Simon Peter said, ” I’m going fishing.” John 21:3, NLT
Do you know why a computer automatically revert to its default setting? Because that’s what it’s programmed to do.
Simon Peter reverted to his default setting. He was called by Jesus to become a fisher of men, but after denying Jesus three times, Peter reverted to what he was naturally programmed to do – fishing for fish.
During your journey to write for publication, when challenges arise, don’t be surprised if you revert to what you are naturally programmed to do- write as a hobby. In spite of the challenges along the way, if you are certain God has called you to write for publication, determine not to fall back to your default setting; instead, keep moving forward to the new destination God has for you – that of being a professional Christian author.
Sharing the journey,
Responding to God’s call to write: How will you encourage yourself to keep moving forward on your journey to write for publication, when you’re tempted to go back to writing as a hobby?
