Have I stopped listening to God? No. If God would tell me to invest in another venture, I would talk it over with my husband, and being sure that I was hearing from God, I would then take action. I am not fearful of stepping out on my faith.
I used to have an obsessive fear over bees. I would run if one would come near me. I would dream that one bee would aim his stinger directly at my jugular vein (the large vein in my neck), and I would awake in a chill. One night I prayed and asked God to help me. I didn't know the Bible at that time. The amazing thing was that God gave me a scripture, and I looked it up. It was just what I needed to be delivered from my fears: "And He said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?” (Mark 4:40). I had to give my fear over to God and trust Him to help me to conquer my fear. There is a difference between fear and respect. A bee has never stung me because I do respect their territory, yet I won't run from them anymore.
I know that God has a plan and a purpose for our lives. Sometimes we know what it is right away, and at other times, we may find out in due season. “God has a purpose for my life. No other person can take my place. It isn’t a big place to be sure, but for years I have been molded in a peculiar way to fill a peculiar niche in the worlds work” by Charles Stelzle. Father does know best.
Praise God, in spite of what some would call overbearing situations; I bask in the peace of God. The devil still tries to disillusion me about the books which are to be published, yet I rebuke him whenever he shows his angry head. Praise God for His peace.
