I heard Christian singer/songwriter Mark Schultz say recently about a particular song he wrote, “Next to the song title it states that it is written by me, but I didn’t write it the words-God did, I just happened to be in the room at the time.”
That’s exactly how I feel about almost every word I’ve written. I don’t have a background or education in journalism or writing, and prior to 6 years ago, I had never had the desire to write at all.
Until one day He gave me the idea. Almost instantly, I had the desire and confidence to start writing. Thanks to the experiences with my Olivia, I had words burning inside me that I felt other special parents needed to know.
A “wow” moment like that can only come from God. He not only placed the desire in my heart, He gave me the words He knows people need to hear---and He continues to give them to me month after month, week after week….
Now I’m sure some of you are thinking, “God could never use me, I don’t have anything to offer…He would never speak to me like that.”
Has God been telling you to do something you don’t feel qualified to do?
What is it that you started to do that you know could have only come from His strength and His love, and His guidance? Have you had “ideas” come to you that make no sense to your natural mind?
If He gave you the calling, He will see you through.
He will give you what you need—strength, courage, endurance, peace.
He did it for Gideon.
He did it for me.
He will do it for you.
