As of recently, I have felt a nudge on my heart to write more. This may come off as a surprising statement, as I clearly have been lagging in the “writing 4 posts a week” goal for my blog. I am here to tell you something special:
I am writing a book.
Yes, I am a newbie and yes, it can be overwhelming. However, I have something stirring within my heart: a stir that cannot be settled until I do what my Heavenly Father asks of me. He gives us each special talents and He wants us to use them for His glory, and that is what I want to do.
It is challenging and so exciting at the same time, as God is speaking things to me and giving me direction for every chapter of this book. This book is not about me: it’s about Him.
I am choosing to keep the message of the book private until I am nearing the end of writing it, but I ask that you all would keep me in your prayers. I want to reach others and do this well, and the only way I can do that is through God’s strength, grace and provision-along with your prayers!
I want to always make sure I am living in obedience to Christ. If He calls us, He will equip us. It’s so easy to shrink back in fear when He puts a calling on our hearts to go. Go doesn’t always mean going to another country to be a missionary. It can mean standing up for what you know is right, making an active choice to do what He has been putting on your heart, calling someone, writing a book or blog, etc.! In my opinion, go means to act.
Therefore, I will act.
I will go forth, trusting God along every twist and turn of this process. I can’t wait to see the hearts He will reach through this book. I am just the the messenger!
On a side note: I am still going to continue writing in my blog, as I truly enjoy doing it! Please continue to check in once in a while to stay up to date on my latest recipes, thoughts, beauty product reviews, etc.!
