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.
