Thoughts from my devotional reading this week, which, as a writer who wrote for twenty years before God opened a certain door, I found encouraging…
~ from Streams in the Desert
As one who has waited long, I say Amen. I can recall at a certain point in my long writing journey wondering if God’s answer for me, as it pertained to publication through a traditional publisher, was No. At about that same time I posed the question to myself, “If you knew for a fact you would never be published, would you keep writing anyway?”
When I was able to answer Yes to that, I also decided that while I was writing it couldn’t hurt to keep knocking on those publishing doors, through queries and through prayer. If I didn’t knock, I figured chances were those doors wouldn’t open. If God didn’t open one, despite my knocking, it would be all right. I trusted He knew what was best for me in this situation.
Turned out my Yes was a Delayed Blessing.
