A year ago to the day I wrote the post below. We have just had to put in an order for another 200 ‘All God’s Stones’ books to be printed.
“Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.…”
Ten years ago my sister gave me the book The Serenity Prayer by Trevor Hudson for my birthday:
The following was inscribed inside:
DEAR NOEL, HAPPY 41ST BIRTHDAY. WRITE YOUR BOOK! LOTSA LUV M.A. THIS IS A BOOK FOR THOSE MOMENTS
I never dreamt that ten years after receiving this book, my second book All God’s Stones would be published and that Trevor Hudson would write the foreword for it!!
Trevor Hudson has written many books. I have read the majority of them and have quite a few filed on my book shelves. The Serenity Prayer, however, stays on my desk within easy reach because I refer to it often. This book has brought a far greater understanding of God’s love and His power to restore broken lives, into my life. In the book Trevor Hudson states:
Each one of us has been created with and given certain gifts. These have been placed in us by our Creator God and they represent our unrepeatable uniqueness. God’s general will for our lives is intimately linked with this giftedness.
As a poster once proclaimed: “Who we are is God’s gift to us, who we become is our gift to God”
I was honored and humbled when Trevor Hudson agreed to read my book and to write a foreword. It was such an amazing gift from God (and Trevor) to me. In Isaiah 43:4 God says “…you are precious and honored in my sight, and I love you…”
In Isaiah 30:18 it says “the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!”
I am such a blessed child of God and my prayer is that I, in turn will be a blessing to others and to God. That God will use my books as he has used Trevor’s books to bring comfort and understanding into lives that long to be touched by HIM.
I am a child of God’s.
I am also a writer.
Mother Teresa once said “I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world”.
My objective is to be one of God’s love letters to the world. I can only achieve this through His grace at work in my life.
Through His grace, God will help us to become the person He created us to be.
