Faith Over Fear

Please follow and like us:

Over the weekend I listened to a podcast by Ed Gandia.  In it, he discusses how to overcome procrastination as a writer.  It gave me insight into my own behavior.  I’d found myself delaying the process of writing in one form or another.   Cleaning house, running errands and having a “free day” after having written nothing at all.

I’d researched writing methods and routines, written down the suggested steps and created a routine of my own.  Complete with cute stickers from happy planner I might add.  Each time I faced a writing-related problem I stopped.  The outline wasn’t detailed enough.  Did I really know what the book was about aside from the original idea?  These were issues that plagued me and impacted my self-confidence.

This morning I read the “faith’s hall of fame” which is found in Hebrews 11 during my devotional time.  I was reminded that everyone has obstacles to overcome and that faith is part of the process in the life of a believer.  My heart’s desire is to please God and without faith, it is impossible to do so (Hebrews 11:6a).  So, what am I saying?  Belief in myself and my abilities as a future best-selling author requires faith.  Am I willing to put in the work required to do so?  You bet I am!
