Deep In The Heart Of Texas

God is faithful. Oh so faithful.

I am on a trip to Texas. I have not spent much time here in Texas. Always wanted to but have just visited a couple times. I have been in Austin then today I head to Houston. I am visiting four dear friends whom I have not seen in awhile but the main purpose is to speak at a couple author events.


I have been a bit discouraged lately with book sales, the abundance of work to do on my next book, and getting speaking engagements. Tough work. I get riddled with doubt. Am I on the right path? What is my deepest desire? Then I remember once again that this has all been moving along because God has shown me how faithful He is and that He is the one who is sovereign and not me. He has it all worked out.

And then "poof!" an offer from a magazine appears, I sell some books and I get a new lead on a speaking engagement. And my Colossians 3:12 Ministries Team does some amazing things. They are the key. Having others around you who work along with you, support you and encourage you is so important.

And as I close in on finishing this next book I am even more excited for its completion. It is going to be so exciting! I already have two of my beta-readers asking for recipes. And I have new examples of folks being helped by others. So great!

Hebrews 10:35-36,"Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised."

Equality in the church
