Writing Interruptions: Handling the Holidays

“Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time. Ephesians 5:15-16a” One of the biggest interruptions I deal with lasts over two months, is tons of fun, often is full of sweet family memories, and always plays havoc with my entire schedule – starting with […]

Purpose-full Interruptions

But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, at an acceptable time; O God, in the greatness of Your lovingkindness, Answer me with Your saving truth. Psalm 69:13 One of my grandkids had a major writing project and it was really stressing her out. She felt so frustrated and “stuck!” We worked […]

Interruptions Teach Us To Wait On The Lord

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.

Great Advice for Interrupted Writers in Romans

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

God’s Plans Aren’t Changed By Interruptions!

I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Romans 8:38 (NLT) I was headed out of town to visit family […]

Writing Interruptions are Not Wasted!

Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore , take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having […]

Thoughts on Passion

It’s a popular perception of writers, based at least a bit in reality, that we tend toward the eccentric. Maybe even a little obsessive. We’re known for things like keeping odd hours and stashing pens and paper in the car or on the nightstand; for saying things like “That’d make a great story,” or “I […]

How to Be Outstanding

“Dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. … to the extent that God has blessed you. … because a door of great opportunity stands wide open for me, but there are many opponents. […]

Peace in the Waiting

“I’m confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in me will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Phil. 1:6) Sometimes waiting is not about being denied what we want, it’s about molding, and shaping us into who God wants us to be. Doesn’t make it an easier, […]
