Well quite a few things have happened around the Donovan house over the past several weeks. And I have gathered a few stories up to share with all of you. I have felt the spirit moving around me and wow does the Lord have some big plans for our family here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage.
Today I want to confess something. I have some anxiety. Actually I’m FREAKING OUT!
It’s unusual for me to get this pent up feeling of fretfulness for a prolonged period of time. But, I have felt it building until just a few days ago. My anxiety stems from the fact that our book will release in six weeks. SIX weeks.
I’m freaking again.
Thoughts in my head roll around something like this:
Will people like it?
Will it help people in their marriages?
Will my husband be mad over some of the content? (I have practically begged the man to read it but he insists he won’t read it until an actual hard copy is put in his hands…. Sheesh) *note: I am blessed that my man really and truly trusts me to share about our lives.
Okay, more thoughts…. Will my publisher be glad they believed in our idea?
So, a week ago, I realized that this angst was rising at a constant pressure and was not going away and so I finally asked God about it. Duh!
“Lord, why am I so nervous about this upcoming event? Why am I so fearful????”
God is alway blunt with me....
“Lynn, why ARE you fearful. Don’t you remember that this is MY book and not yours? Don’t you remember you begged me for every single word on your knees and I gave you each syllable? Lynn, didn’t I place a burning passion in your to write down what I have taught you and now that it’s written you feel released?”
“Oh Lord, my Lord. I remember. This IS Your book. It’s not mine. You have its future, it’s message and you already know each and every women who will ever read it. You hand-picked each one already. Oh forgive me.”
This is an ordinary day in the life of an ordinary woman. Yet it is a day of realizing a dream that is utterly beyond my imagination. This book is a humble love offering to our King.
