"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Surrendering My Never - At Exemplify

We're all supposed to trust God in everything. There's no reason to worry about where He leads us, because He is always there.

But we're all human. We fight our own selfishness every day, and sometimes we get so caught up in our own desires that we decide that we will NEVER do something. I'd venture to say that everyone has had (or even has)something they have decided they will never do.

I had one of these--up until last week, when God asked me a very scary question: “What if this is what I want you to do?”
Stop by Exemplify today, where I talk about this spiritual battle, and how God led me to "Surrender My Never." I pray it will inspire you to do the same--whatever your "never" may be.

  1. Powerful message! I have learned to "never" say "never" or GOD will surely make me do it.
    Blessings, andrea
