(Taken from “Destined for Love” written by the author)
In my early walk with the Lord, I hastened to every anointed meeting I could find and especially looked for ones with good music that honored and loved God. One night, as I stood with all the others, my arms stretched toward Heaven, my body bristled with desire to let God know how much I loved Him. While singing my love from the depths of my being, suddenly, I came back to myself.
“Lord,” I said, “how come I’m giving You all this love, and I don’t feel anything coming back to me? Here I am, my fingertips straining to caress You, my arms desperately reaching for You, and my body swaying with the music in the delight of loving You. My love for You feels like a freight train rushing up from my toes and racing into Heaven to deliver carload after carload of love. And from You there is nothing. Why is that?”
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
