I have no choice!





God has chosen me and given me this sacred trust and I have no choice. I Corinthians 9:17

While I have worked part-time for a number of years since beginning my journey to write professionally, I am currently looking for a full-time job.

But as a former full-time employee, I understand what returning means. It means I may not have as much time to write as I had before. It means I may not have as much mental energy as I had before. It means I may not have as much physical energy as I had before.

But even if I return to full-time employment, I will still find a way to write. For like the apostle Paul, God has chosen me and given me the sacred trust of writing for Him. He chose me when I heard him speak to me on my way to work one day and he told me it was time to leave my job. He chose me when he started awakening me at the crack of dawn to read his Word and write down the insights I received. He chose me when I battled discouragement after giving up my career, and he kept reminding me of my new calling. He chose me when I didn’t have the monetary resources to attend the writing conferences or buy the books I needed to hone my craft, yet he provided a way to attend every conference and the financial resources to purchase every writing book.

I have been chosen and given the sacred responsibility to write for the kingdom, so no matter what happens regarding my employment status, I will write. Because I simply have no choice.

Sharing the journey,


Responding to God’s call to write: Is God calling you to write for Christian publication? Then no matter what changes occur in your life along the way, remember you have no choice but to keep writing. Post your comments on my blog if this post ministered to you today. I enjoy hearing from you!
