Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
When I began writing this devotional blog over two years ago, I never could have dreamed of the amazing friends and fellow bloggers it would bring into my world. How my life has been enriched and blessed by your caring, sharing and encouragement! You have all helped me to grow in my faith walk and in my writing. I cannot thank you enough!
That being said, I realize just today that I need a rest from blogging. Just as God prompted me those years ago to begin Meditations of My Heart, I hear Him just as distinctly say, "It's time to take a break."
Not a forever break. No way! I love this blog, and all of you, too much!
But, a break, nonetheless.
I haven't set a length of time for this period of rest. I'm leaving that up to the Lord to decide. I am confident He will tell me, loud and clear, when it's time to resume.
And, will I continue to write? Ironically, that's exactly why I'm certain God wants me to take this hiatus. My blogging style is quite different from my fiction voice as those of you who have read my novels have more than likely realized. I feel called to immerse my self in the land of fiction once again as I begin work on the sequels to The Glade Series, tentatively titled Adventures in the Glade. I can't do that successfully unless my sole focus is on the novel.
Will I continue to make the rounds of your blogs? Wouldn't miss it for the world! So, though I'm temporarily dropping out of the scene as a blogger, I'm certainly going to stay in touch with each and every one of you.
And, I will, on occasion, post a Friday Moment or a poem or reflection on my alternative blog, Moments and Musings. But, the pressure to post two blogs a week will no longer haunt me.
May God bless you and keep you always!
I don't think I've ever asked this here before, but I'm asking now: Will you be so kind as to pray for me as I shift gears and return to fiction writing?
Please join me in prayer:
We thank You, Father, for Your constant care and guidance in our lives. May we ever be prepared to hear Your still, small voice prompting us and leading us on the paths You would have us travel. May our souls ever find rest in You. Amen.
