I was listening to David Crowder's "Obsession" just now as I put the finishing touches on my master's thesis about mercy, and I felt so moved by the song. I thought to myself, "if only my life could encourage people like that." That's when I realized, our lives already do. And for me, it's through writing. What a privilege it is to tell stories that reflect the love of God.
So if you're feeling frustrated or just worn out by your WIP, be encouraged and don't give up because what you're doing matters. It really matters.
