Writers deal with deadlines. They normally keep to writing schedules. These past few weeks, I’ve learned a key spiritual lesson: When God delays your schedule or thwarts your writing plan, it’s because He’s teaching something you need for the writing.
If you’ve been following along, you know it’s a season of surgeries and recoveries for me. In that time of not writing, I experienced a key moment just a few days ago involving a conversation with a student that I would then write about to shape a chapter.
Not writing means learning. Not writing means experiencing. Not writing means growing into the writing.
Do not despair! If your schedule has been interrupted and you’re not writing like you want to, remember how God wants you to hold on for a while.
