Stirring to Create

For several years now, I’ve felt a tug on my heart to organize my journal entries and prayers to ultimately put these into a coherent book. I feel like my life is going in so many directions now, between my 4 and 6 year old girls, to my home bakery business, and taking care of my family, that I’m not sure how I’ll find the time. But, when I put away my writing for a while, I always feel this gentle nudge to pick it back up. How do I organize a theme for all those thoughts? Can I narrow it down to one book, or are there a few in there? As much as it pains me to admit, I’m way too easily distracted between baking and, if I’m honest, scrolling through my phone. I’m sure I could scrounge up a decent chunk of time just if I’d put my phone down and blocked off time in my calendar. I keep praying that God would use me and the gifts and abilities he’s given me for his glory, and it’s about time I do something about it. God’s stirring me up, and it’s up to me to make something tangible out of it.

  1. Keep coming back to it whenever you are stirred. Sounds like you have your hands full though. Even to put aside 10 minutes free-write every morning or evening? God is patient and there will come a time when the organising of it can be done, but meanwhile express it all on paper and sort it later.
