THE ANSWER, AN AGENT, & MOREGod has given me a literary agent! #amwriting #writingcommunity Click To Tweet
God is blessing in amazing ways—praise His matchless name! I’m very excited to share the latest developments. Please consider this “Part One” of my February update because I’m anticipating more wonderful news soon, which I plan to share in video format. Since I intend to post again in the near future with that link, I’ll keep today’s update brief.
So for now, here’s the latest…
The Glory of Jesus: The Answer
“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, ‘Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?’” (Matthew 24:3, KJV).
Do you carry questions about the past, present, or future? Whatever our perplexities, it’s an incredible comfort knowing our Lord holds every single answer. And not only can He answer our questions, He IS the answer. I love this truth.
In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus’ disciples expressed curiosity about His second coming and the end of the world. The Lord knew exactly how and what to reply. He didn’t need to ask a friend or depart for a study session. His exemplary grasp of details flowed forth as He shared, and His calm demeanor contributed peace to a difficult topic. JESUS communicated the answer perfectly because He IS the answer.
What question lurks in your mind today, pressing for an answer?
As life’s complexities, the world’s instabilities, and so on cause questions to form, may we turn to JESUS. The world might accuse us of being simple, narrow-minded, or weak, yet we can confidently lift our eyes to the one, true God. He comforts us in our search and opens our eyes to biblical truth.
God has given me a literary agent!!! After years of seeking representation, the Lord answered this prayer in a magnificent way. I’m delighted to share that Bob Hostetler, an agent with the Steve Laube Agency, now represents me. I appreciate his valuable insights as well as his wealth of knowledge in Christian publishing, and I look forward to his expert assistance with my writing career. To God be the glory.
National Religious Broadcasters Convention
The Lord has provided an incredible opportunity for me to attend the NRB 2024 Convention on February 21 in Nashville, TN. This conference for Christian communicators offers worshops, keynotes, panel discussions, and more. It also hosts an Expo featuring numerous ministries, and the ICVM Crown Awards will be held the same evening.
I’m attending as a representive for Uptime, a YouTube channel on which I shared as a guest speaker. Their video, UpTime—Jesus Came to Give Us Life: With Emily Wickham is a finalist in the video podcast category of the Crown Awards. God is amazing!
At the same time, I’ll be able to meet other Christian communicators and gain helpful information to benefit my writing and speaking ministry. I’m excited to see what the Lord has in mind. Please keep me in your prayers: safety in traveling along with the Spirit’s leading as I interact. Thank you so much.
Until Next Time (which might be sooner rather than later)
Let’s rejoice in God’s many acts of goodness. He knows our needs, He hears our prayers, and He answers. Jesus IS the answer. Amen.
“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” Psalm 107:21
