A Pretty Sweet Deal

When my book of daily encouragements, Be Still, came out, my publisher encouraged a sweet deal 2me to do the whole advertising, book signings, etc., thing, and I did so with great expectations. Visions of grandeur danced in my head, as I bounced merrily on the springboard of what I perceived to be success, fame and fortune.

Unfortunately, no one had filled the proverbial pool, and I hit bottom hard and quick. It was painful, but then, gradually, God began to remind me of something I’d lost sight of. I began to hear His voice–a loving whisper–telling me, “It’s not about you, Charlie.”

No, it’s not about me, it’s about God, it’s about each one of you, and it’s about each and every person I come in contact with for the rest of my days. And, I’ve discovered the more of God’s peace and joy I share with others, the more peace and joy He gives to me.

I’m thinkin’ that’s a pretty sweet deal!
