Ask and you will Receive

July 31, 2010

I haven’t done a blog post in quite a while for all the usual reasons. Things like being too busy, writers block, what if I write something and someone doesn’t like it, or blah blah blah. But, I’ve been thinking about it a lot. Wanting to build up my readership. Get some exposure and eventually fulfill my dream to be an author with a shelf or two of books at Barnes and Noble.  Apparently (in New Age terms) that who we call God, decided to help bring my conscience reality in better alignment with my subconscious desires.  It went like this.

I got a Facebook message from my Pastor asking if I would give a brief testimony on “God’s Steadfast Love?” How in a time in your life when you experienced stress or doubt and were blessed by God’s love. I figured I could do that. It probably won’t be what you expect but it’s my story so I’ll me telling it my way. I might even have something already written up. So I mentally went through my inventory and came up with something that would work. I replied that I had something I could read in church. While rereading it, it occurred to me that this short story would be a great blog post.

The Barnes and Noble thing hasn’t happened yet, but tomorrow, after having read my story at church, I’ll have a new blog post.

I asked, I received.
