Inspiration: A Note from MeLissa
high school, I remember writing a letter to the editor of our local
newspaper. It was a small town paper that was printed once a week. I was
distraught about the lack of support our high school volleyball team was
receiving. We had made it to the district finals, but only a handful of fans
showed up to see us win. I wrote down some thoughts and sent it to the local
paper. When the paper arrived on the townspeople's doorstep that week, boy
did it raise a ruckus!
shocked! People talked about that article for days! Most of all, the article
brought results! Fans began supporting our team.
was during this experience that I realized the power of the written word.
The editor of the paper asked me to begin writing the sports section of the
paper. I loved the experience of writing for our small town.
that time, I've been writing. However, I no longer write the sports section.
I remember thinking, "If people can be impacted by a sports article, why
can't they be impacted for eternity?" After receiving my education at a
Bible college, the major papers in the nation weren't beating down my door
with job offers. I knew I needed to find another way to reach the millions
of people I dreamed of reaching. Then it hit me -- the Internet is the key!
began writing and editing for
AllAboutGOD.com because they reach hundred
of thousands of people a year! The Internet truly is the mission field of
the 21st century! I have the privilege of sharing with the world that Jesus
Christ died for their sins on the cross. Jesus was buried and rose again to
offer them eternity in heaven. What is better inspiration than that?
