latest metaphor picture the Lord gave me is this: to stop the marketing
and only write would be like cooking a gourmet meal and leaving it sit on the
stove. Marketing is the serving dishes by which I bring the food to hungry
people. The Lord is really serious about this. Groan. My emotions have yet to
catch up with my spirit’s enthusiastic “Yes!” I can tell that I am going to be
here for a while.
do I reconcile the fact that my assignment is to stay one step behind
Jesus…close enough to hear what He says and write it down, the fact that He has
given me a flaming pen that can also be a sword…writing as spiritual warfare,
as gourmet food…how can I be called to make plain the mysteries of God and
spend 75% of my time in marketing. Only 25% of my time relating to God and writing what I hear?
sat and contemplated that for a while, thinking about prophets of old…and then of
Jesus who spent 75% of His time with the people and 25% alone with Father.
Okay, I see it. Marketing IS ministry. Help me Jesus!
