God's Constant Presence & In His Time

Posted by Sally Clark on Monday, December 13, 2021

Hi Authors,

Have you been focusing on God's presence during this holiday season? Then you may find this call to be perfect timing.

James Stuart Bell and Jeanette Littleton have an immediate need for more stories for the Guideposts compilation: God's Constant Presence. The deadline for this is January 1, but we'd love submissions earlier (we have to go through an unusual and lengthy process with Guideposts).

The second compilation, as you may know, is: In His Time. We are still accepting stories (by stories, I mean non-fiction articles) for this.

Jim's guidelines are below. Thank you for considering if you have something to submit during this holiday season. If you have already sent in submissions for In His Presence or In His Time, we are so thankful, and you don't need to resubmit those articles. However, you can submit more!

Also, though I know it's frustrating waiting for answers, please do not ask if any submissions you've sent in have been selected--those decisions have not been made yet. It's certainly a process!

Jim and Jeanette both appreciate you so much. So many people grow and are touched by what you write, even when you don't hear about it. The written word can get into some interesting places, and God certainly uses you in ways you don't realize!

Jim and Jeanette wish you a wonderful Christmas reflecting on our Savior, and a New Year full of great writing!

The manuscript calls from Jim are below. Thank you for being part of our writing team!

God’s Constant Presence

Story requirements:

Each true, present-day story shares how God works through ordinary people in extraordinary ways. Each powerful story will remind us that God often works through the people He puts in our paths to guide, protect, and help us. Stories should be written in first person or in third person in “as told to” format.

Story themes:
Occurrences with divine timing
“Chance” encounters that transformed lives
Ordinary people who, with God’s help, accomplished great things
Mysterious strangers who assisted or rescued
Stories of meeting God through helping others
Stories of emotional and physical healing
Life-changing relationships

Story length:
1,000-1,500 words

Specific suggestions:
Stories should not preach, proselytize, or politicize.
Stories can range from heartwarming to miraculous or dramatic
Must express a clear Christian connection and worldview
Experience and story should be grounded in a real-life situation: physical setting, time, place, context of the person’s life
Faith must be an integral part of the story.
Include with each story two scriptures that relate to the story
We are unable to accept previously published work, even if it has appeared only in a blog.

For this project we’ll consider only original, unpublished stories of up to 1500 words and they must be at least 1,000 words. The stories should have a creative title, an attention-grabbing introduction, a main body with a conflict or challenge, and a clear, satisfying resolution with God’s supernatural activity clearly indicated. They need to be descriptive, rooted in time and place, with a realistic portrayal of the characters and their spiritual growth.

They also need to be substantive stories rather than mere testimonies or teachings. We will have a final due date for the manuscript of November 7, 2021, but we would appreciate your submission even sooner, which will give you a greater chance of acceptance.

Please send your manuscript attached to the e-mail rather than pasting text in the email window. Send your manuscript in normal manuscript formatting in Times New Roman, 16-point, with your full contact information--name, address, phone number, and e-mail address at the top of the first page. We are offering a one-time fee of $40 for your story.  The main reason is that these stories will average out at about half the length of our previous compilations.                              

Guideposts Publishers will create a release form upon the publisher’s acceptance and we would need them back promptly. Payment will be made after all contracts have been received. Please direct all inquiries and manuscripts to Jeanette Littleton whose email address is: compilations@earthlink.net . Please put the title of the book in the subject line.

If this e-mail has been forwarded to you, and you can’t submit to this call, but would like to hear about other editorial needs as they arise, please send us your e-mail address and we’ll add you to our notification list. If you wish to pass on this publishing opportunity to other qualified writers we would appreciate it.

Blessings to you and yours,

James Stuart Bell

In God’s Time

Story requirements:

Each chapter is centered around a line from Ecclesiastes 3:2-8. Each modern-day story should be written from a first-person perspective (or a third-person “as told to”), contain an element of answered prayer, and be structured roughly as a story (starting with a problem or challenging situation and then showing how the situation was resolved).

Any story relating to the themes in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 will be considered, but following are some suggested topics:
Beginnings and endings, including relationships, careers, major moves, and also themes of birth and passing.
Recovery from addiction or overcoming negative habits
Moving beyond grief and experiencing joy: recovering from personal or natural disasters, mourning, the power of laughter to change a situation
Separation and reunion, or life change that resulted from long periods of travel or living abroad; also, stories of “leaving the nest” to explore new adventures
Things gained and lost, fortunes built or lost, collecting or letting go of things for a meaningful purpose
Overcoming conflict in families, friendships, and communities, especially when a decision to speak up (or stay silent) at the right moment made a big difference
The devastating effects of war or hate and the power of love to overcome them.

Story length:
1,000-1,500 words

Specific suggestions:
Stories should not preach, proselytize, or politicize.
Faith must be an integral part of your story.
Include with each story two scriptures to inspire greater faith in God.
We are unable to accept previously published work, even if it has appeared only in a blog.

For this project we’ll consider only original, unpublished stories of up to 1500 words and they must be at least 1000 words. The stories should have a creative title, an attention-grabbing introduction, a main body with a conflict or challenge, and a clear, satisfying resolution with God’s supernatural activity clearly indicated. They need to be descriptive, rooted in time and place, with a realistic portrayal of the characters and their spiritual growth.

They also need to be substantive stories rather than mere testimonies or teachings. We will have a final due date for the manuscript of December 15, 2021, but we would appreciate your submission even sooner, which will give you a greater chance of acceptance.
