Write Brilliant


On a recent post, I shared my honest struggle with how the political landscape is tearing friendship and families apart.

I invited you to spend 7-days alongside me praying, “Holy Spirit, what do you want me to do today?” You can grab the free download here.

I’ve been reflecting on the entries. A consistent pattern emerges.

Call a specific person.
Encourage your tribe with this word.
Be fully present with your friends today.
Send a gift to a specific person.
Teach them how to tell their story.
Take note of how you spend your time today.
Seek to serve.

The pattern is outward, other oriented.

The sacred echo is to love others more deep, more specific, in more meaningful ways. Empower others to do the same.

One sweet reader, Jen, wrote, “I heard the name (of) a dear friend who I haven’t connected with for a long time and asked her to meet for coffee. We had a marvelous time. My heart is full!”

Nancy wrote: “(The) Holy Spirit really has helped remind me who I am and have been.”

Last week, I felt compelled to create a free template to equip you share your story or tell your testimony the next time you’re asked. We’ve been awed by the response.

Already this post and free download is being used in churches, small groups, and women’s ministries around the world.

Why do I share this?

Because right now it matters much how you live each day.

The invitation to lean into the Holy Spirit is for you, yes, you.

Today, it matters that you share the story God is writing in you.

Your history is His Story.


So sit down and write. Pop up a video on Facebook live. Send out a tweet proclaiming the goodness and faithfulness of God. Share some positive spiritual news, maybe an answered prayer, with a friend or coworker.

And continue to ask, Holy Spirit, what do you want me to do today?

What have you been sensing as you lean into the Holy Spirit?

(And remember Lent begins Wednesday, March 1. If you haven’t ordered your copy of Beloved: 40 Days in the Gospel of John, grab one today).
