So here it is folks my first official published work!
Not what I thought it would be. But isn’t that usually how life is? What we think will happen, what we are expecting is rarely how it turns out. God says in his word "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. Isaiah 55:8.
My life is in His hands and He is faithful to me as I am faithful to Him. He has given me this gift of writing and as I am faithful to use it as He directs me He is faithful to me. I am published. A dream that I have hidden away for over ten years had come true. It did not come true in the way that I had dreamed, yet this is only the beginning, He is still teaching me to be faithful. He is still leading me down a path of discipline. As I walk with Him and follow His plan for my life He rewards my faithfulness with the desires of my heart. What a great God we serve. That He would give me such a precious gift. He does not need to give me this gift. He has already given me so much; such a wonderful life, such a wonderful family. Yet in his immeasurable abundance and grace He desires to give me more, to give me the desires of my heart. What great love He has for me and for you.
I wonder how often we miss out on those things we desire because we don’t peruse them. So many times I’ve put away my desire to write. Saying it’s trivial, it has no real value in the Kingdom. Was He all the while waiting patiently for me to use the talent He had given me? Waiting to reward my efforts with the gift of my dreams? How often do we not see his great abundance because we do not ask? We do not dare to dream? He is our father, our loving father who longs to give us good gifts. What are the dreams that you long to pursue? God has made us in His image. He is a dreamer too.
