Do you ever doubt your writing skills? You know you are a writer maybe you’ve even have published books to prove it. But you sit down at the computer and you think, “I can’t do this. I can’t get my thoughts to come out the way I want them to.” And a small internal voice whispers, “Of course you can’t. Who are you trying to fool? You can’t write and even if you put words on the paper no one will want to read them.” Then you hear. “Writing is a hard world to break into. You have to know somebody who knows somebody to even get your big toe in the door. You might as well give it up.” And you think “Who do I know?” And you come up with “On one.”
But you are wrong! If you are a Christian you know God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and they are bigger than anything, even the publishing business. If God has given you the talent to write He will open the doors that He wants open for you. We don’t need to worry about which doors will get open and how they get open. That is not our job! Our job is to write and keep writing. We know God gave us the talent so we have to trust Him to guide us where we should be.
In James 1; 1 – 8 James tells us to trust God and not be double minded. If we know God gave us our writing talent then we can trust Him to show us how to succeed.
We must practice our faith in our every day lives. When a problem arises we should think of God immediately. Once we have talked to Him we know He has worked the situation out for our benefit. (Romans 8: 28) When we ask we must have faith that it is done. Jesus was the perfect example to this. He would get alone to talk to God and we read where He knew what to do and say. Jesus didn’t doubt God because He knew God was and is bigger and more powerful than anything this world can throw at us. We too must know this. We are God’s children and He works all things for our good. So when we go to our Father we should go knowing whatever we ask will be done.
Satan wants us to be full of doubts and fail. He wants to destroy us. If we are destroyed and fail what glory does that bring God? But on the other hand God wants us to succeed and be prosperous. I fully believe He would not have given us the desire to write if He didn’t want us to be authors.
A good practice is when you sit down to write, first bow your head and ask God to guide you; ask Him to write the story through you. Then start writing and leave the consequences to Him. You will have more confidence in yourself and the work you produce.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time keep writing but more important keep believing and praying and remember God is greater. God bless.
