A Bright, Shining Light from the Little Dark Study

As the New Year dawns, here's a thought to encourage all writers who belong to Jesus, those who toil away in the "little dark study" day after day and night after night.

The little dark study is often cold and lonely.  Sometimes we feel we're wasting our time there.  We'd rather be anywhere else.

But there's a calling into the darkness we can't ignore.  So we sit, hunched over, fingers curled above the keys, praying for words that will communicate the beauty of the One we serve.  Words that will fill hearts with His glory and the wonder of His great grace.

We are not alone.  We follow in the humble footsteps of other sinners who've gone before us. Sinners like this one:

Amazing Grace.

May God bless you during the New Year, and bless the world through your faithful response to His calling on your life.
