Writing is something that needs a person who has a love ofr it. It can be very rewarding, but then it can be tedious, and full of days where you form a blank. That is called, “Writer’s block.”
What do you do when writer’s block comes? I step away from my computer and do something else. Most of the time I do crossword puzzles. Crosswords puzzles are my “go to thing” for many things. When I am stress out, I do them. When I am bored I do them. When I have writer block I do them.
Find your own diversion to help you clear your mind. Believe it or not, I have had some great writing ideas come from doing crossword puzzles. The answers often gave me a word I needed for some part of a chapter I was working on.
Some ask, where does it start to have a good Christian life? Is it at the church? Is it from other friends?
Actually both of those are important, but I feel it really starts right in your own home. You have the challenge of being a good example to those around you in your home. This is a 24/7 job. What you do, and others see, can have a tremendous impact of them.
I wasn’t raised in what you would call a Christian home. I am from a broken home, and my mother was the only bread winner for my brother and I for all of our childhood. She provided for us even though she only made about $1.35 an hour during our growing up years.
She didn’t go to church. That was the only day she had off from work, and she rested. I never once thought she was a bad person because of that. She was my hero; my wonder woman in my life.
I was able to attend Young Life in high school and that is where I met the LORD. I never missed a meeting, because there was many friends there. They were my example I need to be exposed to.
After I married I made sure my family went to church every Sunday, and when My children grew up and they all married Christian spouses, and have Christian children.
That is how Christianity grows and is alive. It starts in the home.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
