Embrace the Call: Writing - A Journey of Healing, Connection, and Surrender

Life has a way of taking unexpected turns, leading us down paths we never imagined. In the span of a year, I experienced a series of transformative events that redirected my life and deepened my connection with God. In this blog post, I want to share my personal journey of embracing the call to write, which emerged from these experiences. Through the healing power of connection, the arrival of a precious grandchild, the solitude of illness, and the surrender to God's guidance, I found solace and purpose in writing. Join me as we explore the profound impact of these events and the role they played in shaping my creative journey.

A Broken Ankle: A Forced Pause and Self-Reflection (March 2023):

In March 2023, my life took an unexpected turn when I broke my ankle. Suddenly, my active lifestyle came to a halt, and I was forced to slow down and find stillness. During this time of physical healing, I embarked on a journey of self-reflection, seeking meaning and purpose in the midst of my temporary limitations. It was during this period of forced pause that I sensed a gentle whisper from God, beckoning me to explore my creativity through writing.

The Miracle of New Life: A Deepened Connection (April 2023):

In April 2023, amidst my healing process, I had the extraordinary privilege of witnessing the arrival of my youngest grandchild. As I held this precious baby in my arms, I felt a profound sense of awe and wonder. Through her innocent eyes, I saw the beauty of creation and felt the presence of God's love in a tangible way. This experience deepened my connection with the divine and planted a seed of inspiration within me.

The Battle with Illness: Solitude and Reflection (November 2023- January 2024):

In November 2023, a season later, I unexpectedly contracted COVID-19. While it was not during the pandemic, it was a challenging time that brought isolation and uncertainty. Throughout my battle with illness, I experienced moments of solitude and reflection. In the midst of physical and emotional struggles, I turned to writing as a means of finding solace and understanding. Through the act of putting my thoughts and experiences into words, I discovered a profound sense of healing and a renewed connection with God.

Surrendering to God's Guidance: Embracing the Call to Write:

Through the broken ankle, the miraculous birth of my grandchild, and the battle with illness, I learned the importance of surrendering to God's guidance. It was through these challenging moments that I discovered the power of writing as a means of self-expression, healing, and connecting with others. Despite any doubts or judgments from the world, I surrendered to God's call and allowed my writing to become a conduit for His love and grace.
