Writer’s Insurance

Have you ever endured the process of renting a car?

Recently, I rented a car on a business trip. I stepped up to the desk to check in, and immediately, the pressure began.

They tried to sell me some really expensive insurance and used hefty scare tactics to do it. Unsure of what to do, I stood there and prayed silently, asking God to guide me to a wise decision.

Seconds later, I heard a still, small voice in my mind, “I am your insurance.”

I let out a breath I hadn’t realized I was holding, and nodded in agreement. I’m sure the clerk wondered what I was nodding at. And for the next few days, I trusted God to protect my driving vehicle.

Currently, I’m struggling to finish my first non-fiction book in time to meet my publisher’s September deadline. This isn’t an easy goal, since I also manage a large river resort, and April through September are my busiest months of the year. So I need a writer’s insurance policy.

Praying, I need the reminder that God is my insurance. He insures I’ll have the time, energy, and resources necessary to meet the deadlines ahead.

And so, I’m letting out the breath I’ve been holding. I’m nodding in agreement. I’m trusting God to protect my writing vehicle, so I can get the job done. He is my writer’s insurance.

Do you count on the assurance of God’s insurance so you can meet your deadlines?
