Just wanted to take a quick moment to pop in and give you a little sneak peek into what I am currently working on!!!!! I am very excited and tremendously nervous all at the same time.
I have tried to find ways around it; to put it off- questioning my personal abilities. In sincere prayer, I have sought the Lord’s guidance and direction. During my internal struggle to find God’s will, I chose to use a strategy of faith that has never failed me!
I asked the Lord to give the direction for my life to….. my Husband!
I asked the Lord to use Jamie as His “audible voice”.
This is a Faith Strategy that has proven itself over and over again! Not only do I have that much confidence in my Husband’s relationship with the Lord, I also have that much confidence in my Lord!
For many years now I have prayed for my Husband! I have prayed for Encouragement– when there seems to be more Month than there is Money. Peace– when he seems stressed or overwhelmed. Healing– when he perseveres through regular bouts of headaches. Joy– when he is uptight. And then there is Wisdom. Since our early months of marriage I have prayed for my husband to have God-given wisdom.
Countless times over I have seen the blessed fruits of my prayers manifested in my husband! Weighing in the most is Wisdom!
(Jamie doesn’t know it but, he is a walking, talking, active answer to prayer!)
So, while having such confidence in both the Lord and my man, I asked for direction for my life. And what do you think I received?????
A blessed answer!
I wish that I could say that my darling husband called me aside to a quiet place to speak with me about something that the Lord had laid on his heart to tell me, but that was not the case. One night, after the day was well spent and I was at the point of frustration for lack of my ability to understand God’s will, I asked Jamie, “What am I supposed to do? I just don’t know what God wants me to do!” Jamie’s reply about knocked me down.
“Write a book.”
“You read that book.”[referring to Discovering Your God-Given Gifts]
I was floored. I love to write! But a book? How will I pay for the publishing? How do I even begin to compile my random thoughts into a book format? What if my manuscript is rejected? Who will even want to read it enough to buy a copy? How am I supposed to do that- Write a book?
Yet, I knew when Jamie said that and in such a plain way (not “Well, you might try…” or “What if you…”) that this was the answer to my prayers and a clear direction for me to take. Great. Awesome. Now what. I know what I am supposed to do but how do I do it? For every excu.. ahem, reason that I would give for why I couldn’t possibly write, the Lord would ever so sweetly shine His light and expose Himself!
So that’s it! Lord willing, I am going to begin compiling my manuscript for a…. real….book! I realize that I have kinda left you gals hanging on the Top 15 Ways to Manage Many -Part 4&5 and I promised to also do a post on my favorite books! I haven’t forgotten, just have to put them on the back-burner for a little bit. 🙂 If it helps to make the wait any better, here are a few sneak peeks of what “the book” will be about!!!!!!
