When I got the e-mail from NaBloPoMo, I ignored it. Later my sister prodded me and with all of about 3 seconds of consideration I signed up. The theme this month is “WANT.”
Ironically, I blog because I want to be a writer and to be a writer one must write. The more I blog, the more readily I write (blog or elsewhere). My writing on this site has come to be much like the articles I write for my church’s monthly magazine. This blog is less journal, more homily.
Psalm 23, familiar to almost everyone, says “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.”
That is not a promise that we will never have unrequited desires, but rather that our needs are met through Him. A commitment to write every day for a month certainly satisfies my immediate desire to write more.
