An online devotional for writers
The Lord your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little. You will not clear them away all at once, (Deuteronomy 7:22, NLT)
You don’t need to become a writer all at once. It’s a process. You acquire one new writing skill at a time.
This “little by little” principle is woven throughout scripture. For instance, when the Hebrew people prepared to take the Promised Land, God’s instructions were clear:
Each of the seven occupying nations were larger and more powerful than Israel. The Hebrew people easily could have been overwhelmed by the enormity of the task.
Yet God graciously explained that conquering the Promised Land would be a process. He would help the Hebrews drive out the nations little by little, one at a time.
Writing skills are like that. The task seems enormous.
Yet God helps you acquire skills little by little. You learn to write a headline … a hook … a story … a call to action … a book proposal … a chapter of a book …
One at a time.
Becoming a writer is a process. Acquired one skill at a time.
Becoming a writer is a process Acquire one new writing skill at a time.
You are in the middle of my overwhelm. Thank you for the reminder that I don’t need to instantaneously become a writer. I can do it little by little, one skill at a time. Help me to be persistent and consistent.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
