However, as it is written: "What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived" -- the things God has prepared for those who love him. ~ 1 Corinthians 2:9
I met a woman yesterday from Mexico City who is opening a new Mexican food restaurant in Wellman, Iowa. It's close enough to check out when my wife and I have a date night.
"What is the name of your place?" I asked Melitza, the new owner.
"Paz en la Tormenta," she replied. She was with a couple of friends who volunteered a translation.
"Don't tell me, let's see if I can figure it out." I pondered for a moment and asked, "is it 'Peace in the storm'?"
The new owner appeared stunned. "Yes," she answered. "I asked God to give me a name for my restaurant and this is what he gave me. My customers love it."
Melitza has no idea I'm a writer. Like her, I ask God to give me the words for the book I'm writing. I'm releasing it, one chapter at a time, as it is written. You will be able to read the first chapter for free here on this blog on Sunday, March 17. I hear God's voice in my head bellowing, "so let it be written." Is this why my hair now looks like Charlton Heston in the picture above? I have only seen a tiny glimpse of what is ahead, about as much as one grain of sand in the desert. Only God knows the future. I hear His voice and respond, "so let it be written, so let it be done."
