A Gift from Dad

Currently my Creative Prayers book is with an editor. It has been nearly 3 months since I mailed it in so I don’t have much hope that it will get picked up. Today during my prayer time I was just sort of talking to God about the book and my heart. I was praying that it would make my heart glad for it to be published. I said that I knew that was a silly reason to pray for something, and I did want what God wanted not what I wanted, but it would just make me smile to know that God was listening to me.

Well, I didn’t hear from the publisher, but tonight when I got home from church I got an email about another writing opportunity. It was like a little gift from God because He knew it would make me smile. I think about how much I love giving Nathan gifts that I know he will like. I love to watch his eyes light up and to hear the excitement in his voice. Today I feel like God did the same thing for me. He gave me a small gift to let me know he was listening.

It was a good day.

    I’m so glad for you! Just write for Him out of the overflow of your heart and He will do amazing things…I know this from experience. God placed the talent and desire in your heart and He will use it for His glory in His timing. Just don’t worry about publishers…God owns it all anyway and He has much better connections:) I’m glad this opportunity encouraged you and made you smile…what a blessing from such an awesome Father!
