They replied at once, “Good! Let’s rebuild the wall! So they began the good work.” Nehemiah 3:18, NLT.

Not a day passes when I hear someone say they’re going to write a book. Yet few people ever begin.  Why? Because they haven’t realized that writing a book requires time, dedication and a whole lot of hard work.

Nehemiah knew the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem would require a lot of dedication, time and hard work. But he also had a strong desire for the wall to be rebuilt. So with the blessing of the King and the help of his friends, he got to work.

Aspiring writer, having a desire to write a book someday is noble, but someone has aptly stated that “dreams don’t work unless you do.”  In other words, writing a book is going to require some dedication, commitment and hard work on your part.  But if you have a strong desire for your book to be written, you can get it done.

Are you tired of saying you’re going to write the book someday that God has placed on your heart to write? Then get to work!

Sharing the journey,
