If I never have the opportunity to write again, I would probably go insane.
Writing is my means to everything. It is my freedom in a sometimes not so free world. It is my release when my mind is on overload. It is my expression when I need to express. It is my “common sense” when my spoken words and ideas do not make sense; and as cliché as this next sentence is; Writing is my antidote when I’m debilitated by the struggles of life.
Most of the time, writing keeps me out of trouble….and it allows me to be silent (verbally) on matters while I write, express, analyze and put things in perspective.
There have been several joyous things that have occurred in my life. Not suprisingly, there have also been some grave things that have occurred in my life; but through it all, I would always feel better after putting my thoughts on paper . . . well better yet on some electronic device (It’s 2016 for heaven’s sake LOL). So I would lovingly encourage you to do the same for no one but YOU.
Everything that occurs to you is not meant for you to share with everyone. Sharing, your thoughts, your experiences, your hurts and pains, your joys and happiness, etc. etc. & etc. gives people access to some parts of you that you very well may not have been ready to share: the parts that may leave you feeling uncovered and vulnerable; and that is okay as long as you share with someone you are fully comfortable being vulnerable around ( for many different reasons that I won’t list right now . . . (subscribe to my blog if you really want to know <—— Yes that was a cheesy plug ).
I’m back in my pensive mood . . . . FEEL FREE TO CONTINUE READING BELOW. 🙂
This could also be applied to writing if you are writing and putting your expressions (feelings, thoughts, ideas) in someone else’s hand, but I am referring and I am encouraging you to write . . . for no one but YOU and GOD.
(CLARIFICATION) —> Sharing in any form to others is needed and not a bad thing . . . but this post is about writing for YOU and God. (CLARIFICATION ENDED)
Sometimes we have to learn to be silent to others BUT vocal to the one who created and understands US . . . and this my friend is not always easy to do. Restraining our mouths at times can be a wise, humble and a noble thing to do. (Read Psalms 17:28, Proverbs 10:19 & Psalms 4:4) Sometimes when we talk too much, express to0 much, speak out of emotion too much we do damage, the type that can be detrimental to ourselves.
When you write just to express your own thoughts and feelings, there is a much needed silent release that occurs. When you write just to express your own experiences you get to put things in perspective for you; you ponder and reflect. When you write to express whatever needs to be expressed, you give God “1st access” to you and whatever you express. This access that you give to God is a loud statement to him that you trust him with ALL of you. This access that you give to God lets him know that you do acknowledge him and you are including him in your life. (Read Proverbs 3:6a)
SO . . . .with love and of course with #JOY, I challenge you to write today.
Express. Pour out. Release . . . and then be silent and wait for God to move, speak and work things out for you.
Today . . . . with love and with #Joy, I challenge you to “BE STILL” and know that “HE ABOVE” is God and will supply all of your needs. (Read Psalms 46:10 & Philippians 4:19)
Write for your freeness. Write for YOU. Write to Him!
Signed with JOY,
JOYFULLY CHRISSY LEE
