If you’re a long time subscriber of one of my blogs you’ll remember that I’ve talked before about how the words just flow from me. When I’m done I have a great message that has meaning, symbolism, and it flows well with good format. Often, these messages come when I haven’t even been thinking about the subject at hand. Where does all this come from if not from God?
The same was true for my book, Cocoa with Jesus. I wrote about my life and educated the readers about the issues at hand without a second thought. There was so many memories that I had forgotten or blocked out of my mind and yet they all ended up in words on my computer screen in front of me. I wrote and included chapters that I didn’t even plan on writing. Other chapters that I wanted to include got cut from the final draft.
Sometimes, when I don’t know what to write about, God will say to me “Just start writing.”
I’ve even said to Him “Write what? I have no words in my mind to type.”
Again, He’ll say to me “just start writing.” So I do.
Suddenly I’m typing words that were certainly not in my mind at that moment. God uses me to send a message to others. I’m honored, happy, excited, and very blessed that He chose me to be the vessel to which these particular messages get to those who need to hear or read them.
Today’s devotional as I write it right now is a case in point. I woke up feeling groggy after a long night of weird dreams. Yet before I could even get dressed or eat breakfast, I found myself sitting at my laptop typing out these words. Where else could it come from but from God?
