Susan Allen Panzica“Write this.
Write what you see.

Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn’t lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It’s on its way. It will come right on time.”

Hab. 2:2-3

If anyone told me that someday I’d be a writer, I’d have thought them insane. As a student, I always preferred a test to writing a paper. Writing was just never my thing.

But then I had an idea for a book. Thinking myself insane, I kept this idea secret for years, until God crashed through and said, “It’s time!” Through a series of comical “mistakes,” I ended up at a writers’ conference.

At the end of that first day, exhausted and overwhelmed, I experienced the death of a dream. Yet I wasn’t disappointed, more like relieved that now I wouldn’t have to do the work! But when I woke up the following morning, four words pushed through my morning brain haze. “Don’t bury your talent.

This was not a “You go, girl! Use your talent.” thought. It was a “don’t be a wicked and lazy servant” thought. I did NOT want to be compared to the fear-filled servant in Matthew 25 who buried his one talent rather than invest it for the Master.

That was the beginning of a new journey, learning how to write, to write better, to connect with others in the industry. Now having published some articles and a children’s book, I’m finally getting back to the original book idea that started it all. I’ll keep you posted when you can expect to see that dream come true!
