Press on, dear writer!

Dear God, hear my prayer.

Can I testify?

I purchased this cover a year before I even released the book. Why? Because I had intentions to release it in 2017 but God said NOPE! I didn’t understand it and I questioned God. God, haven’t I been faithful? God, what else? God, why me? All the questions I asked the many months I toiled, the many nights I cried and the days of wanting to just throw in the towel.

But I pressed!

Bible says in Philippians 3:12, “Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.”

God shut me down but it was the best thing for me, even when I couldn’t see it because in 2018, I released 7 books with Dear God being my very first full Christian book. I was nervous because it was different from any I’d written previously. This book didn’t have sex and minimal to no cursing. Yet, it has been one of my best sellers.

This book deals with sexual abuse at the hands of a pastor who should have been praying instead he preyed. And while Jayme’s story is one of fiction, this same abuse is happening in houses all across the world but there’s hope. Hope to overcome, hope to press and hope to be restored.

Thank you to everybody who has read it, reviewed it, recommended it and got release through it. I appreciate you. For every email I received, I prayed for you. For every inbox, I covered you.

And to you who seems to be in a season of little to no return … press on! You will recover all! Don’t stop writing, press! Don’t give up, press. Don’t look at the royalty checks, trust in the gift God has instilled in you.

And when it feels too heavy and the enemy is speaking in your ear … I am praying your faith does not fail.
