The Lord really used Kim to minister to me on the phone, in a very dynamic way. She reminded me of her testimony and how she had no idea what the Lord had in store for her. You can read more about Kim and her testimony by visiting her website here.
What I took from our timely talk, was that I should embrace my own journey as a writer and not veer to the left or to the right behind someone else's.
Facebook, Myspace, Twitter... all of these social sites are sweet for networking and marketing. But, it can become a little distracting and borderline discouraging when you constantly see people's status updates, thoughts, goals being accomplished...etc. Know what I mean? You can easily start to feel as if you're not doing too much or like you should be following in their shoes in order to get somewhere.
Well, let me give you a quick newsflash.
Your path is your own! You're not going to make it the same way someone else did. That was a hard pill for me to swallow because I honestly love to learn from others. I'm very teachable and that's very crucial in the writing/publishing industry. However, thoughts, ideas, cares... we should cast them on the Lord (Psalm 55:22).
I also love this scripture in 1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
The Lord doesn't want us to feel anxiety about the road he has designated exclusively for us. When he formed and shaped us in our mother's womb, he did it with a great purpose for us. And the only way we can completely fulfill the set purpose he has destined for us is to get comfortable with our own path.
Be grateful for it
And walk in it!
