Faith Building Fridays: Quiet Words


The quiet words of a wise person
are better than the shouts of a foolish king.
A wise person can overcome weapons of war.
-Ecclesiastes 9:17-18a, NLT

A writer’s life is often solitary and alone. Countless hours of quiet reflection are spent at the computer, perfecting our craft. How wonderful it is to know that the words we write can be more effective than the mightiest sword.

Thank You, Lord, for this reminder that the time we spend alone at our computer is a valuable and precious time. Please give us wisdom so that the words we write will overcome Satan’s weapons of war. In Jesus’s name. Amen.


For more faith-building encouragement as a writer, visit my site, Scribes.

Scribes: Devotions for Christian Writers is available at Amazon. What a great gift of encouragement for you to have to start a brand new year as a writer! Add it to your Christmas wish list today.


  1. Thank you, Nancy. You have a way of helping me keep my focus on writing for the Glory of God.
    Merry Christmas to you.
