In Times Of Drought

IM000018.JPG“The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.”  Isaiah 58:11

Writers go through times of drought. We’ve written something we think is good, but we can’t find anyone who will publish it. Or, if we go the self-publishing route no one is buying it.

Another drought for writers is what we term as “writers’ block”. We sit down to write and our fingers don’t move. We can’t think of anything to write no matter how hard we try. We stare at the blank page which is glaring back at us.

As a writer have you experienced a time of drought? You have a deadline to meet and all you have is an untouched page or computer screen. Your book is published, but sales aren’t coming in as you thought they would. Step away from your computer or paper and pen. Spend some quiet time with God. Empty your mind of deadlines. Don’t dwell on not making sales. Forget about finding the words to put on the page. Focus on God. Bring your worries to Him. He is there to help no matter the circumstance.

God knows what He wants you to write and He’ll get your writing to the audience who needs to read it. He will give you what you need and your spring of water will overflow. He will lift you out of the drought. When you empty your mind and let God fill it results will happen.

Trust Him. Ideas will flow. People will read what you write. God provides the strength. Let Him refresh your mind and fill your soul.
