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. 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 my impressions or at least can work through those vague impressions to something more understandable.
