Why is it that I always wake up facing the opposite direction to where the alarm clock is and then have to blindly find the off switch? Sighing deeply, I laid my head back and watched the ceiling fan rotate slowly overhead.
Well Lord, today’s the day. I’ve been waiting two and a half years for this day. Your words are still implanted deep in my heart and printed in my mind. I still wonder at times why you chose me, the least of people I would have chosen. Perhaps I’ll never know or be ready for something like this. It’s not my will but yours. This is your day, your plan. Let it be as you will.
The door bell rang a minute after nine. “Delivery, for A. Writer”
I took a deep breath and for a moment I squeezed my eyes shut tight. Thank you, Lord.
Lifting one of the books from the box, I smelled the cover and breathed in its newness and traced the title with my finger. “My first novel. Thank you, Lord.”
As a writer, I find patience the least of my virtues. I struggle with the rules of writing and the details of grammar and I thank the Lord every day for good editors. Expressions of my emotions take over the reality of what is needed for a good read. I thank God for His patience and His divine intervention when I write to His will.
Wait in hope, perseverance, patience and joy. God will sustain me—His grace is sufficient me. He is all I need.
