I can feel it in the air. Spring is just around the corner. Yesterday morning, I wore only a light jacket to church. The air was balmy, almost like summer. What a great feeling after a foot-high snowfall only a week ago!
At Bible study Saturday night, we spoke of the seasons of our spiritual journey. There are also seasons to our writing journey. In what season are you?
Are you a Spring Writer? In full bloom with lots of growth? Or are you a Summer Writer, enjoying some wonderful fruit at long last? Perhaps you’re an Autumn Writer in the process of shedding some serious distractions that are keeping you from producing as you should. Or maybe you are a Winter Writer, seemingly dead on the outside, but pushing down deep writing roots on the inside.
Whether you’re a Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter Writer, you’re in a season designed by God. You won’t stay in that season forever. You’ll move on to the next one. When you’ve completed the cycle, you’ll start over again.
But with each new season, you’ll be stronger and smarter as you allow Holy Spirit to be the Gardener of your writing soul.
