Trusting the Lord
I've been thinking on how to write this post for over two weeks. I have had several things happen to me during the past three weeks which have funneled my mindset to putting my faith a little more in my Heavenly Father.
What if I get rejected by an agent? Or by a senior editor that requests unagented manuscripts? What then? I tremble with the thought!
I know this for sure--if it is rejected, it is not meant to be. My Father in Heaven has something else in mind. And that something else is always better. He knows what is best for me.
Just as with everyday life, when we find ourselves drowning in our dregs, what better cure than service? This can be applied to our writing.
For now, I have lost my muse. She has gone on a long vacation. I prayed about it. I have fasted over it. I have asked for Priesthood blessings.
I received an answer.
I can help others with their writing and finish my editing course. It's okay to set aside my creating for now, though it makes my heart drop. I must trust the Lord and follow Him.
I know He as something in mind for me.
How do you cope with rejection? Muse negligence? Even required rewrites!
