It is 3:00 am on a Wednesday morning, normally I am deep in sleep. That is not the case at this moment. I had no intention of writing this late/early, normally my writing would be done well before this hour. The reason why I am writing at this hour is crystal clear. I used that traditional time doing what I wanted to do. After my time of fun. I started to go to bed but even before i got my head anywhere near a pillow God knocked on the door of my heart saying “you have a message to deliver.” Before I could make any excuse I felt a surge of energy washing away any sleepiness that had set in. I am being held accountable.
I have been writing MCD on and off since 2014. From the beginning God directed me to publish a devotion everyday. I started out strong, even published a book. However as time passed I began to bargain with God. Going from everyday to when I felt like it. I am amazed that those of you that have been with me from the beginning are still with me on this journey. When I started writing I made a promise to myself that every book, every poem, every devotional, every world of life that God placed in me will be poured out on this earth. To leave this planet with anything with in me is unacceptable. You may say “you are being hard on yourself” I don’t see it that way.
If all of my writing is just for one soul and that one soul draws nearer to God, then my mission is accomplished, but how can that soul be reached if I don't pour out what God has placed in me. “God’s word will not return void” I laugh at myself, looking back and thinking I out negotiated God and not the schedule. Here I am publishing written devotions on the weekdays and a podcast on saturday. At the end of the day it's not about me but me being available and a willing vessel.
Much Love & God Bless
