Don’t be impatient for the Lord to act. Travel steadily along his path. Psalms 37:34, NLT
School is out and vacation season has officially arrived. Many of us will now pack our suitcases and travel to various destinations for a fun-filled vacation. Whether our travels are on a road trip from one state to another or in the air flying to our favorite vacation destination, this is the time to wind down from our hectic, harried lives and enjoy time just doing nothing.
But sometimes our travel plans don’t go as we expect. Flights are postponed, turbulence occurs and cars break down on the road. But in spite of the challenges that occur along the way, with a sense of determination we finally make it to our desired destination.
Like vacation travels, your plans to write for publication will not always go as planned. You may plan to committ to a certain amount of time writing every day, yet your time gets eaten up by other obligatons. You may plan to complete a writing project by a certain date, yet you find it's still unfinished when the date rolls around. You may plan to submit something you've written to a designated market, yet the fear of rejection keeps you from moving forward.
Like the desired vacation destination you're determined to reach during your summer travels, don't give up on the travel plans you have made to write for publication, no matter what challenges you encounter along the way. Keep planning your writing time. Keep working on your manuscript until it's completed. Keep submitting your writings for publication. Keep traveling along the path God has laid out for you as His Christian writer, until you finally arrive at your desired destination.
