“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:

it shall not return unto me void,

but it shall accomplish that which I please,

and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”

Isaiah 55:11

Good morning my fellow bloggers!

Sssshhhhhh, do not tell anyone, but today, this blog is just for you. ( We will be nice though, and share it with everyone else.)

Do you ever get tired?

Do you ever run out of things to say?

Do you sit down to write and all you hear are the chirping crickets?

Surely I am not the only one who has ever had this happen.

Today I want to take a minute and encourage those who spend their time encouraging others.

First, let me just say, “Great job!” I sit down from time to time and look through some of the blogs that you have posted and I am amazed at the work that I see God doing. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a great group of fellow believers.

Next, I just wanted to take a quick minute and offer some encouragement to you, the writer of this great material. I know how hard it can be when life gets crazy, or when unexpected things happen, to find the inspiration to write. We have to remember that we are not in this alone. If you are a Christian and you feel that you have been called by God to share His word, then you have His blessing. God will give you the words to say, even when you feel like you have nothing left to give.

Remember, you have no idea who will read what you post from day to day, and you have no idea how God will take that and use it for His honor and glory. There will be people who read what God gives to you, and will say to themselves, “That was just for me.” God is amazing in that way.

I pray that we will all remain faithful to our callings. I pray that we remember why we started writing in the first place, whether it be to inform,  to encourage, or to inspire.

In closing, let me just say kudos to each and every one of you who work every day to share the word of God with the world around us. I look forward to what the future holds for each of us, and I look forward to sharing many more memories with you in the future.

God bless each and every one of you this morning.

In Christ,

Valarie
