Novel News: August 2022

Are you melting yet? Whew!!! Man is it hot! Summer has hit, and the sweltering heat in Texas has consistently maintained triple digit temperatures! Hopefully you are all finding ways to beat the heat, and finding good books to delve into.

To all my faithful readers, grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We praise God for He is good! I want to encourage you all to please remember that through God’s providence we will continue to persevere through any and all of life’s hardships. I pray that by the grace of God, our Father, that we all continue in the our common faith placed solely in our Lord, Jesus Christ. Always remember that no matter what the world throws at you, “He works all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

Also remember: “And He said, “See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not go after them. When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.””

Novel News: July 2022

Wow! Just realized I hadn’t released my monthly post yet! Sorry everyone that this issue of Novel News is so late in coming this month!

Whew!!! Man is it hot! Summer has hit, and the sweltering heat in Texas has consistently maintained triple digit temperatures! Hopefully you are all finding ways to beat the heat, and finding good books to delve into.

THE NEXT BOOK:

Book Four is still coming along well, though June did not allow much time for writing. Still, I am nearing the home stretch and expect the first draft to be completed by the end of July! I’ve reached the final chapter for each of our favorite characters. Not all of them are likely/destined to survive… Surprises are also in store for the kingdom’s inhabitants and the final epic confrontation with dragon has yet to be resolved. I’m still surprised at how quickly it’s been going, and I’m looking forward to completing the first draft and beginning the hardest part: editing and publishing the book.

The war with the dragon has reached the endgame, and all of your favorite characters, whose lives were turned upside down in the last two books, must now make hard choices that will determine how the war will ultimately end.

I really wish to thank all of you out there for encouraging me and even providing feedback from time to time. All of which enables me to make each book better than the last!

So excited as the story really comes together and I look forward to sharing this and other stories with you.

My Last Easter

I was speaking with an older man today, just in passing. As I ended the conversation and took a step to walk away, I said, “I hope you have a happy Easter, celebrating Jesus’s victory over sin and death.” The man replied that he did not believe in God, but would only attend church this Sunday because he followed his wife when she went.

He then turned and walked away. I had wanted to continue the conversation at that point, intending to point out church attendance and proximity to God’s people does not save, but the older man had already turned and walked away.

I instantly felt sadness for this man. He had such proximity to the truth, but the soil of his heart was such that the truth could not take root (Mark 4). I immediately said a silent prayer for the man, wishing in my heart that I could say or do something to persuade him. A sudden fear gripped me that perhaps this might be his last Easter.

Yet if it was true he’d been living with a believer and been exposed to the truth each time he’d attended church with her, I began to wonder what else I could say that might change his heart. And truth be told, we can’t change anyone’s heart. it’s not our job to change hearts…it’s God’s work that changes hearts. As Christians, our job is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We need to share the good news that though were dead in our sin, we can find forgiveness and new life if we would simply place our faith in the death and resurrection of God’s Son. Then allow God to do the rest.

This Easter, share the gospel with someone. Who knows? (Only God knows) Maybe I will see that old man again and have another chance to share Jesus with him.

Good bless you all!

“All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities. Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:6, 11-12‬ ‭NASB

“Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” (Matthew 28:1-7)
