“If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23
There are times I lack confidence, when I explain my views to others? I make a lot of rewrites , creating a greater lack of confidence in the worth of my writing. God doesn’t want me writing under those conditions God wants strength in my words. I don’t always remember He will help me put conviction in my writing. He wants me to believe in what I am writing. If I don’t believe in my myself or my opinions enough to convince others, how can he support me? I have to do my part by believing and he will guide my words and convictions.
If you have this problem in your writing life, remember you have your own private editor. If you feel you are being prompted to edit your words, do so. Be led by the spirit. It will never fail you. Don’t write by countering another’s opinion, to back up your opinion. If we are confident in our beliefs, we won’t feel the need defend them or convince others. Our opinion should stand on its merit. Some people will never believe in what we say, but that’s okay. Give people time to hear the message, time to think and time to understand
Lord, help us believe you will guide our words. Please give us the confidence in our words and be our guide.
