Are you experiencing writer’s block in your life? Are you desperately trying to write this incredible story for you own life, that is filled with purpose and passion, a life you know in your heart your were destined to live and hitting a wall? You try so hard to fill the blank pages and you keep coming up short, or you write this story that doesn’t feel right, so what do you do?
It’s time to hand the pen over to the real author of your life…God. We fight so hard to be in control of everything, don’t we? After all we know ourselves best, so we should be able to write a story for our life that matches our vision. This is our first misstep. We do not know ourselves best. The Lord, our creator, the one who knitted us in our mother’s womb and knew our lives before we ever came into being, knows us more intimately than we can imagine. Why wouldn’t we trust God to write our story?
I’ve been in a season of uncertainty and frustration. Life is going by and I have all these dreams on my heart that I’m trying to bring to fruition and I’m stuck. The paper is laid out, I’m picking up the pen and nothing is happening. The enemy is whispering every day…give up, just settle, you’re not special, you will never be more than what you are right now. It is so easy to listen to that lie, to stop believing and trusting that God has an amazing story for my life. When we surrender and submit to God instead of hearing the enemy’s whispers we hear God loud and clear. He will guide our steps, he will remove the writer’s block and start writing your story with you.
If you feel as though you have nothing to give, that you don’t want to write this life story anymore, please do not give up! That is a lie from Satan. As long as you have breath in your body, and faith in God your story is still being written. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.“ Let the powerfulness of this scripture marinate in your heart, spirit, and mind. You are taken care of…God has the plan and it is a good one. A plan that is full of hope and prosperity, that will have you glorify him and be a testimony to all that he is capable of doing in your life and those who believe in him. Your future is secure.
Hand the pen over and allow God to write a bestseller of your life!
