Hope Never Fails

 

I’ve been very open here about the fact that this past year has been extremely trying and there have been moments when, naturally I got worried, but I never gave up or quit. The last couple of weeks, as I stared down the face of my daughter and I being evicted from our home, might have been the first time during this whole storm that I’ve been going through that I actually started to truly lose a little but of the Hope that I was holding on to and I had a very frank and needed conversation with God. Now I talk to God on a daily basis but this particular conversation was more meditative and this time I said my peace and asked for guidance and instead of continuing to talk I stopped and I really listened. There was no TV on that overpowered my thoughts, no music playing in the background, no games being played to past the time. There was silence and I had stopped doing all the talking and just listened.

Now I’m not saying that I’ve never gotten a sign from God before because I have plenty of times and there are times where I hear a bit of a whisper telling the right thing to do that I believe to be God, but I must admit that I have never heard him in a clear and unfiltered way until the other night. I heard him clearly, as I would hear a person standing next to me, and he told me to have patience (which is something I deeply struggle with), he told me to let him work it out and he told me not to rush him and that he’s got me. Instinctively I know this already but to hear it, so clearly is a feeling that I can’t even begin to describe. It’s freeing and gave me such clarity. The next morning, Sunday, in the message one of the last key points the pastor made was that Hope is patience and knowing that God’s got you and he will work it out and he will not fail you. It was even more clarity to what I had already been told the night before.

In the message the Sunday before my pastor made a really good point and it’s that if we were to get everything we wanted, when we wanted it, there would never be any reason to have hope. When we hope we are hoping for something that we want to come to fruition, a new position in our lives that we want to be elevated to, or to conquer a particular battle. We can’t see any of those things but that’s what Hope is, believing in the things yet to come and the future that you can’t see. Hope is a very powerful thing.

There may be times when you might be going through some things and ALL that you have left is HOPE and you put your faith into that hope. I just want to let you know that your hope is not misplaced and even when it seems like you’re out of all hope and that nothing is going to work out in your favor, just remember that not only does God have the ability to perform miracles that you never expected but he can do so instantly. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and the storm will not last forever so when you feel like there’s nothing left to hold onto, hold onto HOPE!

Hello My Fellow Creative Ones:

It is the last month of 2019 and Write 2 Be Magazine is gearing up for a very productive 2020 with new content ranging from book reviews, to spoken word pieces, and a lot more Author Interviews. Launching in 2020 will be a brand new podcast, a new book club, and brand new YouTube channel that will promote Write 2 Be’s message of authenticity and self-acceptance and using our creative gifts to inspire and empower others.

Below are just a few things that I want you to know for the coming year:

Write 2 Be Magazine wants to be a part of your plan for promoting yourself and your work!

Write 2 Be Magazine has a new ad campaign which includes:

  • An author interview
  • A full page ad for your book or current project that will run for three months,
  • A pinned post of your ad and links to the fan page and on the magazine’s twitter feed to also run for three months
  • A reserved spot on the new Write 2 Be podcast that will be starting in January 2020.

How much is this ad campaign going to cost? For a limited time you can get everything in the above package for the low price of $100 for the full three months.

Don’t know if you want the three month campaign, not a problem! For only $50 you can get your author interview and your full page ad run alongside your interview for just one month. (This selection does not include a reserved spot for the upcoming Write 2 Be podcast)

To set up your promotional package with us you can email us at Write2BeMagazine@gmail.com so we can get started today!

Also coming in January 2020:

The Write 2 Be Podcast – This Podcast will be a vehicle to further inspire and empower other artists in all areas of creativity not just to be true to who they are, but also to fully embrace who they are and motivate the artists that come after them.

Write 2 Be Book Club – With the rise of social media and the continuous creation of new television and streaming services, the drive to read books seems to be decreasing. I want to do my part to change that. Write 2 Be Book Club is a place where we will share in our love of books and creating stories together. I don’t want it to just be a place where we trade our reviews of different books that we discover but also a critique group for authors who are a part of this group to give fresh eyes to the work you’ve just slaved over and had edited. Together we can be a source of support for one another and also promote the importance and love of reading.

There will be two book selections every month, one for adults and one for children/youth. For the first month I will select the picks but for subsequent months I want you, the readers and authors to become involved in the selection of the monthly reads. So hopefully you will all join in the Write 2 Be Book Club and it’s efforts to bring the love of reading and the powerful gift of words to as many people as it can!

 

That’s it for my end of the year announcements! I have a few more things in the pipeline but I want to wait until they are more concrete before saying anything. I hope that you will come along for the ride of what I hope will be the magazine’s best year yet!

Stay productive, stay creative, and stay inspired!
