Writer - Five Minute Friday

When I think about the word “writer” I think of people who actually have published a book or two. People who make a living out of writing. I don’t think of myself, a lover-of-journaling and a “when I get around to it” blogger, as writer.

But what does God say about me being a writer? Am I a writer anytime I use the written word to jot down my feelings and experiences? Am I a writer when I write a card with an encouraging note to a friend? How about when I do publish a post on my blog and my mom and dad and a couple of friends are the only ones who read it?

I believe he says yes, Jamie, you are a writer. A writer of words that I put into your heart. Amen to that.

Five Minute Friday


  1. I think we are writers every time we listen to the prompt to put words to paper. The encouragement notes are the best form.

  2. Amen. I am so glad that our identity is not defined by what we receive financial compensation for. You are a writer and you are reaching hearts. Thank you for sharing your five minutes on the prompt writer. I am dropping by from FMF and am glad to see so many whose thoughts often mirror my own. God bless you!
