Are We There Yet? This was the title of my first book. It was written in the first grade and the only copy of it was lost long ago. But I remember the words like they were yesterday. When I was a kid, every summer we’d travel for days to visit my grandpa in Oklahoma. I’d curl up in the floorboard, because my older sister would be stretched out on the backseat and my legs would cramp forever.
Finally, just when I couldn’t take it anymore. We’d arrived at the hotel.
My first book is now published and I ask myself am I there yet?
In II Timothy, which is the last epistle of Paul, he wrote: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:” Then he was martyred. Right? Wrong!
Paul kept working after he wrote those famous words. He gives Timothy a list of things he needs. His cloak, books, parchment. He said bring Mark with you, because he is profitable for the ministry. Until Paul’s last breath, he preached the gospel.
My novel, Whatever He Wants is a redemption story that portrays the message of the cross, the power of the Holy Ghost and the love of our Heavenly Father. I have finished writing and publishing, but I’m not there yet.
What good is a message if no one hears it? So I pray Lord, give me strength, wisdom and perseverance to market and distribute the work you’ve called me to.
