Sometimes I get so behind with my blogging that I’m embarrassed to even share posts that I had originally started MONTHS ago. Or in this case, a video interviewed that I had done back when I was pregnant. Yeah. That long ago.
I’m just keeping it real around here.
And while it might be tempting to act like it never happened, this video conversation with Deidra Riggs is just too good to let it gather dust. Precisely because of the conversation we’re having in this video: God cares about the little things in our lives.
So pardon my pregnant belly and stuffy nose (this was February, after all), and enjoy this blast from the past, where Deidra and I talk about the grueling (but rewarding) work that goes into writing books, the self-doubt that threatens to undo us, the importance of surrendering our lives to God, and the incredible ways God uses every little thing to accomplish His big purposes.
(And then smile knowingly when Deidra hints at her upcoming book, because you have the advantage of learning all about it without having to wait 6 months. You’re welcome.)
Watch this interview to learn…
- How book-writing can undo you in all the right ways
- What to do when your childhood dreams seem impossible
- A beautiful reassurance that Jesus is enough. Really.
- Hope for moms caught up in the busy season of motherhood
- How to be both honest and reverent toward God (probably my favorite part of the entire conversation)
- How to connect with God when you feel far away from Him
- What to do when you don’t see any open doors
Even just listening to this interview again this week, I was so encouraged by Deidra’s practical and down-to-earth advice about being real with God and trusting Him with our lives, down to the very last (little) detail.
What about you? Do you feel like God has forgotten about you, like you can’t really connect where you are and where you thought He was leading you? Or have you seen Him faithfully shepherd you through the hard seasons into green pastures? I’d love to hear your stories in the comments below.
