Write the Vision

Christian writers frequently say they feel called to write. Some Christians are called to be pastors or teachers or evangelists. Some are called to be doctors, lawyers, school teachers, auto mechanics, stay-at-home moms, business leaders.

God has plan for each of us, “plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11, New Living Translation)

One person’s plan is not better or more important than another’s. Each is vital to Him. As McNair Wilson once said, “If you don’t do you, God’s creation doesn’t get done.”

For those He has called to be writers, that plan is to write. Not necessarily to be published. Our obligation is to be obedient and to write. He will take care of the rest. He tells us this in the book of Habakkuk 2:3 (New Living Testament): “This vision is for a future time…and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place…”

If we’re called to write, He will inspire us. He won’t write it for us. He won’t dictate it word for word. He will give us the vision, the ideas, the concepts, the message He wants delivered through our stories. And He gives us the freedom to put the words down. He brings people into our lives to give us the support, the correction, and the refinement to make the words better.

Write the vision and trust Him.

    More than anything, procrastination keeps us from achieving our goals!! … Put your heart and mind into it – DON’T give up – and you WILL achieve your dreams
