Thank You Mr. Womack

We are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.  (2 Peter 3:13–16, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – As you might have guessed by now, I enjoy writing and sharing my musings.  Some contain “things that are hard to understand,”  (“Studies in Revelation” for example), and some are quite straight-forward (“The Born Again Experience”).  I hope that none are “ignorant and unstable” distortions of God’s Word.

The only “formal” training I have in writing was my eighth-grade creative writing class, which ignited my passion for writing (thank you Mr. Womack!) and one semester of business writing in college.  Some of my blogs started out as Sunday School lessons that turned into books (“The Born Again Experience,” “Got Spiritual Milk,” and “Studies in Revelation”), while my latest book (“The Brew’s Musings”) started as blogs, which I compiled into a book of devotional readings.  Apart from my blogs, “unless other people get to read [them],” I guess my writing is nothing more than a hobby, “not a book.”  But for anyone wo might want to make me a bona fide author, these books can be purchased at http://www.blurb.com.

But I trust there is more to it than the enjoyment that I get out of it.  I hope it is a “calling,” a ministry of hope, encouragement and inspiration for those who might stumble across my blogs or my books.  Or better still, if it is indeed a calling, to those to whom my musings were providentially sent.  Not because I am a prolific writer, but because I am being faithful to His Word and He knows who will specifically benefit.

My Advice – There are times, of course, where I feel that I am much too preoccupied with the number of hits, likes, comments or shares that I get, when I should be focused on the needs behind them.  I desire for my writings to be done for His glory, not mine.  Pray that I write with whatever “wisdom that God gave” me.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.

  1. I love the way that you write Steve, and also your insights. There is an ease and consistency of solidness throughout that is reassuring. I also envy your focus, that is steadfast on God’s Word and the hope that we share. I’m joining you in your prayer. Blessings brother.
