Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
God woke me up at Midnight last night with the ending for the chapter I had been working on. I'm still technically in "Chapter 3" of my original manuscript yet it was Chapter 5 I completed.
I made a "Writing to be published" deadline calendar and have it hanging on the wall near my computer. My original manuscript had seventeen chapters. I have goals set to revise said chapters so there would the next completed revision would be ready by the end of Thanksgiving. So far it appears I am five weeks behind!! LOL Yet I'm not really - as I've been revising and adding the juicy details - the first three chapters have turned into five.
I'll be honest with you - I haven't been devoting the necessary time each day to write. I could list my excuses: first couple weeks of school, fulfilling tasks as Oswego Reading Council president, church ministries, volunteer things along with the tasks and joys of being a wife and mom. BUT...I won't!
If I want to finish my book and have it in a publisher's hands by the end of November...I need to prioritize some things and get writing!
Another area I must confess I have let slide is my daily prayer and devotion time! Uh Oh Shaggy! I spent time in the Word yesterday and was refreshed when I closed my eyes for sleep last night. God blessed me when he woke me up in the middle of the night to write. As if to say...see child, if you are obedient I'll help you along the way.
Seriously though - my soul was uplifted getting in the Word and having some solid prayer and devotion time yesterday. I enjoy that half-hour to hour of quiet with my friend and Savior...He is faithful.
Please,don't take this wrong - I'm not reading my Bible, praying and spending time of devotion and listening to receive yet the renewed strength and uplifted spirit help me in every area of my life throughout the day!
Look for more tomorrow!
