♦ Messy Choices and 2016 ♦

“I don’t know what to do! What if I make the wrong choice?”

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Torn between a slew of choices. Unclear about God’s will because he’s not speaking audibly…again. Wondering if we are on the brink of ruining our lives by choosing something God doesn’t want for us, but desperately wanting to do what’s right.

every once in a while in your life you reach a decision point. a crossroad leading left or right. you can not look far enough to make the perfect step, but you have to decide anyways. is it left or right? or even turning back?

“What if I choose the wrong college?”

“What if I date the wrong person and miss an opportunity with my soulmate?”

“What if this isn’t the perfect job?”

“This church? Or that one?”

As a therapist, I’m privileged to be a part of people’s lives as they explore God’s will, make decisions…and discover the outcomes. And here’s what I’ve learned: the Apostle Paul is right. God WORKS OUT all things according to the purposes of His will. Even things that seem bad (or even horrible) at first. Even our messy, uncertain choices. Not only that, if we are truly His children, He works them out for our good. What a relief!

Over the next year, go make choices and stop being so afraid that you’ll make the wrong one! IF you’ve submitted your life to God, and IF you are seeking His will, then He WILL guide you. It’s what He promises. Even when you don’t feel Him doing so. Even when you don’t have a strong discernment between two possibly good alternatives. Are you really so powerful that your messy choices can alter the destiny God laid out?

I have one thing to say about that:

Pfft!

This tale’s a wild ride with spiritual warfare, monsters, demons, action, adventure, coming of age, orphans, adoption, abuse, and the kitchen sink. This is Raiders of the Lost Ark in Machu Picchu. It’s action/adventure way over the top—great fun.

The Fiercest Fight Blog Tour with Brent King

In this Post…


The Fiercest Fight: Author Interview

Today, I’m happy to interview my friend, Brent King, as he plods along the cyber world on his blog tour to promote his new book, The Fiercest Fight. Links for ordering the book are immediately following the interview, as is a contest to win a free copy of his book! Don’t forget to enter!

The Fiercest Fight

In the sleepy town of Astor Crossing, something evil stirs… Have you ever battled a beast? If so, you are not alone. Meet Tristan, a troubled teen who longs for a normal life, the very life that eludes him. When horror beyond his wildest nightmares confronts him, does Tristan have what it takes to survive? It will take all his resources—his wits, his mentors, and his will—to find the wisdom and resolve to win the fiercest fight of his life.

Thanks, Brent, for stopping by. Tell us a little about your book’s story line.

On the surface it’s about a couple teens that stumble upon a werewolf curse. Beneath the surface it’s about how to deal with the beast within.

So, what about your main character, Tristan? What makes him so special?

Tristan isn’t particularly special. He reacts to trouble as I suppose most teenagers would. Yet he is special too—like all teens. He has talents and the same heroic stuff hidden deep inside that you’ll find in most of our youth. Awakening that stuff is the problem.

The inner struggle of the antagonist is often emphasized in books and movies these days. Is that true with your villain? Is there any good in him?

At first I didn’t think so. Yet, as the story progressed, I grew to wonder whether I should hate him or pity him. We are all villains on some level. Consequently, we can learn a lot from them.

Which writers inspire you? Which authors do you admire and why?

Oh my! The list is too long, but it didn’t use to be. When I was young, the authors of the Bible gave me plenty of inspiration for my imagination (they still do). Since then, authors like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Peter Kreeft, John Eldredge, and Neil Gaiman have added to the vision. Any author that brings me to thoughts I’ve never considered before is a great author.

Are you working on any other books?

I’m well into the rough draft for the sequel to The Fiercest Fight (Wounds of a Werewolf), and almost finished with Fire Cloak, the first novel in a new trilogy about a young boy and his disabled grandfather who find magic cloaks that take them to another world.

Beyond that, I’m working on a post-apocalyptic romance along the lines of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It will be a theological thriller on how the lost are saved. I like monster tales!

Exciting! Thanks for giving us a peak into your literary world!
