God amazes me daily. If I stop and really listen, I can “hear” the still, small voice. And I can “see” His work in my life and the lives of others. But I have to get still and really listen. When the Lord put the desire in me to write stories for Him in November of 2009, His voice was a bit louder than usual. I got the message and quick.
Now as a struggling author, I am dealing with rejection after rejection of my work. Lord, are you sure you want me to be a writer? It’s so easy to become discouraged and believe I don’t have what it takes. In fact, sometimes my mind even wants to tell me I’m not worthy or good enough in God’s eyes. That’s why I have to cling to the truth of the scriptures at these times. Get God’s Word deep down in my spirit.
Who can argue with this: Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. God loved me enough to make me brand new.
For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. He chose me? And I’m considered holy and blameless in His sight? Wow.
For we are God’s workmanship. That means I’m His work of art.
When I attained salvation, I have the promise of eternal glory with Jesus. That’s what I have to look forward to.
If God says it, it’s true, so now I can feel positive about myself. I praise God I don’t have to worry about the outcome of His work but trust Him to lead me and accomplish His perfect will.
He leadeth me, oh blessed thought
