Why Write the Vision?

Why write at all?
...Because I want to. Because I like to. Because I can.

Do I have a skill? Do I have a talent? Do I have a gift? I don't know, but I do know this...I can't not write.

Why write the vision? Because the day of His coming may be near. And if not that, the day of my going, or your going for that matter, could be near. So, I'd like to write so that many will hear and seek the Lord and call on Him? God's Word says, "Let him who has ears, hear." I say, "Let him or her who has eyes, read."

Also, when I'm called home I want to hear God say, "Good job. You used up everything I gave you."

And so, I write.

Habakkuk 2:2 (New American Standard Bible)

    2Then the LORD answered me and said,
         "Record the vision
         And inscribe it on tablets,
         That the one who reads it may run."

Habakkuk 2:2 (New Living Translation)

  2 Then the Lord said to me,   “Write my answer plainly on tablets,
      so that a runner can carry the correct message to others.

Habakkuk 2:2 (The Message)

  2And then God answered: "Write this.
   Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
   so that it can be read on the run.
