  • "An excellent example of a group blog, a true community of like-minded but highly individual writers. . . . Topics range from the state of Christian publishing to craft issues to lyrical meditations on writing as a spiritual discipline."

GREAT post. I love what you said about confusing audacity with humility. We have every reason to be humble about ourselves, but every reason to be audacious in Christ. Thanks so much for sharing!

Thanks, K.M. I'm glad you agree with me. If we can't be bold with our own words, especially our expression about Him, then what are we doing?

Good points, Dee. Oswald Chambers writes, "The way we continually talk about our own inability is an insult to the Creator. The deploring of our own incompetence is a slander against God for having overlooked us. Get into the habit of examining in the sight of God the things that sound humble before men, and you will be amazed at how staggeringly impertinent they are. . . . Never bother your head as to whether what you say sounds humble before men or not, but always be humble before God, and let Him be all in all. . . . One individual life may be of priceless value to God's purposes, and yours may be that life."

Thanks for challenging Master's Artists to be bold for Christ and confident in Him.

Love, Jeanne

How about my oldest daughter saw the title of your post and looked at me and basically said, "Mom, is that you?" Then she had the audacity to scold me about being on FB too much and that I needed to sit there and finish my book! God will use a truthful child to tell you the truth.

Thank you for the words of wisdom from Oswald Chambers. It does take courage to be true to the story God has put in your heart. I am encouraged by this blog.
