Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous week!
This week, I will not be posting a full blog post. Instead, I will post just a couple of scriptures to ponder.
The reason I am not posting this week is due to the progress on my book, Love Echoed Back. I have received my manuscript back from the editor and will be reviewing a few minor edits before it goes to the Interior Designers! I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers over the next week while I wrap up the editing portion of the publishing process!
I will definitely be back to writing next week! Until then, ponder this:
What do you need to let go of? What is Jesus trying to do in your life?
But forget all that—
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. –Isaiah 43:18-19 NLT
What do you need to praise the Lord for this week?
I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.
I will be filled with joy because of you.
I will sing praises to your name, O Most High. –Psalm 9:1-2 NLT
Feel free to leave a comment, and let me know what Jesus is doing in your life!
This week I wanted to share a small excerpt from my upcoming book: Love Echoed Back. Send me a comment using the link below and tell me what you think!
I would slowly, reluctantly, and tearfully release my status. Over the course of the last several years, I realized how wrapped up my self-image was in my status. For a period, the diplomas on my wall, the ones outlining my steps in life, defining my career, somehow took on a life of their own. They lured me into a false sense of security and safety. They flattered me into believing my success in life depended on them. They dulled my sense of hearing to the Father’s call, and they shifted my focus onto earthly issues, not eternal ones. They pretended to be my life’s work. So disillusioned by the current events surrounding me, I had to separate myself physically from them or risk drowning in their shadow. I removed them from the walls for a better part of two years unable to bear their taunts and misleading promises. Broken, I could now be healed. Crushed, I could now truly begin again. This wasn’t the work of an angry God, but a compassionate Savior saving me from myself. Life redefined, you bet. Thank goodness He holds an eraser.
