Dana and Goliath

As you read this blog, please pray for the author, Dana, as yet another publisher, #4, has fallen through the cracks for his new book. This tormented piece was written with many emotions and frustrations.

I sit in disbelief. The gentle winds feel refreshing, but the big mills of the system still exhaust my very existence. I write my memoirs I receive from heaven as I believe I’m connected to a higher power. God only anoints certain people with miracles and I know I’m one of them. Feeling like Moses, I sweat at the thought, and at times I’m in disbelief.


How do I cross many lanes of the highway’s vast interchange without being killed? The world has become a conglomerate of books and stories washed up by the beach. Crashing waters cave in!

Feeling as though I am David, standing on a hill staring at Goliath, I left my flock to conquer a monster. In the name of Jesus, God brought me thus far for purposes unknown. I trace my steps and ask the Lord, “Where are you leading me? Why are there so many roadblocks as I try to produce the gift you’ve given me? I suffer from disillusionment, yet I stay focused. I suffer financially, yet I’m a half a step from being penniless. You’ve brought me love and joy I’ve never known. But, I am lost in a maze as the haze clouds my intentions. Where am I going, Lord?”

My energies are mixed, and emotions stymie me. I’ve come to a fork in the road. What should I choose – give up on fate or follow my faith like David? It’s God I must stay centered on for answers. There has to be a purpose for Him to grant me such a miraculous gift.

Lord, I’m not a writer as most authors I know, yet millions think different. I am flawed, imperfect, and I struggle to refrain from sin too. I’m no better than the one who is reading this message. But God, you have a purpose; I am certain. How long must I wait? The tribulations seem endless. I’ll stay in prayer; not for me, but for the gift you bestowed upon me. Please, Father, guide me through these mills of the system, and protect my enthusiasm for it, too, is clouded over.

I’m at the close of another road of disappointment. I’ve turned around, though life has no reverse. God give me the strength to stare down the Goliath. Evil is everywhere! Let there be more hope than just a mustard seed in my palm. I must remember my purpose in life and conquer…. in the name of Jesus.

Dana and Goliath

 

Written by Dana Bicks LLC, Author

Dana S. Bicks, a Severna Park, Maryland native, was born a left-handed dyslexic, and falsely labeled "retarded" as a young child. He struggled throughout his life with the disability until the age of sixty. Then one night, a miracle occurred. God, in His infinite grace and wisdom, awoke Dana and demanded him to be a writer of His messages to the world. Shortly after finding humor in God's suggestion, Dana picked up a pen. He began writing, right-handed nonetheless, Christian struggles of life, and prayers ascribed to him by the Lord. In June 2017, Dana and his wife created this inspirational blog which currently maintains 19.6 million readers in twenty-nine countries across the world. It has won multi-awards including a Top 30 Inspirational Blog Websites to follow in 2018 as awarded by Feedspot.com in May 2018. His blog is followed by numerous celebrities, ministries, authors, and people in all walks of life. Only God's hand could allow an unexperienced writer to grow a fellowship of such success in less than a year! Dana Bicks shares these stories in his beautiful books, blogs, and social media platforms. Currently, his newest inspirational book series, "There.... In God's Grace", Round the Bay, is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2018. Dana’s creative, talented writing can only be heaven sent!

  2. Praying for God to open doors that no man can shut, and shut doors that do not lead to Him being glorified. I pray for provision as He is Jehovah Jireh; the God who provides. He provided the Ram in the bush for Abraham, surely He’ll make a way for you. Remain faithful and steadfast that your promise is coming in the name of Jesus. The Lord never delays (2 Peter 3:8-9). Trust His timing, though it may not make sense. Noah spent nearly if not over 100 years building the ark yet he didn’t see the rain until the day it was meant to fall. God is in control. Trust Him and hold fast to what He has promised you. Continue to use your gift to glorify the Father and you’ll see the windows of heaven open in your favor; in His perfect time of course. Watch for the blessings, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem to others because God speaks even in the form of a whisper, yet only those who are listening for His voice will hear (Elijah in the cave, 1 Kings 19). He will see you through. I will be praying for you.

    1. What a beautiful response! You are so kind – thank you! God has led me through this journey from the start and I’m sure he will not let me down now. Book publishers are faltering for authors today and it is very frustrating so we have decided to give self-publishing a try. Thank you for your continuing prayers! God bless!
