THE NEXT BOOK:

Book Four is still coming along well. I am nearing the home stretch and expect the first draft to be completed in the next month or so! The Val and Selena chapters are now caught up with the rest of our favorite characters and I’ve shifted back to Maddy and Jonas for the time being. I’m still surprised at how quickly it’s been going! It’s still a good ways off, but I’m looking forward to completing the first draft and beginning end yhe hardest part of editing and publishing.

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, which enable 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.

Continued blessings upon all of your writing endeavors. Remember: “The world does not need more Christian literature. What it needs is more Christians writing good literature.” — C. S. Lewis

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

(Romans 8:28 NASB)

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)

Tempted to Surrender

“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.” -Harper Lee

This is a rehash of a post from several years ago, yet the message remains very relevant today. In light of everything that is happening in our world, I figured some encouragement is warranted. So, here are a few quotes to encourage you and help you persevere through the difficult times. Remember that great and admirable accomplishments were always achieved by taking one step at a time. Trust in God’s plan and He will see you through.

“A bend in the road is not the end of the road…Unless you fail to make the turn.” -Helen Keller
“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Everyone has noticed how hard it is to turn our thoughts to God when everything is going well with us… While what we call ‘our own life’ remains agreeable, we will not surrender it to Him. What, then, can God do in our interests but make ‘our own life’ less agreeable to us, and take away the plausible sources of false happiness?” -C. S. Lewis

“Disappointment is inevitable. But to become discouraged, there’s a choice I make. God would never discourage me. He would always point me to himself to trust him. Therefore, my discouragement is from Satan. As you go through the emotions that we have, hostility is not from God, bitterness, unforgiveness, all of these are attacks from Satan.” -Charles Stanley

“And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:4-6‬ ‭NASB

“and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:20‬ ‭NASB
