I put my word counter back up. As you might notice, I have increased the target word count. I hope to get close to the target, but will have to see what happens with the story line. I haven’t worked on the novel for a while since I have been editing the first chapters for a contest. It may sound silly, but I miss my characters and wonder what they have been up to in my absence. I hope to get going again right away.
I have been submitting articles and entering contests left and right. I feel good knowing I am doing what I was designed to do. I love writing and I think my skills have improved over the last few months; with the help of some writer friends and lots of reading. So I just keep writing and waiting, writing and waiting.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 says that the Lord has plans for me, and that if I call upon Him, He will listen. He holds the future of my gifts. All I have to do is trust Him. That’s all, just trust Him. Yeah, trust Him. Does anyone else have trouble with that?????
If we only knew says Max Lucado. “If only we could learn to trust him. But how hard it is…we forget that he is the pilot and we are his passengers…The gift and the Giver. If you know them, you know all you need.” (A Gentle Thunder)
So what area of your life are you having trouble trusting God?
