So, I sit with this envelope in hand and my fingers to my keyboard once again! “EEK!” That of course, was the first thoughts I had within my mind as I read the words allowed. The words of more and no became embedded into my brain. “EEK!” How on earth did that happen?
I picked up the devotion that I wrote and thought I had written well. Began to read it aloud as the words flowed through my mind. How could they have not loved it? I thought it was brilliant! Yet, once again it was rejected. Anger, was the first thought that I felt as I continued to read the letter.
Then a small still voice kept reminding me “Be still and know that I am God!” The words seemed to charm my intellect. So, I was quick to put my letter down and began to think about the words God had spoken to me. “Maybe, that was why I got rejected.” I thought to myself. Maybe, just maybe, had I listened more intently to His voice I might have written “the best sellers list,” so to speak?
I realized in an instant that I must not give up just because I received a rejection notice. It was an amazing revelation to me that I noticed God’s hand upon my life in an unforgiving moment. Because His hand is upon my life I can rest assured that I can accomplish anything I put my heart to through Him and by Him! Never Give Up! Submit…Submit…Submit… kept beginning to be drilled into my brain again.
I learned I had gain the confidence I so desperately needed to write the words He wanted me to write.
I am His messenger. “EEK!” What an amazing thought? I am His pen to recite the composition Psalm 45:1.
In closing, never give up on the things that God has laid upon your heart to do no matter what it is.
Sometimes, it may seem impossible to accomplish it is with God that all things are possible!
