I was looking through some old journals and I came to a journal that was from August of last year. Near the end of the journal I wrote something that, for the first time ever I knew to put special “quotations” around it.
The Lord spoke some rather “far-fetched” things to me. It was wild. I wrote it down.
It was a first. I was surprised and shaken by it.
Shortly after this I felt led to starting an online journal. I think it was already on my heart, somehow –and the Lord spoke it boldly to me with words I would have never thought to say to myself. I think I actually probably blushed a little as I wrote them down.
The next day is when “lifeinthesecretplace.com” popped into my mind out of the blue.
It was almost 9 months ago that I said,
“…but Lord, I’m not a ‘writer’. What are You doing?”
But He led me, and I wrote.
“But Lord, every day? How am I going to do this every day?”
Then somehow writing turned into an everyday thing. Somehow there was much to “say”.
About 9 months later something new was birthed in my life.
Last week I was invited to write my first ever article for a website called ibelieve.com – it’s an online devotional site geared toward women. You can read it the article I wrote by clicking the image below…
But I’ve hesitated about sharing it on here up until now, for some reason, probably a silly reason. But you know, it’s all part of my journey. It’s something the Lord is doing in my life. It’s something I’m excited about.
This “girl who is not a writer” is doing an awfully lot of writing these days.
The truth is, I know that if the Lord leads me to it, I don’t have to question it, I just need to do it.
Because where He leads us He will provide a way. He will provide the tools.
He will teach me what I need to know.
He will provide the skill.
He will provide the words.
He will provide the voice.
What is this turning into? I don’t know.
Has there been an attempt to “abort” this whole thing? Yes.
Have I had to fight through some things to keep going? Yes.
But the Lord loves to take us on adventures. ✨
Guess I can’t say I’m “not a writer” anymore. ? ?
God, You’re so warm and funny! How You love to surprise us with goodness. ?
