I count myself as one of the number of those who learn as they write and write as they learn.
John Piper, Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God
I spend some time free writing in my journal, starting with a question: What if I release . . . ? And something I’ve held on to for a long time appears naturally on the page.
I continue to tap out questions as they come to mind; answers fall gently on the page after them. What if I allow myself . . . ? What if I spent less time . . . ? What if I took more time to . . . ?
When I come to what seems to be the end, I pause. I go back and read over my rambling and find an unintended theme.
What if I let go of my self and, instead, lean into and on my Creator?
I write a prayer. I set an intention.
And it is well.
