Recently I quoted John Boy Walton as saying, “”Writing is work! It’s as back breaking as digging a ditch. It’s as exhausting as plowing a field from sun up to sun down.” I felt this way while writing my latest article for Crosswalk. I wrote and rewrote this article so many times, I actually asked for an extension on my deadline! I repeatedly hung my head over this article, prayed for wisdom and still felt inadequate to tackle this topic.
But, what I finally realized was that I’ll never write something that applies to or agrees with every single reader. When I pray for wisdom and the Spirit gives me the words to say, I have to trust that someone will benefit from the ditch I dug and the field I plowed. Someone out there needs to read this. So, whoever you are…this is for you.
