When I switched over from my Stories of Thycea blog to this one, I changed the name because I felt like this better fits as a reason of why I write.
Thycea (or as the land is called now, Nokri’ah) is a very narrow part of my writing. While I love those fictional characters and the plot, my writing is not limited to that one fantasy series. Recently, I’ve been writing short stories, poetry, and even essays, and, while most of those will never be published, I would love to share them, and (since I am very opinionated—the Sherlock gene of my existence… see About the Author 😉 ) I want to share what I believe to be true with others.
Because what really unites my writing is my purpose.
I don’t belong in this world, and my King is setting up His kingdom somewhere else.
John 18:36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world…. But now my kingdom is from another place.”
He is my King, and I am just one of His servants on this earth until He chooses to take me into His kingdom. Everything I do, I try to do for Him—though I fail in many ways each day. But I can say that my writing—whether fiction or truth, prose or poetry—is for Him, and I can honor and glorify Him by sharing His truth.
I am one of His warriors, bound by His code and laws, but bound of my freewill because I love Him for what He has done for me. So I fight for Him.
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
I write for Him. My battle is in the words I write. Some fight for God on the missions field, some in the science lab, others as parents teaching their children, but I fight for God in the words I write.
I write for the King.
My heart is stirred by a noble theme
as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.
