"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10
That doesn't necessarily mean I was born to be a famous, well known author (but it could!), what it means is that I was created to speak and write the words God has placed on my heart, for His purpose and His plan. Whether that's on my blog, in a published novel, or simply on the pages of my children's journals, I'm called to use words to express who God is and who He created me to be. The full expression of His creation.
As I've stepped out and started writing more publicly, I've had this overwhelming sense of fulfillment. I feel that my words are an offering of worship to my Lord; the kind of worship that I was created to offer. I believe He's pleased with what I'm doing, and I'm basking in His pleasure. It's one of the most amazing experiences of my life, next to marrying my husband and giving birth to my children. There's nothing better in this life than to do the work God has called you to do.
In church today we sang this song and tears came to my eyes. It expresses my heart exactly.
I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice
To worship you, Oh my soul rejoice!
Take joy, my King, in what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear
May my voice, and the words I write, be a sweet, sweet sound in His ear.
What about you? What dream is on your heart? What do you do that is an act of worship to the Lord? Do you feel His pleasure?
