One tip I would give to writers is trust God. Sounds really simple. We can do that, right? Sometimes it’s easier to mouth the words than live the truth.
Can you trust God when you receive rejection after rejection from editors?
Can you trust God when no agent wants to represent you?
Can you trust God when you feel you are wasting your time, that you’ll never be published?
Can you trust God if what you hoped for is never fulfilled?
If God has called you to write, write. Just like it is only our responsibility to share the message of salvation and trust God to save a person, it is our responsibility to write and trust him to open doors.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t do all you can to see your work gets “out there.” I am saying you must trust God to do with your writing and your life what he wants. It may not necessarily be what you want!
Hoping to trust God in all areas of my life, Gloria
