Why I Write

Why I Write the Word

The word is near you – Maybe the WORD is in the fountain in the courtyard, or in the quiet of an empty sanctuary, or in the artwork by the door or a giggle from a child.

The word is in your mouth – As a writer, I talk with my keyboard or pen.  Maybe I speak out each of my characters’ lines or I write my notes on “stickies” in my Bible.  Possibly, the words are still in my mouth and I wish I had said them.

And the word is in your heart – I write because the word is in my heart.  I am passionate about what I am writing.

I write to make our joy complete.

I write to you so that you will not sin.

I write to you about old things.

I write to you about new things.

I write to all believers.

I write to parents.

I write to young adults.

I write to children.

I write to mature Christians.

I write to young Christians.

I write not because you don’t know, but because I want you to look at it with your heart.

I write to give you faithful instructions.

I write to you with the power of Jesus so that you will know you have eternal life.

I write to you about the love that brought you to Jesus.

I have much to write.

I write encouragement to the church.

I have much to write to you so we can speak face to face.

I am very eager to write and inspire you to be alive with faith.

  1. I just stumbled on your website. Thank you! I love the practical teaching and fresh perspectives. God bless you for your efforts. You’ve been helpful to many more than you will ever know 🙂

      • I don’t think we stumble upon anything by accident. Since I began searching in my faith I feel I’m always being led by the questions in my head as I’m reading about my faith either through the bible or others who have the love of God in their hearts. Thank you for your insight today. God bless your day.

      • I will encourage you to write your questions and find answers for them and write about those also. Share what you are finding.
