It used to be, that I produced 3 writings a week, the 3rd one being an audio and video production. Back then, 3 years ago, not many were listening, but I wrote because I was called to do so. If only one person is blessed, I thought to myself, that is worth it. Then God brought an audience and instead of increasing, my writings dwindled to twice a week, and then crawled to one letter a week. Today, it hovers around one letter every two weeks. Irrespective of, I keep producing. Even if my writing stalls to one letter a month, I keep moving forward why? Because of a call.
Growth Births Setbacks
Jesus experienced the death of John the baptist, a major setback for him. He had people disbelieve him, especially those from his city, those that grew up with him. The Church leaders rejected him. Even his own disciples finally ran away, with Peter denying him. All these happening as His following increased. Yet one thing consistent about Jesus was that He kept moving forward. His eyes were firmly planted on His call. As your own audience grows, you will find yourself spending more time taking care of the needs of others on a one-to-one basis. Certain setbacks will emerge but these would be drowned by your call. Your call is the standard the Lord raises up against the devil when he comes in like a flood. This is the tough part, but keep moving forward – you must.
Keep Moving Forward
Martin Luther King said, “…If you can’t run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward”. Eventually, God will send the right person/ people to help you lift this bucket of water unto your head, if you keep moving forward. He will find a way to make a way for you. One thing is for sure, you will accomplish that which He ordained for you. Your responsibility to your call is to keep moving forward. Don’t ever give up. So you fell down yesterday? Get back up again, and again, and again. Your victory is assured because of Him who called you to His glorious light. Keep moving forward.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not – Galatians 6:9
