Follow. It’s my word-to-live-by this year. The word that made its presence known and wouldn’t leave my brain. I’ll be tested, no doubt about it. Last year’s word was Trust, and God challenged me.
So why the word follow? I’m not sure yet, but lately I’ve been asked one question more than any other: How did you know you were meant to be a writer?
For this very reason.
Now I realize that sometimes our will isn’t always God’s will, so we need to make certain whose dream it really is. But God will not let you forget His will either. And no matter how many times I made excuses, let “life” get in the way, or pursued something else, my passion for writing would not stop bobbing to the surface.
The Lord has blessed me. He’s opened doors. I’ve stepped through. And with each and every day, I’m learning to follow.
