This message is a lesson from the garden. It's a lesson on cultivating your gift.
Lessons are all around us.
The question is, Are we listening or paying attention to what is being taught?
We have a small garden. Our garden has grape tomatoes, peppers, and jalepenoes.
I noticed a number of tomatoes were ripe. Some were on the verge of bursing. A few fell off the vine.
I grabbed a plastic container and some garden gloves. It was time to pick the ones that were ripe. It was at this point God began to speak.
Are you a kingdom writer? In this post I'll share five characteristics of a kingdom writer.
But first, I'll begin by answering what is a kingdom writer?
Kingdom writers are inkhorn writers, scribes, creatives, and ordinary people called to build the kingdom of God by publishing words that impact lives.
Kingdom writers are co-creators with God (Matthew 6:33) in their discipleship, educating, and sharing Father’s heart to the world through the written word.
I am sure some may ask, but isn't the kingdom and Christian writer the same?
Yes and no.
To get more done change is required.
Begin by determining your priorities then work toward accomplishing them.
I think about when I wanted to write a book.
Years went by before it was finally published. What was the problem? Why did it take so long?
After all, it wasn't like I didn't want to write a book. I did, but I found out how quickly life can get in the way.
And if it wasn't life, I found myself struggling to get the motivation I needed to do the dang thing.
It wasn't until I acknowledged that life happens. Life didn't stop because I wanted to write a book. I had to learn how to press through the obstacles.
I had to realize that "want" and "desire" gets nothing done.
To get more done I had to change what I was doing. So I did.
