God does know who you are. He knows what you need and what you need to do. Stay focused on the opportunity He has given you and quit looking at circumstances. You need to be writing. Write when you do not feel like it and more when you do. This is about change. The transition period can sometimes be in the trenches up to your waist in the mundane aspects. Where do you go from here?
Paul was an awesome man of God and the Scriptures that talk about being content with a little or a lot are not just talking about material things. When we are called to change by choice, or by circumstance, sometimes we end up in the trenches. That does not mean we made the wrong choice. Just means we are in the trenches. How do you get out? Realize where you are. If you are lost, acknowledge where you are to be found.
There are so many things I need to know and want to know about writing. Beyond the actual act of writing, I must remember that I can only take in so much at once. As I write to you, I talk to myself and clarify what obstacles lie in the road. Acknowledging the things that need to be moved, changed, or eliminated gives me clarity. Clarity gives me hope. Hope motivates me, and wha la! Here I am, writing to inspire, to encourage, to motivate, to assist, to inform, to make a statement, to hone my craft, to make a living, to glorify God, to understand myself, to move forward, to get out of the trenches.
