I have down on my blogging schedule that I share inspirational articles on Thursdays. But it’s occurred to me that the Lord is part of my life every day. And I often include Him in my routine posts whether the article is labeled “inspiration” or not.
The fact is, if He is part of my daily life, my writing circumstances, my family, and my stories, so I don’t need to set aside a day to separate Him from the rest.
I mentioned yesterday why I write Christian Fiction. You can see the article HERE. For the same reason that I write what I do, I also avoid preaching through my books.
There might be an aha here or there as the pieces fall into place for my characters – not unlike the clues of a mystery. But I don’t have a preacher or anyone else offering a sermonette during my stories.
My goal is to have the Lord present in the lives of my Christian characters. They fail and flounder, even forget their faith, but they recognize the way He works and are strengthened by His power and grace.
Since my goal for writing is to encourage women of faith to pursue God, building their passion and reminding them of their first love, I use realistic characters with flaws and crowns alike, who struggle to seek the Lord in the midst of trial and circumstance.
If I do that in my books, I certainly want to display the same in my blog. He is in all and through all. And that inspires me like nothing else!
Your turn: How has the Lord inspired you today?
