Some days, I find it so easy to forget who I am . . . who God created me to be.
I was reading in Psalm 18:49-50 when it hit me. David knew, and was comfortable with, who God designed him to be.
No doubt, he endured derision from his older brothers when he was the one sent to the fields with the sheep. He heard the cutting remarks from those who were certain they knew better than he. And, he put all of himself into working with those sheep.
I’m beginning a five week Tuesday series. I’ve asked some friends to join me in sharing their answers to this question: What life lesson have you learned that has changed you the most? Please stayed tuned as Shelli Littleton, Michelle Lim, Tiffany Parry, andJill Kemerer also share what life lesson changed them the most. And please join in the conversation each week!
I thought I’d begin by sharing my answer.
“What’s love got to do with it?” Everything, it turns out. Sorry if I just put Tina Turner into your heads.
It always amazes me how much my inward thoughts shape the way I see events in my life. Attending ACFW this year was a very different experience than the previous two years. I believe this is due, in part, to the fact that I am more confident in who I am as God’s girl, and as a writer. I know more how things work, what’s expected (though pitching my books still makes me tremble), and I’m getting to know more people.
So, I’m living out this dream of writing. Characters, alive and breathing in my thoughts, have a tale that pushes from within to be written on the screen before me. Day by day adding their words, happenings, joys, heartbreaks to the pages.
