For me, this blog journey formally started about 10 months ago, however, I think it really started 18 years ago before there was ever a such thing as blogging.
I've always enjoyed writing. Matter of fact, I should dig up some of my very first poems and stories for you guys. From the time I was 11 years old, I said that I would be a writer. Somehow I got older and decided that I couldn't make money as a writer or that the field was too hard to break into and be successful, so I went a different route, only to find myself back where I started. I chose a path that made more sense to me and everyone around me. Seriously! Who writes for a living?
I get an unbelievable amount of joy out of reading the different things TrentMan writes. He started writing way earlier than I ever did, and it started out with little love notes and now has progressed into full blown super hero stories. His mind is so fresh, new, and creative. His unspoiled talent really gives me motivation to really pursue my dreams.
So, back to my original question...Why blog? For me, this blog is a direct intersection of my natural talent and passion for writing and my supernatural spiritual gifts of exhortation, faith, and intercession (I Corinthians 12:7-11). For whatever reason, God wired me to enjoy writing PERIOD When I accepted Him as my Saviour and His Holy Spirit came to live inside of me, He began to give me spiritual gifts that He is working through me to produce. So, when I go to pray with/for someone, or I give an encouraging word, or believe like you've never seen anyone believe....it is not me that you see, but Him working through me.
Why do you blog or what led you to follow your current path?
