I have a couple of monumental (for me) posts heading your way. The emotional attack I have been under over the past few weeks and months has all come into focus and I am just in awe of the stuff that the Holy Spirit is uncovering in my life and how He’s walking me through it and keeping my heart so tender and receptive in the process.
I haven’t felt the urge to write something new, so strongly in awhile and as I think about manuscripts already written that need to be revised, and even completed, all I want to do is dive into something brand new and give it everything I’ve got. I feel like I’m cheating on my other works, putting them off like that, but it’s not as if they’re supposed to be published tomorrow . . . I know my characters will forgive me.
So tomorrow, before I start a new manuscript, I will have the first of probably 3-5 posts about what’s going on in my life. Someone asked me recently why I choose to share so freely about what I’m going through, and my initial response was, “That’s just who I am.” I wear my heart on my sleeve, but then I wondered for what purpose? The purpose is because every single time I share with my readers what I’m going through, I get a response. Someone messages me and says, “How are you in my brain/heart right now?”
1 Peter 5:9 tells us (paraphrased) that our struggles are not unique; that people all over the world struggle with similar root issues, so I believe that what the Father is working out in me, He can also work out in you, and maybe, just maybe He’ll use my words to start or continue the process.
So stay tuned. My next heart-surgery post is coming!
