Have you ever waited a long time for a dream to come true, only to eventually start to lose hope? I started writing Consuming Fire thirty-one years ago, revised it ~17 times, and finally my son/partner and I published the final version on Amazon.com earlier this year. We hired a PR agent in NYC and immediately landed my first interview, on live TV, no less, and two radio interviews — one from Sacramento, CA and one in Ocala, FL. We also got a great book review (check for links in previous blogs). I thought we were on our way!! Then, nothing! That’s right, nothing happened after that! Bottom line: it’s not fun to walk through the desert with no oasis in sight. But I’ve come to the conclusion that this is what real faith is all about… trusting & believing God has plans for your future & is working things together for your good, even when there’s no evidence to encourage you. And I just can’t be at peace unless I’m trusting and believing in my Savior. After all, who else loves us enough to die for us and never forsake us — even though He knows us so well? Don’t know where all this is heading or when it will get there, but I know Who’s in charge and with Him, all things are possible!! Keep believing & keep on keeping on!
