Hi there! I'm so glad you are here reading this website.
The GodlyWriter website was originally created by me about 8 or 9 years ago. I started it, because I believe God gave me a desire to read, to study, and to share Him and His word with you. I believe I understand how the Psalmist felt when he exclaimed with his mouth and put ink to paper..."My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer." (KJV)
I believe God gave me a desire to teach and the ability to teach through writing by His Spirit that works in me. It's not something I have to work to accomplish. This gift bubbles up within me like water from a deep well. It fills me up and overflows my soul with things I couldn't dream of knowing, understanding, or expressing without God's grace teaching me by His Holy Spirit. God is love and His love abounds with grace and mercy. He does help those who cannot help themselves.
God came into my life at an early age, my first memory of Him occurred one day when I was about 4 years old as I sat in Sunday School. That wasn't the first time that I heard about God or even my first time ever sitting in a Sunday School class. It was the moment that God called me personally through His word and my heart responded!"But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer [allow] the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein." Matthew 19:16-17 (KJV)
I don't remember what the Sunday School teacher said, but my little heart responded to Jesus getting upset at the adult's and saying, "Allow the little children to come to me." In my limited experience adult's were scary, but Jesus stopped what He was doing and brought the little children near Him. He blessed them and He praised them. He held them close. I remember thinking, "He is good." I loved Him.
It's not the first time that He called to me by His word through His Spirit. I am persuaded that He's not finished with me yet!
I don't pretend to know everything about God, everything about His word (Bible), or everything about how to live out this life. l would be lying if I said that I don't know anything about all of these things. That's not a pat on my own back at all, but rather all to the glory to God for He has seen fit to pour out His love into the heart's of mankind by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thank you for visiting GodlyWriter, I'm honored that you took the time to read this far down the page!
