Am I Ready for Some No, Not Football, CRITIQUING?

Author requests article critique

Dear Jesus,

I joined a Christian website, Faithwriters.com, and am so excited to combine the writing skills you gave me with my passion for you.

I wrote a Valentine's letter to you and after writing my second article, I submitted it for critiquing. Am I nuts? Only my second article and I already want critiqued? Talk about going out on a limb and making myself vulnerable.

Being critiqued is downright scary Lord! I am swallowing the fear and doing it anyway. I want my writing to be the best it can be, to serve you. I want to be an instrument that you, oh Lord, mold and shape to reach whoever you have in your plan to reach. Words are so powerful.

I trust you will be sending me the exact critics of your choice. I know you will choose the right people to help me grow in my spiritual writing journey.

My job is to submit (my writing and to Your will.) My biggest obstacle to overcome is my pride. I will look at every critique for my remaining life as a learning opportunity.

Thank you for everything Jesus, especially my hands to type with, my think pad and the creative side of my personality.

Love

Marla

God is Not Against You - He Came on an All Out Rescue Mission to Save You


...in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them... 2 Cor 5:19

Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Acts 13:38

I really enjoyed this. It was a sweet, yet intimate, talk with Jesus. I think it is a great way to show people that praying is just like talking to Jesus. The critique i would offer is to save the exclamation points for dialog. Instead, let your words do your exclaiming for you. The same thing with the question mark, use only one, except for rare times. I think you have a great outlook about writing. Only an author and Jesus knows how scary it can be to put your most intimate thoughts out to the world to be torn or picked apart, but if that is what God is calling you to do, then you must listen. I think you have a great attitude and a nice start on the writing. Don't give up for you will get discouraged. Though, as Christians, we know Jesus will help us through the tough times. :)
