What do you want first: the good news or the great news?

How about we start with the good news?  I’ve been doing Weight Watchers since January and have officially lost 15 pounds!  Sweet!  I’d always sworn I’d never be one of those girls who gains weight when they get married, but what can you do?  I was nesting!  Still am, for that matter, except now I’m doing it with Double Fiber bread and smaller bowls of ice cream.

Okay, ready for the great news?  I’ve been threatening to write a book for a while, and recently have been feeling quite a lot of urgency to tell a story I’ve always known I was supposed to tell.  I did some research Sunday night on literary agents and publishers and, well, it was discouraging.  I felt intimidated and overwhelmed.  So I got into bed, got out my journal, and wrote down this prayer: “God, if you want this to happen, you’re going to have to do it.”

Monday morning, I got an email back from a friend in England who published a book a couple of years ago.  She’s freelancing as a commissioning editor for one of the largest publishers of Christian books in the UK…she had some encouraging words and some great feedback, and now, I believe it’s possible.  In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s probable, because that is how mighty and awesome God is, and that is how He works.

That’s all I’m going to say for now, but I covet your prayers!

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow…

  1. Write to please Jesus. Then, if no agent, publisher, critic or other person ever cares about your book, you will not be disappointed in the least. Jesus, all by Himself, is an awesome audience.
