Finish what you’ve started

I want to suggest that you finish what you started a year ago, for you were the first to propose the idea, and you were the first to begin doing something about it.   II Corinthians 8:10-11, NLT

I needed to finish my next book.  It was a book that stemmed from an idea God placed upon my heart some time ago to write, and I knew it was time to bring it to completion. However, I had a hard time finishing the book, because of other obligations that kept getting in the way.

The Christians at the Corinthian church  came up with an idea to collect money to give to the struggling  church in Jerusalem. The apostle Paul knew about their idea, but when he visited the Corinthian church a year later after the idea had been proposed, the Corinthian believers still had not acted on their idea, and he encouraged them to bring it to completion..

Aspiring writer, have you started a writing project, only to find that you have put off completing the project due to other obligations or commitments? I challenge you today to finish what you’ve started, for you are the one who first came up with the idea and the only one who can bring it to completion!

Sharing the journey,


Writer’s prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for the writing ideas you give me. Help me to start and finish every one.  Amen
