It is time for a change.
There have been many changes in my life the past few years. Some not so good and others definitely for the better.
I was prepared to make a change in my writing. As I sat at my computer the thoughts would not come. Distractions lured me away. And I was left with wondering if writing was not meant for me.
God put on my heart a long ago dream to be involved in ministry. He opened doors for me in prison ministry, a ministry in the Dominican Republic and being involved with our church missions team.
With this change in my life I automatically thought I needed to let go of my writing and my past life with husband among other things. As one ministry filled my life something else had to go – or so I thought.
The problem was whenever I thought of deleting my blog something always interfered with my plans. And how can we let go of our lives with someone we shared our life with for 35 years? Who I am today is based on my experiences that span over 50 years. They will always be a part of me just like my life with my husband.
Tonight in my quiet time I stopped talking and started to listen to God. It was not the letting go I was supposed to do – but God wanted me to change. I was headed in the wrong direction.
My husbands death changed me. Life goes one whether we want it to or not. I am now ready to accept this change not only to allow it to define who I am but to have it change my relationship with God by developing a more deepening and enduring faith.
When I signed on to wordpress tonight, I was still a little unsure of the direction I was to take with it. When I entered the page for different themes the very first one “Independent Publisher 2” literally jumped out at me. All I did was click on it to check it out and next thing I know my blog changed. Was it God? Yes! Sometimes God needs to give me a big push. I can be a bit hard headed. As I look back over the past few months, I can clearly see God telling me it is time to not remove my blog but to change it.
So this is the first of a few changes you will see in the next few months.
Change is in the air – change in how I serve God in ministry and in writing.
