Hieroglyphs, parchments, newspapers, books, dictionaries, ebooks, emails, blogs, websites, letters, and SMSs. Hasn't everything that's being written, already been written before? Apart from new discoveries, everyday happenings and updated technology, that is. Yet, whether in the form of facts, ideas, or opinions, countless words continue to encircle our globe.
My only justification for adding to this plethora of words is this: it's my slant on things as an author. A viewpoint peculiar to me. (And yes, it could be very peculiar!)
Even if you're not interested in writing novels, I still say get your thoughts down. A really helpful way to figure out difficult decisions is to begin writing PROs and CONs on a sheet of paper. Write out all your past history. Your own grandchildren will love discovering things about your childhood some day. And if you're a believer, write Prayer Requests on one side and Answered Prayer on the other. This is for the long haul as the Lord's answers come about in His time, not ours.
A good thought to grasp is this:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us." (Gospel of John CH 1:1-2, 14)
So much is revealed to us in His Word. Our origins, our purpose, our behaviour, and our ultimate destination. And at the end of all things, Jesus will the only one to have the Last Word. Will it be "Well done!" or "Depart from me, I never knew you."
What are your thoughts on this?
