Hi, I’m Cheryl and this is a new beginning with regards my writing. I have been a writer most of my life, however, until the day I met my Redeemer, my writing was self-centred and empty. Now it’s full of testimonies of how amazing our Heavenly Father is, and forever will be. Poetry, prayers and devotionals are just some of what I enjoy writing.
I have suffered a long dry spell away from my keyboard and screen. I am trying to understand why, and have a string of justifiable reasons that I am working through.
One thing I have never stopped is journaling, and through my written notes, I am able to see where I have been wondering.
I am published in various Anthologies of Verse, and in two different e-zines, but am yet to publish a book of my own. This is a dream I pray I will be able to fulfil, just need the confidence to pull me out my comfort zone.
I continuously wrestle with my thoughts, and wonder if procrastination plays a bigger role than I realise. Also, I find that I carry too many stories in my head at a time, and tend to lose focus. For these reasons, I pray that God would allow my creative writing juices to flow in such a way, that His Mighty name may be glorified in what I pen.
What I enjoy about the CWOSA group, is the regular emails that make me accountable, which is a discipline I need. I love writing and can’t help wanting to write all the time, and because I write for God, I feel compelled to share further than my journal notes.
So, here’s to my Lord and King; thank You Father God for my wonderful gift of creative writing, for which I pray I will use effectively, diligently and regularly, to extol You and Your glorious Kingdom, in Jesus precious name I pray, amen.
