Make God Your Writing Partner

PartnershipWithGodYou are not in this alone.

Oh sure, you have your own brains, your own intellect, your own ideas and inspirations. But at some point, not to be a Negative Nelly, those will come to an end. And not even a permanent end necessarily, but a temporary end, a seasonal end.

And you know what? That’s okay.

God’s Word says that His strength is made perfect in our weakness (II Corinthians 12:9). Therefore, that means that weakness is required for that perfect strength to make an appearance in our lives.

Lucky thing we have loads of weakness for Him to play with.

Sometimes, people ask me, “What do you do when you get writer’s block?” And much to their surprise, I tell them, “I don’t get writer’s block.” Seriously! I haven’t gotten it in years! Granted, I’m not in school or anything, but I am constantly writing. I’m never short on things to say, lol. But more importantly, when I do feel short on things to say, God isn’t. (Where do you think I get my long-windedness from? *smile*)

So when you’re lost and struggling, when you feel like you’re up against a brick wall or trapped beneath a glass ceiling, make God your Writing Partner.

Film Title: Becoming Jane

Some will encourage you to let your spirit guides lead you or let some ancestor, animal, or other otherworldly being give you inspiration. I say heeeeeeeeeeeeeck naw!!! I’m not about to sit here and lie to you and worse, encourage you to come into bondage to a demonic entity pretending to be your furry little familiar. We ain’t about that life, excuse the slang but not the sentiment.

Whether you believe in God, His Son, and His Holy Spirit is entirely up to you.

But if you’re looking for an AMAZING Writing Partner, One who will give you all the words and let you take all the credit (or at least 90% of the paycheck), then pick God. He’s the best possible choice you could make!
