It’s exciting to know that there are many Bible verses that can keep you focused and grounded as you write your story and testimony. It’s also exciting to know that you get to choose which ones align and work best for you.
In this blog post, I will be sharing 4 encouraging Bible verses for Female Writers that have worked for me as I have written parts of my story and testimony.
The first one is Esther 4:14: “For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?” (Amplified Bible, Joyce Meyers) I love this Bible Verse and even have an entire blog on this. (click here to read) This Bible verse is a good reminder that this is your time and this is your season to show up, not only for yourself but for those that you are meant to impact as well. This is your “such a time as this.”
The second one is Mark 4:27: “…and he goes to bed at night and gets up every day, and [in the meantime] the seed sprouts and grows; how [it does this], he does not know.” (Amplified Bible, Joyce Meyers) This is probably one of my favorite Bible verses that reminds me to take action and then allow everything else to fall into place. With this Bible verse, it is important to remember to follow your writing schedule, and as you stay consistent watch your daily actions turn into chapters, your manuscript, and then your published book.
The third one is Ephesians 6:7: “Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” (NLT) This Bible verse is a good reminder for you to not let other people's voices or opinions distract you from what you know you are supposed to be doing with your writing and your story. Sometimes it’s easy to be distracted by all of the outside noise which can prolong the launch of your book. And we all know that focus is key as you write!
The fourth one is 1 Peter 4: 10. “Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faith-fully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor.]” (Amplified Bible, Joyce Meyers) This verse reminds you to use your gift. Each one of us has gift(s) and it is important that we embrace and use our gift(s). I know firsthand that it’s not always easy to use whatever gift you have been blessed with, but take it one step at a time, and in this case, one word at a time, trusting that everything is working out as you share your story with others to create greater impact.
As I close out this blog post, I encourage you to find 3-4 Bible verses that align with your book goals. You can use the ones that I provided or mix and match. This will help you stay encouraged and motivated as you write!
