Encouragement for the Writing Road:

" 'Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.' Then why ask? The idea of prayer is not in order to get answers from God; prayer is perfect and complete oneness with God." --Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, August 6

O soul, He only who created thee can satisfy thee. If thou ask for anything else, it is thy misfortune, for He alone who made thee in His image can satisfy thee. -- Augustine

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: (Written by Tricia Goyer in August 1997...I found this while researching MYSELF for the new book I'm writing)

"Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." John 15: 4&5

As writers we work with something called motivation. As Christian writers we all hope that our motivation is God-inspired. Too thin is the line between self-motivation and Godly motivation. How do we know if we are on the right track? We may write, we may write well, but only with God will produce fruit--fruit that will nourish the body of believers. "If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit." Fellow writers I pray that you may seek God's face and be fruitful today!
