You haven’t seen me around for a few weeks. I HOPE (please tell me–somebody missed me!!) you noticed 🙂
One of my New Years Resolutions for 2014 was to write on my blog at least 3 times each week. So far…I’m a failure!
ooopps..there it goes again…STINKING THINKING!
The truth is, all my words, pretty much all my extra time and energy over the past few months—AFTER moving into our new house at the end of January followed by moving into a new office…has gone into the completion of one new book (to be released by Baker Books in July!) and the writing of another book (to be released by Baker Books in early 2015). You will hear SO MUCH about hose over the next few weeks I will spare you for now!
My first NEW BOOK was finalized just this week and my 2nd NEW BOOK is due to the publisher on JUNE 1.
Say it with me—-JUNE 1!
Let me say it another way—
in 17 days I have to have a GREAT BOOK, that somebody WANTS TO READ,
and that will MAKE A DIFFERENCE in that readers life,
that will HONOR MY PUBLISHER
and most of all HONOR GOD!
OK, now I can’t breathe.
This is the deal. I am writing a book based upon Psalm 139 and my woman’s conference Imagine Me…Set Free (BTW–now would be a GREAT TIME TO BOOK ONE FOR YOUR CHURCH NEXT SPRING! (shameless self promotion :)) In my book I am writing about our thoughts and how we MUST keep our thinking lined up with God’s thinking. The bad news is, I am writing to myself!
Over the past weeks as my deadline has loomed closer, this is a glimpse into some of my stinking thinking….
How in THE WORLD do you THINK, YOU, of all people can write a great book?
You are just an OK writer…not a great writer. Think of all those REALLY GREAT writers you love!
The reason this book is moving so slowly is you are so undisciplined (another chapter I have to write).
There are people and things out there that you should be helping! You are not a good person!
How can YOU write about FREEDOM after that conversation you had last week? You are not FREE in every area yourself!
Nobody is going to READ your book. Who ARE YOU anyway?
and on….and on…and on….
The truth is, those words are all lies. That is how the enemy keeps us stuck–He lies to us and we believe him.
I have learned over the years that the more my thoughts start to stink, the more TRASH I have let build up that needs to be DUMPED!
I know better. I have learned to spot the enemy of my life, who is a LIAR, and kick him in the booty with the TRUTH of God’s Word!
In my next post I will share 6 VERY SIMPLE STEPS to Dumping that Stinking Thinking and Smelling Gooooood!!!
In the meantime, will you be on my prayer team? If you have read this, I am believing that you are one God has called to pray me through these last 2 weeks.
Please tell me so in the comments and I will send you an email prayer list! Thank you SO MUCH!
In His Grip!
