Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
It's not the final novel slated for my series, Adventures in The Glade, but it is the last one on the perceivable horizon. Revelation should be released in plenty of time for Christmas orders, and I hope, find itself tidily wrapped beneath the Christmas tree at many of your homes this holiday season.
I reflect upon this past summer as I wrote frenetically. Compulsively. Determinedly.
For I felt God's presence through the Holy Spirit, helping me to accomplish infinitely more than I could ever think or ask.
The endless hours of writing are hours met with eternity. The present celebrating in the Presence.
How can I describe it?
I'm not going to try. Because as a writer, I know I owe my inspiration, imagination and word flow to the One who created it all. How could I possibly explain any part of it?
When His mighty power is at work, who am I to interfere?
I just tell the story.
Use my God-given gift to convey His message.
And before you start thinking I'm someone super-natural or super-special to be able to connect with the Lord in this way, take some time to review, ponder and pray about the gift/gifts with which God has blessed you.
You have it within you.
Unwrap your gift. Offer it to God.
He will show you how to use it to His honor and His glory.
For the Lord will always help you to accomplish infinitely more than what you ask or think.
What is your special gift from God?
Prayer: Father, there are so many of Your children suffering because they don't believe they have the unique gifts You have given each one of them. Help them to realize their gifts, that they can further Your kingdom whenever they share those gifts with others. May we all see Your mighty power at work within us. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
