I’m So Excited (Part 2)

Life is good even in the midst of trouble. I had a great time of worship this morning. There is something so sweet about being with the Father and this morning He met me right there. Today marks a milestone in my life and I face it with a bit of sadness but more importantly I face it with celebration of the love that I have. God has been so good to me over the past year. This morning we sang a song that reminded me of this:

Your eye is on the sparrow
And Your hand, it comforts me
From the ends of the Earth to the depth of my heart
Let Your mercy and strength be seen

You call me to Your purpose
As angels understand
For Your glory, may You draw all men
As Your love and grace demand

And I will run to You
To Your words of truth
Not by might, not by power
But by the spirit of God
Yes I will run the race
‘Till I see Your face
Oh let me live in the glory of Your grace

I will Run to You – Hillsong

I shared a couple weeks ago that there is something I’m very excited about but would not voice it. God has continued to nudge my heart and prompt me in a way that scares me to death first because I don’t feel equipped;  second, once I voice it then comes accountability and let’s be honest how many of us really enjoy that? Even now, I sit here clenching my hands afraid to tell you. I must say that I had a few good laughs at the guesses you all had last week over that post. Well, here it goes….

For a long time I’ve had a dream to do this. It isn’t something I’ve shared, it’s been tucked away in my heart and mind but never knew what or how it would come to be. The Lord has continued to prompt me and has even used my cancer to encourage me to write. When I started this blog it was simply a way for me to communicate to my family and friends and for me to share my journey as I walk through this season. The time has come for me to fulfill my dream of writing a book. I can’t believe I just said it. Unbeknownst to many of you, your encouragement and comments have been the Lord using you to work on me.

I know this sounds crazy, trust me I’ve had all those same thoughts. I don’t know what I’m doing, I don’t how to do it and I’m certainly not sure what I’m going to say. But I do believe without a doubt the Lord has laid it on my heart to go for my dream….

“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”  — Isaiah 41:13

    I can truly see you writing a book, because everyone is eager for your next writing about what is happening and how you are doing.
