Faith Building Fridays: Your Shepherd

I have not run away from being your shepherd.
-Jeremiah 17:16, NIV

Being a writer is like being a shepherd. Through the words we write, we guide and encourage and care for God’s sheep. Yet some days, we don’t feel like writing. We want to run off and do other things. On days like this, even if we don’t “feel” like it, let’s renew our commitment to write for God. Let’s sit down at our computer and fasten our seatbelt so we stay there and work on the manuscript He is calling us to write. Then we, too, can echo Jeremiah’s words and experience renewed joy and purpose.

Dear God, strengthen me to complete the tasks You call me to do as Your scribe. Give me purpose, direction, and a tender heart for Your sheep. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


  1. Thank you Nancy for sharing this encouraging post!

    • You’re welcome! I pray you will be energized with God’s purpose for you as His scribe.
