instagram, for me, is one of those social media platforms where i don't want to read, but i want to be captivated by visual masterpieces. that was a bit dramatic, but you get my point. i like to see pictures on instagram. even if the pictures have a few words, i feel like i'm not reading when the picture is surrounded by color or some other graphic distraction.
storytelling is my favorite aspect of writing because i like telling stories. i like providing content for my readers to educate or entertain. i believe words have power. interestingly enough, a picture is worth 1000 words so i do respect the photography culture.
i'm intrigued when people share their stories in creative ways. that's why i enjoy instagram; it's a home for visual storytellers. that being said, i use every social media for business and since i am in the "writing" business, i follow instragram accounts that help me #LookBetterInWriting. (sorry, i had to.)
happy thursday, good people!
today's blog post will not be about writing or grammar, but it will ironically be about words. 4 words. the 4 words i repeat to help me deal with anxiety: LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT.
life is hard. i get it! i'm currently dealing with a lot of worry, stress, anxiety, and so on, but i'm choosing to keep the faith. and not just any faith, but i'm choosing to keep my faith in Jesus Christ.
keeping the faith teaches me how to be obedient to what Jesus requires of me (and all those who believe in Him). one thing He requires is to "...lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith..." (hebrews 12:1-2)
