Having my Focus reset

Good Day, God!

Oddly enough, Iʻm not embarrassed to be chatting with You in “public” but I am very reticent to talk about the rare occasions when You talk to me. I guess the societal view must have permeated my mind. All of this reminds me of Joan of Archʻs response to the English jailers who said to her, “Itʻs not God! Itʻs your imagination!”

Her reply was classic! “How ELSE would God speak to me except through my imagination!”

Well, that said, God, I will confess that on February 10th I heard a voice (in my head) saying, “Margie! I have something to tell you and I want you to go and write it down!” I got a pad and pen and heard: : “I want you to work every day on your/my stories — every day!

When I asked “how much time?” the response was FIRST TIME — before email and errands and even before visiting your mom. Hmm. I just reread what I wrote down and see that I was told to write the time I spend on my stories on my calendar. Yikes! That means accountability! Yes, it does!

So far I have converted two of my old keynote stories into movies and put them on my webpage. The first one was Never Alone — which is a shortened version of how I coped with Pattyʻs illness and death. And the second one is Honuʻs Heart — which is about how most of us need to be heard into speaking — and if we donʻt speak we “drown in unspoken words.”

Thank You, God, for this command. I love working on my stories. Sometimes I feel they really help explain WHY You command us to do things. And understanding WHY makes me much more compliant.
