YOU ARE A WRITER by JEFF GOINS will help you fall back in love with writing and build an audience who shares your love. It's about living the dream of a life dedicated to words and it all begins with YOU.

 

Becoming a writer begins with a simple but important belief: You are a writer; you just need to write.

This was the sentence in the book, You Are a Writer by Jeff Goins that helped me believe that I could write. It was a confirmation from God so to speak because after writing for so long with little exposure I asked God the question, "Am I a writer"?

Jeff helped me to understand through his words that writing wasn't really about what I thought it was. Being a writer was not what I thought it was. I thought it was about perfection or the authors that I admired had something that I didn't.

It seems that the most important thing that they had that I had lost or forgotten was persistence and a love for writing. This book helped me get back in touch with both of these.

I have been writing since I was very young. But after I started a family and other happenings in life took over I got away from writing. But then I found some old journals that I had written when I was younger.

Some of them were filled with poems that I had written almost 20 years ago. Some of them contained prayers, devotions and just thoughts on how I was feeling about whatever was going on in my life. I believed the Lord used this to show me that I had really been writing all the time.

From this I felt compelled to write more. I started this blog and started reading more on writing. I am not perfect but as Jeff explains in this book, there isn't really good or bad writing.

I do it now for the love of writing. Obviously I am also taking steps to perfect my craft as a musician would practice before playing before people but even with that I am finally able to say that I am a writer.

As the book states, I realized that I can't not write.  

I hope this book will confirm and stir up your gift for writing as it did for me.

In You Are a Writer, Jeff Goins shares his own story of self-doubt and what it took for him to become a professional writer. He gives you practical steps to improve your writing, get published in magazines, and build a platform that puts you in charge.

This book is about what it takes to be a writer in the 21st Century. You will learn the importance of passion and discipline and how to show up every day to do the work.

Here's what else you will learn:

-How to transition from wanting to be a writer to actually being one
-What "good" writing is (and isn't)
-How to stop waiting to be picked and finally choose yourself
-What it takes to build a platform
-Why authors need to brand themselves (and how to do it)
-Tips for freelancing, guest blogging, and getting published in magazines
-Different ways to network with other writers, artists, and influencers
-The importance of blogging and social media and how to use it well to find more readers and fans of your writing

Poetry

I am sharing this poem in honor of Father's Day coming up but the wisdom of it is appropriate for anytime of the year. It also seems to be from a father to a son but I also believe the advice is good for us daughters too. I found it at www.Poetryfoundation.org. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think of it in comments. ) 

 

 If- 

By Rudyard Kipling 1865-1936 

 

If you can keep your head when all about you    

    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,    

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,  

    But make allowance for their doubting too;    

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,  

    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,  

Or being hated, don't give way to hating,  

    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:  

 
 

If you can dream-and not make dreams your master;    

    If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;    

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster  

    And treat those two impostors just the same;    

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken  

    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,  

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,  

    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:  

 
 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings  

    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,  

And lose, and start again at your beginnings  

    And never breathe a word about your loss;  

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew  

    To serve your turn long after they are gone,    

And so hold on when there is nothing in you  

    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'  

 
 

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,    

    Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch,  

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,  

    If all men count with you, but none too much;  

If you can fill the unforgiving minute  

    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,    

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,    

    And-which is more-you'll be a Man, my son!

Music

One of my favorite albums that I listen to is Mail Is.. by Mali Music. Mali has a very unique sound which makes his music even more appealing. The songs on this album speak on real life issues but it encourages you in your faith at the same time.

 

 

I began listening to Mali Music when someone recommended that I listen to the 2econd Coming album and I have been hooked since then. Mali has a very unique sound which makes his music even more appealing.

The songs on Mali Is speak on real life issues but it encourages you in your faith at the same time.  It basically speaks life into its listeners.  

I love the entire album but my favorite songs include:  

Fight for You- This song will remind you that God is fighting for you and at the same time you have to fight for yourself by staying true to who you are. Basically it addresses the fact that people will try to make you who they want you to be.  

Walking Shoes- You will love this one because it talks about that vision or dream that has not fully come to pass yet. The song will encourage you to keep walking toward that dream and not waiting for it to just happen. I have a couple of my own dreams in the works and this song definitely encourages me when I feel like giving up on God's call on my life.  

Royalty- This song will remind you of who you are in Christ, a chosen people, a royal priesthood. As Mali states in this song, "We are called out of the darkness into the marvelous light. Do you know who you are? Royalty.

Please feel free to click on the picture above or the link to preview or purchase Mali's Album. Plus you can get a taste of his sound by clicking on the video at the end of this post. 

Other Mali Music songs that I love aside from Mali Is include the entire 2econd Coming Album, the song "Go" and "Walk on Water." I had a tough time finding Go and Walk on Water but I eventually found them on Mali's Mix Tape from Amazon.

I love many more of his songs but "Mali is" seemed special. Mali personally wrote every song on the record, while ByStorm Entertainment's Mark Pitts and Wayne Barrow serve as executive producers of the project along with Kirk Lightburn as A&R.  

In addition to producing a handful of tracks himself, Mali also enlisted the production talents of the iconic Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis and D'Mile. "No Fun Alone" produced by Duplessis, begins with smoky jazz piano and bluesy guitar licks before giving way to the singer's instantly recognizable croon. Lyrically, he takes the opportunity to remind everyone, "It's no fun alone."  

On the other end of the spectrum, "Heavy Love" skates along on upbeat percussion and tasteful melodic leads punctuated by a bombastic groove of live instrumentation. 
He grabs the mic for truly pensive, passionate, and poetic bars during "Little Lady". A soulful refrain resounds as he solemnly rhymes, "Can't distinguish the laughter from the cries, bags under your eyes, so you use makeup to cover up what you cannot hide." 

 
His raps build into a thought-provoking statement declaring, "You have daughters and they have sons who have daughters and those are the ones who have the opportunity to break the curses that make their mothers buy purses with letters on them to show they're not worthless." This isn't just a cry for a change in music but in culture at large, and he's not afraid to let it out-loud. 

 
Meanwhile, the single "Beautiful" lives up to its name. Written and co-produced by Mali as well as Duplessis and Arden Altino, the track glides from an energetic verse into a heavenly refrain that instantly shines and soars-living up to its title. 

 
"This song is for those people who never stopped believing and always saw me for who I was," he reveals. "It's a letter to the ones in your life who were there when you were nothing, they were there when you became something, and they were there when you lost everything you had again. It's a tribute to everybody who helped me become who I am. They're truly beautiful, and I needed to say it." 

 
On "Ready Aim," Mali states that in the song its like anybody can fire whatever they want at me, but you can't shoot me down. This one is like a fuel injector. It gives you that boost so you know you can accomplish your dreams." 

 
Everything culminates on "I Believe". The track produced by Mali himself serves as the album's final destination, encapsulating his journey up to this point. Musically, a major piano melody entwines with a slick drum beat as Mali opens up yet again, professing "We all need faith."  The track is as unique as it is uplifting.

"I've got something I need to share," he asserts. "There's a deeper message. It's the heart of everything I do, and I want to get that to everyone possible. That's the ultimate goal."  I believe everyone with a beating heart will be able to find themselves in some part of it." "I want to inspire others to inspire," he concludes. I hope I can be the key to unlock that in somebody listening."

Bible Study

Easter reminds me of growing up in Florence, South Carolina. Easter was a big thing for us as children. Do you remember the feeling of getting those beautiful, spring colored dresses every year? Guys have to remember sitting in the barbershop all day waiting for a turn for a haircut. Boys wore sharp suits for Easter that sometimes included ties which as I recall most boys hated to wear.

Easter reminds me of growing up in Florence, South Carolina.  Easter was a big thing for us as children. Do you remember the feeling of getting those beautiful, spring colored dresses every year? Some of us got our hair done at salons which was only for special occasions. The rest of us went to a girlfriend or a family member My favorite style was candy girls.  

Guys have to remember sitting in the barbershop all day waiting for a turn for a haircut. Boys wore sharp suits for Easter that sometimes included ties which as I recall most boys hated to wear.   

We also had to prepare to get up in front of everyone at church to say our Easter speeches. My favorite one was, "I just came to say Happy Easter Day." It's obvious that it was my favorite because it was short. I was nervous every year getting up in front of everyone.  

Today many people seem to get the same feeling around Easter time. You see people shopping for spring colored dresses and suits. The hair salons and barber shops are full and parents are now running around to purchase these same things for their own children.  

Easter is also one of the busiest days of the year for churches. The pews are full of people that don't normally attend. This is a wonderful blessing. Pastors exclaim from pulpits all over the world that "Jesus has Risen." Many go and enjoy their Easter dinner afterward and wait for the excitement of next year.  

These are all beautiful traditions but before, during and after all of this is done we have to continue to remember something or even better someone.   

We have to remember the Lord.  

This seems obvious but it isn't always. Let's use this time to re-examine our lives. The Lord overcame the grave and He lives. We can overcome those things in our own lives that are dead and divert our attention to the things that add life.   

I pray that Easter and the scriptures below encourage you to make a decision today to do something new for the Lord. He has probably already put it on your heart. Solomon does a beautiful job in these verses of reminding us to remember the Lord before we are too old to give Him our best years.  

 

(Ecclesiastes 12:1-7, NIV). 

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, "I find no pleasure in them"--  

before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars grow dark, and the clouds return after the rain;  

when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men stoop, when the grinders cease because they are few, and those looking through the windows grow dim;  

when the doors to the street are closed and the sound of grinding fades; when men rise up at the sound of birds, but all their songs grow faint; 

when men are afraid of heights and of dangers in the streets; when the almond tree blossoms and the grasshopper drags himself along and desire no longer is stirred. Then man goes to his eternal home and mourners go about the streets.  

Remember him--before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well,  

and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Personal Growth

Did you know that you can start over? I guess I always knew that I could but I lost sight of it. I forgot that "another chance" is really what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. As the Christian cliché states we are not just afforded a second chance but another chance.

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone now; a new life has begun! (2 Cor, 5:17 NLT)

Did you know that you can start over?  I guess I always knew that I could but I lost sight of it. I forgot that "another chance" is really what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. As the Christian cliché states we are not just afforded a second chance but another chance.

Recently I had given up on some of my dreams or maybe I didn't really give up but I did stop. These are things that I love to do and some of them are even gifts from the Lord.  These dreams include things like school, singing and even this blog.

Why did I stop? Because they are harder to achieve than I thought, because I failed at some of them once and I failed at some of them multiple times, because I started comparing where I am with other people, and because I felt like too much time has passed already and things are just taking too long.

While I was spending time feeling sorry for myself instead of praying the enemy slipped in with some suggestions like failure means give up, failure means this is not for me and failure means these dreams are for those that are better qualified.

What was he trying to accomplish? He wanted to kill, steal and destroy what the Lord has placed in me.

The truth is I could give up and let go but my desire to do something great for God is as Jeremiah stated, like fire in my bones.

  -  But if I say I'll never mention the Lord or speak His name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It is like fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can't do it! (Jer. 20:9, NLT).

Even as I think about Easter, I think of Christ dying and how He rose again, and for what? So that we can have another chance and I have been one that has needed many, many chances.

So again I have asked for forgiveness and I am starting again.

You can start over again too. If you have had a setback or if some of your opportunities have expired, be open to new opportunities. God will open doors for you as you follow His will.

Don't lose patience in the process. As Joyce Meyer writes in her book, You Can Begin Again, "Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you've been through, it's never too late to begin again."

Some of the biblical examples of what she calls, "fresh starts" include:

-Far from his potential, wandering on the back side of the desert, Moses is called to lead a nation. Fresh Start!

-A victim of her reputation, known only as a harlot, Rahab is rescued and given a noble name in the lineage of Christ. Fresh Start!

-Stuck in a dead end job tending sheep, David is anointed to be King of Israel. Fresh Start!

-Widowed, alone, and with nowhere to go, Ruth is given a brand-new, better-than-imagined life. Fresh Start!

-Ashamed, having given in to fear and denied the Lord, Peter is forgiven and inspired to preach at the Pentecost. Fresh Start!

-Caught in a trap of dead religion, persecuting the early Christians, Paul is transformed and called to write much of the New Testament. Fresh Start!

What gifts we have as Christians-grace, mercy, forgiveness, love and the chance to start again.

 

Prayer

Father, we say thank you that we are afforded another chance. You have given us gifts that are worth more than anything we will ever be given in this lifetime. Help us to remember not to give up on the gifts that you have placed within us and Father if we fall remind us to get back up and start again. We love you.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

 

Scripture

Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up. (2 Cor. 4:1, NLT)

 

Reflection

Consider the wonderful gifts, talents and skills that Christ has given you. Thank Him and find a way to use them for His Glory.

But Lots wife looked back and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26 (NIV, 1984)
What are you leaving behind in 2013? Are you excited about the things that God is going to do through you in 2014? I pray that you are. Letting go of something that is familiar can be pretty hard.

But Lots wife looked back and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26 (NIV, 1984)

What are you leaving behind in 2013? Are you excited about the things that God is going to do through you in 2014? I pray that you are. Letting go of something that is familiar can be pretty hard. Some people experienced big changes in their lives on many levels last year. Loved ones were lost and some people walk into the New Year not feeling completely whole. Many people lost their jobs and are asking themselves what they should do now. Things use to be so familiar and comfortable.

One of the hardest things I'm letting go of is comfort. You may be thinking that comfort does not necessarily sound like a bad thing. Well in my case it is. I am addicted to comfort. 

The problem that I am having is in order to follow my dreams and walk in the calling I believe God has for me in this season of my life I have to step out and get a little uncomfortable. You see the Lord is calling me to a higher purpose. At one point I was struggling to get there because I was caught up in fear. I have always been a dreamer but I was always reluctant to take actions on my dreams.

One of my biggest dreams includes having my own business. I whispered a prayer to God when I was still working at my old job and when I got laid off He allowed it to come to pass. I don't even remember the day that I realized that I was actually walking in my dream but when I did for some reason it scared me to death.

I started looking for my comfort zone. God knows me so well that I am sure that he blocked all of my efforts to go back. He did this with Lots wife also. All she knew was destroyed so she would never be able to go back. He commanded her and all that were with her not to look back but she did and the result was she was turned to a pillar of salt.

 I thank God that the Lord did not turn me into a pillar of salt but He did understand where I was then so He used the situation as a teaching moment. He knew that if things got difficult I would look for the easier route. I would try to go back to what was familiar.

 I am not sure if I was afraid of success or more afraid of failure but I might have well have been turned into a pillar of salt because like Lot's wife I was becoming paralyzed by own fear, doubt and insecurity. I stopped moving forward.

How did I know that God was trying to teach me something in this situation? Before I lost my job at the end of 2012 and I whispered the prayer to have my own business to God employers were calling often. I had gone on several interviews and all of a sudden it all stopped.

I started working my business directly after I left my old position but then when I started getting clients fear and doubt set in. I allowed the voices of doubt to become louder in my mind than the Lord's voice. I traded in truth like, God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind for lies like, "you're not smart enough to do this so give it up now before your clients find out that you are not competent."

Like Lots' wife I began to look for what I knew. I remembered that when I worked corporate it was the supervisor's responsibility if someone had a complaint. I always knew how much my check was going to be based on a 40 hour work week.  My employer provided work for me, now I have to go out and look for work myself. What if I messed up so bad that I lost all of my clients? What if I failed?

But the Lord has blessed me to know that my reluctance to chase after my calling was not just about not wanting to get out of my comfort zone but it was more so about fear and a lack of trust in God and His love for me. It was like saying that I thought the Lord would give me gifts but not give me what I needed to operate in them.

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29 (NKJV)

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.  I John 4:18 (NKJV)

My fears and doubts were tormenting me and keeping me from the blessings that God had for me.

So going into 2014 I can't look back. I am leaving behind fear, past failures, doubt and anything else that keeps me from following my dreams and operating in my gifts. I pray that you will join me.

 

Prayer:

Father, we thank you so much that you have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Help us to walk in the power that you have given us. Help us to depend on your love that will help us keep a sound mind when things become challenging as we pursue our callings. We will not run away from our gifts but we will work toward them giving you glory in everything we do. In Jesus Name, Amen.

 

Reflection:

So what about you? What are you leaving behind in 2013? What dreams and purpose has the Lord given you to focus on in 2014? Say a prayer asking God for direction for your purpose and the courage to pursue them. I would love to hear what dreams the Lord has placed in your heart for 2014 or if you have already realized your dream you can leave a comment to encourage others. You can also join the conversation on Facebook.

Scriptures:

Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Ephesians 4:1 (NLT)

What I love about this book, You're Going To Be Okay, and the author, Holley Gerth, is that it speaks life into the reader and any situation the reader may be going through. Holley is an encourager and her gift of encouragement pours out onto the pages of this book.

 


 

There is so much negative information readily available everywhere.  We consistently hear about the decline of the economy, job loss, foreclosures, school shootings and the list goes on and on. The news tells us that all over the world hurting people are hurting people.

What I love about this book, You're Going To Be Okay, is that it speaks life into the reader and any situation the reader may be going through. Holley is an encourager and her gift of encouragement pours out onto the pages of this book.

Books like this one give us hope that although terrible things are happening in the world and at times terrible things are happening to us, sometimes we just need to hear that in the midst of it all we are going to be okay.

This book says this to its reader using scripture references along with inspiring wisdom from Holley. Then along with the positive messages there are questions that offer self-reflection.

You get the feeling that you are sitting with a friend that is reminding you that there is always hope.

The book is offered in paperback format and on Amazon Kindle.

You can also find out more information and connect with Holley at HolleyGerth.com.

Hard days, we all have them. Because every one of us is different we all need different things that help us get through tough days.
Some people need quiet time while others may need to feed off the energy of a crowd. Some of us may rely on food or shopping to try and preoccupy us from whatever has happened.
Ultimately, most of us hope that at some point we will talk to someone that cares enough about us to encourage or comfort us through their words.

What My Heart Needs to Hear on the Hard Days

By: Ann

Hard days, we all have them. Because every one of us is different we all need different things that help us get through tough days.

Some people need quiet time while others may need to feed off the energy of a crowd. Some of us may rely on food or shopping to try and preoccupy us from whatever has happened.

Ultimately, most of us hope that at some point we will talk to someone that cares enough about us to encourage or comfort us through their words.

As an encourager it brings me great joy to make people smile or feel better if they are feeling down. Ironically, I found that when I had hard days myself instead of being understanding or encouraging I use to belittle myself in my own mind. Furthermore, I had trouble believing and receiving compliments or uplifting words from other people.

What was this? I could believe great things about other people but not believe great things about myself? How could this be?

I poured my heart out to the Lord about this issue and He revealed to me that I somehow thought that as an encourager I should be able to handle hard days better than others which unknowingly unsurfaced the sin of pride and a weak self-worth.

So now on the hard days I need to hear that …….

I don't have to compare myself by what I think I should be, by what I think I should feel or how I compare to other people.

2 Corinthians 10:12, "We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise". (NIV)

I need to hear that…

I am not a mistake. God made me and loves me just the way I am.

Psalm 139:14, "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful and I know that full well." (NIV)

I need to hear that…

Regardless of how I may feel that I have messed up or failed badly, and maybe sometimes I have, God's love for me is still and will always be unfailing.

Proverbs 19:22a, "What a person desires is unfailing love." (NIV)

What about you? What do you need to hear most on the hard days? Remember, God is waiting to uplift your heart. Nobody knows what you need better than him. Not even you.

Prayer

Father, thank you for your comfort and love on hard days. Thank you that we do not have to be overtaken by difficult circumstances or difficult days because we have you. You are our ultimate comforter in any and all situations.  We love you always. In Jesus Name, Amen.

In order to release the hold that fear has on us we have to saturate ourselves in God's love.  Here are scriptures for you to meditate on when fear tries to overtake you. I have also included books on fear. I pray that these resources will help you to conquer fear in any and all areas of your life. I also pray that you will be filled with Godly courage to fulfill your dreams.  

The Lord is the remedy for a fearful heart.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all of my fears (Psalm 34:4).

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you (I Peter 5:7).

Focus on what is real and true, not the fear.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things ( Philippians 4:8).

The Lord is with us in every situation we face.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10).

If there is a problem with fear, there is a love problem as well.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love (I John 4:18).

For when there is a fear of the future.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34).

When you fear the past.

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland (Isaiah 43:18-19).

When you fear that there will be no protection.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (Psalm 91:4).
