There comes a time when you have to stop wishing for things to happen and just do what you can to make it happen. I am all for the Lord being sovereign in everything we do. However, there is the ‘me’ factor involved.
With that being said, last week on my FB profile I shared my vision for the Write Stuff. Here it is.
The mission of The Write Stuff Radio Show is to present and showcase Christian authors worldwide. To provide an outlet for Christian fiction and nonfiction to find a place in a reader’s heart. To be the premiere choice for authors who want to showcase their works to a growing audience.
Why did it take so long to get a mission statement? To be honest, I’m not sure. But, as the old, tired, but true cliche goes, ‘Better late than never’.
I recently read an article about Octavia Butler and how she wrote her aspirations of what she wanted her writing career to look like. The title of the article said says she wrote her career into existence. What struck me more about the article was that even though she wrote what she wanted, she gave herself a directive — So be it, See to it!
It had been on my mind for some time to come up with a mission statement for what I wanted to do with the show for some time. When I articulated my thoughts, I’d no idea I would be struck by Butler’s words a few days later.
So with that in mind, let me say this: whatever it is you want to do in life, see to it.
