overcoming average(?)

because it’s something the world just needs less of

May 1, 2012 #everydaymay

with one comment

So #everydaymay once again approaches and I feel compelled to join in. I say compelled rather than excited or something similar because I’ve realized today that a compulsion (for better or worse) is something built into you. It’s not something that you could take or leave depending on how you feel about it that day. I need to write in the same way that I need to be a good husband, a good father, and even to play music. It’s not a choice, it’s fundamental to how God made me. Refusing to do those things tell God that I don’t want to be who He designed me to be.

That, for me, is the difference between sin and worship. I just never put writing with those other things before.

(special thanks to Alicia Divers, whom I’ve never met, for convicting me on what a writer is supposed to do.)

  1. Excited to see what you write this month. I feel that “compulsion” is the perfect word to describe this thing, and the way that my hands decided to write without asking my permission first.
