Our Senior Editor

Today I have small confession to make. I love to write but I hate to edit! I still remember the editing of Sister Mary Friel in my Child Psychology class. If she found a single error on our daily writing assignment she would give it a big red check mark and return our paper with a provisional F. If we corrected and resubmitted our work by the following class our grade would be redone: if not the failing grade became ours!

This method led me to carefully inspect my work. I checked for spelling errors, footnote placement and grammatical nuance. Seeing the large red slashes across my writing bruised my ego but it trained me to become a better writer.

I love to quote Hebrews 12 about Jesus being the author and finisher of our faith. However Jesus is also wanting to become the chief editor of our hearts. He is waiting for us to submit our plans for final revisions to Him. If this morning we put our plans on His desk, He promises to lovingly correct us and help us turn in an A paper for the day!

    You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be really one thing which I think I might never understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me. I’m having a look ahead in your next post, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!

    Thanks for your comment Alex. No it is not easy to ask God to have the final say in the line by line corrections that shape our daily life. What I am learning is that the final draft of a month or for a year long chapter in my life has a far better ending with Jesus in control.
