Today, I’m making a promise. And these 3 things could easily be 30 things. This is not an exhaustive list, but simply to declare these 3 things.
So much of blogging and writing is coming up with topics and words of interest to the reader. To share something of value – words, thoughts, ideas – that adds to your life is the goal.
Today, instead of selecting a topic, I’m making this promise.
Here are 3 things I’ll never write…
#1 – I’ll never write coffee is bad for you.
Coffee wakes me up and gets me going. I am one of those people who genuinely loves the taste of coffee, not just the benefits of copious amounts of caffeine.
My husband hates coffee. Honestly, I’m not sure he’s actually ever tasted it. I think he just decided it was something he did not like. My best female friend doesn’t drink coffee, either. I don’t know how we’re still friends.
Unless a doctor tells me I have to give up coffee for health reasons, it will remain a part of my morning ritual. And I cannot imagine writing one negative word (much less an entire blog post) about coffee being bad for you.
#2 – I’ll never write leggings are ONLY for working out.
Come on, ladies. Can I get an amen? A visit inside my closet currently reveals twelve pair of ankle length leggings, in shades of black and gray. When the weather gets too hot, I move to the drawer with Capri and knee-length leggings.
Now, let me clarify.
If I’m not exercising in leggings, I wear long, loose t-shirts or tunics over them. Dear person who first thought of creating tops for women to hang below the area that should never be seen while wearing leggings, thank you…a hundred times, thank you.
Trust me, I can agree there are times when leggings are not appropriate.
Obviously, if your work or school dress code does not permit leggings, you must adhere. And we could work together to compose a list of situations in which jeans, dress slacks, a skirt or dress would be the better choice.
Until those situations arise or a better option comes along, I’ll keep wearing my leggings and I’ll not write against it.
#3 – I’ll never write the Bible is outdated or irrelevant.
Throughout history, there have been those who spoke against God’s word and its relevancy. In our lifetime, this is at an all-time high.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
I believe the Bible IS the word of God. I believe it was God-breathed and recorded for future generations.
I believe the word of God is alive. How can we know this? When we read the Bible, it comes alive to us. It brings revelation and understanding to our mind. It activates the spirit of God in us.
It penetrates our very being – if, by faith, we believe.
The Bible is not a history book, a psychology text, or a scientific journal. The Bible is the description God gave us about who He is, and His desires and plans for humanity. GotQuestions?Org
That is a stellar description of what God’s word is and is not. Because His word lives in me and I know it to be true, I’m committed to share this. The Bible is for today and I’ll not write anything that indicates otherwise.I'll not write the Bible is out dated or irrelevant. #3things #write Click To Tweet
