“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Today I accomplished something I wasn’t sure would have ever been possible. I have spent about a year writing a book. My “Work in Progress” has been just that, a work in progress. I have had days when I thought of giving it up and days when I couldn’t stop writing.
My idea of what I wanted it to look like was not God’s idea so there were many times when I felt the old writers block. I knew what the story needed to say but I couldn’t get the words onto paper. It wasn’t until I surrendered my writing to God’s desire and words that things would flow again.
The story is about returning to God but I wanted it to be greater than what God wanted it to be. I had amazing ideals for the number of chapters and the number of words but what I didn’t take into consideration was His ideals.
God is able to make His point with fewer words than we can and that is just what He did.
I am pleasantly surprised at what has been birthed out of my surrendering and obedience to God. I cannot wait to share it with others. If you would like updates on how it is going, you can visit my website at www.sarahjaneho.com or my Facebook page.
In the meantime, remember His plans are greater than ours and He has our path planned just follow His lead.
