Write – even if no one will read it

More than the sum of its parts

I’ve been looking through some of my past posts and came across one I think bears repeating. It is actually from an article I used (with permission) by fellow writer and Inscribe member, Caran Janzen.

The gist of the post is that writing is so much more than the sum of the words on a page.

  1. Writing can be an act of worship. We can rejoice “in what God is working in and through us–regardless of the outcome.”
  2. Writing is an act of creativity that brings joy and satisfaction. “Would you take a pottery class only to be disappointed if your finished works weren’t showcased in a swanky art shop?… feel joy from the creative act itself.”
  3. Writing can bring mental and emotional clarity and healing. “Writing is deeply cathartic” and “helps most people find healing and peace.”
  4. Writing develops our God-given gifts, and He calls us to steward the gifts He’s given us. “An infant doesn’t begin by walking… When you step out in faith to develop the creative gifts you’ve been given, your Heavenly Father is pleased.”

You can read the entire post here:

Should I Write If No One Will Read it?

“Do you feel compelled to write? If so, step out in faith and trust that your writing can be an instrument of worship and praise. Step into joy as you create something from nothing. Step into healing and peace as you explore your life experiences. Step out in boldness fanning into flame the creative gift God has given you.”

(Caran Janzen, FellowScript Magazine, August 2021, page 12)

  1. I love the first point – sometimes life gets so busy (even with other ways of worshipping) that I forget that writing is a way for me to worship in a form God has given me that is unique and special – just between my Lord and me. Thanks for the encouragement, Tracy and Caran.
