“He dictated all these words to me, while I wrote them with ink on the scroll.”
My writers heart explodes when God talks about writing on tablets, writing in scrolls, writing His words down to remember and to tell and show future generations.
I just revel in those verses and moments documented in Scripture.
As a writer, I know my God given gift is to share His word and His stories. I know how much passing down the stories of His goodness, His justice, His mercy and grace is important to Him.
I don’t take that lightly. And even though I have yet to write my book, I write everyday. Whether it’s writing out what I learned that day about God in my Living Brave Facebook group, writing for my blog, or a simple Instagram post, I write and I speak of Him to those that will listen or read.
We see our gifts as one sided sometimes, and we don’t give ourselves enough credit. But once we stop to see the bigger picture, we can see God’s grace and His workings in the little things we do.
I share because I feel inclined to.
I share my daily revelations of God to others because I have this urgency to.
It’s not for me, but for Him.
Being part of a Bible study group online or reading a blog isn’t “life changing” but it’s those little stones, the tiny seeds, the words written down to read that make a bigger impact more than we could ever think or imagine.
I have no idea who reads my writings.
I have no idea how it impacts them or what "God nuggets" they take away.
I was just told by God to write and share, so I do.
Here I am, writing on my scroll with ink. Or typing with my thumb on my iPhone. The dictations God gives me, in hopes that His words penetrate your heart and give you the encouragement, the courage, and the inspiration you may need. That these words point to Him and no one else.
Scrolls, ink, words aren’t much alone.
But put together, they are powerful.
Imagine what you could do if you picked up the pen God is handing you? Whether it’s truly a pen, or a ministry, a new business plan, or a new position at work. He is handing you something, and it’s worth sharing the gift with those around you. Correction: He already HAS handed you something. You must find out what that gift is and run with it.
You may never know the impact your gift has, but that’s not the point of the gift.
The gift is just that, to give it away, and God will do the rest.
God gave us the ultimate gift, and we must follow His example and give our gift away too. Your gift is exactly what someone else needs.
