Major Morning Track #2 of 7
Find Your Words in the Father’s Presence
Jesus set the standard for writers when He said: I do not speak on my own. The Father tells me what to say and how to say it (John 12:49). Seriously? All those amazing parables (fictional short stories) that change hearts? All those authoritative teachings (non-fiction) that transform minds? All that came from an intimate listening relationship with His Father? If the “Word of God made flesh” had to find His words in His Father’s presence, how can we hope to write without a similar process? In this major morning track you will gain confidence in your co-authorship relationship with God and learn how it works in the realms of reasoning and imagination. Your writing will likely become Spirit-filled and creatively fresh. And the value-added bonus? Your prayer life will never be the same.
What questions do you have that you hope Doug will answer in the class?
