What does it mean to Rise Up with your words?
I’m in a group called Rise Up Writers that is ran by www.JoleneUnderwood.com
Jolene has put up a link-up and asked us the question…What does it mean to Rise Up with your words?
The first thing that comes to mind is that I have always wanted to be a writer; ever since I was a little girl. I always had pen pals and wrote letters back and forth with my cousins who lived in another state. I wrote in my diaries like crazy and just knew that one day I would be a famous writer. Well a couple of years ago I wrote a poem. I read it to my best friend and she said that it was really good. So began my journey into the poetry world. I now have two poetry books published.
Poetry is great and I really do enjoy it, however, I don’t feel complete with just the poetry. My desire is to write for Christ…after all, I am who I am because of Him. I want to give God all the glory that He deserves and one of the ways I can do that is with my writing.
So to answer this question about Rising Up with my words, I would have to say that using my words to bring glory to God is the best use of my words. I can give Him the glory in my writing as I focus more on these types of posts. One thing that’s been on my mind is writing a devotional using poetry and scripture, but I haven’t got very far on that yet.
I feel truly blessed to be in this group among other writers who are trying to make their voices heard just like me. I praise God for blessing me with the passion for writing and all I can do is my best for Him.
