Have you felt overwhelmed with what it takes to write and publish a book?

In this episode of our Breakthrough series, CJ and I are going to help you as Kingdom Writers overcome this obstacle of overwhelm. What makes this series different than most training for writers is that we integrate the powerful combination of Scripture and prayer to help you breakthrough the obstacles holding you back.

Scriptures mentioned: Psalm 142: 2-3a, Psalms 142:2-3 TPT, Jonah 2:7 NLT, Luke 10:38-42

Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)

The Truth: “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28 NLT

**Encouragement From CJ**

Scripture:

“After all, who is Apollos? Who is Paul? We are only God’s servants through whom you believed the Good News. Each of us did the work the Lord gave us. I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.” 1 Corinthians 3:5-9

Each of us has a role to play as God builds the Kingdom. As we write words (books, blog posts, social media, etc) we are scattering seed out into the world without knowing exactly what will become of it. But we can trust God to make it grow in His good timing. There are other times, we’re simply used in the watering what others have already planted.

Trust God to accomplish what He desires, even when we can’t always see the fruit in visible ways.

Instrumental music used in the podcast is titled “My Loving Kindness” by Tammy Sorenson. Find out more about her music at http://tammysorenson.com
