In the world's perspective, often we are told there are two types of people. Those who make things happen and those who wonder what happened.
Lately, I'm in the second camp - and glad of it. A recent devlelopment in my writing career has left me both shaking my head in a state of befuddled humilty and lifting it in a prayer of gratitude.
Seems all the while I've been plodding along, meeting deadlines, keeping my eye peeled for writing opportunities, saying yes whenever I believed God's leading, and no when not, He has been preparing an opportunity for me beyond my imagining. In a way, I guess I have been making things happen by remaining faithful to my craft and calling -- even when it's been frustrating and tedious. But that's as far as I'll go in taking credit for what God has been preparing all along.
In looking back over the chapters of my writing career, I'm confident I am the right person for the job, but still humbled by the possibilities of this new opportunity, and thankful for and to the individual who offered me it.
Stay tuned and I'll keep you posted when the time is right.
