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.
