Have you ever had something you needed to do, but you had no idea how you were going to do it? That’s been me for a while now.
Recently I was watching a Hallmark movie where the hero was a baseball player. The book that I am currently writing has a former baseball player as the main character. Of course that movie got me to thinking about my own story and how I have no idea what will happen next.
I’m a seat of the pants writer–at least I have been for past couple of books I’ve written. This means I don’t work from an outline, and I write the story as it comes to me. Okay, so back to stressing my story. I didn’t enjoy the movie as much as I normally would because I couldn’t get out of my head that I didn’t know where my story was going to go next. Then I stressed because I had this blog post to write, and I didn’t know what to write here either. My evening went on like this for nearly two hours. By the end of the movie I was completely stressed out.
After the movie I stepped into the kitchen in defeat. Then all of a sudden it came into my head that I didn’t need to know what to write yet. A peace washed over me as I was reminded that the Lord has always given me the words when I need them, and I needed to stop worrying.
Matthew 6:25-34 tells us we don’t need to worry and that it doesn’t do any good.
Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation? I pray that we will all remember that He is always there for us and wants to help us.
Now since this blog is about inspy romance, I had to tag this onto the end of my post. I hope you don’t mind ending on a lighter note.
I have found time to read several books lately. :) Reading is my favorite thing to do, as I suspect it’s yours as well. What’s the last inspirational romance book you’ve read that you would recommend? I have recently read two books by new authors to this blog. Calming the Storm by Melanie D. Snitker and Snow Belle by Jackie Castle. It’s my goal to read at least one book from each of the inspy authors here. I’m getting close. :)
I hope you all have a lovely day, free from worry, and resting in the Peace that passes all understanding.
