So much has happened.. The whole of 2018, New Year, Easter, Turned 25 and oh yeah.. I published a book! (Shocked Face)
I know I can’t believe it as well, looking back on all my previous blog posts over the last two years, I can see how writing this blog gave me the confidence I needed to write a book.
I’m not ready to go through the entire process of publishing with you but it wasn’t easy.
I have so much to say.. so much has changed.. and I’ve changed but my love for writing hasn’t.
A friend of mine said at church on Sunday that ‘your assignment brings you fulfilment.’ Or something along those lines.. I’m paraphrasing.. I know this book is part of a bigger picture.. even though I can’t see it now… the reviews people have written prove that.
If I’m honest, being an author is still surreal.. but I haven’t come to brag.. I want more than that.. I want the people who are reading this to connect on a deeper level.
I’m still on this journey we call life, by the grace of God of course… and I don’t ever want to deceive people into thinking I’ve got it all together because I haven’t.
These days I just want prosperity of my soul. How I feel inside is what matters most to me.
Most days I don’t have a clue where I’m going or what I’m doing.. I’m just going with the flow of things. I just tell myself it’s ok to be 25 and not have everything I want.. do you know why?? Because by Gods Grace I’ll be here for at least another 60 years.. so there’s so much more to look forward to.
If I got everything I wanted all at once.. then I wouldn’t need to have Hope right? Because we hope for what we do not have.
Which leads me to the title of this post. Getting over myself.
Do you ever get to a point where you just get over yourself…
You’re tired of feeling sorry for your self.
The same story.
Why’s my life so hard?
Why am I struggling?
Why am I not where I want to be?
Why me? Whine whine whine..
Don’t you ever get tired of hearing that voice in your head??
That’s how I felt on my way home today.. then suddenly I had an epiphany.
I need to get over myself.
I need to start caring about others.
I need to intercede for others.
I need to stop thinking.. me, me, me all the time it’s no wonder I’m so miserable, my happiness is based solely on me.
So I’m going to change that.
I’m going to actively pursue ways I can help other people.
Starting with praying for others.
I’m sure God is tired of my selfish prayers by now.
Worrying about my life is getting me nowhere… I might aswell make myself useful.. whilst I’m here.
So please.. message me any prayer requests you have. I would love to pray for you and see God move mightily in your life.
Thanks for reading!
