I knew from an early age that I wanted to write. I loved to create stories and entertain people. What I didn’t know was that God had given me a gift…a gift to use to bring glory to Him.
I believe we are born with dreams because of the gifts God grants us when we are forming in the womb. Sometimes we don’t recognize those gifts…sometimes we are afraid to even embrace our dreams. We’re afraid of failure. But God has given us a promise that we can do all things through Him. We just have to believe. We have to have faith. We have to trust in God, and in our abilities. If we never try, we will never know what we might have achieved. And that’s failure.
Before I write a word, I pray for God to inspire me, empower me, and give me the courage to write without fear. I thank Him for blessing me and for the opportunity to share His love through the written word. Without God, I would never have reached my dream of being published. I don’t know what your dreams are, or what gifts God has blessed you with, but I do know that with God you can achieve…if you believe.
Psalm 37:5-6 “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.”
