Encouragement in God’s Blessing
To change the subject a bit in my blog, today I want to glorify God for his blessing upon my life and introduce my new book The Kingdom of the Mejuar.
As many of you know I have been talking about my new book for months, giving praise to God, I have finally completed the first book of the three book series. The other two books are complete, but still require a bit of proofing until they are ready. This series of books have been in production in my mind for over three years, and now the whole story is on paper. By the direction of the Holy Spirit, ideas from my husband, and encouragement and the prayers of my mother, the story developed into a fantasy/real life tale.
Off topic a bit, I want to discuss how many have made comments that they are confused when I speak of the leading of God in my life. Just to clarify that, I have to say there are no audible words spoken to me by God, or no words written against the wall, which pop out as clear messages. No animals speak to me, or rarely do I have a dream that makes any sense, lol. However when others, of God, speak, their words minster to my heart as God’s messages to me, and when I study God’s word, the bible, as I hope you would do also, it confirms all that I feel within my heart. So I want to encourage you to hang on for God’s blessing. When I pray for guidance, his words in the bible light up in my heart. They become messages to me to answer all of my questions, giving me comfort. James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed,”
Since my current publisher did not require me to commit all of my works to it, the book is a long way from the publishing stage, but God is good and I will await for his leading as he did with Porcelain Doll. Now I pray about my new book and my heart fills with comfort to know that whatever direction he has for it, it will work out for my best. As I prayed about it, God just told me just recently, Romans 2:6-7 “He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality. It may not be as people around me, with worldly expectations, assume, so to those I have to disregard their advice and comments, if I am to continue in faith; but over time, since I have witnessed the faithfulness of God, I can trust that all will be well. I encourage you as well; to always depend upon him, regardless. These scriptures tell me, that if I continue in his guidance, my hard work will pay off; I can testify of it to you today, and not worry, even though it seems so far away. It is about unwavering faith in God.
Back to my story, now, I will leave my tangent; I do have a way of going off topic sometimes, and rambling on, lol. Like all of my stories, I do not write in a strictly religious manner, but I do like to give God the glory in the end. I like to explore the fantasy side, plus the everyday struggles that happen to each of us regardless of who we are. Our class, race, personality, wealth, etc., cannot always make life perfect for us, regardless of how much we lie to ourselves; at one time or another, everyone if they continue on through life, they will experience them. Over my years, I have seen the rich, the popular, every race, and class struggle with life’s pains, and no amount of money, education, or position can take away the hurt that I see in the faces of so many.
In my opinion, however, God helps me through my aches and problems, and others that believe in him. My pain and struggles do not seem nearly as bad as others do, I have seen. I know the Holy Spirit comforts my spirit giving me a peace within that sometimes I cannot explain. Therefore, I will always glorify god because his word is true. John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The Kingdom of the Mejuar is a fantasy book with a new mystical race. Like many others, I have a curiosity in all the gods people worship or have worshiped. I wrote a story about the twelve Olympian gods, giving those companions called mejuar; they have animalistic appearances, such as tails, ears, and markings, and all have some sort of godly abilities that helps them live their lives in beautiful surrounding while conquering all that they come upon. These unique beings have a world of their own, away from the earth in the solar system Kiev; as history tells us, the Olympians all but disappeared, but my race continued to live becoming independent and living by of their godly abilities. They found new friends in elves, dragons, shadow folk, and other fantasy creatures.
However, like life, a little rain always falls, and even their godly natures cannot help them. In book one, they lose two of their young mewlings, babies, the new prince, and a commoner; through a cleverly manipulated plot, the mewlings end up on earth. The story has an urban fantasy appeal, as well as a pure fantasy that so many of us love. To their advantage, unlike some stories, their babies do not fall into the hands of the government or scientists, but into the loving arms of a veterinarian, Hubert, and his family. These who are suffering from the pain of losing their dear mother, gain strength from the two unlikely creatures, and along with the aid of a soon to be friend, a long lost elf living in seclusion among the humans, they help the young ones to survive.
The books cover the many trials of the mejuar, their connection with the elves, dragons, shadow folk, and other evil dark powers that threaten to destroy these once comfortable god companions.
That is enough of the book’s story for now, but for your reading, I would like to give you a sample of the story. Click the cover above to read about their astonishing beginning.
