You've probably heard it so much that you may even tune it out: writing and publishing a book is a good thing. But do you know why?

In today's episode, I'll give you 7 good reasons why you should write a book, even if you think you're “not a writer”.

Spiritual Foundations: How to Live Freely and Lightly

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with Me and work with Me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew [11:28]–30, THE MESSAGE

“Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.” Following Jesus is not heavy or difficult. Anyone or anything that makes you tired, worn out, or beaten down by man-made religious rules… that didn't come from Jesus.

Stop trying to be perfect. You can't. God doesn't require us to be Christ-like, but invites us into the Christ-life.

God will never cause you to be sick, or worried, or stressed out. He is good, and will always stand ready to heal, to soothe, and to bring peace.

Look for the goodness of God that is already in your life, and then watch that goodness increase.
