My most awesome family packed me up for the weekend, and sent me down the drive to our single bedroom bach which has only just had the power turned on for this occasion (the first time it has been on in a year!). Stephen could tell words were bursting
in my head, and I was ready to pour them to paper with the first few chapters of the prequel.
WHAT FUN IT HAS BEEN!!!!
For 2 full evenings and days I have holed up in there, nibbling when hungry, crying when overwhelmed, and typing flat-tack
on this laptop - all equalling the most satisfying, God-driven push into this book I needed.
At 20,000 words already and five chapters full, my eyes are blurry and head is spinning from the deep concentration. Whispering fears mock me for trying again,
and let me know that I can help no one with my 2nd gift to A21 Campaign - but GOD IS STRONGER!
Jesus turns my face to Him, and reminds me that I will never know but He will. It is more than enough.
If anyone feels called to pray for God's
singlular pressing force over the forming of words in this new novel, please, I need it so much.
After such a long build up in forming the outline, I feel stunned over and over how God has changed the story to suit His will already, and
it is so much better!!
I love this time! It is raw and desperate and needy, and full of absolute trust and the rushing high that comes from walking on water. Pray for me?
