I'm not scheduled to blog today, but I thought I'd slip in here since CCWC is...like...this week! I sent the following to our local loop yesterday.
Hello Rocky Mountain Zone!
As I'm sitting here in my office, listening to soaking praise music and loving my Lord Jesus, I feel compelled to write to you. The Colorado Christian Writers Conference is a mere two days away, and I know the emotions that swirl on this particular week every year.
First of all, for those who really wanted to go, but it just didn't work out this year, take heart. Put your faith in God and His perfect timing. Every year I hear about people who said they had really wanted to go but it didn't work out for one reason or another. Then afterward they knew why they weren't supposed to be there. Sometimes it was other things happening at home that they needed to attend to. Sometimes God blessed them in other ways regarding their writing careers or other aspects of their lives. At all times, they knew that God had intervened in their best interest. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." ~Romans 8:28 NIV
