You guys, oh my word. I have been excited to tell you something, but I haven’t been able to find a way to describe the humility and awe I’m experiencing over This Thing.
Now, you’re not reading the blog of a new Oscar nominee, or the latest Nobel prize winner. I didn’t even win the lottery. (Just in case I need to lower you’re expectations…)
But in my nerdy little way, this was a big deal. Because it was sweet confirmation that I wasn’t (altogether) crazy for giving up my career to do this writing stuff.
I am just amazed over and over again at God’s faithfulness. It’s like, yeah…go figure. He really does prove faithful. Every. single. time. In big things and little things. And it makes me laugh, even to type that out…because each time he comes through, I am filled with awestruck wonder, as though his trustworthiness is a brand new thing for me.
And if you don’t read any further than this today, you have to hear this loud and clear. (Now that I think about it, imagine hearing this in my high-pitched-excitement voice.)
Wherever, whenever, and however God leads you, you can KNOW beyond a shadow of doubt that he will come through in a way that will leave you speechless.
So here’s the deal, I was chosen as a finalist for Living Well Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life’s #Secret13 essay contest.
All 12 finalists will be featured for one week on the blog, Living Well Spending Less. And this week was my week! You can see it right here.
I’m not even kidding, when I found out (on Tuesday morning) that my post was selected, I cried. A lot. Actually I cried so much, that when I called Larry to tell him about it, he thought I said “they picked my pocket” instead of “they picked my post.”
(Does he really think I would speak in 18th century-like language if I was just robbed?)
Anyway, that’s all I dropped in to say today. I hope you’ll go read that story…and be encouraged to believe God is better than anything you seemingly “lose”…and that he will never drop the ball.
See you next week.
