I’ve come to realize that voice is vitally important to a writer in two ways:
- We have to come to embrace and utilize the uniqueness of our own personal voice when we write. This is a topic of craft.
- We also have to come to recognize God’s voice so that we can share what He has for us to share. This is a topic of the heart.
To recognize God’s voice we have to spend time with Him—quality time—in prayer, worship and study. With that commitment of time comes the reward of a deep relationship and the assurance of knowing whose voice we hear. This doesn’t mean there aren’t still times when I question whether or not it’s God speaking, but I can say with certainty that those times become less and less, the closer I get to God.
What are some ways you’ve found to recognize God’s voice? I’d love to hear your stories.
