My Love of Writing = God's Plan

I love to write. Whether unfinished stories, blog posts and devotions, or attempts at novels (one of which I finished in 2010 and am in the process of editing), I love to write. Although that doesn't mean I'm always in the MOOD to write, I still love it. Sometimes when I am in the moment, I think of words and sentences I can use to describe it to you later. Although this may sound funny, sometimes I kind of think in the "form" of a blog post. Like, if I'm riding on a horse, I might think, I felt the softness of the horse's mane as it galloped towards the colorful sunset. Stuff like that. I just think like that. Is it just me, or is it the mind of all writers ☺?

I think God really placed this love of writing in me. And I believe wholeheartedly that He can use anyone and anything to show others His grace, love, and glory. One time, missionaries wrote Bible verses on rubber duckies, one to each duck, and floated them down a river and into a persecuted country. How cool is that?! It is just one of MANY examples that God is a limitless God who can do anything, and that He can work through us if we trust Him.

 I think the main and most important reason God gave me my love of writing was to write for His glory. I pray that my blog posts are getting through to you all, and that they are encouraging you in faith and helping you grow in it. Girlz of God wouldn't have been possible without God - the book OR the blog. But I know He can do amazing things, even through a 13-year-old girl.

Have you ever heard of the 4/14 window? The 4/14 window is a window of age referring to children ages 4 to 14. It is said that most adults remember a time in their life, between the ages of 4 and 14, when someone told them about Jesus and it really impacted them. I hope to impact someone, too, whether 4, 14, 45, or 92. Any age. God has used young people to touch, inspire, and change my life, and I hope He uses me, too. Lots of young people today are reaching out and making a difference in the world, and I pray that you and I can be some of those people.

So, in conclusion, I hope and pray that God is using my writing for His glory. What better purpose could there be for my love of writing? In a song by Christian music artist Jonny Lang, the lyrics go like this:

"And if I can only reach one set of ears
I know that I've fulfilled my purpose here." (Jonny Lang, One Person At a Time)
If my writing only reaches out to one life, inspires one life, touches one life, or changes one life for the better, I know that I will have fulfilled God's purpose for me.

Romans 2:16
And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.

John 17:3
And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

It is totally not just you that thinks that, Talia! When I'm doing stuff, I think of sentences with vivid words where I can write it in a story or tell it to others. I love the scriptures you posted BTW:)
