I have been a Christian author and publisher for the last 6 years – but I have been “writing” for over 20! Writing is something that you can’t help. Writing is a passion. Something that drives you within! Is that you? Why yes, of course it is. But you just have to believe it!
I used to think that writing was just an outlet. Just something to pass the time. Nothing serious – just thoughts. But as I began to grow up and learn more about the Lord, I realized that it was a gift. And this gift was meant to be shared.
Like most Christian writers, you may believe that no one wants to read what you have to say. You may believe that your writing is too preachy or un-motivational or boring – but God’s word is alive and well! And it lives inside of you.
As a Christian writer,
- You must write because the world needs it.
- You must write because Satan is a liar and you need to tell God’s truth.
- You must write to tell God’s story.
- You must write to heal yourself and others.
- You must write to bring unsaved souls to Christ.
If you didn’t know by now, your gift of writing is truly a gift. And God gives each one of us at least one! You may have been blessed to sing, dance, speak, minister, etc. as well – and God may touch you with these additional gifts – but writing is an art form in itself! I thank God that He gave me this gift. And so should you.
So, Christian writer – what are you waiting for? Stop allowing Satan to convince you that no one wants to hear or read what you have to say. Stop allowing fear and self-doubt to stop you. And stop allowing others to discourage you. You’ve got all the skills that it takes to become successful – but first you have to believe and have faith – knowing that God doesn’t make mistakes!
So why not put pen to paper right now? Let’s share God’s word of salvation today!
