I have been called to write. I have questioned this many times, but the Lord keeps reassuring me. He has placed in my heart this desire to write, and He helps me everyday to when I write. He has called me to write then given me the ability to write. And just so I don’t get a swelled head, He gave me the gift of a learning disability, so I would know that it is NOT on my strength but His that I can write.
I’m not sure why anyone would write who had not been called. It’s certainly not for the recognition or money. We are truly underpaid for the hundreds and thousands of hours we pour into a single book. So few people gain fame and fortune from writing. So why do we do it?
God has called us.
Whether writing is easy or hard, being obedient to God’s call to write is Worship. We have nothing. We can only give back what God has given us. He gives us the gift of writing everyday so we have a gift to give Him back in worship.
