Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Have you ever had an “Alleluia” moment? I had one Friday night!
I arrived on the struggle bus Thursday morning when our daughter Hannah flew back to college in Colorado. It was hard to see her go. At lunch I ran to the bank to find a service charge on an account and not very friendly customer service. Then to top off my day, I was reprimanded at work for of all things, proofreading! (which ended up being a big misunderstanding)
I began to question God’s calling for me to write. Was I where He wanted me to be? Had I misunderstood? Does He have another path I am supposed to be on? Isn’t it funny how Satan can get in our head and send us in a downward spiral so quickly? And that is when God comes along side me for my Alleluia moment.
I hadn’t been to the Mall of America since last summer, but I needed to go to the Fossil Store to have a new battery put in a watch I had received. Well, there just happens to be a Barnes & Noble directly across from the Fossil Store. I went in the store to look for a book to help get me back on the right path of my spiritual walk. In the Christian Life section there were many books sorted by the authors last name. I dreamed, wouldn’t it be amazing to someday have my book sorted by my last name? And, that is when I saw them! Two copies of my book at Barnes & Noble on the same shelf as Max Lucado and Beth Moore. I was blown away!
Right there in the middle of MOA, God humbled me with an Alleluia moment that I will never forget! God is good and has blessed me far beyond anything I could have imagined when we began this writing journey together!
