God is doing something new...

Wow, it has been quite a week. Today, I shared exciting news on Facebook, Instagram and right here, on this website. I told the world what I've been dreaming about for years has finally become a reality. I am a published author!!! Yes. As in, you can purchase my book on Amazon or Westbow Press. Now, when people ask me what I do for a living, I can legit say to them, "I am an author... I write books." It is so surreal to have a dream that you've prayed for come to fruition. God is so full of goodness and grace; He is the reason for ALL of this.

I wrote Finding God's Grace In This Messy World over six years ago. For reasons too numerous to type right now, I'll save you the pain of having to read all of my excuses and I"ll just chalk it up to some serious procrastination and a sense of being so overwhelmed along with a hefty dose of uncertainty, wondering where to begin. Not to mention some difficult life challenges that my family and I went through. But today. Today is the beginning of something new and something good. I know it. Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness AND rivers in the desert." In the book of Isaiah, God reminded the people that He would do something NEW and He would bring about good things. I am remembering this verse and trusting God to do new and good things in my life.

Let's bask in the good news that this book, Finding God's Grace In This Messy World, is out and ready to be in your hands. My prayer is that you'll love this book; I hope it helps you truly enjoy reading the Bible where you'll find that God has so much grace for you and for me. It is a four-week Bible study with many of my life stories sprinkled throughout.

When I look back on the many desires I had in my heart over the years, I'm happy that becoming an author is one that God made happen. Being an author of a published book is all new and God has made a road in the wilderness for me. (I'm not going to question why God didn't allow me to be on Survivor, even though I tried out for that show more than once *cough, cough* or maybe I tried out for that show more than ten times. Hey, who's counting?) The point is, that God knows JUST the right desires that are good for us and clearly, being the next Ultimate Survivor out in the real wilderness wasn't in the cards for me. And honestly, I'm okay with that. I think an author is much more up my alley than eating bugs on a deserted island for forty days.

So, that brings me to the here and now. Being an author. Being a writer and blogger on this NEW website. Welcome to Angela Banae, where I always have something to say. I invite you to sign up to receive my latest blog posts. And pop back on here frequently. I think you're going to like it here. Together, we'll find God's grace in this messy world, where joy collides with hope and faith.
