Would you give your little?

Lately I’ve had doubts whether I should even write anymore.
Honestly,I don’t have any writing genes in my blood.I am a first of my my kind in my family.
Let me tell you.I m nervous, quaking in my chair most days.Everyday I strive to reach or meet my minimal goals.
When I see better writers I wonder should I even do this anymore.
As I sit at the pew wondering on quitting.
This message comes to me.God wants us to offer what we have remember the boy who offered the 5 loaves of bread and the two fishes.All that was required was to give his little.

Mom will you give your little,no matter what that is,god is able to use it.God can use our talents.Even a little in his hands is much.

We can see miracles as we offer our little.Isn’t it amazing to see them multiplied,not because of our might but because of his grace.

And Our Pastor’s words echoes in my mind – “Don’t Let what you can’t do ,keep you from doing what you can do.”.

John 6:9-13

9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”

10 Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples[a] to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.” 13 Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten.

  • You are spot on! God doesn’t ask for a talent we don’t possess. He asks what we DO have.

  • I’m not sure that little voice that says “what are you doing this for” ever goes away. I’m pretty sure it’s of the enemy most of the time. If you think God asked you to write for Him and even one benefits (that one could be you as writing helps your process your thoughts) keep at it. Be sure you keep the comments, emails, etc. where you hear back from people how you impacted them. They help keep us going too. Be blessed.

  • Thank you for this! Sometimes, the only way to know if my writing is getting seen is by looking at my blogging stats. But, that shouldn’t be how I evaluate. Thank you for reminding me that my writing is a sacrifice to him. If he only encourages one lady with my thoughts, that’s the one lady he meant for me to minister to that day. One is more than enough for my little offering. Great thoughts for a writer without genes. 🙂 Keep up the good words!

  • I think all too often we get caught up in the idea that in order to do something, we must excel at it.

    If you feel God’s calling to write, he’ll work in you to shape you into a stronger writer. Excellent writers are not always the people that God reveals the most hard-hitting messages from. Some of the best messages I’ve heard were from people who were not wordsmiths, but who simply followed the passion God put on their heart to share.

  • So true,when we are called by him,the words are not ours but his 🙂

  • Thank you my friend for your kind words of encouragement

  • Thank you for being here

  • thank you for the insight my friend.I guess it is the comparison against other writers that brings out the insecurity while the most important thing to remember is god’s calling for each writer is unique
