Hope for the Future of Writing

It has not been an easy last few weeks, to be honest. Personally and corporately, tough times can come and go. I was given an encouraging and timely word yesterday from one of the YouTubers I watch, who said something to the effect of “You’re still here; God has a purpose for you; don’t give up.” “For God gave us not a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7.) Just let that sink in.

As one can see through my blog posts, I am a Christian, which means that I confess that Jesus is Lord, and He is my Lord and Savior. There is no one and nothing else that can save me from my sin and make me clean in God’s presence. It is a truth I have been growing in for years.

I am aware that should the current climate persist, I will not be allowed to write books from my worldview in the future. I will not have the freedom of speech or religion, because I will have to only say what is allowed to be said and believed. I am aware that the current power that is attempting to increase its reign over the United States and the world hates Christians and aims to get rid of them, frankly. Many people may think this is a ludicrous statement, but many also know this to be true.

Even so, I have absolute confidence that we will see a better future to come, a future where I and others will be able to be free. This doesn’t just apply to Christians, but to everyone. Do you know what I mean? How do I know that the future looks so bright? It is a matter of faith and discernment. I know that God has sent encouraging voices to me to show me that there is a hope and a future, and should we perish, heaven is not a place where I would want to leave. But there is work to do and things to be done. Lord’s will be done.
