Are you recreating yourself?

Those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun. II Corinthians 5:17 NLT.

For over twenty years, I worked in higher education – advising, teaching and mentoring college students to succeed. I enjoyed my job, but the more I pursued my call to write for Christian publication, the more I found my passion for my current job waning.

That’s because I was becoming a new person.  As I prepared myself for the writing ministry that awaited me, the passion I once desired for my existing career slowly faded as my new passion for writing burned within me.

Is the passion you once had for your old carer slowly fading way as you prepare to write for publication? That’s because you’re not the same anymore, for God is taking away the old and recreating you into something new – a writer for His kingdom!


Sharing the journey,


Write to Master: Father, thank you for recreating me. I look forward to my new role as your Christian writer.  Amen.
