From then on, Jesus begin to preach. (Matthew 5:17, NLT)
What is a wilderness experience in the life of an aspiring writer? It is a season designed to prepare you to write for publication for the Christian marketplace. A period of time to help you hone your craft, develop your character and strengthen your faith, so you’ll be ready for the ministry God has given you to do as a Christian writer.
The good news is that your wilderness experience is not designed to last forever. Just as Jesus came out of the wilderness and began his ministry of preaching, healing and teaching, a time will come when your wilderness experience will end, and your writing ministry will begin.
So make sure you are learning all that you need to know when you enter your wilderness experience, so you’ll be ready when it’s time to come!
Sharing the journey,
Writers prayer: Father, thank you for my wilderness experience. I look forward to coming out to begin my writing ministry. Amen.
