Everyone has a story. For writers, we seem to have hundreds swirling around our minds. Talking to imaginary people isn’t all that crazy in the world we live in. Putting them onto paper for others to engage is what we love to do. Asking the Holy Spirit to weave himself throughout them is how they touch lives. It’s like he’s our megaphone.
See, when we write on our own strength, our stories don’t go all that far. Oh, we can get the words on the paper, but there’s no power behind them. It’s like standing on a stage and whispering…the message isn’t heard. But stand on that same stage with a megaphone, and suddenly there’s power bringing that message to even the person in the last row.
That’s what God does to our writing. He empowers it to touch every single person who comes in contact with it. For some of us, it might be as small as our circle of friends, for others their stage may reach thousands, but without his power the message is lost.
And the message is why we write.
So today as you sit at your computer, let your words flow through him, amplified by his power so that when others encounter them they hear the message loud and clear and can’t help but walk away changed.
