Words come easily to me.
Well, written words come easily to me. Spoken words are a different story.
Spoken words don't allow me as much time to pause and consider. To think through or take back. I often find that I forgot half or more of what I'd planned to say and things don't always seem to come out as I wish they had.
I spend too much energy thinking of things I said after the fact, in the same way that I weigh my written words, I weigh my spoken words - but before and after they are spoken. In the moments, I don't remember those thoughts as quickly as I would like.
But, written words are a comfort to me. I love to re-read meaningful cards, books and verses. Writing down my thoughts and prayers is a huge source of blessing to me.
And, to say that I am more comfortable writing something than saying something would be 100% accurate. I'd much rather write a letter than make a phone call.
So, in the midst of knowing these things about myself - I ask God to keep me real. That I would be true to who He made me to be whether in written word or spoken word.
The deepest thoughts of my heart though - those come out in writing. And, in those moments I am so grateful for the comfort of written words.
