Hope*Writers IG Spring Writing Challenge (Day 2) – PATH

Tuesday’s questions for thought were:

  • What path do you find yourself on in this season of life?
  • Is your current path clear or complicated? Why?
  • Where do you currently need direction in your writing life or otherwise?

God has blessed me with a ministry of encouragement whereby He brings people and situations to me to pray for and send notes of encouragement, congratulations, or healing.

Sometimes the words come easy. However, at other times I’m at a loss for how to approach a particular situation. The path isn’t straight or smooth by any stretch of the imagination, therefore I have to lean on Jesus for the timing of and words that I share with those that He has asked me to offer encouragement to.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight – Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV




  1. This season of my life is consumed with thoughts of scripture, and the way it aligns with itself. I can’t help but to share what I have seen and though it’s not final by any degree, I find that the Word of God is ever revealing, mysteries opening up like I’ve never seen before.

    I’m a layman, which is to say I have no formal training, or education. I like to think that I’m in the company of Peter and John (Acts 4:13).

    My path at this time is the blog that I write, in which the greater portion are series.
    In some ways it is complicated, I find myself very drawn to the revelations, that I’m drawn in with little time for my family.

    I know that they believe, and they encourage me to seek God, but I have to learn how to find a time for everything.

    As a writer, I find myself resisting the rabbit holes, or I can get caught up going in different directions, that said I have spent a lifetime trying to discern the direction He has for me in the Word, because context is everything.

    I guess, like Paul, we should be…

    “…Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
    And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel…”
    Ephesians 6:18-19

    Thank you for the opportunity.
    God bless you
