For a Time to Come – Sunday Devotional


Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever . . . ~ Isaiah 30:8 KJV

Why do we writers have the need to write?

If you’re trying to be a writer, and you think it’s all fun and games on the computer, I have some news for you.

Writing is not easy. It’s a commitment you make because there are stories inside your heard and your mind that will not leave you alone until you get them out on paper.

We writers are usually very solitary creatures – our characters give us all (if not more than) the socialization that we need, though we are still aware that we’re not actually communing with real people.  And because of that, we feel the urge to leave something behind.

IF we can’t make our mark on the world now, then we’ll make certain that we’ll be able to one day – even if it’s years after we’ve left the earth.

We may write to quiet our souls, but record it for those to come.

So write. But write with Him.

The grass withereth, and the flower fadeth:
but the word of our God shall stand forever.
~ Isaiah 40:8 KJV
