I just returned from the second round of interviews for a new job. Yeah, I'm still breathing.I prayed a ton before I left my home and then asked God to take over for me.
Do you do the same with your writing?
I know I'm guilty. I try to force the words to come. Writing paragraphs that don't move the story at all. Writing whole scenes that have little to do with anything.
Same way with blog writing. The pressure, you know. The pressure to write when God hasn't given me anything at all. Like the pressure to get this all-important job because it will mean my life might go back to normal.
My husband's last words to me this morning, "Relax and just do your best."
Some wise words. Words we can also apply to our writing.
If we pray and ask God to give us what he would have us write--I think we'll all find our words will come out easier.He'll show us what we need to share. He'll show me where I need to work.
I'm trusting Him today with my future as an employed person and as a writer.
