Writing With God

There’s a saying that goes like this: “God is not always early, but He’s never late.”  I’ve experienced that time and again as I prepare my weekly messages for the Ladies Devotional Lunch. 
My challenge each week is to make the thoughts relevant for the lives we’re all faced with out there in the wide, wide world.  Once I have the “hook” —a personal experience or something from current events—the message usually flows.  Finding that hook means searching my memory or the newspapers or the TV news shows.  I search and I pray and just when my mind seems the driest of the dry, there it will be. 

It’s like the Holy Spirit finally just says, “Here!”
