Why I Write

With the exception of the weekends, every morning after I eat breakfast and dress I head to my computer to write a devotion. Iíve been repeating this action for the last four years, but periodically I ask myself why.

Iíve now had four books published with my most recent scheduled to be several books with different themes. In evaluating why I write, the following verse came to mind: And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father (Colossians 3:17 NLT).

Though Iíve written sporadically since my college days, I wasnít serious about it until my fatherís death in 2009. Why this became a demarcation line Iím not sure. He wasnít a writer...except for his sermons and Bible studies. As far as I know, he didnít publish anything. His writings were shared only with the college students he taught and congregations he preached to. But for me, God wanted more.

Dad taught me to use the gifts God gave me, and writing is one. And Paul says God uses our circumstances to teach us how to help others traveling similar paths (II Corinthians 1:4). For the last 10 years, Iíve been hobbling along some rocky financial roads. Most of them because of otherís decisions that affected me, but some because of the stagnant economy. Nevertheless, God has taught me important lessons down each road, and my writing is an attempt to help others who are traveling similar trails.

Grits & Grace & God: Manna From Heaven Served Up Southern Style is a series of devotions that represent my effort to use the gift and experiences God has given me to help others along lifeís financial journey. Are you using the gifts God has entrusted to you?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, encourage us to use wisely what You entrust to our care. www.lovelinesfromgod.com
