(Pain has significantly decreased! Praise God! I’m on the mend!)
All day, I consider a quote from a wise woman. She mentions that, when it comes to speaking and writing books, I simply send the work out there and “find satisfaction in God’s results.”
In other words, I still need to grow into maturity in terms of self-evaluation after speaking events or publishing books. In other words, I need to trust in the sovereignty and power of God with, not just the doing of work, but also with the results of work. In other words, I need to release impact into God’s hands.
We abide with God, trust Him for our work and in our work, and release the results to Him. Maybe my new measure of success isn’t book charts or speaking reviews, but rather how surrendered I was to leaving the results and impact up to God.
