I published my first ebook recently, and I couldn’t be any happier.
While I’m not suggesting anyone should write a book just for the sake of it. But I do think everyone has a book inside of them waiting to be published. Why did I say that? I say that because everyone has their own thoughts, beliefs, and passion unique to them. We all have specific thoughts about one subject or the other deposited in us, shaped by experience and knowledge; they are peculiar to every individual. Likewise, our spiritual life experience and testimonies could be put into a book so as to make an impact in the life of others.
Bind up this testimony of warning and seal up God’s instruction among my disciples. Isa 8:16 (NIV)
In life, I can say we can all be categorised into three groups. You either write a book (be an author) or read other people’s books (Reader), or books (or articles) written about you (Biography/Obituary/Eulogy etc.). We all fall into at least one of these categories. If you don’t write books, someday a book will be written about you, in life or death. But we all have equal opportunities to belong to all the categories. Authors of books may die, but their books don’t…… still blesses others even when they are gone. It is like the blood of Abel speaking after his death(Heb 12:24b) or like, Elisha dead bones revived a dead man (2Kings 13:21) It means you are not only a blessing while alive…. also doing same in death. Think of Smith Wigglesworth, Arch Bishop Idahosa, Myles Munroe to mention but a few. They are no more, but their works go on.
We will not hide [them] from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.(Psalm 78:4KJV)
Writing my book was a thought I have been nursing more than a decade. I couldn’t just ooze out the strong will to make it happen. Within me, I knew one day I would write. But how is going to happen, I am not sure. This is the struggle I have lived with during those years. But thanks be to God, I got inspired last year, and I made it one of my goals for this year.
This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you.(Jer 30:2 NIV)
My goal was to publish a printed edition. In fact, I had written close to 8,000 words on a separate subject up till around April this year 2017, before the thought of writing an ebook overrode me. In other to accomplish that I made a commitment to write a few words every day as inspired. Here we are today, I have my delightful book being read across the globe.
If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything
To write a book, you must have motivation and passion for something.
It might be something that might help others to overcome what God has helped you to overcome. It might be to raise your voice against ungodliness in the society. It is you alone that can figure this out. It is a thought unique to you. Our testimonies, knowledge and experience with God are uniquely different.
Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (2Cor1:4NIV)
Writing a book is a step by step process. It might take months or years to get it done. But in as much as you can put your thought together, and daily devote a fraction of your time to write something down, you’ll eventually get it done. On my book titled,“HOW TO LIVE A PERFECT LIFE IN CHRIST’‘. My motivation erupted out of curiosity. I wanted to know, how would anyone make it to heaven if people always say, ”no one is perfect?” How would God require us to be perfect, if we can never be? I just don’t get it. How then can we qualify for Heaven?. I need an answer to all these…..because I want to make Heaven; I was desperate to know what God is looking for in a Man. Also, how a Man would be sure he’s on the right track to Heaven. The totality of my book concept is founded on that premise.
Those who heard this said, “Then who in the world can be saved? (Luke 18:26NLT)
I feel satisfied when my book was completed. Who wouldn’t be? At least I was able to empty my chest, knowing full well that I don’t want to die and be buried with that thought without sharing it with the public. One thing is sure, after death, your book will still be talking and blessing people. For me, that is a legacy we all deserved! I hope I have been able to inspire you one way or the other. If that is yes, I am looking forward to reading your book soon!
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, this is the right time to do so. You are not reading this post by accident.
You only need to confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour;
do so prayerfully and with the depth of your heart. In other to do that please click here ⇐
