Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23
My journey in 2016 involved publishing my devotion book and then trying to sell it. As an unknown author without name recognition or an agent, not too many people are showing up and beating down the door. No long lines such as at a Joyce Meyer or Sean Hannity signing or even my brother in arms, wounded warrior and Dancing With The Stars Finalist Noah Galloway, whose book 'Living With No Excuses' was recently published and he has gone on tour with his publishing company.
Whatever it is in life you do, do it for the Lord not man. Period. There may never be a parade, a best sellers list, a trophy, a street named after you, or people clamoring for your autograph when they see you in public places. I'm okay with that and for whatever you hope to accomplish you should be as well.
Your journey should never be about fame but about seed planting for the Lord. No matter if you sit for hours with not one person buying a book or even the slightest 'nibble' one friend said my smile could be a beacon for a Jesus. Are you being His beacon regardless? Shine on and don't lose hope. Stay home moms often despair over not being important. Oh my goodness, you are the most important person ever. Press on.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord for just where you gave me in my journey of life. No matter what I do I will shine for you. Help me plant lots of seeds. In Jesus' name. Amen.
