And what about us?

I discovered this fact from Nova yesterday on social media: Nearly 90% of all deep-sea species shine from within. image

Reading this begged the question, what about the human species? If 90% of deep-sea creatures are equipped with light to traverse the darkest depths of the sea, what about us humans? We need a light! We need light to see our way in dark places. We need light to energize our bodies and nourish our bones. We need inner light to propel us forward with hope when uncertainties abound. From whence cometh our light?

“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.”
Psalm 119:105

“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of Life.” John 8:12

You’re a writer, so write.

IMG_1057These were my thoughts when I awoke this morning. On the threshold of my first book release, coming soon to your favorite eReader, there is a lot I want to say… I’ve already said so much.

To the countless women I’ve mentored in person and through my blogging over the years. To the audiences I’ve spoken to from pulpits to conference rooms, to living rooms and every coffee shop in between. When it wasn’t the trend to showcase one’s every move on YouTube or social media… I wrote, I spoke, I taught.

To the numerous circles of warm-hearted prayer groups holding hands with heads bowed. To all the folks at the retreats and conferences where I presented. To the couples and families I’ve counseled, passing tissues to dry tear-stained cheeks. Sharing laughter over progress made and saying “good-bye” when they were strong enough to go it alone. I speak, I lead, I share, I teach, I write.

So when I awoke this morning thinking, how shall I let them all know I’ve written a book. A book they may find useful in the next leg of their life’s journey. A book written to inspire the reader to daily reach for wholeness from the inside out. A book that challenges the reader to think. Before the television news, before your first meetings of the day, before your mind races out of the gate and becomes too cluttered to still… I write.

Coming soon!
