It’s amazing how you can get so immersed in God and he takes you from a mighty wind and puts you in a place where all you can hear is HIS voice. I take it that is the path I am on at this point. My husband is deployed and I am drowning and basking in God’s mercies and his grace. I don’t have anyone to talk to so God has my attention. A few months ago, I decided that there was a spiritual level I desired to pursue. I wanted to become a better person. Daily I ask God to make clear of issues I need to correct. Last night, I swallowed pride and made amends with an old friend whom I had a cyber-misunderstanding with; I gave to others despite not having much and the doors has truly opened for me. I am creating in me a “new” heart for God. I am a God Chaser.
As for writing, “Hold My Hand” is coming along okay, but I feel something is missing. “Unless She Forgives” is engaging and the pages are filling up but again, something’s missing. So I tapped into other avenues of writing and in less than two minutes, Embry and I capitalized on a childhood legacy: my stories about Faith the Flower.
Since Embry was a year old, I would always tell her bedtime stories about a tiny sunflower named Faith. Faith struggled with her life because of her size. She felt being small meant less impact. Over the course of the years, Faith has undergone a lot and Embry has witnessed Faith grow in a variety of ways, such as: character, strength, faith, love, and hope. I figured, it was time to share Faith with the world. I have submitted manuscripts to publishing houses who accept unsolicited manuscripts so let’s pray that God moves mountains for me without the help of a literary agent but if not then I can continue to search for the right person. Faith is genuinely from my oration and imagination but she has powerful messages that we all can learn from in some way.
There is some Faith in us all as we endure life’s challenges, struggles, woes, joys, and many pleasures. We all get weary, faithless, scared, weak, and tired but continue on because our God promised us brighter days ahead.
I never knew why I came to Mississippi, but so much is unfolding and I feel blessed.I don’t know what God’s doing with me but I have to be obedient to his call on my life. I know I am a writer and I can write for all ages. I have “faith” that God is going to thrust me into the literary world and I will be able to witness the goodness of Christ through my writing. There’s no way but up from this point on because my God says so and I BELIEVE and I work hard to fulfill all my dreams.
Do you have faith?!? I do.
