I just read the following excerpt from The Art & Craft of Writing Christian Fiction, by Jeff Gerke. It really gave me something to think about. Maybe it will speak to you, too as we get ready to move into the new year.
We are like Adam and Eve, complete in the Garden. As Christians we are like springs of living water welling up to eternal life. We have the powerful, loving, guiding Spirit of God. What more do we need? What more does God have to add for us to be content?
Perhaps it’s time to do some meditating of your own. Ask God to change your perspective from one of always looking at what you feel you lack, to gratefully remembering all He’s given. He hasn’t ripped you off.
