I Didn't Know I Was A Writer (a five minute friday)
My Five Minute Friday on: Write
I have always liked writing — organizing thoughts and expressing them on the page.
But I never dreamed I'd become a blogger.
I started this endeavor after years of writing silence, when life was hard and confusing and words would have torn me apart.
There were babies and exhaustion pulling on me until I had little left.
Then words began seeping their way, passed the tired and used up. Words that spoke of Love and Truth and relationship. And I felt myself open up to them, like a bud to the coaxing warmth of the sun.
It was in this space that I found writing again. Felt the power of words and how writing them down cleansed and freed.
I didn't know I was a writer then.
But the more I wrote, the more confident I became. The more risky and open and vulnerable I was willing to be.
And if felt good to be honest.
I don't regret the voice I have found here, writing for me, for you, for Him.
Or the cathartic act that helps me process and connect with others who read my words and feel encouraged or understood or less alone in the struggle.
I have always liked writing, but I never knew how much I needed it.
