Daily Verse: “Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits will have plenty of poverty.” Prov. 28:19

“You need a process,” Ron said when I started writing. I needed to develop a routine I could easily repeat to write daily devotionals. Every year, I tweak the process, changing it slightly, and then for the next 365 days, I do it repeatedly. Diligence over the past five years helped me complete several books and begin an online and in-person presence that continues to grow. Praise God!
Since I began my writing career, people tell me all the time they want to write as well, that they have a story to share. But they haven’t written anything yet. People like to talk about writing, but they don’t do it. To become a writer, one must write.
No matter the job, you must do it to receive the reward; not working means not eating. We must teach people to fish, not do the fishing for them.
Lord, forgive us for our laziness. Please help us apply ourselves to the work You give us. Let us become diligent in completing our divine tasks day after day. Allow us to reap the reward for the work we do. IJNIP. Amen
