Mindful hearts

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. — Colossians 3:16, ESV

There is something in this verse that encourages me beyond words to use words to share the story. When Christ is central to whatever we do, in my case writing, we don’t go off on the tangents our minds wish us to because our heart is connected too.

CS Lewis wrote

“Some people seem to think that I began by asking myself how I could say something about Christianity to children; then fixed on the fairy tale as an instrument; then collected the information about child psychology and decided what age group I’d write for; then drew up a list of basic Christian truths and hammered out ‘allegories’ to embody them. This is all pure moonshine. I couldn’t write in that way at all.”

When Christ is in the mix, it adds layers and layers that some see, others are visually impaired to and many are blind to.
