Like Jonah, fear caused me to run from God’s call for me to write eleven years ago. I spent months in the belly of the whale as I disobeyed and questioned my abilities. This blog has been the result of God using a total stranger to set my feet on solid ground and confirm that it was time to share the words God had given me. Writing is easy, but sharing is still the scariest and most difficult part. Honestly, I feel anxious each time I share, but God continues to give the strength I need to follow through with His will. My hope is for His word to speak to people through the devotions I write and to help renew someone’s strength through whatever circumstances they may face.
A few months ago, I was contacted by Miss Eglaide, who is the publisher of The Lighthouse News in Gulf Shores, Alabama. She had visited my page and asked to publish a devotional which I wrote a few years ago called “Peaceful Maneuvers“. I truly appreciate her contacting me and including me in this publication. She was so sweet to share a copy with me, so I wanted to share with you below. You can see the entire Lighthouse News publication here.
Once again, God has used a stranger to encourage me in this mission. Take time today to encourage someone. You never know how it might affect their walk!
