Sometimes, people feel bad if they're not publishing novels or other types of books. For many years, God didn't make writing books part of His plan for me. Yet during that time God used me in other types of writing ministry.
This morning's My Utmost for His Highest reading is one of my favorites. Here's a quote from it:
"We have the idea that we can dedicate our gifts to God. However, you cannot dedicate what is not yours. There is actually only one thing you can dedicate to God, and that is your right to yourself (see Romans 12:1). If you will give God your right to yourself, He will make a holy experiment out of you—and His experiments always succeed. The one true mark of a saint of God is the inner creativity that flows from being totally surrendered to Jesus Christ." (Oswald Chambers, June 13.)
For YEARS God gave me many other writing assignments that had nothing to do with fiction. You can read about them on my website (Under "For Writers.")
What about you? Yes, do whatever God lays on you're heart. After all, His holy experiments ALWAYS succeed!
