Are you ready to graduate?

Don’t get discouraged and give up, for (you) will reap a harvest of blessings at the appropriate time. Galatians 5:7 NLT

I always enjoy attending graduation. Because it’s a reminder that the early morning rising for classes, attending various classes and listening to lecture after lecture, and the late night study hours have finally paid off.

But I’m sure there were days some of the graduates didn’t think they would make it to their commencement ceremony. Days when school was tough and they felt like giving up on their dream of getting a high school diploma or college degree. But since they kept pressing forward instead of giving up, they are able to participate in their school’s commencement ceremonies.

Aspiring writer, like these graduates, you will encounter some challenges during the journey to write for Christian publication. Challenges that may sometimes cause you to want to give up on your writing dream. But just as the high school or college student kept working hard to attain his ultimate goal of a diploma or degree, continue working hard to achieve your ultimate goal too. So that one day we’ll be participating in your graduation as a Christian author.

Sharing the journey,


Writer’s prayer: Father, as I continue to work hard toward my goal of publication, I look forward to the day I will participate in my graduation as a Christian author. Amen.

My challenge to you: Set a date when you want to publish your first article, short story or book. Post your comments on my blog on the date you have set for yourself, and who you will ask to hold you accountable.
