Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
I'm fascinated by the soldiers assigned to stand guard at Buckingham Palace to protect the queen and her family. For in spite of the many distractions and other annoyances they encounter from tourists, sightseers, pests, and the weather, they never allow their distractions to deter them from their assignment to protect the queen.
Like the guards at Buckingham Palace, you have been given an important assignment - to stand guard of your writing time. For if you have been called to write for ministry, the time spent writing is work God has assigned you to do for Him. Time where you'll write to offer inspiration, information, hope, encouragement, comfort, and healing.
But watch out! For just as the guards at Buckingham Palace are bombarded with distractions to keep them from their duty to protect the queen, you'll be bombarded with distractions designed to keep you from writing. How can you overcome these distractions?
By tapping into your power within. For just as the soldier taps into the inner discipline he has acquired through his soldier training, you have an inner power given to you when you became a Christian to help you overcome any distraction you face. Need helping staying focused? Tap into your inner power? Need help saying no? Tap into your inner power? Need help finishing a writing project? Tap into your inner power.
The soldier's job is to ensure he does not disappoint the Queen by giving in to the distractions he encounters daily as he stands guard. Let's take our jobs as Christian writers just as seriously for the kingdom work we have been assigned to do and continue to stand guard of our writing time.
How are you tapping into your inner power today to stand guard of your writing time? Post your comments on my blog. I enjoy engaging with you on your writing journey!
