This is my fifth year writing "The Monday Marketing Mix." It is also a new season which I want to share with you.
The past year and a half I have battled health challenges which have required focus and change for my life. In keeping with that, I have felt led to step back from the heavy schedule I have maintained for the last several years.
In seeking the Lord as to what things to keep and what things to remove from my schedule, I have sensed for some time that the publicity and marketing side of the agency is to receive less time as I focus to work closer with the authors for which I agent and my own writing.
I may still from time to time post in "The Monday Marketing Mix," but the weekly blog is being suspended for now.
I will, however, be maintaining a newer blog, "The Light & The Remnant," which launched with a message that I want to share with you now as a word for your writing.
Do Not Abandon Your Seat of Authority
(click here to read)
The message I want to pass on to each of you is to remain in your place of authority. If that includes writing, then do not allow the enemy to discourage you, distract you, or attack you to remove you from that seat. Kathryn Kuhlman and her husband, Burroughs Waltrip both possessed a strong anointing. Both a purposeful destiny. But after an overwhelming personal attack, one went on to resume their ministry stronger than before. The other was never heard from again.
(Note: If you would like to read more about this season in Kathryn's life, I highly recommend Shane Philpott's book, "Kathryn Kuhlman: The Radio Chapel Years.")
The reason? Choices.
One chose to battle through the attack to restoration. The other chose to step back and remain hidden. One fulfilled their destiny. One walked away from theirs.
And so when that hit comes in your own life, as it most surely will. what will you do? I pray you make the choice to stand and remain in your seat of authority.
"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore..." (Eph 6:13-14 ESV)
