I’ve been overwhelmed for what seems to be that last few months. As I look ahead to 2020, I see an ever-growing to-do list with my fourth book releasing in May, and then I see this timely reminder waiting for me to notice it on my shelf.
I’m reminded that I’m not doing this life alone because God is my power source. He’s the One Who invited me on this fiction path. He’s the One Who gives me ideas and words and all the other trappings of this writing life.
And, yes, He is able. He never gets overwhelmed or blindsided or exhausted. As the original Author, He has all the ideas and words.
So I can draw near to Him with a sincere heart full of faith (Hebrews 10:22) and persevere.
Praise God again!
