For those of you who write, you've probably heard of the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. I'm going for the first time March 13. The what if's have been trying to intimidate me lately. I'm a non-fiction articles writing trying to make the leap into the fiction world. I'm going to be mailing two copies of my proposal this week for review.
I'm convinced most of us struggle with at least something. My biggie is totally trusting God. Sometimes I wonder if He must be saying, "Julie-babe, you wear me out. Chill out. I've got you." Of course He's smiling as He says it.
Not every day but most days I read the Proverbs that matches the day of the month. (easy because there are 31)
Listen to part of Proverbs 3 from The Message. I read it this morning. It felt as though I'd never read it in my entire life. It hit me with TRUTH all over again:
"Trust God from the bottom of your heart. Don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in EVERYTHING you do, everywhere you go; He's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!
(GET THIS) Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!"
That just about makes me start dancing all alone in my writing loft--the power of the Word. For today, I'm going to hang onto them and to Him.
Anybody want to share what your One Biggie is?
