Stepping into 2016 with Boldness
I'd been considering what word to focus on in 2016 for a few weeks when I came across this scripture.
"In Him we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him." Ephesians 3:12
I've devoted a lot of time to writing and studying the craft of writing the last few years. I even worked up the courage to attend a couple of conferences, but I've begun to wonder if I'm doing enough. As I contemplated this verse I questioned if I'm stepping out enough with boldness. The stories I write are Christian fiction.
I want my stories to honor him, and they won't honor him if they don't get published. Every time I write a story, I learn more. So what's the next step? I'm not sure, but my hope is in God. As I humbly wait on him, I pray to be bold when he presents an opportunity to present my stories to the right person.
What about you? Are you boldly proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ? I'd love to hear your story.
