How to Talk to God to Get Your Assignment Correct: First Listen!

Updated on October 9, 2015

I Get Special Meaning in My Life and my Work from God

If you want to write about God, or Religion or Spirituality, just write about what you are feeling inside.

I will give you an example of how one should this from a recent development in my very own life. A situation developed in my life over the last few days that is going to require me to go Africa for a few weeks to teach a group of African women farmers how to use a technology and an approach to growing plants that will increase their productivity. These African women need the new technology and methodologies but they need someone to travel to Africa, just for enough time, to teach and help apply the new technology.

It just so happened that I have been called by God to do this thing. How do you know when God is calling you to do something, or you are just calling yourself to do a thing? Trust me, without a lot of ado, you will know when it happens to you. You will know!

In the first place, I do not want to go to Africa right now. I do not want to go to Africa any ways soon. Even in the distance future, I do not have a deep desire, in my heart, to travel to Africa.

Traveling to Africa can be dangerous right now. And by the way, I am too old to be putting my life on the line trying to help some African women become better farmers so that they can make more money and feed their children. This does not even sound like me, does it? I have travelled all over the world and have been to, almost every country, except the countries located in Africa.

If God had asked me to go to Japan, I would have had my bags packed already, because I love traveling to Japan. I have traveled to Japan many times. Actually, I have traveled there twice just to help Japanese farmers out.

So, I have a problem with my thinking, my world view, and my religion, if I am not willing to travel to the African continent for just a few weeks to help out African female farmers who are working hard trying to feed their families and earn a little money on the side.

I have no recourse. I have to travel to African and do a good work for God's honor and glory. It is not about me.

In this example you have learned a little bit about how to write on religious topics, spirituality and God. You just write what you feel inside in as natural a way as you can.

Remember, it is not about you it is about God. If you do not feel anything or know anything about spirituality or religion, you may have a little trouble trying to write about these subjects. Write about what you know. Write about what you feel. Write about what you see. Write about what you hear. Don't try to fake it. You can't get away with faking this one. Trust me.

Finding God, Peace and a Purpose
