A few years back, I heard an energetic speaker/author at a ladies’ meeting. Her name is Joyce Schneider. I got an email from her today saying she has published a new book called “If God is So Good, Why is my Life such a Mess?”
Now, I looked heavenward and asked God why He would have her write a book similar to the one I am currently writing. My first emotion was discouragement. “But God, I felt You tell me to write of my testimony and add inspirational scripture.” Surely it wasn’t merely my flesh that just set out to the fun of writing a book. If that was the case, some of the fun has worn off after the first 30 pages I’ve written.
I had confirmations and scriptures of confirmations about my idea that my book needs to be out as soon as possible. The time draws near when Jesus is coming back.
I heard a song on the radio that encouraged me. My life was reigned in by the lyrics of Kristian Stanfill’s “My Heart Is Yours.” Yes, God. I about pulled the car over with tears in my eyes. My life is God’s. My heart is God’s. I do want Him to take it all. Everything is in His hands.
I thank God He teaches me more about faith and He’s continually maturing me. (Romans 1: 17)
