Pricey Lakisha Johnson,
Pricey God: Hear My Prayer has received 1ST PLACE within the class of Christian (Fiction) within the 2019 TopShelf Ebook Awards!
That is the e-mail I simply opened. My first full Christian Fiction novel has been awarded 1ST PLACE within the class of Christian (Fiction) within the 2019 TopShelf Ebook Awards! Y’all… to say I’m ecstatic, blown away and honored could be an understatement.
Who am I kidding, I’m beside myself.
This guide, Pricey God, was launched a 12 months after I bought the quilt. See, I had each intention to launch it in 2017 however God mentioned NOPE! I didn’t perceive it and I questioned God. “God, haven’t I been devoted? God, what else? God, why me?” All of the questions I requested the numerous months I toiled, the numerous nights I cried and the times of wanting to simply throw within the towel.
Bible says in Philippians three:12, “Not that I’ve already obtained it or have already grow to be excellent, however I press on in order that I’ll lay maintain of that for which additionally I used to be laid maintain of by Christ Jesus.”
God shut me down nevertheless it was the very best factor for me, even once I couldn’t see it as a result of in 2018, I launched 7 books with Pricey God being my very first full Christian guide. I used to be nervous as a result of it was totally different from any I’d written beforehand. This guide didn’t have intercourse and minimal to no cursing. But, it has been certainly one of my finest sellers. This guide offers with sexual abuse by the hands of a pastor who ought to have been praying as a substitute he preyed. And whereas Jayme’s story is certainly one of fiction, this identical abuse is occurring in homes all internationally however there’s hope. Hope to beat, hope to press and hope to be restored.
I simply need to encourage someone. Press on, even while you don’t know what the top shall be. Press on, even when it hurts and also you don’t perceive. Press on, particularly when it takes you out of your consolation zone. It’ll repay. I’m a witness. A daring, declaring and decreeing witness.
