Sometimes, discouragement tries to get the better of me. Self-doubt reigns high.
Last Wednesday, I had such a day. I pushed myself all day to stay the course with my writing, in spite of the nagging thought – this isn’t any good. Who wants to read this? There’s so many great authors and stories out there.
Enter Thursday morning. I found an annonymous thank you note in my mailbox that told me to continue to shine the light of Christ in the world. Wow!
Then, I had an unexpected visitor within a day. We had a wonderful conversation about allowing the Holy Spirit to work through our lives. He affirmed via a text that he saw that in me. Wow #2.
To complete the gratitude adjustment, I opened my e-mail to an invitation to present for a group in early January. Wow #3.
Within twenty-four hours, three unrelated things gave me a boost to stay the course.
I’m grateful to the God winks that came at the exact time I needed it. And I’m thankful.
