It's Time...

Time to break through writer’s block.

I’ve tried waiting until there was a post good enough. 

I give up and want to write more than I want a good post.

The last time I broke through writer’s block,

the Lord showed me the two things necessary:

Humility and Transparency.

By His grace I walk through those doors again…

It's Time.

I apologize for not writing for so long.  I hope what I am about to write will be a blessing and encouragement for you to trust God's timing and working in your own life!

I have a “God story” to share!

In January, a friend told me about a job opening.  I had my resume sent over and got hired.  The attorney I started working for explained that their main office was in a nearby town, and they had recently opened another office.

He apologized that there wouldn’t be a lot to do other than “be there and answer the phone.”  It was only 3 hours a day, 4 days a week.  He even said it was okay for me to bring my laptop and work on my blog if I wanted. 

So I started there in January and it was unlike any job I ever had.  I was free to simply write posts or read a book.  This went on until one morning in late February, I got the call telling me that another lawyer had bought the building and that it was the last week they would need me. 

I was completely taken off guard.  Even though I thought it wasn’t much of a job, somehow I believed that the Lord had me there for a reason and that it would eventually turn into more hours as the business grew. 

Here’s a peek at what I wrote that day:

Well, that’s kind of what I did! Ha ha.  The new lawyer walked in on my last day working for the other lawyer, and I joked and told her “I come with the building!”

She looked at me and smiled and laughed.  Then she said she really could use some help! (She remembered interviewing me four years ago right after I finished college.) Two weeks later she called me to come to work! Now we still laugh about the way I told her I came with the building.

It really is neat how God had me in position to get the job.  I’ve been working for the new lawyer two months and we are both happy with how it worked out. 

Not only that, but I'm beginning to understand why the Lord placed me in this particular law office….

We handle a lot of cases on behalf of juveniles whose parents struggle with substance abuse.  I have already been given the opportunity to share with one of those parents how there is hope for complete deliverance through Christ.  I also shared the Reformers Unanimous website.

The Lord really has me on the “front lines”.  Many of our cases are the result of addiction and its effect on our culture.  It is so sad to see the number of families being destroyed through addiction. 

I think of the words from the Book of Esther…

...and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
— Esther 4:14b

I am praying for these kids and their parents and will continue sharing hope whenever possible.

Not only has God placed me where I can know specific families to be praying for, but I’m also thankful to be working for someone who is a Christian and believes in God’s power to deliver.

If the Son therefore shall make you free,
ye shall be free indeed.
— John 8:36

Well, I think I’ve done it!

Broken through writer’s block! 

I’m not even going to worry about whether this is “good enough” to post.  It’s just what I have to share and I appreciate you taking the time to read it! 

Stay tuned for more…

I’m praying the Lord will lead me to write the words that will encourage you and bring Him glory.  

Remember, God is sovereign over even the smallest details of life.  He sees the big picture.  We can trust Him!!
