Wednesday Wisdom – WORK

work

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…” —Ephesians 3:20 (NKJV) 


This verse plays through my mind while working against a deadline this month. Like a potter at his wheel or a painter standing before a blank canvas, when we’re creating, there’s hope for a spark to do more with what we have than we thought possible.

For someone who sits at a writing desk, this verse reminds me the art of creation is more than choosing a paint color or adding water to clay. Creation is just plain hard work. (Sorry if that’s unromantic, but it’s true.)

Day in, day out. In the middle of the night.

Practice. Edit.

Learn and try again


I’m nearing the end of the journey for the first draft of my latest book.

At the end of the month, I’ll sit back, click the Send button on an email, and pray, pray, pray that my editor sees some promise in the creation I share. But that’s the magic — creation is the culmination of failure and triumphs, resilience and hope… but it’s never done alone.

Wherever we’re called, it’s a great comfort that we don’t create in a vacuum. God takes the clay and the paint, or the search for words, and He puts His touch to it. He does more than we thought imaginable.

Spin the wheel, paint the strokes, or pen the words today — but whatever the calling, know that we’re not alone in the work. The Master is creating abundance with us. For us. IN us. And that’s far more beautiful a creation (you and me!) than we could ever fashion alone. So create.

Work in peace today — you’re in the Potter’s hands. 🙂

  1. Love that verse and love your writing Kristy Cambron. It’s like the book by Allen Arnold the Story of With–everything is more beautiful if done with Him!

  2. Such a great post, Kristy!! Thank you for the reminder and the encouragement! I feel like I’ll never finish editing and revising this manuscript for it to be publishable. I can’t put it aside though. I know it’s the story I’m supposed to write. It’s just hard when you wish you had more time (when you work an overtime full time job), more skill (trying not to compare yourself to other writers), etc. to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But I know writing is what I’m supposed to do and this novel is the one of my heart and every author’s journey is different, but whew it’s just hard to be patient and wait on God and trust Him sometimes even when I totally know He’s trustworthy. So thank you for the reminder! P.S. I’m really enjoying “The Illusionist’s Apprentice”! And I can’t wait for your next book!! I love Ireland! Keep up the great work!
