A promise is a pretty neat thing.

A few years ago, God gave me a promise. He whispered these words to my soul and spoke them softly into my heart.

My heart is overflowing with a good theme.
I recite my composition concerning the King.
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
Psalm 45:1

There was going to be something I wrote, something I spoke about concerning the Lord. I still had my doubts. But in faith when He asked me to believe, I did. Blessed is she who believed what the Lord said to her would be accomplished. Luke 1:45 With each door He opened I held my breath, grabbed His hand and walked through.

As a writer, rejection is common. But, my God is not. Being a nobody to the world doesn't matter. I am a somebody to Him. Years after His promise to me there has been fruit; magazine articles, editors and authors I can call friends, and the faith to continue.

My book is now being looked at by two publishing houses. Friends, please pray for His will in this.The Radical Sabbatical - Break Free from the Bondage of Busyness and the Captivity of Activity will be published in His time.

Until then, I will keep saying Yes, and enjoy this amazing journey.

What promise has He given you? What have you said yes to lately?

beautiful! His promise to me is ...

"'Though the mountians be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor my covenant of peace be removed,' says the Lord who has compassion on you."
Isaiah 54:10

He gave me this verse 3 years ago and it has been true every second of every day! :)

Praying for you that the Lord may be glorified through your book. It sounds great, I would love to read it. God is really teaching me to seek Him and not get bogged down in the busyness of life. God bless you.

How exciting for you!God made you a writer and I know He will use your work to touch lives for Him. He has plans for you and they are good!

Therefore, my dear brothers (sister), stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58.

Great title. Let us know when it's in the bookstores. I love it when God promises things.

How exciting! I'll pray about this too and pray for you as well, because it can be hard to wait for God's timing.

How very exciting about your book!

God promised me last fall concerning my prodigal, that "each step away brings him closer home"...

Just this past weekend, the Lord promised me peace in a certain situation, and now that is what fills my heart...peace!

Such precious promises....

I KNOW it will happen...and all I can say is "I want to buy the first copy AND I want it signed by the author...who I call FRIEND and SISTER!"

I love you dearly! Am clinging to HIS promises with you!
