Build it!: Faith for Creatives

“Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep.” ~Psalm 127:1-2  When the Lord has given you an idea to create, no matter the obstacles you may seem to face, create it. Build it! When your idea is not just a ‘good idea’ but a ‘God idea’ you can rest in confidence that no matter what, as long as you remain in faith, and diligence, keeping your eyes on Him and trusting him every step of the way then what you are building, what you are creating will reach its purposed end and be fruitful. The Lord’s purpose will be fulfilled (Isaiah 46:10-11) so take confidence in knowing that if He has placed a purpose in you, spoken a dream to you, He will bring it to pass. Just have faith, do your part through faith, and remember, always remember, to take your rest in …

Dreams Don’t Expire: Creative Motivation

Dreams don’t have an expiration date.” ~ Jesse Duplantis As long as there is still breath in your lungs and life in your heart, there is still time for you to achieve your dream. Dreams are seeds, and with all things born of seeds, they have their season to grow. The word of God says it like this, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” ~ECCLESIASTES 3:1 KJV (See vs 1-8) Maybe your dream has not yet come into its season. DON’T. GIVE. UP! There is still time. Maybe you are someone who has invested many years, along with tears, into a vision that seems to remain fruitless or blurred. Again I say, don’t give up. If you know in the center of your being that what you are aiming to do is from God, and screams to be birthed, no matter the obstacles or the detours, keep holding out in faith and keep cultivating what is inside of you. Joseph had many dreams to become a …

The Origin of Ideas & How I Capture Them: Guest Post with Simon

Welcome to this week’s edition of Wisdom From the Writer’s Journal. This week I have the pleasure of passing the ‘pen & pad’ to my blogging pal, Simon of Planet Simon. Just to get you all acquainted, Simon would like to share a bit about himself, and how you can get in contact with him. Bio: I’m Simon and I’m an engineer from the UK who’s recently found a love of writing. I write for mainly the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres. I currently have no books to my name but I’m writing short stories and perfecting my craft as I go.   I’m currently working on my first book but as this is new and I’m trying to do this right progress is slow. But I’m always having new ideas and making sure I keep them safe so that one day I can turn the seed into a great tree!

Will You Create With Me: The Hope of Future Writing Prompts

Last year, about mid-way between starting this blog and now, I started developing Writing Prompts and Exercises. For at least the last few months I have not created a single prompt, as I have been striving to get my life in order so that I can have more time working on the blog and writing my beloved novels.  As March was reborn this 2015, I found myself asking the God of Creation, what was I supposed to do now that there were no distractions to keep me from blogging. I mean yes, the simple answer is to create blogs, but I am a person who likes to “sow” and not “throw” my seed if you get what I mean? In answer to my query, Yeshua Jesus gave me the simplest answer; “Do what you did at the beginning.” What did I do at the beginning? I allowed art to bear fruit in whatever way it saw fit, but I allowed it to do so within parameters. In short, I made a deal with myself and …
