Today was just another ordinary day at the writer's conference ... I had my plan and God had His.
Based on input from a friend on something I should write, I was headed to a class on "Writing Non-fiction for Children". I really didn't want to go - nothing wrong with the class, just not "me". But I thought, well, maybe if I went it would spark something inside me. Maybe I'd discover this really is what I want to do.
Then it rained.
Not just a few drops or a light, peaceful rain, but a torrential downpour complete with thunder and lightning. As I stood in building 1 trying to figure out how to get to building 2 without getting soaked, I decided to check out the class list for where I was standing.
Best decision I made today!
A few steps down the hall, I found a class titled "Finding Your Voice as a Writer", taught by a most excellent teacher. The Lord used her words to (1) confirm what I already knew to do (but was not doing faithfully), (2) affirm who I was as a writer and that I did have my voice, and (3) teach me new habits that will add much value to my writing.
Lord, again, thank you for the rain!
Today's Challenge: Are you frustrated by something in your life that seems to be a road block? Is it possible God has a different plan in that area and you can't yet see it?
