Different Me – Different You
(reblog from 12/2011)
Isaiah 43:16, 18-19(NKJV): Thus says the LORD, who makes a way in the sea And a path through the mighty waters, do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Guess what all you bloggers and writers? We are exhorters! We urge, press on, encourage, spur and prod. We appeal, encourage and call out to others.
I write differently than you. You may consider your writing your ministry where I could consider my writing a leap of faith. Someone else may consider their writings as teaching others while I may consider my writing as a culmination of my experiences. But we are all unique in our exhortation.
By stepping out, by taking your leap of faith and writing on the world-wide web, you have begun a new “thing”. Don’t look back at the former. Spring forth this coming year. The Lord will continue His work in your life and your writings.
You are writing a journal for the entire world to see. Yes, it is a responsibility! God is using you as His instrument and guiding you down the path He has chosen for you to follow. Press On! Prod On! Slog through your blank spots. Listen, read and continue to learn. Jesus, is teaching you and He will continue His good works.
Be diligent and write with cheerfulness. If you can’t find yourself this year, take a break and look in the Word for your proportion of faith. Go out, write on and He will lead you down the road in the wilderness. Jesus promises you will find your river in the desert.
Romans 12: 6-8 (NKJV): Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness
