Many times I mean to start something new, but procrastinate, and another opportunity is lost.
I have wanted to have a book of my work published, but until recently I could not decide which of my writing I could put together for a publisher.
Finally, I made a start on a collection of my poetry. Problems with my computer and printer caused the work to stop and start.
I have received messages that subjects like explicit sex scenes are a taboo subject in Christian romances. Can I cut out my colourful pieces to make my story acceptable to the Christian press, or try to get it published by Mills and Boon? I have to start to get this work to publishable standard.
We make a fresh start at each stage in our lives, from walking, to school days, to career, to marriage,
to retirement. The best start is when we accept Jesus as our saviour and start a new life with him to eternity.
There a number of references in the Bible to fresh beginnings or new start.
In Genesis 1.1 God made a new start when he created the world.
In Numbers 20.1 the Israelites made a fresh start when they entered the promised land.
In 2 Samuel 12.20-24 David received forgiveness and made a fresh start.
Luke 23.38 Jesus death is a beginning or new start for believers.
What is my motive for writing? Should I get this sorted before I start? Let me see?
Is it a need to be noticed and acclaimed as a writer, to help others to a greater faith, or to glorify God?
I must make a start.
