The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites. Deuteronomy 1: 6, NLT
When I was pregnant with my first child, I remember the anxiety I felt when I visited my doctor for my weekly check-up, and he told me it was time to deliver. I replied that it couldn’t be time for my delivery because I still had a lot of things to put in place. But in spite of my concerns, my doctor told me to go home, pack a bag and check into the hospital.
In the same way aspiring writer, are you receiving any signs that indicate it’s time for you to begin writing for publication? Even if you’re not as prepared as you’d like to be, are you getting signs that it’s still time to deliver?
Like preparing for the birth of a baby, you’ll never feel completely ready to write for publication. But if the time has come for you to get started, then believe that you have everything you need to begin.
So if the time has come for you to begin writing for publication, there’s only one thing left to do -push!
Sharing the journey,
Writer’s prayer: Father, in spite of my concerns, if it is time for me to begin writing for publication, help me to overcome my fears and begin.
