Writing the names of Jesus is such a simple thing yet it has the opportunity to dramatically impact your faith!
Perhaps one of the greatest disciplines that have really transformed my faith over recent years is the simple discipline of writing the Word.
It started simply as a way to help my exhausted new Mama brain focus on reading the Bible. My soul was willing but my flesh was weak. Sitting down to read the Bible was an invitation for my tired body to succumb to sleep. To be fair, in those early days of motherhood, it didn’t matter what book I was reading, my heavy eyes always won.
Out of desperation and the knowledge that my weary soul desperately needed to be in the Word, I started to write out a few short passages.
Reading is passive, writing is action.
Writing out the Scriptures began as a practice to help me stay away long enough so I could be in the Word daily but it soon transformed into allowing God’s Word to become alive to me in a way it has never been before.
Something happens in the process of allowing His Words to flow from me as I read the words and write them out. I can’t really even explain it, except to say that writing out the Word has made God’s Word become even more important to me than every before.
