Potential is something I believe my writing life has been given ever since I took a chance and started blogging seven years ago. And because I’ve since found out writers need to have an online presence, and an active engagement with potential readers, I’m glad I dove into blogging. The reason I started my website was because I noticed I loved to express my faith on Facebook. And since I had so much I wanted to say, I began a blog.
Writers write because that’s who they are—writers. When we write daily and submit our work for critiques and edits, we increase the potential we will eventually be traditionally published.
Yes, that’s my goal. I believe having a desire is the first step required for potential. And as one of my favorite Goethe quotes suggests, we invite Providence to step in and step up our potential of reaching the dream we’re pursuing when we go for it with all we’ve got.
(Five minutes of writing ended here; but as I was saying, I have more to say.)
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.
Proverbs 16:3 NIV
Have you got an idea brewing in the background that needs to be brought to the foreground of your day planner?

Potential is propelled
When we place our plans with God
Because His will always prospers
And it’s better than any we’ve got
Potential is potent
When we follow Spirit-led passion
Because we’re made by Him
Who knows exactly how we’re fashioned.
Potent with potential blessings ~ Wendy Mac
P.S. Earlier this week, I wrote on HeartWingsBlog about a dear friend of mine who was the first person to encourage my writing dream.
