This man wrote a book that changed my life.
It led me out of a comfort zone.
It was the start of new ministries.
It was a piece of healing.
Then it led to another book being written by me
something I had never done
but it was a call
and then a dream.
Two years in the making
and now it is done.
This man who wrote the awesome book,
says he will now read mine and write something for it.
I've been on cloud nine ever since.
That was a dream of mine, now becoming a reality.
As I traveled down the road to the post office
I found myself dreaming. . .
dreaming of seeing my book on the shelves of stores,
I could see book signings
I could see a movie on the big screen
and then. . . .
God reminded me I was down to one roll of toilet paper in my house.
Two bathrooms and one roll. . .not good.
Yes Lord, you humbled me. Thank you.
After the post office, it was off to Wal-Mart.
All kidding aside, (although, I really was down to one roll)
As I wrote at the end of the book,
this book is not mine,
it was not scripted by me.
Only God could do what He did.
I just had the privilege of being there,
and I had the privilege of writing it down.
I don't know if Mr. Author above will like my book.
I don't know that it will be published.
But I do know that I was called
and with fear and trembling, I obeyed.
And that is a good feeling.
I am humbled how God talked with me
and walked with me
and guided my every step. . .
through the process of book writing
and reminding me of my lack of toilet paper!
It could be scary creating something for the world to see. It could be scary sharing the journey with the world and then it not coming to fruition. But I'm not scared anymore. Whatever happens with the book, I'm ok because it is in God's hands and always has been. That is the best place for it to be, and for me and for you!
"Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
. . .in God I trust and am not afraid. . .
Do you have a dream that you're scared to follow?
Put it into God's hands and be not afraid anymore.
