Remember my name, (Fame).
I'm gonna live forever,
I'm gonna learn how to fly, (High).
Fame, Irene Cara, 1980
Immortality, and not the Spiritual kind. People long to be remembered, noticed, important. Fame. It's the stuff reality show contestants long for. Don't we all want at least be noticed? We may not long for fame in the true sense of the word, but we at least want people to remember our name.
For me, its the hope to see my name in print. I want to write. And while I love writing, I long for my writing to be noticed. Remember my name! (fame!) To be acknowledged as good enough to appear in print makes my writing worthwhile. But what if nobody reads?
Let's just say my blog stats are not off the charts. I don't go visiting other blogs as I resolved to spend less time on the computer at the end of 2010. So of course, my readership dropped. I don't have a book or column (Fame!) to bring people over to read.
At times I question whether to keep writing. Yet, every time I do, God sends me a little nudge to keep going. So I keep writing, even if I'm unsure of who's reading. Because I write for the Lord.
I love him. And because I love and trust in him...I'm gonna make it to heaven.
Light up the sky like a flame, (Fame). I'm gonna live forever. Because I remember HIS name!
