I remember enjoying writing at school and I remember being good at it. But over the years, I neglected this gift that He had given me. Since starting to write again in 2008, my life has changed forever. I found healing through Him in my writing. I found community in Blog Land. I found a place where I could encourage others. It makes my heart sing when I get comments or emails about how my writing has encouraged others. It's now the reason I write.
Enhance' asking if they could use my post "I am Beautiful" in their magazine. And I had been asked to write an article on a new e-magazine being launched in December 2010, by the Iluvthoseshoes project called 'Indulge' (My article on 'why I blog' is to feature in Dec 2010 issue). I was so amazed at God. By being obedient to Him I had found inner healing, had been set free from depression, and now had the opportunity to encourage more people than I had ever dreamed possible through my writing.
To fathom just how amazing this really is, you need to know that 2 years ago I had been suffering depression for 3 years. I could have never imagined that in 2 years time at that point in my life, that I could manage my own family, let alone be published in 2 magazines. That's our God. He is in the restoration business. He rebuilt me (and continues to do so) so that I can help others. He always has others in mind when He does a work in your life.
If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." Martin Luther King JrWhen I first started writing, all I could do was crawl. Each day was a struggle. But I obeyed His whisper to me to write. Then I started to walk as I found healing through Him as I wrote. Next I was able to run, as I connected with others in Blog Land, and He continued to rebuild me. Now I soar on His wings. I fly, filling my blog with words of hope of the One who loves us more than anything and wants us whole - Jesus.
Still taking lessons from the King,
