Prayer Reflection: Day 24

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. – James 5:16 KJV

I wrote a memoir called Tales of a Law School Dropout, which was the first of 7 books that I published to Kindle Direct Publishing.

As much as it was difficult and humbling for a perfectionist like me to admit that I had taken a wrong turn in my career path, I learned far more from failure than I had from academic success.

The Holy Spirit impressed upon me very clearly that I was not meant to become a lawyer. I had never heard His voice so clearly before, but I listened, and I have never looked back.

Over the past week, I have been helping my friend from my critique group promote her memoir. “Choices: A Story of Survival” by M. Kay Runyan documents her childhood poverty and also how she prevailed after a traumatic experience with being a victim of sexual abuse. Her memoir is one of survival. If you are interested, her book is available in paperback and Kindle Unlimited: https://amzn.to/3CIv8xz

God has a way of showing us our purpose by pointing us away from what we should not be doing.

After I bought Kay’s book, I checked its rankings in hopes that others will find it and be inspired by her courage to share her life story.

The Lord encourages us to share our mistakes and learning experiences with others – not to make people pity us, but to make us realize that we are all human and we all make mistakes, yet God loves us just the same. Amen.
