Have you been waiting a long time for something to happen in your life? There are many things we do and hope for a quick and easy answer. Just because we want and pray for something, doesn’t mean that God will say yes. Sometimes He says no or not just yet. His timing is always best.
When we moved to Florida five years ago God helped me connect with two writing groups and a conference. I had a manuscript I had been working on and tried desperately to get help in publishing it. No doors were opening. I had encouragement from agents, editors and publishers, saying they liked what I had but, were not able to work with me at that time.
With a recommendation to switch from a children’s picture book to a first chapter book for first through third graders a year and a half ago, I began writing a new manuscript, this is a description of the series: Two time traveling children want to meet the historical figures of the Bible starting with Adam, but in the past they lose their time travel machine. Can they find their way back home before time has changed? Then, can they return to meet another historical figure of the Bible? Read “Bible Characters Through the Ages” the series to share their adventures.
The publisher Write Integrity Press called and is working up a three book contract for:
Bible Characters Through the Ages
- Adam in the Garden
- Meeting Eve
- Watching David and Goliath
Numbers one and two are complete and number three is about half written. I am currently looking for an illustrator. If you would like to submit 3 drawings please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
A couple of other prayer experiences I have had are: I prayed for healing from cancer for my Mom 39 years ago, God’s answer was to bring her home to Him. It wasn’t what I would have liked but, at least she was not living in hell anymore.
Another time I took one of our daughter’s to a healing service at church. She had scoliosis, a curve in the spine. When I took her home she said her back was hot. I lifted her shirt and there was a hot red spot where the spine had been curved, it was completely straight. Praise God, His answer came as a quick and complete healing.
What are your experiences in waiting for an answer from God? Let me know how I can pray for you and your family whether it is for health, finances, a job or something fun.
