I didn’t think I could do it. Become a Christian author. I mean, just how do you write about God?
Answer: with His help and grace.
It took years. It was getting too personal. God patiently encouraged me and somehow let me know I was to do it anyway. He never said His way was easy. He spoke about His yoke being easy. Yoke means together.
I’m a little scared. The book is so personal. But I’m excited, too, however, because I know I’m following God’s will by doing so and that, after all, is all that really matters.
So I kept writing until I got it done with His grace, then combed the snarls out. God’s Patient Pursuit of My Soul is the result. The photo shows the chapter outlines that hung on the wall of my office as I wrote the last revision.
I look forward to your questions and your stories in the comments. We all have God stories. I’m pretty sure about that. We don’t know who to tell ’em to. Or we’ve tried and people rolled their eyes. Or made some excuse to get going somewhere. Anywhere. We rarely realize it is God making some crazy things in our life turn out the way they do. That’s part of the reason I became a Christian author. We all need someone to talk to who understands and shares what we’ve experienced. So we do feel so odd.
When good things happen, you may figure it was your lucky day or a happy twist of fate. It’s always God. He’s like the best parent always hovering over you to help you as you walk each day. You are worthy of God working in your life. Yes, you are. His mercy knows no end. I speak from experience. And there’s a whole Book of stories to confirm it. The Good Book.
I encourage you to share your grace-filled moments if the Holy Spirit moves you to do so. Share them on my blog. It may help others.
