Waiting for answers to your questions

I will climb up into my watchtower and wait to see what the Lord will say to me and how he will answer my complaint.  Habakkuk 2:1 NLT

In biblical times, stone watchtowers were built on city walls or ramparts so that watchmen could see enemies or messengers approaching their city while still at a distance. When Habakkuk asked God how long wickedness would prevail in his homeland, Judah, the watchtower was used figuratively as a place for him to go and wait for God to respond to his concern.

Aspiring writer, what specific questions have you presented to God regarding your call to write for publication in the Christian field? Have you asked him to confirm if he is really calling you to write? Have you asked him what type of writing he wants you to do? Have you asked him whether you need to downsize your current career to write?

There is nothing wrong with asking questions as you begin the journey of writing for publication. So go ahead and present your questions to God. Then climb up into your “watchtower” and wait for an answer!

Sharing the journey,


Writer to writer:  What questions do you have as you begin the journey to write for publication? Post them on my blog and I’ll try to answer one for you.

Writer’s prayer: Lord, I have a lot of questions as I begin the journey of writing for publication.  I will wait for you to answer every one. Amen.

One Response to Waiting for answers to your questions

  1. Praise the Lord J. Stokes…as usual you continue to inspire me to be all that God wants me to be. You may find this hard to believe, but I questioned God all the time. Sometimes I am so unsure. I just recently stepped out and retired from my Full time job. I could no longer continue in a job where everyday I would complain. This went on for years. There was so many times I prayed to God to give me the patience and wisdom. I would be a peace for a few days, then the next thing I would feel uneasy. Today, I have such a peace and I am so glad that I stepped out on my faith. I have so much more time to spend with my screen writing and writing for my show. Again, Thanks for being there. God Bless You. J. Stokes (LOL)
