I surround myself with paper:
- I carry a planner because using my phone’s calendar has never stuck with me.
- My desk is covered in sticky notes and scrap pages and memo pads with scribbled out notes to myself.
- I even use Evernote, which is a digital notebook.
If I don’t grab catch a thought immediately, it’s a goner.
Do you know how many times I’ve written a great blog post in my head and planned on writing it down once I got home?
Whether you’re the most organized thought catcher that ever lived or you have 10 notebooks and scrap paper falls around your feet when you walk, just write things down!
Habakkuk 2:2 says, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets…”
The Lord was giving instructions and the first words out of his mouth were, “Write this down!”
The point of writing things down is to use that information to teach and encourage others.
None of us lack ideas.
If you’ve ever sat in a meeting, you know that everyone has great ideas–and they normally all come about the time the meeting is supposed to be over.
We just don’t catch the inspiration when the Holy Spirit gives it to us.
Grab your thoughts!
Write them down!
And then go do something with them.
