Yesterday, I talked about transparency and today I will continue with that on a different level. I want to talk about trusting God. It has always been a long time goal of mine to write a book that would encourage and inspire scorned and hurting women, because I too, was once a scorend and hurt woman. That is how I came up with the title of my book, Intimacy with God. I began writing once I was laid off from my job in 2013. And I thought, what a great time for me to start working on my book and I did just that. Now mind you, I am not working and it cost money to publish a book. I submitted my manuscript to three (3) different publishiing companies and they all turned me down. I felt like giving up and not pursuing my dream of becoming an author. I began to pray, and ask God, what should I do?. Maybe my book was not such a good idea after all? I heard God clear as day say to me, don't give up, try another Publishing Company and so I did. I found a Christian Publishing Company that agreed to publish my book and also stated to me that my story inspired them. This gave me the confidence that I needed to continue on. Not only did they accept my manuscript, but they offered me a payment plan that would allow me to make monthly payments. I know this was nothing but God, so for the rest of my life, I will always Pray, Trust, Wait and Obey God!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
