Then the Lord told Abram, “Leave your country, your relatives, and your father’s house, and go to the land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1, NLT.
God told Abraham he would make him the father of a great nation. But before it could happen, he had to leave his home, his homeland and his relatives and travel to a new land.
Is God calling you to write for Christian publication? Is he asking you to leave something behind to write professionally? A high-paying job? Climbing the career ladder? Less time in front of the TV or computer?
The call to write for Christian publication will require a sacrifice on your part. But if you’re willing to leave something behind to answer your call, God has a future blessing in store for you in the land of publication, just like he had for Abraham.
Sharing the journey,
Responding to God’s call to write his answer:
Name one thing God is asking you to leave behind so you can write for Christian publication? Are you having trouble letting it go? Post your comments on my blog. I enjoy hearing from you.
Aspiring Writer’s prayer: Dear Lord, please help me to leave behind anything that hinders me from writing for you. Amen.
I enjoyed today’s devotional Jeaninne. The question that you posed to us is one that I struggle with almost daily. Keep encouraging writers to do just that – write! Keep holding others to a high standard of accountability and offering fresh hope in all that you share with your readers. It is a blessing to have a teacher like JStokes Ministries in my life. May God bless you and continue to take you higher.
