It might seems like I’ve been hiding out, but I haven’t been.
I’ve been writing.
I’ve been writing a lot.
And by writing a lot, I mean that in the course of a month or so, I have written…
Three poems (subbing one today)
Two new pictures books (both in revision stage now)
A rebus (for magazine) – subbing today
A puzzle (for magazine) – subbing today
A new chapter book (now in revision stage)
I don’t think I’ve written that much in such a short amount of time since my college exams!
And you know what? I know it is an answer to prayer. I needed to be stretched… and He’s doing that.
I believe that God cares about all aspects of our growth – physical, spiritual, emotional… AND the growth of the creative spirit HE has placed in us.
So… are you using the creative spirit He’s put in you? Have you asked him to stretch you? Or are you hiding behind other things? Don’t be afraid to move. Don’t be afraid to step out and do something different. Don’t be afraid to shine.
It’s what He created you for!14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
