I’m a writer. Although I’d never classify myself as a writer (because I think of a writer as someone who publishes books), at the heart of things, I’m a writer. It’s how I express myself. It’s how I communicate and process.
I’m learning how incredibly healthy it is for me to write. As I write, it takes all the thoughts that are swirling around in my head and puts them down on “paper” so I don’t have to worry about them anymore.
As life has been changing and racing by the past couple weeks, I’ve had so much on my mind. I’ve been processing all the change in my life. Moving away from people who have supported me, losing a dear friend, and realizing that I graduate in December and that means being an adult. That’s a lot to process. And in 72 hours, I’ve written and processed, and processed and written.
When I write, I experience freedom and peace. Every word that I write is like a little weight that rolls off my shoulders. It somehow feels like the weight of the world is all weighing on my shoulders and as I write, it all falls away like tears rolling down your cheeks.
It’s where I experience the most freedom. It’s where I learn the most. It’s the place I truly surrender all to God.
So my challenge for you is to figure out how you experience freedom. Where do you experience peace? Where of you encounter Jesus the most?
Once you figure it out, make it a priority. Do it often. Don’t let it bottle up.
Be vulnerable with yourself and with Jesus. Find your freedom and live there.
