Encouraging Words for the Christian writer

YOU CAN GET BACK UP AGAIN!

Posted on 30 April, 2019 at 10:10

On a beautiful and breezy Sunday afternoon , on the 18th hole on one of the the most beautiful golf courses in the world,  Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters tournament and his 15th major title. But this was a different win for Tiger Words, for this victory was accomplished after he got back up again.


You see, Tiger Woods had fallen down. He had fallen to personal problems. He had fallen to health problems. And he had fallen to legal problems. He had even fallen to the disrespect and disdain of his colleagues and friends. But the good news is that Tiger did not allow his problems to keep him down. With a dogged determination and a heart of resilience, Tiger was able to rise back up again and win his 15th major  title.

 

It says so much about him. So much about his perserverance. So much about his willpower. For Tiger could have given up when he fell down to health and personal problems. He had enough championships under his belt . He had enough millions to retire and live comfortably for the rest of his life.


But Tiger wasn’t done. He still loved the game of golf and wanted to keep playing. So he did the hard work required to play again:  The back surgeries. The daily trips to the gym. The ice baths. The golf sessions. The gratitude training. Asking forgiveness from those he hurt - his wife, his mom, his children, his colleagues, his friends.


And today he stands. Holding another coveted trophy. All because he was willing to get back up again.

 

But Tiger isn't the only one who has fallen, because I’ve also fallen many times on my journey to write for ministry. I’ve fallen to discouragement when financial problems arose that impeded me from living out my writing calling. I’ve fallen to depression when I didn't understand why I hadn't yet achieved the success others had attained as Christian writers. I’ve fallen to procrastination when I’ve allowed other people and things to interfere with accomplishing my daily writng goals. So I'm thankful for Tiger's victory, for he reminds me that when I've fallen on my journey to write for the kingdom, I don't have to stay there. With a determined spirit, a steely focus and a continued belief in myself, I can rise back up again!


And you can too!
