Trusting God With My Writing

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

    Yes, Gloria, I want to trust God every step of my writing journey, the same as the rest of my life. Some days are easier to do that than others. I think of Sherri in all her pain and weakness, yet wielding the powerful pen of a trusting and obedient servant. What an inspiration she is to me! Her trusting God shines through in everything she writes and says.

    I know you’ve lived this advice you submitted with us, too, Gloria. I know God blesses you for it and will continue to do so.
