I have a lot of words in print, and it scares me. As a fallible—nay, sinful—person with a young perspective on the world, I worry that my words may somehow mislead. Many of my words live in the nebulous world of the internet, in blogs and articles and tweets. I am quite sure a good critic could cross-examine my writing and find great fault.
So this anxiety (which I know is unbiblical per Matthew 6:34) got me to thinking about my role as a Christian author, article-writer, and poet. I spend hours upon hours every week in front of a computer screen, a Bible splayed open along with my heart. What am I doing here? What is the net result of these words strung together?
