I received my first official rejection email from a publisher. It would be nice if I could say that was years ago and God has since used books I authored to point people to himself. However, I only recently got the email.
When the disappointment hit, I assumed:
- I’d close my laptop and stop writing altogether
- I’d realize I’d mistaken God’s leading and repent for submitting a proposal
- I’d have to start over at seeking God’s will for my life
But, praise God, none of that happened. Instead, I was reminded:
God’s will is what God will do. What God will do doesn’t change when my plans do.
Are you struggling to understand God’s will for your life? Are you discouraged about his purpose for you? It’s too easy to misplace our hope in our plans and goals. God’s will is about so much more than just our circumstances- and he is more persistent than our problems too.
