It's another #writerwednesday and today I'm sharing what's going on in my corner of the world. I have fallen behind on deadlines and I'm not too happy about that. But...I haven't been slacking off, I've been doing a lot of things, all of which I'm excited about.
I have written another play for my church, which interestingly enough will be performed before the original play I wrote for the church. It's turning out that this play is the prelude to the first one both with similar, powerful messages. They are both geared to the heart of the woman and who we are as women and our impact on our families and the world at large.
The ladies and I have been meeting weekly to practice for the upcoming women's conference and it's been such a blessing. I'm believing the Lord will do a wonderful work through these women and in this play and I'm excited about seeing it come to fruition. I also will be sharing a poem for the first time that I have written entitled "Sweet."
The play that we're about to perform is "Broken Woman, Merciful Grace." My first lady shared with me that she wanted healing among women. We often walk around with our masks on depicting this image to society of who we want to be perceived as. Unfortunately, we fail to deal with our real issues and it prevents us as women from connecting on a deeper level.
I have also been working on a devotional with LiyahAmore Publishing. This particular project definitely has me in an arena that's new to me. I will say that it's growing and shaping me in ways that I did not see before. But we know that His plans are not ours, so I'm following the way He leads me to see what the end will be. I'm enjoying what He's doing and I must admit I'm a bit nervous as well.
I'm still working on my other projects: preparing to release the final book in The House of BeJeweled series to the public; finishing "A Woman's Redemption," which is the sequel to A Woman's Afflictions (which isn't released); and still blogging here, at LiyahAmore Publishing, and AmoreSpeaks.
None of this touches on my role as a wife, mother, career woman, and so forth. But our Heavenly Father is doing new things in the writing arena for me and I'm tackling a lot of firsts as you can see. Out of the confusion I once lived in, He is bringing light and clarity to my path. I will obediently follow.
"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19
It's all about pursuing our dreams. I tell you again and again we get this one shot. We've got to make the most out of the gifts and talents He places on our lives. We aren't to hide them away and shy away from the world. Instead, we're supposed to do just the opposite: "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14. Our gifts and talents are to be used to glorify Him, and inspire others to live their best lives. I pray that I can do that in the simplest ways.
If we are faithful to do what we are called to do then He offers us a promise. "A man’s gift [given in love or courtesy] makes room for him. And brings him before great men." Proverbs 18:16 AMP
What's going on in your writing world/dream world? Are you allowing your gifts to make room for you?
