be a rollercoaster of emotions and the writing life is no different and like everything in life when hard moments come I ask myself Why? Why am I doing this? Why am I putting myself through the heartache and pain of rejection? Why do I keep putting myself out there when I know no one will read my stories?
You want to know what the answer is? The answer is because God gave me a talent to write stories and he gave me the desire to use those stories to share the truth of his gospel. This is my Why. This is why I keep picking myself up when the hard times come, because I don’t do it for me. I do it for Him and sometimes I think he knows I need to remember that, so he brings me back to my Why.
Life is hard my friends, but it’s so much easier when we aren’t living it for ourselves. When we give every aspect of our lives to God and we live for him, it releases so much of the worry and stress, because he knows. He knows the path you’re on. He knows where it leads and he knows when it will be time for you to switch to a new path. All we have to do is step out in faith and trust and believe in him to guide us on that path.
I know it sounds easier than it is. I know it’s easy to lose focus on this; I do it all the time, but that’s when we need to come back to our Why. Why are we on this path? Oh yeah, it’s because this is where God’s put me and he’s got this.
So how’s it going friend? How can I pray for you today?
