Hola from Janet Perez Eckles…Igniting Your Passion to Overcome
Remember years past? We had new opportunities, more book contracts, more invitations to speak, and best-selling status was attainable.
What happened? Without warning, the economy turned. Competition became fierce, and because of that, at times restlessness made our creativity fade.
“I feel anxious,” my friend said the other day, “and I can’t shake this fear.”
That’s a common feeling these days. But in the midst of tough times, we writers and speakers have the opportunity to bring Christ to crisis and His love to hopeless situations.
But how? When we ourselves taste the bitterness of adversity? We encounter the same disappointments and disasters that sometimes invade our life.
I found the answer tucked in this verse:
Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. (Psalm 66:8-12)
As we nestle in His Word, the abundance of His love billows through our own words. From our valleys comes the examples that put clarity to our emotions. And from our convictions lived, come the insights that leap into the hearts of our readers. And from the freedom we found emerges the liberty to write and speak of proven triumph and perfect peace.
Before Janet Perez Eckles became an international speaker, No. 1 Amazon best-selling author, life coach, master interpreter, and radio host, she faced complete blindness at 31 and endured other devastating tragedies.
