A New Beginning

I’m reading this great book about finding my identity in Christ, and it has really changed some negative mindsets for me. If you get a chance to read it, it’s called “Living Fearless” by Jamie Winship. In the book, he prompts people to pray and ask the Lord to reveal lies we believe about ourselves and exchange it for any truths he wants us to know; what He says about us.

One lie I’ve been believing for months is that I am not a good writer and have constant writer’s block. Because we’re going through so much negatively, I have nothing positive to write about, so I write nothing. I thought all of that was true. But the Lord asked me to stop believing that and instead, believe what he says, which is that I am a good writer.

“Oh yeah, Lord,” I said, “how do you figure I’m a good writer? I don’t think I’m good at all.”

“Because a good writer is an obedient writer. And that is what you are.”

“Again, Lord, how do you figure? I’ve been fighting it for years!”

“Well then I guess there’s no better time to start then now.”

So I guess that’s what I will do. Write. About what? I don’t know. But hopefully I can put something on paper or on here every day. Especially something positive. Maybe some life lessons or different things God showed me that day.

Whatever it is, I know I need a new mindset and new beginning about writing. There are so many things I could write about because there are so many events that seem to happen in my life. Never a dull moment.

I don’t know how all of this is going to pay the bills, but I’ll keep you posted. lol
