I was waiting for perfect, but it never showed up. So I decided I’d better start the journey without it. I thought I needed to be the perfect Christian, wife, mom, have the perfect family, and coin the perfect phrases. Then I’d have something to say. Then God could use my writing. I mean, who am I?
But it’s not about who I am; it’s about…
I’m delighted to share my devotional, Waiting for Perfect, published on Inkspirations Online with you! Inkspirations Online is award winning author and speaker, Tina Yeager’s website which offers encouragement and inspiration for writers through Christian devotions. While Inkspirations Online’s target audience is writers, I believe much of their content offers takeaway for all creatives and those who need a little encouragement as they pursue God’s will for their lives. Please consider sharing her site, (and mine too) 🙂 with any it may encourage.
Waiting for Perfect, was originally published on my site almost three years ago. I updated it a bit and converted it into a devotional article for Inkspirations Online. I pray it blesses you.
Please forgive me for not yet posting the final article in my series of interviews with pastors and wives. I am receiving treatment for an impinged nerve in my neck which is inflamed causing pain and numbness extending down my entire right arm and hand, thus greatly impeding my ability to type—especially when editing a large article. I know, this happened last year at this time too. But I do not plan on making this drama an annual event. I’m hoping to resolve the issue this time via physical therapy, and by updating my habits, work stations and writing equipment to minimize irritation. I am working on the final interview article which features missionaries and will post it as soon as I am able. Then I’m throwing myself a celebration! I would greatly appreciate your prayers for a quick recovery and to catch up on all my writing projects. Thank you for your patience.
