Now that it’s two months after my birthday, I can look back and see the flipside of these negative thoughts. Lately, I have been working on the novel I’ve always wanted to write (and have published). I have been to several countries in South America, Mexico, Canada, and much of the United States – not to mention some very beautiful Caribbean islands. I do have a master’s degree. God protected me last year from an almost certainly disastrous marriage with a man who never would have been able to love me the way I want (and deserve) to be loved. Besides, as Paul says in 1 Corinthians 7:34 (NLT): “a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be more devoted to the Lord in body and in spirit, while the married woman must be concerned about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband.”
This is what I am concentrating on in my life right now – being completely devoted to God. I am learning more and more what it means to walk in obedience to Him, and this is especially true as I follow His call on my life to write and share my writing with others. He has provided me with so many exciting opportunities to serve Him this year. He has helped me to shift my focus from the past: what I don’t have and didn’t accomplish, to the future: what I can accomplish for Him and through Him. Praise God!
