is it just writing…?

Is it just writing…?

Wondering what I’d been doing all day… his question came with innocence… but was met with a huge sigh…

One which bent me at the waist… face to the ground…

The question rang through my head… Is it just writing…?

I told him… No… it’s listening… it’s discerning… it’s…

The memory returned… the morning I was polishing the first lesson for the new study with sisters… I told him…

When I began this… the enemy washed over me with the words… “This is dangerous… what you’re doing with God’s Word… you should really think about stopping…”

I didn’t listen to that spirit… I continued to write… but yes… it is a work I don’t take lightly… teaching His Word…

Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.

James 3:1 ESV

The question came because I’m working on vacation… to keep up with what’s going on at home…

Expanding on his question… I tell him there is also posting and scheduling blog posts…

Considering the question again… I humbly say…

Yes… it’s just writing…

“…So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants, we have only done what was our duty.”

Luke 17:10 ESV
