I have fought a good fight. I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. II Timothy 4:7, NLT
Today is the end of another year for me as a Christian writer. And though I did not accomplish all that I wanted to accomplish in 2014, I can say, with confidence that I gave it my all.
Paul knew that his life was about to end as he sat in a Roman jail. But as he reflected on his ministry as a preacher of the Gospel to the Gentiles, he wrote in his letter to Timothy that he was ready to die because he had given it his all.
Aspiring writer, don’t be discouraged if you did not accomplish all that you wanted to accomplish in 2014. Instead, take time and reflect today on what you did accomplish this year. If you sought to remain faithful to your call as a Christian writer, in spite of the obstacles and challenges you encountered along the way, you can end this year, confident that you gave it your all.
Sharing the journey,
