Remaining Faithful

The writing life can be a lonely life. Hence, for many writers, the temptation to quit. But quitting is not an option for the person called by God to write.  

Writing for God is serious business.  In fact, when God calls us to write, we must obey His calling if we truly love Him.  Bottom line, we relinquish our choice to quit, to do things our way. 

If you’re struggling with thoughts of quitting on your writing call, think again. Remember what is at stake.  Souls hang in the balance.  That next article or story you write may be the very one that brings a lost soul into the Kingdom of God. 

Remember what Jesus said:  “He who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22). I encourage you to endure to the end. When you stand before our Lord, you will be so glad you did.

    • Yes, it is a temptation to quit, Jan. And you are right in going back to that “still small voice” that called you to write and will sustain you as you write.

      Thanks so much for your post! 🙂

  1. Don’t quit!! Just when you think it’s not gonna happen, an agent asks for a full.

    I’m working on finishing up my novel now so I can send it to that agent! Wooooooooooo!!!

    • Dear, dear Pam,

      You have no idea how happy I am for you! I have watched you pray and endure, pray and endure, pray and endure. You have been faithful when there seemed to be no reason to be faithful. You have been diligent when there seemed to be no hope. And now you are experiencing the victory. Glory to God!
