is doing what you like and not caring what anybody else thinks."
-Handsome's midnight words of counsel
Who needs a psychiatrist when there's pillow talk?
Today I realized, I blog without a place for comments because it gives me "confidence".
I don't need or want recognition.
I'm not looking for praise.
I write because I love words.
I love words because
The Word wrote His image on my soul
and brought me to life with His Spirit...
living word to echo The Living Word.
I write to discover my voice, my art, myself...
who I was created to be.
I want to encourage,
to share what has inspired me; because
".... perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again."
(just as Longfellow reaches across time and encourages me).
So how do I transfer that CONFIDENCE to the rest of my life?
Lord, I am writing most purely for Your glory,
caring only what You think;
help me to live as confidently...
free of insecurity, vanity, and pride.
