Notes from this episode:
Remember the wonder and excitement you felt when you first realized God might be calling you to write a book? You began to prayerfully brainstorm ideas, stories, and concepts that could be woven into this book that would impact many. There was no limit to where God could take this body of work.
Over time, the book truly begins to feel like work as you face your own doubts, writer’s block, criticism, spiritual attack, and fatigue. The rose-colored glasses come off as you realize this book is going to take blood, sweat and tears to birth. Though some of that initial wonder and excitement has been dampened, you can’t shake the words you heard God whisper: “I’m inviting you to write a book that will bring glory to My name.”
In John 4:46-54, we read the story of a government official from Capernaum who found himself desperate for a miracle. His young son is dying and getting worse by the minute. He hears that a man named Jesus is within walking distance…that is, if you consider 24 miles to be walking distance.
Without hesitation, the desperate father makes his way to Cana to seek out the traveling Teacher. “Lord, please come now before my little boy dies.” You can sense the parental anguish in his voice. So many hopes and dreams for his child hang in the balance.
Can you relate to the man’s cry for help? Maybe you’ve found yourself pleading, “Lord, please come now before my book dies.”
