God’s Little Surprises

God’s Little Surprises

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had as my summer goal, to find a reader to read my God’s Little Miracle Book ( I, II, & III). I hadn’t done anything toward attaining that goal. It was like I was in a holding pattern.

On a Friday night I was up half the night unable to go to sleep. When this happens, I often get up to write my prayers. This night I felt the Lord telling me to lay down my plans. I didn’t know what those plans were, but I obeyed.

The next morning I hauled out of bed to get to the 9:00 a.m. prayer meeting at church. After the prayer meeting, a girl I had only met a couple of times at that meeting said to me, “I just love to listen to you read.”

No one had ever said that to be before. I don’t feel I read well. Was I to read my own books?

She said with a laugh, “You look like you’ve just seen a mountain.”

“I have,” I replied. The thought of recording those books myself was overwhelming.

Quickly I said, “A recording studio is very expensive. Sixty-five dollars an hour, at least.”

“Oh, that’s no problem. I have some friends who have a recording studio.”

Was this some kind of conspiracy? Did God really intend me to read? I gave her my card so she could give it to her friends.

I didn’t hear from anyone by the next Thursday when I was at the library. I checked out their new MakerSpace that has a sound-proof recording booth for–free! All I had to do was make a reservation online as if I was reserving a study room and I was in.

On Friday, a blog I read regularly had an article about recording your own book.  Just in case I missed it, a good friend sent the same article to me. Everywhere I turned His will kept popping up.

It’s a new learning curve for an old dog, but given enough time and the help of the Lord, I’ll get these tracks down. Then I can upload them to Amazon ACX and those books will be available for those too sick or blind to read. Hopefully, this work will strengthen and encourage them.

I never cease to be amazed at God’s plans that are far above and beyond anything I could dream up or imagine!

God’s Plan

God’s Plan

God has a plan for every day of our lives. He tells us in Psalm 139:16b, “. . .in Thy book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.”

When we pray, “Give us our daily bread,” we are asking for the tools, the gifts, the wisdom, to accomplish the tasks He has set aside for this new day. Every morning is a new adventure; a new discovering of His mercies reserved for that day.

Go in His power and might that you might glorify His name in all the earth.

This past weekend I attended the Heart of America Christian Writers Network Conference here in Kansas City. One of the activities we enjoyed was a drama by Karen Morerod. She portrayed Queen Esther from the Bible from the book of the same name.

Queen Esther saved her Jewish people from annihilation. Her uncle told her God placed her in the palace “for such a time as this.”

I wonder if each of us are aware we too, are placed by God where we are in this time and place in history for such a time as this. Each of us has a part to play, every day, in His grand plan.

How has He made you aware of your role?
