Writing: Motivation

It has been a few months since I have written anything on this blog. With all that is going on in the wider world outside my relatively quiet corner, I am still bothered by it all. I try not to look at the news very often, but out of the corner of my eye, I know that there is immense suffering and it pains me to have to accept the truth that true evil does indeed exist.

But, God is on his throne and has always been, is right now on his throne, and will forever be on his throne. He will defeat evil; God always wins. I ask that you all join me in prayer for all the suffering souls at this very moment in every corner of this world. May God surround his children and protect them and give each one peace and assurance that he will deliver them from evil.

Sometimes in the chaos and suffering of this life we lose our motivation; fear distracts us, stuns us into inaction. Anxiety robs us of our hope.

But, God is our hope. We hope in Our Lord. We trust in his protection. He is our refuge, just as the psalms assure us. Mortal man is just mortal man. God is the ruler of the universe and he alone is King.

It is difficult in the darkness to remember that God is that light at the end of the abyss. In fact, he is the light that shines through each darkened corner in which we might cower out of fear. God is our light and he alone is our salvation.

Let’s pray for each other without ceasing. Let’s lift each other up. Let’s motivate each other with our words and our actions.

As writers, let’s make each word we write give hope to our hurting world. With our words, let’s inspire, let’s remind people that this world is a beautiful place and that evil will never win. With our words, let’s create beauty and hold tight to all that is true and give a voice to the voiceless among us.

May God bless us, protect us, and keep us safe from all evil.

I am a published poet and short story writer. I have been published in SNHU's the penmen review. https://penmenreview.com/author/jenny-andrews is the link where you can find my poetry and a short story. Previously, I self-published my novel "Bully Another Day," "Short Stories and Vignettes", and a poetry book "Spaces between the Pause" on Amazon/Kindle. Due to abysmal interest in my self-publishing venture, I have unpublished those three projects, as well as my poetry book "Life at the End of the Rainbow." However, I plan to be more aggressive in trying to find a traditional publisher for these projects.

  1. Yes, ma’am!!!! It hurts so much to see the pain in the world. I can only imagine how much God’s heart pains to see his children hurting too. We have to be the light, the hope, and the joy for others.
    I have been wondering if you are doing ok. I appreciate you sharing this reminder for all of us to intercede without ceasing.
    Stay strong, warrior Jenny!


  2. Lovely post. I sometimes think of words as a way of bettering the world too, and that helps me keep going than if I were to hold onto selfish reasons to write. Thanks for this post!


  3. The world is a scary place, and you have the right answer to that in your post too. I hope and pray that you and everyone else that is hurting in this vale of tears can have peace of mind, body, and soul–the peace that Jesus gives.

    [Jesus said,] “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
    John 16:33
