My Job As A Writer

Blogging is difficult for me. Most of the time, I struggle for every word I write.

I have friends who enjoy blogging. And others who, while it isn’t their favorite kind of writing, have told me it flows easily.

Since it’s difficult for me, I have to remind myself why I blog. Actually, why I write or post anything.

I strive to encourage and enrich and help anyone who reads what I write or post.

I pray and work hard not to sound preachy or condemning or critical.

But I’m certain there are times I achieve what James Watkins sees as his job. Based on comments from readers and friends, some of my words comfort. And others remind folks of what they may need to work to improve.

I guess the quote that fits me best is:

As a writer, my job is to ask God for the words He wants me to write, and not grow weary in writing them.

And I must consistently thank God for those words.

I’m humbled that I’m His, and that He not only lets me serve Him by writing, but He helps me serve Him.
