Writing: Motivation

It has been a few months since I have written anything on this blog. With all that is going on in the wider world outside my relatively quiet corner, I am still bothered by it all. I try not to look at the news very often, but out of the corner of my eye, I know that there is immense suffering and it pains me to have to accept the truth that true evil does indeed exist.

But, God is on his throne and has always been, is right now on his throne, and will forever be on his throne. He will defeat evil; God always wins. I ask that you all join me in prayer for all the suffering souls at this very moment in every corner of this world. May God surround his children and protect them and give each one peace and assurance that he will deliver them from evil.

Sometimes in the chaos and suffering of this life we lose our motivation; fear distracts us, stuns us into inaction. Anxiety robs us of our hope.

But, God is our hope. We hope in Our Lord. We trust in his protection. He is our refuge, just as the psalms assure us. Mortal man is just mortal man. God is the ruler of the universe and he alone is King.

It is difficult in the darkness to remember that God is that light at the end of the abyss. In fact, he is the light that shines through each darkened corner in which we might cower out of fear. God is our light and he alone is our salvation.

Let’s pray for each other without ceasing. Let’s lift each other up. Let’s motivate each other with our words and our actions.

As writers, let’s make each word we write give hope to our hurting world. With our words, let’s inspire, let’s remind people that this world is a beautiful place and that evil will never win. With our words, let’s create beauty and hold tight to all that is true and give a voice to the voiceless among us.

May God bless us, protect us, and keep us safe from all evil.
