Seven times Elijah told him to go and look out toward the sea, and seven times he went. I King 18:43

How many times have you submitted a poem, article, short story or manuscript to a magazine or publisher to only receive a discouraging report? Are you almost ready to give up on your dream to write for publication?

Sharing the journey,
Responding to God’s call to write or publish:
