A year ago today, God gave me a gift I'd dreamed about for more than half my life.
The gift of being an author.
A year ago today "I Dare You" released for the eyes of the world to see. I typed the words "I Dare You has been released!" onto this blog. My heart and soul on paper became available for people to read. And to be honest, it was one of the most beautiful, amazing, and yet terrifying feelings I'd ever felt.
On that day, June 26, 2015 I had no idea what God was gonna do with this book. I had no clue how He would use it.
All I knew is that He wanted me to publish it and I was going to be faithful to what He had asked of me, no matter what.
A year later, I stand looking back on the incredible journey He led me on.
Not only did I become an author that day but in this past year, God allowed me to release another book too! Wow...
So let me tell you today.
Whatever your dream is, place it in the hands of God and pursue it with Him. Pursue it with all of your heart and glorify Him every step of the way.
Because when you do that, He will do amazing things with it.
It won't be easy, but it'll be worth it in the end.
Holding my published copy of "I Dare You" today is so worth all of the tears, prayers, and frustration. It is one of the most beautiful gifts God has given me.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for encouraging and inspiring me with your comments and feedback. I am so grateful for all of you.
To God be the glory! Great things He has done!
