Somethings in the book Youth Aflame have stuck with me. One of those things is the instruction to never act on a vague impression. Only act on clear, vivid impressions. What has this got to do with anything? Well, I apply this to my writing.
Writing devotionals from the Bible can be “miss and hit”. In that I try to come up with a devotional idea from a Bible passage, but wind up with only a vague impression. I’m learning to not act on vague impressions, but to write from clear impressions from Bible passages.
As much as I’d like to write everything from each and every Bible passage, it’s best, I think, to write from the times when I am clear about the impressions I have from Bible passages. So, I did and the person I read it to said my devotion sounded true.
Clear mind, sound writing.
