â€śMy child, â€ś All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.â€ť Papa said.
â€śPapa, I joined a Christian writers group to grow and learn, but not all people in that group read every entry. I canâ€™t understand why it is if a novice puts their thoughts down some people just read the first paragraph and go no further. How can a novice learn if those who also write do not read and comment on what others have written? I just donâ€™t understand Papa.â€ť
â€śMy child, â€śSo do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.â€ť
â€śPapa, I know youâ€™re my strength and I can lean on You, but it sure would be nice if more people participated in feedback on what others write. Iâ€™ve read many different kinds of books in my life time, and some were excellent while others were mediocre or just plain bad. Iâ€™m not saying the authors werenâ€™t good in their genre, but some of their words kind of curled my hair. The only book I have ever read that I consider great is my Bible. Many men wrote the Bible, but the author was You. Any person that can write a book, and hold your attention all throughout the story is someone who has a beautiful gift from You. I truly consider Max LuCado a writer of the highest caliber. I love reading his books and if you are so inclined you can use his book to form a study group. In the back of his books there is a discussion guide on each chapter and guess where it takes you? The Holy Bible. Yep! The eternal Living Word of You. Now that is what I call a writer who, in my opinion, is top quality.â€ť
â€śMy child, â€śBe strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.â€ť
â€śPapa, I enjoy putting pen to paper. I write from my heart and I write because the written word is awesome. If a person is so inclined they can enroll in classes set up to help them write better. I write for enjoyment and not profit. Thatâ€™s not an endeavor I would pursue for money. Writing is an itch and putting pen to paper takes care of the itch so to speak. I am blessed to be part of a group of writers, and I can read other peoples written words. I donâ€™t judge what others write, because who am I to say who is good and who is not. In my opinion no one will ever come close to the greatest author of all and thatâ€™s You Papa. Your words are truly crafted in the finest manner possible. With You holding our hands as we put pen to paper what better way to share what You Papa have laid on our hearts than through this group of writers. I love you Papa and Iâ€™m so glad I can talk to you anytime, anyplace and anywhere, because You are just a breath away.â€ť
