Setting sail

I wonder if Christopher Columbus had any idea that his name would become world-famous and that yesterday, October 12th, would become a national holiday because of his great achievements?

All he was doing was looking for a faster route to the Far East. But three months after setting sail across the Atlantic, as fate – or God – would have it, he ended up in the New World and the outcome introduced us to a new plants, animals and new cultures. 

It struck me that we never really know where our ventures will lead us.

After my book, ‘The Senator’s Darkest Days’ was completed in March, Andrew Chamberlain interviewed me for one of his podcasts.  Today, I received an e-mail from a discouraged writer in Kentucky, USA who was about to give us.  Then she listened to Andrew’s podcast.  Apparently, she was so encouraged by the questions and the transparency of answers on my writing journey that she decided to stick with it and she has asked for prayer.

Strange; but when Andrew asked me for an interview, I nearly turned him down – far too scared to set sail on a venture like that. In fact, I even felt like that when I started writing.

I wonder if Christopher Columbus felt the same when he set sail on his venture? After all, when you think about it, all you have to do is get on the boat and trust God to set the current in the right direction.
