Faith Building Fridays: Write!

Oh, that my words were written!
Oh, that they were printed in a book!
-Job 19:23, KJV

How many of us have words burning in our hearts but never get them written down? Let’s start writing today. We can start small. We can make it our goal to write one page each day, for five days each week. If we write one page a day for one month, after just a month and a half, we’ll have the first draft of a 32-page picture book. If we write one page a day for one year, by the end of the year we’ll have the first draft of a 260-page full-length book. Let’s start writing! Today!

Dear God, please show me how I can rearrange my schedule each day to just write one page. Give me the strength to continue writing one page tomorrow…and the next until finally, the words of the book You are calling me to write will be written down. Then I will place them in Your hands to be published. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

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!


  1. Thanks for the inspiration, Nancy! It’s great to think about my writing in manageable chunks.
