Today I got my first post published. How exciting. For years I have been writing and hoping that one day I could be a published writer. I write fiction. This last year the Lord has given me some little nuggets of insight and provided an avenue to share them with others. Today seeing my words published on a Magazine’s blog was uplifting to say the least.
I am looking forward to 2012. I have a feeling that it is going to be a great year; but then again every year with the Lord is a great year. Today was just a glimpse of the possibility that my dreams of being a writer might come true, but let’s not get the cart before the horse.
I have been working hard toward this goal, off and on, for many years. Nothing worth having is easy. The Lord has taught me that if I just do the best I can do, He will provide the rest.
For many years I was in a sales field and attended, what felt like hundreds of seminars on how to be successful. Their focus was on worldly success, which is not a bad thing, but through many trials and errors I learned that my success was in the Lord’s hands. He taught me to concentrate on what is important, my clients, and do the very best job I could do and He would handle the rest. I became successful and with that success was the assurance that I was doing it His way not mine.
So this has become my life’s philosophy, to do the very best I can at whatever I am involved in and leave the rest up to Him. Not only is it more profitable, but it’s much less stressful.
