This post was supposed to be about how I have overcome something personal with God’s grace. And this is how I do it -- by trusting God. I pray His will be done and I focus on the blessings in He has given me.
John 16: 33 Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble but take heart! I have overcome the world.”
I’m a writer who likes exclamation points, and I like that there is one used in this verse. Jesus’s words convey one well, and we can believe what he is telling us…take heart! Whatever you are going through, He has gone before you and HE has overcome the world. Walk with Him, and he’ll take you through the fog you may be in right now from grief or anything else you are going through. That is what He does for me. He knows the path, and I strive to let Him lead me.
He knows yours too. Give it to Him. He can handle it! And with His help so can you!
In my new release, Betting On Hope, my hero and heroine both have issues that they are working through, and each are doing it in their own way. But I love my main character Maggie Hope … she writes her advice column using the experiences she’s had in her own background to try and help others and always with a hopeful heart. I strive in my way to do this through my books.
