How often do you write?
Do you make shopping lists? Then, you write.
Do you preach sermons? Then, you write.
Do you keep a journal? Then, you write.
Have you ever heard GOD call you to write?
Have you followed that Call?
I was called to write in 2000, while on my return flight from living 3 months in Hong Kong.
Having always kept a journal of some sort, it seemed like a fun idea.
It turned into a career.
When you follow GOD’s Call, it will lead you to places you may not expect.
You also have a deep sense of peace, knowing you are in His will and in His hands.
How perfect is that? Very “perfect”!

I too have been ‘called’ to write. I have written accounts of prayer assignments, a published autographical book covering my life in the 1970s, and am currently working on a historical novel about John Mark set in Roman first century Mediterranean. The research is fascinating as I want the story to be historically and theologically correct and plausible, but for me the wonderful discipline of an hour a day is hard to attain as I help my disabled husband as well as settling in to a new home and town. I have to be careful not to stare at my screen before bedtime as the light affects sleep apparently. I need my sleep! But to offer my ‘gift’ as an act of praise – I hadn’t thought of. That might well get me through occasional writer’s bloc. Thanks for your little encouraging jottings. Blessings from County Durham.
Knowing the Call of GOD and following it are feats in themselves. That you find a way is amazing!
Bless you for the work of your hands and the love in your heart. And all the best with the “John Mark” story.
