When our son was young he was given a wonderful hand me down. Two buckets of Lego - Duplo. What enjoyment we had with him making endless configurations from the bits held within those two buckets. Naturally he has become a Lego enthusiast. He is 23 now and would be most disappointed if there wasn't some sort of Lego treat tucked into his birthday or Christmas presents.
All those little Lego blocks, little pieces when connected in a certain way can make amazing things.
It's somewhat like writing.
I enjoy being told how someone has connected with what I have written.
When I'm reading I love it when the words, story connects with my heart and my mind.
Crafting words in a way to connect with people. To make them laugh, feel inspired or lead them to a place of escape. The thrill of a writer.
A friend recommended a book to me recently. I haven't been so keen on the author but she was insistent I read the book.
So I did.
Albeit skeptically, at first.
In the end I was sobbing my heart out.
This story connected to a pocket in my heart I had kept bolted, barred and locked away with a 'no trespassing' sign hanging firmly on it.
Isn't it a joy my fellow Christian Writers Downunder?
.....used by God.
Like Lego, words when put together in a certain way can make amazing things, to touch hearts and change lives.
May our pens and keyboards flourish under the inspiration of our great God.
