Write It Down



















"This is what the Lord, the GOD of Israel, says: Write down for the record everything I have said to you, Jeremiah." Jeremiah 30:2

Has God ever asked you to "write something down?" When we write, our words have lasting value. Many times we give up, too soon. We want to skip or not think about the pain. For me, hope and victory come through "writing it down!" However, over the years "the written words" have been safely tucked away in journals and notebooks for no one else to see.

When God said, "write it down" a couple of years ago I replied, "I already did that!"

He said, "Write it down, again and this time share them with the world!"

I have not been faithful to the task. Yes, I have been "writing it down," but not continually. This past week a fellow christian posted a facebook status reigning down conviction on my heart. I began again. Thankfully, our GOD does "not" give up on us. He lets us begin anew when we fall or stumble.

Now, to begin again allowing God guide the words through my pen. The timing and completion are in His hands. Please join me in prayer as I seek to be faithful to His call.

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea Bowling Perdue

It's good that He doesn't give up on us.

I can be such a hard head about that. One morning, I heard God's voice also telling me to "write it down" and I ignored it for a moment and then another. Finally, I turned on the light and got out the pen and paper. Words flowed through my fingers. I promised God that I would do my very best to listen to his voice the first time around.

I have never heard Him tell me to write it down...but He has me draw my words. I am looking forward to what you write down as God directs you...I am believing it will be wonderful.

It's been a long time since I have popped in and I'm sorry...I too am so glad that God doesn't give up on us and allows us to begin once again. Thanks for sharing your heart.

Hey Andrea! I, too, have been hearing the Lord prompting me to "write it". Joining with you in prayer and trusting Him to complete the good work He's begun in us as we do our part.

He is Faithful!!

Hugs!

Hey Andrea, Thanks for sharing what's on your heart. This made me think back over several journal entries where I felt Him telling me to write it down. Sometimes I think when He tells us this we need to take the initiative to share it, which I am guilty of not doing. I pray that you will feel that need to share your writings, we never know who we might reach or bless, and I need to do the same!
until next time... nel

That's what we should do, when we write something, it's something that we shouldn't keep for ourselves. Write and share!
