Issue of Timing
Publishing a book is like that. There are many good writers out there, but it's the one that shines the most in front of eyes that are in a good mood and are ready to exert the energy needed to push the book through to publication that rise to the top. Yes, it takes good writing to shine. Yes, it takes work to rise to the top. But there is the element of timing involved, I think.
It's all about God's timing. It's the unknown variable, but it is by far the best timing. It's not something you can corral or command. It is something you rest in and find peace in. We can fret and worry all we want, but God is ultimately our agent. He is the one who opens doors and gives us success. He's the one who lands the contract. All in His time.
We just get to enjoy the journey. So let it be a thrilling one, reveling in the gift He has given you with words.
