I too am Mary

For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37, NLTDuring his sermon, a minister asked his congregation what they would do if an angel appeared to them and told them they would give birth to the son of God. It wasn’t hard for for me to answer, for I too have been Mary.

On a sunny day while driving to work, God spoke to me and told me I would give birth to a writing ministry. And like Mary, I was confused about how it was going to happen? I started asking God the following questions: “How could I give birth to a writing ministry since I was not a trained writer?” “I’ve always written for personal and not professional reasons, Lord.”  “Are you sure you have the right person?”

Aspiring writer, is God calling you to birth a writing ministry? Are you confused and wondering if he has chosen the right person? Instead of doubting if God can use you, decide instead to be like Mary and say:   “Lord, I am your servant and willing to accept whatever you want from me.” “May everything you say will happen come true.”  “For I know that nothing is impossible with you.”

Sharing the journey,


Writer’s prayer: Father, thank you Lord for birthing a writing ministry within me.  In spite of my doubts, I believe that nothing is impossible with you. Amen.

Writer to writer: What type of writing ministry is God birthing in you? Are you preparing for your delivery? Be sure to post your comments on my blog.
