19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;” (Biblegateway.com NKJV Version)
For years, I have struggled with the aspect of writing. Since my Daddy passed away in 2015, every time I open the computer to type a story idea, Satan comes along and whispers in my ear that I don’t know what I’m doing. I pray for him to leave, and I ask God to give me the words that he wants me to write. Story ideas still keep coming, but I don’t feel confident enough to write those stories.
But I want to write stories. I want to see my name on a published book. Even if I only write one novel in my entire life that becomes published. I have a hard time believing that God would give me the desire to write with story ideas that never really go away, but sometimes, okay to be honest, a lot of times, I believe God sprinkled in the desire and story ideas, but he forgot to give me the talent to write a story.
This verse states that God will give me the words when he will allow me to write what he wants me to write. I don’t know if it will be in 2021. But I need to muddle over these words and remember and pray that someday these stories will be written for God and just how they want them to appear.
Here’s to a wonderful 2021 with no masks, no social distancing, and no Covid. I pray we move on. Last week, I prayed for our country.
I pray that I’m either content with the idea of not writing or go forward with writing my stories.
