Writing has always been what I loved to do next to reading. As young as six years old I was trying to write my own little stories patterned after the Golden Books and primers I read in school. I couldn't write cursive yet so I was printing out my little tales in those black and white composition books. My memories of those days illustrate how long the Lord has been preparing me for this calling. It astounds me that through all my twists and turns [and believe me there were many] I at last got to this place, the right place. As the singer, Marvin Sapp croons, I never would have made it... And I wouldn't have if it wasn't for the Lord on my side and in my corner. This I know without a doubt. Even when I wasn't saved and seldom gave Him a thought, He had me. When I was living for world and myself, doing my own thing as we baby boomers use to say, He sheltered me and guided me through my mess. For thirty-nine years he watched as I took road after endless road to nowhere, although at the time I thought I was going somewhere. Not knowing my Jesus as Savior and friend and not caring to find out yet He kept me in His sites. Every now and then when I really got too far off the track, He would push me back closer to where I should be. Hind sight is surely 20/20 and I can see clearly now what I didn't have a clue about back then.
So getting published by a company like Moody's LEVB and maybe getting a deal from yet another interested publisher is a wonderful thing indeed but it's been a long time coming. This has been a lifetime route with a lot of detours but I have faith my GOD has it covered and this is HIS show. It was an unction I had from the beginning apparently...a gift from GOD to be used for HIS purpose. Until I was HIS and in the right spiritual condition He never let it fully come out. Bottom line...this was HIS show and HE wasn't about to let HIS program get overshadowed or swallowed up by the world. Whatever lies ahead for my writing career I'm resolute in Christ Jesus being center attraction. I have nothing against secular writing. I often read secular books but that's not what I write. I write from a place of who I am and I am a child of The Most High GOD, born again follower of Jesus The Christ. I consider it an honor to be entrusted to serve the Lord with the powerful human medium...words. Words are more then letters strung together on paper, a computer screen or spoken. They're spirits that ascend to the higher realm and unlock GOD's process and communication for HIS human creation. Words are powerful triggers for our minds that have far reaching effects on us mentally and more importantly spirituality. GOD chose words as a main way to communicate to us and with us. So writing with a Kingdom agenda is a hefty responsibility. My writing in whatever genre will reflect just that. This ability I've been blessed with is a most cherished gift from GOD and I'm purposed to use it for HIS glory.
Be Blessed, My Friends
