I knew for a long time that I was meant to speak and write, but I sat.
For what, I don’t know.
It was a long time, years even, that I did nothing about what I felt I should be doing. As I continued sitting on it, I took a group of ladies from our church to a Women of Faith Conference and that’s when things changed.
God got my attention.
I had to tell somebody about this undefined desire, whatever it was.
Fact: No one is touched when creative dreamers dream, then wait for God to make the dream happen (read “do nothing”) .
Closet creatives, like I was, won’t even tell their spouse or closest friends, much less talk with God about it. They have the wish to create something of value, but just wait, as if one day,
they’ll have finished their creative bucket list.
Creative dreams need a voice and a plan to become a reality.
My next step to fulfill the dream of speaking and writing was to try to put it into words.
Afterward, I had to tell my best friend Lou in the stadium seat next to me. Then I had to call my husband as soon as I could.
By telling these important people in my life,
put words to and
gave voice to this vision and inner calling.
What about you? Is there something niggling at you? Something you need to create? Something you need to put words to and tell somebody?
