Perspective

I went for another bike ride tonight. When I ride in the park I think the sun is setting over Harrodsburg Road. I have an exact spot in my mind where I think it is. But as I wound my way out of the park last night I noticed the sun setting behind a neighbor's house. This did not match the direction I perceived from the park. So tonight I asked my husband to help me pay attention to the angles. I wanted my perspective to line up with reality.
On our way out of the park, we ran into a neighbor. He shared a story with us of following God's will.  God impressed something upon him last year. He didn't know how it could possibly happen, but he moved forward because God told him to. He had a concrete deadline to achieve. He did everything he could, followed every lead God gave him, but the day arrived and he fell short of his goal. That day though God amazed our friend and finished the mission.
From a human perspective this was an unattainable goal. But from God's perspective it could be done.
I've dreamed about writing and tried to write on and off for the last few years. But two years ago, I felt  God gave me a green light to pursue my dream. I'm still striving toward the goal of being published. I've learned a lot and made good friends the last two years.
I wonder what God's perspective is on my writing. After listening to my friend, I feel rejuvenated. I'm going to work harder than ever on my writing and hope to please my audience of One.
