WOW — the universal word for wonder. And that’s how I feel in this moment, about where God’s brought me on this writing journey.
This past week, with no formal degree, lots of past mistakes under my belt, and not a single reason I can put my finger on, God is showering me with blessings in regard to my writing efforts. I’m in awe, humbled beyond imagination, and mostly, I stumble around simply saying, “Wow.”
This morning, God sent more wows — the everyday kind. Songbirds to serenade the morning awake, perfumes of spring lilac and wisteria to energize me, a kiss of warm breezes across my forehead, the fresh flavor of Starburst jellybeans, and a landscape of green painted beneath blue skies.
These special touches help me get through the tough times. It takes hard weeks, months, and even years, to see success when you decide to seriously pursue the mysterious world of authorship. Some never succeed at all. That’s why the everyday wows mean so much.
And then there’s someone like me. Unbelievably blessed, unsure why, but knowing that the wonder in my writing is God. He is my WOW!
Don’t forget to invite Him into your art. He is the wonder of writing, or whatever else your heart dares to dream. Any day — every day.
What WOW moments has God traced in your life?
