Do you ever feel like a fraud?
Today I do, just a little bit.
When God told me to quit my job as a teacher and write, I didn’t realize the magnitude of identity shift this would cause. Now, when people ask me what I do, I say, “Well, I’m a writer.” Then they ask me what I’ve published.
I know that my identity is hidden away in Christ. When I obey him, then I am doing my job exactly right. So now, when those feelings of doubt or awkwardness creep in, I don’t have to let them control me.
I have been called to write; I spend hours every day writing; therefore, I am a writer.
The rest is yet to come.
