Some days I wake up already talking in my sleep. I have so much stuff that just needs to be heard, that needs to be shared, I follow my family around the house unloading these great nuggets.
Some days they politely nod with a plastic smile on their face which screams
"what in the world is she talking about!"
Other days I will connect with my husband or one of my babies with a truth that is stirring in both of us. This for me, is my 'hallmark' moment, is right up there with summer days and chocolate. The connection of two hearts wallowing in a truth straight from the truth maker Himself.
My pulse quickens, my heart expands and my tongue trips over itself while messing with new vocabulary to find adequate expression.
And when it's all said, there is that afterglow of satisfaction; of knowing, and of been known. If I smoked, I would almost be tempted to light a cigarette although not sure if I even what to use this metaphor, I will back out of this corner before I get myself into trouble.
The more I hang around the blogasphere though, the more I am discovering this exchange of hearts happening through writing.
Today a lady sitting in the dark, literally, on the other side of the world has no idea that something she wrote has had a profound effect on me. Her writing has altered my foundational thinking therefor the entire outcome of my future.
If you are reading this, odds are you blog. So have it known that you are in a position of great influence, of leadership and in that of shaping lives. You life and words make a difference. Your journey and reflection are scaffold for others walking along side you now and in the future. This is true of where ever words can be shared.
We have the amazing privilege to reveal to others what God thinks about them so they can feel His love; tell them how their existence has benefited you so they can see their purpose; tell them when you really enjoy them and wallow in their 'made in His image' self so they can see that they're accepted.
There is a buzz in watching hits and followers, but what would majorly blow me away is to be able to see somehow the fruit our writing has had, especially writing chocked with meaty bits of His truth showcased by those who have journeyed the storm and come out the other end still flat out crazy with their God.
This kind of writing impacts the direction of lives, it's pivotal in destiny and legacy and reveals how much God adores His creation and desires to restore relationship and intimacy with a world who craves nothing but.
All that in a blog.
