Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
As crazy and unpredictable as this year has been, I cannot presume to dismiss nor discredit my word for the year, the one God led me to before 2016 breathed its last. The word? HUGE!
And huge, it has been, in both good and not so good ways for me and my loved ones.
Absolutely. Positively. Huge!
It's how God works, isn't it? He doesn't do anything half-heartedly. If it is His will and His purpose, you can bet your bottom dollar those will rain down upon you with the reality of The Flood.
Nothing. Stops. Him.
So even though I've taken breaks from blogging in the past, they've never lasted more than a week. This is different. And it's huge for me.
- Re-read all six of my novels.
- Note story lines that beg for further development.
- Listen for the direction God is telling me to go.
- Pray for His wisdom and guidance every step of the way.
So yes, my friends, that's precisely what I will be doing in earnest over the next several weeks. Please understand this is no overnight decision. Thoughts of embarking upon this task have surfaced frequently in the past two months. Combine it with numerous friends (you know who you are!) clamoring for a new Glade Series novel, and I simply have no choice but to heed the call.
Will a new novel emerge? Yes, if it is God's will.
And if it is, indeed, His will, I expect the outcome to be nothing short of HUGE!
So I will trust in the Lord with all my heart, and lean not on my own understanding these last weeks in August. My plan is to resume blogging after Labor Day, but is it God's? I suppose I'll just have to wait and see . . .
Love and blessings to you all!
