Intentional Audience of One
My core intentional desire is to write for an Audience of One.
“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.” ~Colossians 3:23-24 NASB
He alone can satisfy me. He alone can meet my inner desires to delight and worship Him. He alone can bring delight, fulfillment and rest to my soul.
Living from a whole heart means we are not shackled by the past, tethered by the present, or imprisoned by the fear for the future. ~Lisa Blair
My intentional audience is the Lord alone, but we do not live alone. There are no lone rangers. We live in community whether we admit it or not and whether we feel it or not. We don’t want to be completely dependent on community, but it is a blessing to find a community of iron-sharpening-iron and encouragement.
My human audience are those who are hungry to press into the Lord. To love, delight and surrender in deeper measure to the One Who has captured our hearts. Worship, the Word and prayer are our pursuits to love and know Him more – and to strengthen the Body of Christ in their inner man. I pray you are strengthened and encouraged in your relationship with the Lord and in your relationship with the Body of Christ through this labor of love called writing at Strength with Dignity.
And deep within, there is a desire to reach the unreached. To share the love of God with those who have never heard of His unfailing love. My prayer is that you would find the One whom your soul longs for, the Lover of your Soul, the Prince of Peace.
Intentional Writing Challenge
In February, I intentionally participated in a 28-Day Writing Challenge. The daily writing strengthened my writing skills, encouraged me in community, and helped me breakthrough a glass ceiling regarding page views.
Writing is a solitary endeavor. Being an introvert, I relished this at the onset, but as time continued forward, I missed the iron-sharpening-iron and encouragement that comes with community. The February writing challenge gave me community with encouragement which spurred me forward in my writing endeavors.
Words of encouragement are a gift of the heart to bless and strengthen another in their journey through life. Whether simple or elaborate, it is a gift of value, appreciation and blessing from one person to another. ~Lisa Blair
I believe the Lord called me to write in this season. To research and study the Word of God. To dig and cultivate, to learn and grow, then share the fruit of the harvest.
I agree with the Apostle Paul, and pray you are encouraged, set apart and preserved until we meet Christ Jesus face-to-face.
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:23 NASB
