The writing prompt today: WRITE has clenched my heart like a tight fist. 

I've felt compelled to write for some time. In the end I end up procrastinating by redesigning my blog (over and over and over again) or by reading words others have written on their blogs and then thinking and ruminating and even pontificating! 

I’m scared. I’m scared to write but I feel called to write – what I feel led to write – even what I want to write. 

I am scared of people wondering, “who does she think she is that she can say …” and “why in the world would she put THAT kind of information out on an extremely public venue.” 

Who am I? That goes around and around in my head as I think about writing and sharing my story. Why is my story valid? Why should my story matter? Does it even matter if I write?

I think it does – only because I feel a prompting of the Spirit of God. 

But how does one get rid of the fear to WRITE?

I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo's Five Minute Friday: 

Five Minute Friday

Stay tuned for the answer to my question above.


  1. Stacy,I think you should write and share your story and how God is leading you.Have a blessed weekend.

  2. write for yourself, not others... write what you want on what you want.... i do understand what you mean here... sometime when i write my post i start over thinking it and wondering what others will think... I try to take my own advice but sometimes i can't.

  3. Stacey, I hope you keep listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and that He keeps nudging you to share.

  4. Stacey, I hope you continue to listen to those promptings and let your words flow!
