It's been so long. Seven months since I've opened this page. A part of me wants so badly to start blogging again and the other part of me fights against it--warning me how little time I will have if I do.

But there's so much to tell. So many ways God is working in my life. I don't want to share it only in the confines of my journal or the little I do on Facebook.

It's been so long. Six years this August since my life changed and I began to believe in Satan's lies that only bad will happen anymore and that I should always be afraid.

I'm not sure where to begin. Again.

A new home? Writing news? Friendships?

I did say I would write again when I had writing news to share. I finished my last book and have started the querying stage. And of course, I've started a new one--finally realizing what genre I need to write in. That's not what you expected by now, I'm sure.  That day is coming. It has to as I haven't given up.

Life is full of changes. Seems like the good ones are starting to come more than the bad ones lately. When I stand back and see how God has kept me in his hand all these years, I am amazed. And that's what I want to share.

When I do, I also want to share this: I have become a lukewarm Christian and I don't like it anymore. Change me Lord.

Oh, I'm so happy that your life is starting to change from cold and grey to brighter, warmer colors! A testimony to how much the Lord loves you, and that Satan cannot win! YES!

Yeahhhhhh, Terri. So happy to see your post. I know blogging takes precious time but it's JOY time. We need to give ourselves joy, right? Keep posting! Even once in awhile! Susan

I'm glad you posted! And glad to hear that things are going well. I post regularly on my blog (not as much as before) but I hardly ever go around visiting and commenting like I always used to do. Just happened to this morning and caught your post :)

Change is the stuff of growth, friend. I'm in the midst of change as well . . . seems as if a never-ending cycle for me.

I know God is near you and will be faithful to provide for you at every turn. Of this I am certain.

Have a great day.

Welcome back! Congrats on finishing your book, and good luck with the query process. Keep writing! The Lord is at work in your life!!

"Change me, Lord" prayed from the heart is NOT a prayer that will go unanswered! It's also an attitude that will get the attention of the enemy of our "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings." (2 Peter 5:8-9)

Glad to see you back here. Blogging is a nice way to get a more full update on our friends' lives.
I think we all go thru times when we ask the Lord to restore our JOY. *hugs*

Oh, now that's a prayer He'll honor. It may be painful, but so far beyond worth it.

Bless you, my friend!
