Chiseled by God


I thought about everything that happened this week and I've decided to continue writing. Maybe I do need to revise and redraft my third novel, "To Love without Hope". I'm not really excited about it, but I will work on it. And to say that my novel has almost sold 400 copies on the Nook, I'm really amazed and happy about it. That one bad review won't kill my chances.

My best friend gave me this youtube video called "God's Chisel", which is by these two guys that calls themselves "The Skit Guys". I was reminded from this video that I am a masterpiece created by God; He doesn't make mistakes. Sometimes, in our lives he is chiseling away the parts of us that are keeping us from him. When I look in the mirror, I don't see God... I see myself, when I should see God, His creation. For too long I've believed that I'm junk, but God doesn't make junk. When God is chiseling the dead weight out of our lives, it can be painful. It was really good.

I'm not giving up my dream to write, it just might be harder than what I originally imagined. God will never give up on me and I won't give up the gift that He gave me; to write.
