Writing.

It’s been part of my life for many years.

A joy, an outlet, a means of expressing my heart.

Although I never considered myself a writer

    I did enjoy writing in my journal or even on scraps of paper.

Bit by bit I began to learn how to frame what I wanted to say.

The rest began to fall into place.

The Peril Of Having Sight But No Vision

Move forward. Yes, keep moving forward.

That’s where the joy is. That’s where the adventure lies.

Keep moving forward.

But in order to do that

you must have a vision.

Without vision people perish. (Proverbs 29:8)

Without vision we stagnate

continuing to do what we are comfortable doing.

Staying in our nice safe box. Doing what we know best.

But life is about moving forward,

stretching and growing

seeking, reaching, sometimes leaping.

So how do you get a vision?

Ask yourself “If you could do anything what would you be doing?”

“If you could meet anyone

who would you want to meet?”

Or “If you could go anywhere, where you would go?”

Or “If you could write anything knowing it would sell, what would you write?”

Those questions and more will begin to give you an idea of your heart’s true purpose

and a vision.

Spend time in prayer seeking His Will for your life.

Work with a coach who is equipped to lead you in your discovery.

Read books of others who are doing what you’d like to be doing.

Keep moving forward

to the Light of His Purpose.

Life is lived forward

not backward.

Yesterday is gone. What we hold in our hands is the gift of today.

Think vision, dream big and listen to those gentle whispers.

“The most pathetic person in the world is some one who has sight but no vision.”
― Helen Keller

Now is the time to set your sails and let Him lead you.

You have no idea what you could possibly accomplish in your lifetime

but He does.

Keep moving forward today.

 

 

 

 

If You Never Try, You’ll Never Know~

I stared at the blank piece of paper

wondering where to begin. This was many years ago.

Deep within my heart there was a story that needed to be written;

an article that asked to be created

but

the very thought

of writing an entire article intimidated me.

You see, I had never written anything before

and I was scared.

Scared of what?

Failing, perhaps.

Doing a mediocre job.

Who knows, but I remember feeling paralzyed.

Then those powerful words came to my mind

and sank deep within my spirit.

If you try, you might fail.

But if you never try, you’ll never know.

So with that in mind I began to write –

I knew that I might fail

But if I didn’t even try I’d never know.

I wrote it in one sitting, slipped it in an envelope

along with a return stamped envelope

and mailed it out.

Done!

Satisfaction!

Peace! Gave it my best !

God must have known what my tentative spirit needed.

In days I received an acceptance letter.

Shining moments all around

The check that I got a few days later was only the icing on the cake.

I was a writer.

I was in His service.

Whether I never had anything else to be accepted for publication

I knew that I had tried and succeeded.

What about you?

If you don’t try, you’ll never know.

If you do try, you might fail.

But isn’t failure more about never trying than achieving a certain standard of perfection.

I never knew that I could ride a horse

until I tried. And then I worked very hard to learn more skills.

If you try, you might fail.

Mail out the manuscript. Click off that story. Write the poem. Create the song.

You never know.

You never know what you are capable of doing

Until you try. You never know what God will do through you until you try.

So let’s try, dear friends.

The time is now.

I’m trying – Will you?
