Many years ago God made it clear to me that I was to do this and all the pieces of the puzzle have not come together until now.
It's been a strange day (good and bad) but I'm choosing right now to be excited about something that I've literally been working on for 9 years. Yikes, when I count them up, that is A LONG time but it's true.
I just sent two workbooks to an editor! This has been a long time in coming and is one of the last steps before I can put them "out there" for others to benefit from.
It reminds me of a portion of a verse I actually had "stickered" to my wallet years ago. God gave me this "message" after I had had a miscarriage and it gave me great peace that I would have those little "blessings" running around and I did, and do!
Psalms 37:34: Don’t be impatient for the Lord to act! Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and in due season he will honor you with every blessing..." TLB
(by the way the "rest of it is" and you will see the wicked destroyed, which wasn't the part I felt God was emphasizing to me but still, it's there.)
Sometimes we just have to "keep traveling along" and that seems to be what's happening in this long situation too.
So thank you Lord for this bright spot in an otherwise depressing day. Hopefully it will serve as an encouragement to others to keep plugging along on whatever God has laid on your heart.
Sometimes, like today when we've received not so good news in other areas of our life, you have to force yourself back to work and look for something to be excited about. This is it today.
I'll leave it at that and be a bit "cryptic" for now, but good things will be "coming soon"!
