Strong and Steady
So, my dear fellow writers, be strong and steady in your commitment to write, always enthusiastic about the Lord’s work, for you know that nothing you write for the Lord is ever useless.
-paraphrased from 1 Corinthians 15:15, NLT
What a wonderful promise God gives us to know that nothing we write is useless. If our manuscript is just for our own personal growth, so be it. If it’s just for the eyes of the editor who rejects it, it has accomplished its purpose. If it is for our critique group’s hearts to draw them closer to God, then it has met its eternal purpose. Whatever God’s plans are, they are important, and He has important plans for every single manuscript we write. Alleluia!
Dear God, thank You for this precious promise. Everything I write is of value in Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
