Persistence


So they went ahead with these projects
and brought them to completion.
-2 Chronicles 14:7b, NLT

Is there a manuscript that has been lying, nearly forgotten, in a dusty corner of your mind? You started it, but never had enough time or interest to finish it. Get it out today, roll up your sleeves, and start to write. If you write one page a day, you’ll have an entire adult-length book finished by the end of the year. A children’s book can be finished in a much shorter time frame. Make it your goal to be persistent. Write at least one page a day until your manuscript is done. Then, and only then, can God use it for His glory.

Dear Lord, please renew my interest in this project you have called me to write. Give me the strength. Show me how to find the time. Help me be persistent until the manuscript is finished. In Jesus’s name. Amen.
