Writing is an act of faith, not a grammar trick.” – E.B. White
There’s one thing I’ve learned, writer. And it is that—above all—writing is an act of faith.
When we begin, we rarely have a full picture of what our story will become. Some of us have no picture at all. Just a cameo of a character with a problem. When the enthusiasm that launched us begins to fade, it’s important to remember that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion.
There will be times when you write, writer, and you feel as if you are sprinting ahead of the pack, destined to win. There will also be days when you sweat it out. When questions arise. And discouragement threatens. But I encourage you, writer…these days don’t come because you’re doing something wrong. They come because you’re doing something very right. And no great work was accomplished without opposition.
So, be encouraged, writer. Just like giants living in the Promised Land, your struggle is evidence of the great value of your goal.
You will always find a giant blocking the way to something precious. And your story is no different. But just like the Caleb and Joshua—the giants you face cannot stop you. Your King is greater. And He never destines His writers to failure. No, the giants we face are only what will strengthen us and our story in the end.
Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
So, I encourage you today, writer, no matter what you’re facing in your writing journey: Be of good faith! Your King is at hand. Call on His help and wisdom and move bravely onward.
Every writer writing.
