Weekly, sometimes daily, I wonder why I spend my time writing anything beyond grocery lists.
Once, when I was on my way to a blogging conference I was seated by the nicest lady. She didn’t know what blogging was. I told her how it works—that I write posts, make graphics, post to social media, read and learn about blogging, go to conferences, and stuff like that. She said, “That sounds like a great job! How much do you make?” <<Crickets>>
LOL! Um, no ma’am. This is pretty much the most expensive hobby I’ve ever had.
Last year, around this time, I was praying about my writing…the same-old-should-I-write-at-all, and what to write, plus how to find people who might want to read it (LOL)…typical blogger angst. And these prayers I had prayed so many times before, and all those times before, the Lord had reassured me.
So many times before the Lord has kept me going by sending a kind comment or a writing breakthrough. You know…He really does care about the little things we do.
But this time it was different.
I realized that it was time to do something different.
I had been trying to write something worth reading.
Instead I should have been living a life worth writing about.
This knowledge clunked me on the head like a ton of bricks.
I’ve had life. But not life in abundance.
Is your life “to the full”? Does it “overflow”? What does it mean to have a more abundant life? All month we are exploring what an abundant life might look like. This is going to be good! Thanks for joining me!!
