Episode Info

Episode Info: Join us in this episode as CJ and Shelley pray for you to have a breakthrough in your writing in the following 15 areas of resistance that Christian writers face. Note: To interact with us on this training and comment, watch this episode here: Introduction TIMESTAMP - 7:33 1.) Self-doubt/unworthiness: Am I qualified? Who am I? What do I have to share that people want to hear? Scripture: Psalm 94:16-19, 2 Corinthians 4:7 TIMESTAMP - 15:28 2.) Comparison: It’s already been done. How is what I’m writing any different than what’s already been written? Looking at bestsellers and seeing that as what a book is supposed to be, what my book should be. Scripture: Galatians 6:4-5, Hebrews 12:2 TIMESTAMP - 20:28 3.) Fear: Fear of sharing my story. Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:7-8, Revelation 12:11 TIMESTAMP - 26:07 4.) People-pleasing: Fear of what others will think. Afraid of criticism and being judged. Scripture: Galatians 1:10 TIMESTAMP - 32:07 5.) Insecurity: Is my writing good enough? Do I have what it takes? Do I have the skills I need to be a writer? Scripture: 1 John 4:18, John 13:23 (NKJV) TIMESTAMP - 36:41 6.) Procrastination: I need to learn more. I’m not ready yet. Scripture: Proverbs 3:5-6 TIMESTAMP - 42:49 7.) Perfectionism: My first draft needs to be perfect. Paralysis of analysis. Scripture: Ecclesiastes 11:4 TIMESTAMP - 47:22 8.) Lack of boundaries: I don’t have the time. Scripture: Matthew 6:33, Ephesians 5:15-17 TIMESTAMP - 54:20 9.) Writers' block: I’m stuck and nothing flows. Scripture: Psalm 45:1 (NIV) TIMESTAMP - 1:00:08 10.) Regret: I missed my chance. I feel behind. Scripture: Philippians 3:13, John 1:9 TIMESTAMP - 1:06:56 11.) Shame: If my book doesn’t become a bestseller, I’m a failure. Scripture: Romans 8:1, Proverbs 24:16 TIMESTAMP - 1:10:54 12.) Overwhelm: I feel overwhelmed with what it takes to self-publish my book. Scripture: Isaiah 41:10 TIMESTAMP - 1:16:39 13.) Scarcity: I don’t have the money to invest in writing and publishing a book. Scripture: Psalm 50:10-11 TIMESTAMP - 1:21:48 14.) Distraction: I have so many ideas, it’s hard to focus or know where to start first. Scripture: Isaiah 30:21 TIMESTAMP - 1:26:46 15.) Physical pain (health issues): I can’t concentrate on my book because I’m in pain.
