Thy Will Be Done

In exactly 26 days I wiLaunch Party Flyerll be launching my first book “Wait on God: What Every Single Woman Should Know to Receive God’s Best!” and I couldn’t be more excited or more nervous. I’m excited about this new venture and all of the opportunities that are already opening up for me, but I am nervous because this is a new venture and there will be opportunities opening up for me. I know it may sound confusing, but I can sum it up in a nutshell with this…fear of the unknown. I have never published a book before, so with this new endeavor comes new challenges.  I don’t know what those challenges will be, so it’s kind of difficult to prepare for something you don’t know is coming your way.

Part of the reason I waited so long to finish writing this book and begin the publishing process was because I knew once I put it out there for the world to see, it would either be accepted or rejected, and more accurately put–accepted and rejected. My personal work would be put on public display and hence subject to criticism. I now realize that was part of the devil’s ploy to thwart my progress and get me to forfeit my blessing and forfeit being a blessing to others who would read it and actually learn something from it. I also realize that not everyone will support, congratulate, or even acknowledge my accomplishment, even the people I may expect would do these things, but it’s okay. As long as God supports, congratulates, and acknowledges it I’m good. It is His job to touch the hearts of people concerning my book, not mine. So that takes away some of the pressure. Someone told me that I wouldn’t get rich off of this project, and honestly that is not the reason why I wrote it. I wrote it because I experienced it and want to be a blessing to someone else. I believe that I am experiencing God’s best in my marriage, and it would be selfish of me not to share God’s goodness and His divine plan with others. But if God wants to use this book to make me rich, I’m not opposed to that idea either. But instead of trying to manufacture success on my own, I will trust God to do as He pleases with it. I know that if He touches it it has to prosper because when Jesus says yes nobody can say no.

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us,who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

    I am SO excited for you. I’m in the process of writing a book of short stories capturing the expressions of God. I look forward to hearing of your success. I pray for your strength to stand in the face of opposition in light of all of the opportunities.
