Everything I have possessed in life, I got from God free of charge without paying a dime.
Everything I have prayed for in times past, all I have received without any
Everything I have that has made me move ahead in my career, it was all God’s plan.
Now tell me, who am I that have received great and wonderful things from God and wouldn’t speak of His mercies.
Tell me, who am I not to return everything back to HIM.
I still remember that night when I couldn’t sleep because I wanted God to speak to me.
I wanted to be a writer so dearly but circumstances wouldn’t let me
I asked why, why and why. Would I ever be a writer at all?
Of course, what’s the worth of being a writer when no one reads what you have to say?
I was becoming desperate to see myself get published anyhow it took.
Many writing firms turned me down and said my articles weren’t good enough
But I knew there was something more to my story. I just wouldn’t give up.
Most nights I cried. I asked myself questions I couldn’t answer.
But then, a particular night came when the heavens
“Create a blog of your own and publish your writings there” was all I heard.
Immediately, I got a pen and paper and began to write down the vision.
Remember these statistics;
A few days ago, I was hungry for more
A particular night, I heard a voice
A few days later, the vision became a reality.
I started publishing my own writings and was grateful for the 20 constant viewers
I knew what I went through, I never wanted any other writer to feel that pain.
Encouraging writers and believing in them became my lifestyle. I was joyful ones again.
Fast-forward to today, Commune Writers Int’l has become a global success.
Not just by being among the Top 100 best writing blogs in the world;
Or the numerous international awards and recognition received year after year
Or the 100k + visitors that stream the website month after month?
Everything, I give back to God.
