The Detour

On this blog, I use the tag Where Destiny Takes You for posts. Mostly, I use them for when God is redirecting my life. This last month, I've become aware that God's plans - His destiny for my life - is once again is different than my plans.

As many of you know, I had to take a lot of time off this summer due to a tendon injury. Six weeks with very little writing was hard. I was very excited when it healed and I could get back to writing. This fall has been jammed back getting Kate's Christmas and A Very Bookish Christmas ready for publication. In October, my arm started hurting again. I ignored it until I knew that I couldn't unless I wanted the horrible pain to come back. I canceled my plans to do NaNo and started looking hard at next year.

Writing is something that isn't a chore for me. I love it. It spills out of me and is my therapy, my happy place, and my tears all in one. But, it seems that I'm going to have to take a step back for a while and give my arm a few months to heal.

While this is hard for me on one hand, I'm also excited to see what God is going to do through this time. The next few months, I'm going to study, pick up some old hobbies, hang out with friends, and work on marketing the books I already have.

I would ask for your prayers because this isn't an easy journey for me. However, I hope to bring you with me on this journey. I mean, we all encounter times when all our plans get thrown out the window. but God has better plans for us. Even if we know that fact, it doesn't make it easy, so let's journey together.

  1. I'll be praying for you, Sarah. God has a plan, but sometimes it is hard to know what He's doing. I'm glad you were able to get your two Christmas books done though. :D
