Don’t tell me what God can’t do.
This is a year of celebration for me because it is the tenth anniversary of me publishing my first book, Spin It Like That, and I’ve decided it will also be a year of me stepping out of my comfort zone, not just with my books, but with my life.
Anyone who knows me relatively well knows that I’ve wanted to write books since I was fourteen years old, and to see that dream come to fruition time and time again is very humbling for me. What many people don’t know is that in 2015 I thought I would never write again. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy writing. It just didn’t seem to fit anymore. As much as I tried to force them, the words just didn’t seem to come. Then one day out of the blue, my author-friend Jacquelin Thomas called me. I can’t even remember everything we discussed that day to be honest with you, and she probably doesn’t even realize how much the conversation impacted me, but I do remember that by the end of the call, I had a renewed energy, and the next morning, I went back to writing. Words just poured out of me. Not only did I write several books, but I started blogging too. My writing dream that I thought had died was revitalized.
I’m sharing this story because I want you to know that God can dream bigger dreams for you than you can ever dream for yourself. Maybe it seems as though your dreams have died or maybe you aren’t even sure if you’ve ever truly had a dream. I’m a living witness that in the blink of an eye, you can gain clarity, and it can change the course of your life. You might not take a straight path to your dream, and I’ve learned that that’s okay. I’ve also learned to trust God and I’m trying to enjoy the journey. I hope you will too.
