...writing is hard work. And I need to put some hard work into the book I'm currently writing. So I've cancelled my plans for tomorrow and am going to stay home and be productive. I'm hoping to finish the rough draft of the last chapter in the morning and then start looking at the book as a whole in the afternoon.
I could use your prayers--for focus, for creativity, for inspiration, for guard against distraction. But most of all, for whatever I write to be what God wants me to write. Because it's not about me at all.
At Bible study yesterday, Beth told this story about Corrie Ten Boom and what she thought of receiving so much applause wherever she went. Her response was something along these lines: "Do you really think the donkey thought all the shouting was for him when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday?"
So I pray that Jesus is glorified in whatever ends up on the page. Because I am just a donkey!
