In the summer of 1995 I began writing, “If You Send Me, I Will Go”, well, actually it was entitled, “Back From Crack”, then “If You Send Me, I’ll Go”. I had to take out the contraction because the software I was using couldn’t place the apostrophe properly, but I liked the way it turned out, “…I will go”. It sounds more determined and concise and that’s the point I want to have in my life, to be more determined and concise in what I do. This is the same with God.
No matter how long it takes, He has a plan for your life which will come to a successful conclusion. Fourteen years to write and publish a book was not delayed because of anything on my part, my constant relapses, etc. He knew when He gave me the idea to write and the date when it would be published. I just didn’t know it. There is nothing He starts He doesn’t finish.
Now, as I sit and wait for the first delivery, I have no idea of how to go about marketing it. I have no idea of where this project will take me or how successful “I” will be in being able to make a living from it. In fact, as I am writing this devotional you’re reading now, I had no idea where it might lead except it needed to be written. God’s plan for our lives knows no boundary.
No matter how long it takes, if you have God in your life, it will take as long as it needs to take. He will see you through.
