Today belongs to love. Let me not fear.
Father, today I would let all thing be as you created them, and give Your Son the honour due his sinlessness; the love of brother to his brother and his Friend. Through this I am redeemed. Through this as well the truth will enter where illusions were, light will replace all darkness, and Your Son will know he is as you created him.
A special blessing comes to us today, whom Him Who is our Father. Give this day to Him, and there will be no fear today, because the day is given unto love.
What an amazing day! It felt like a dam was opened up in my creative reservoir, and stuff just poured into my head. I worked on the novel for four hours non stop. The characters and their motivations became so clear I could see them as if in a movie. I buzzed for the whole day with the conversations they were having with each other, and I knew their world. I felt their hopes and fears, their anger, their longings, their insecurities. I saw the many and varied faces they presented to the world to hide their deepest feeling. It was such a privilege to be with them, and although it’s clear to me what they need to do to get out of their predicaments, they cannot see it.
Being a novelist is like being God. This oversight of all of the lives of the characters, this knowing of how it will end and the journey that will take them there, but even though I have in my head roughly what the process will be, I know that when the characters talk to each other they will make their own choices and will take me down some unexpected paths. I am so excited to share their journeys with them.
So many other things just fell into place throughout the day. Total confirmation for me that when we commit to doing what is right for us, the universe organises itself around us to facilitate it.
