Romans 8: 28
God is faithful to his promises. Romans 8: 28 is one of my favorite promises from God. It’s become one of my go-to verses as I’ve taken my life journey with brain tumors and Neurofibromatosis Type 2. When I first started the journey, I couldn’t imagine how God could ever work out the brain tumors for my good.
And yet He did!
Here it is six years later and I still struggle with the effects of the brain tumors but… I have peace and joy. I can still write the stories God gives me.
God is faithful!
Being able to still write is definitely a God thing and such a blessing to me. And one of the stories He gave me is PUZZLE HOUSE. Puzzle House would never have been written if I hadn’t developed the brain tumors because the main character has the same brain tumors and genetic condition (NF2) that I have. PUZZLE HOUSE is up for the Carol Award–the American Christian Fiction Writer’s award for excellence.
How’s that for working things out for my good?
God is faithful!
I would love to win, of course. but I’m sure the other two finalists in my category are just as deserving. I’m sure their books are just as good. I’m sure they’ve worked just as hard to get to this point. Of course, I’d love to win but… winning isn’t everything.
Tonight’s the big night! Where the winners will be announced.
Win or lose, God has blessed me by giving me the dream of being a writer and then the dream becoming a reality.
Win or lose, when Monday comes around I’ll be back at my computer working on my next story.
Win or lose, God will still love me as will my husband, family and friends.
Win or lose, I’m blessed in more ways than I have time or space to talk about.
Win or lose, I know that God is faithful!
So as you can see, God really does work all things out for the good of those who love him.
