I press on. I press onward and into my calling and destiny.
My calling is to be an author for the multitudes. I am chosen by the Lord, for such a time is this, to be an author for the multitudes to read and to see my writing and to see the glory of the Lord put on display in the testimonies of my story. I knew about my calling to be an author when I was a child.
~”For many are called, but few are chosen.”~ Matthew 22:14, ESV~
When I was in the fifth grade, I wrote many stories. My fifth grade teacher would have described me as a very creative and imaginative child. I would write stories that included my friends and family members. Other times, I would write stories that came to me as I wrote, with my pencil and paper in hand.
There was one time time when my Kindergarten teacher asked me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I replied to my Kindergarten teacher, “I want to be an author.”
Did I want to be a nurse? No. Did I want to be a doctor? Absolutely not! I wanted to be an author.
Little did I know that when I reached my early adult years that I would be the news editor for Atlanta Christian Voice. Little did I know that God would want me to start this blog that I am writing now, “Sarah’s Spiritual Walk.” Little did I know that God would want me to begin writing my first book a few years ago.
My first book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” will be released in February 2022 and is a memoir and a testimony regarding my walk with the Lord, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, over the years of my life. The years that this book starts and ends begins with my early childhood and ends with me in my late twenties.
One reason that I am excited that this book is going to be released is because it will bring the light and love of Jesus Christ to those who struggle with and battle mental illness, on a daily basis. one goal of my book is to be the light and love of Jesus Christ to the multitudes. The story of my mental illness, I pray, will be the light and love of Jesus Christ as a witness of His light and love for me from my mental illness.
Another reason that I am excited that this book is going to be released is because it will be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to the multitudes, who battle with mental illness, on a daily basis. I am expectant to see how the hands and feet of Christ will touch the multitudes, who battle with mental illness, as a result of the testimony, from the story behind my mental illness.
~”And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”~Romans 10:15, NIV~
A final reason that I am excited for the release of my book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” is because it will allow for me to finally step into my calling, as an official author, of my first book, as those in the world celebrate and rejoice in me becoming an author and the authorship of my first book.
I invite you, children of God and those who do not know Jesus, to purchase a copy of my book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” once it is released in February 2022. In this way, you will be celebrating with me as I officially become an author of my first book and glorify God through my writing and story.
I press on. I press onward and into my calling and destiny, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
