Wake up Call

I just returned from Mount Hermon Writers’ Conference energized after a hard re-set with my writing. It was a wake up call to re-engage my heart.

It was a chance to accept God’s invitation to dig deep and reignite my passion for writing words that paint a portrait of our great God.

During  the conference, God provided a chance for me to look into His face and find the deeper, truer meaning for my life.

[Tweet “God provides opportunities to look into His face and find the deeper, truer meaning for our life.”]

While At Mount Hermon, I wrote an article in my Major Morning Track workshop–even as I lay splayed on God’s operating table, monitors beeping as He leaned over me with needle and sutures… The article is what you’d expect in such a case; raw and tender to the touch. Still healing. But (unbelievably to me) it won a contest at Mount Hermon and is published on their blog.

It’s gut writing, deep and personal. But God compelled me to shape it for the consumption of others while leaving an uncomfortable amount of personal material–to show that I’m not Wonder Woman at all. And He compels me now to use it to show how our struggles can lead us to dig deep and reignite our passion for His call. [Tweet “God uses struggle to lead us to dig deep and to reignite our passion for His call.”]

I pray God uses this humbling article to lead you into your own “break through” in an area of longtime struggle.

Here’s the link to the article on Mount Hermon’s website:
