When you feel like laying it down.
Stick a fork in me, I’m done!
And, so my Tuesday morning rolled on. Tuesday’s are writing days for me but today? I just couldn’t get passed graduation invites, photos, addresses, and pretty postage stamps! Then lunch time came and it dawned on me I did not have a writing plan.
What do you do when that happens? You text your friend and ask her to give you a random topic to write on.
How to continue in your calling when you really want to quit” Being obedient.
Okay, I can do this!
My creative mind went immediately to Moses. Poor pathetic Moses. You know what I mean – there he stood at the talking burning bush – barefooted because the bush just said to him,
Moses, remove your sandals because you are standing on holy ground.
Yes, Lord, as he hid his face. (Exodus 3.1-6)
And, THEN Moses had the audacity to argue with God.
They will not listen to me. (Moses)
Does it matter what I write? (me)
They will not believe me. (Moses)
What if people question my words? (me)
LORD, I cannot speak correctly – I stutter and make a mess of words. (Moses)
My readability and SEO aren’t good enough. (me)
Oh my LORD, please send someone else. (Moses)
Lord, not today, I’m tired and weary and… (me)
SYMPATHY ANGER OF THE LORD WAS KINDLED AGAINST HIM. (Exodus 4)
I’ll find someone else to do it.
There are plenty of writers writing phenomenal blog posts – but they don’t have the voice God gave me. They don’t have the readers I have. I must be faithful with the gifts and callings He gave me even when I don’t “feel” like it.
Obedience or Sacrifice?
Obedience trumps sacrifice. Every.Single.Time. Just do it. And, if you need a little help from a friend? Ask.
