I Write What I Think …

When I think of family, I think of those who have been given to us by God, the Creator. Now I know that there are many who think differently, but that’s okay.  I am not an eloquent writer, nor am I a famous writer, but I am someone who loves to express myself in writing.  I think about who will respond to my articles, not anxious about the comments, but I write what I feel, and write what I think.

I use to have thoughts about being a published writer, but I realize that I am not a well-known name.  So I asked God one day, Lord, I want to write what I feel about so much that is going on in our world.  He said, write was is on your heart.  So I did……

This is what is on my heart….

  1. That people would love You as the Creator of all that You give us.
  2. That my children and grandchildren will know how much I love them.
  3. That the friends I have that You Lord have given me will be blessed.
  4. That the family I now have will include family that I have.
  5. That my daughter and son will be blessed and have a heart of Christ.
  6. That my grandchildren in this life with all the chaos will find peace and unity with all.
  7. That I become a good servant to Christ, and that those that do not believe in You will someday.
  8. That those you have blessed me within my family will know true love.

But most importantly that you bring all hearts together to live as one in kindness, compassion, and love.

That is what is on my heart.

  1. Oh my gosh Lynn, you are a great writer..because You write from the heart and with God’s blessing.

    I love this!

    Something interesting as it really resonates with me too. Every word

    I always had a secret desire to be published…..
    I wrote and put papers away… my whole life…Until last July …
    I was faced with leaving the corporate role for my own sanity and something I believed in. I stood up for my rights… then I had another talk with God… I asked him what to do… it’s like he answered in my head with questions… I wanted to write.. he basically said “it’s time to share”. I swear I wondered if I was just fulfilling my own prophesy … but I was so compelled with this voice… I began To make it short…with all I have been through… I had a chance to make it all worth while. The hearts of the world were my target…. When anyone asks… “ It is God’s breath that I breathe and his pen that I write”. This is my firm belief. Not sure where I’m heading, but I know God has this.

    Keep writing Lynn… God speaks and sometimes you just pick up the pen and out comes the beautiful words from your heart! And when God is in your heRt…well you know! 😀🙏🙏🙏

    Thank you for sharing this… hit me in the chest! Wow!

    • Paula, thank you first for taking the time to read my article. I rarely get such reply’s and with great content. I really don’t look for them either, but one thing will never change with me, is writing what I believe, with kindness, understanding, and complete honesty. I have read a few of yours, as there are so many articles that come about each day, it’s hard to keep up. I will take your advice and keep writing, and wherever my words land, on whose hearts and minds they land on, will make their lives better. May God bless and keep you.
