Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker gives a word prompt for writers to write without abandon for 5 minutes. Sometimes the rules are broken, but the words bloggers write are great. Today, the word is….


I can’t believe that I have a blog~~ a place to write. I am not good with words. I don’t write stories. English and Literature were my least favorite subjects. I don’t write poetry. Honestly, poetry usually bores me.

I question a lot if I should write. Do people really honestly care what I have to say? Does God want to use me in this way? He is using others. He has gifted people with words that they can use to reach the masses with their stories. I don’t feel needed.

Sometimes writing is therapeutic for me. I never was one to keep a journal. I would try, but give up. Now, however, sometimes, I have to write out my prayers. Sometimes, speaking isn’t enough. It is also nice to see where I have come from~~ where He has brought me.

I remember my first post. I didn’t blog then. A blogger was gracious enough to use my story. Some people understood. A lot of people criticized.

I write because I hope that someone will visit my corner of the world and be encouraged. I write to get advice. I pray I make a difference.

Be blessed:)

  1. You write because it is the right thing to do right now…I’m so glad you are!

    It is certainly therapy – and figuring out life.
    And by putting it here, well others get to walk with you!

    Blessings friend!
