What part do you want me to play?

2020 has been quite the year, hasn’t it? While my family has not had COVID, we have been sicker with out of the ordinary illnesses (noncontagious ones) than we have for the past five years. As a result, we haven’t been doing as much and have been resting more.

Even in the midst of resting, I find myself asking, “What part do You want me to play, Lord in all of this?” My biggest job has been to pray. God gave me a specific prayer in March and I have faithfully been praying it, and will continue to pray it over our nation and this situation, until God answers. I have shared that prayer with several people, as God leads, and they are praying along in agreement with me.

Taking care of my family. That is another job God has given me during this season. Spending time with them, taking care of them, and being there when they need me.

Putting my seat in my seat. God told me at the end of 2019 that I was entering into a season of heavy writing. And I have tried to be faithful to obey that calling and write. I finished a nonfiction book in March/April that has been shipped off for consideration with a traditional publishing company. I have edited three fiction books, and I am almost halfway through Book 4 of the six-book series. Then I will start another 3-book series for fiction when I finish the first series.


Those are some of the assignments God has given me this year. What part is He asking You to play as 2020 comes to a close?
