I'm a little late with my New Year's post, but you all know my philosophy on New Year's resolutions. I shared it a couple years ago, but here's the skinny...If there's something in my life that I recognize needs to change, why wait until January 1st?
|Happy New Year! (picture compliments of Bing)|
But that doesn't stop me from reflecting over the last year, totally in awe over the blessings God poured out in my personal life and in my writing.
2013 was spectacular! Two more of my books released, Journey's Embrace and When Truth Whispers, making a total of five published romances, all with Pelican Book Group. Several more books are contracted and in various stages of publication, and who knows what 2014 will bring.
I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately, especially in regards to my writing. God's prompting me to dig deep and try new things, to release my dreams and fears to Him, to spread my wings and soar over unfamiliar waters, to reach out and love more.
What does that mean? I don't know, but I trust God. If He points to a road and says, "Go that way. I want you to meet somebody," just like when He directed Philip towards the Ethiopian (Acts 8:26-40), who am I to argue?
Who does God want me to connect with this year?
Where He leads, I will follow.
"The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
And I'll try not to allow fear to squelch that giant swell of anticipation that's building and rising for the journey ahead, that awesome wondrous feeling that God loves me and wants the absolute best for me...just like He loves you!
Wishing you a joyous, Son-kissed 2014, my friends!
