So here goes, my very first blog page. Is that right? I need more knowledge on this. I may need the hand of a few tech savvy friends who can help me put this up and make it tick.
Many years ago, while in an interview session, the panelists questioned my writing skills and without much of a thought I said ‘I have a sample I could bring’. Very enthusiastic! I really wanted to get this job so a little twist would not be bad, would it? I thought it wrong. In an effort to look for something that I had ever noted down and had it published, I came across an old diary where I had noted all my thoughts as a post teen and an undergraduate student, the achievements and the downsides, all of it. It was profound; felt like I was turning the pages of life, of someone I knew yet someone I never knew. Nonetheless, I needed something to forward to my potential employer but unfortunately I couldn’t find and a thought crossed my mind, I could fake it, fake it till you make it(sic) But the noble thing, though painful weighed the mind and I made the phone call. Let’s just say I did not get the job. However, I was blessed with another opportunity akin to my interest.
I thus begin to write, might go for some training ok, but the journey is on. Do I know how to go about it, am not sure, but I have passion. I am stepping forth. Neal Maxwell says ‘If we knew how often the obedience of others is affected by our own, and how often our stepping forth soon brings forth a whole platoon of helpers, and how often our speaking forth soon creates a chorus – we would be even more ashamed of our slackness and our silence.” Are you waiting for me to begin my writing venture? There is a road I have to follow a place I have to go, step by step, bit by bit……. We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9 NLT
