Because you asked, Chief…

Today I had lunch with a friend and former business associate. We talked about change. We talked about the art of communication. We talked about listening. And he asked a question – a question that I didn’t answer because – well, other things seemed more important. So, friend, here you go. My answer to the question, “So, what are you doing now?”

I’m truly learning to relax and enjoy this season in my life – not sure how long it will last, and don’t want to squander it. I’m reading and writing, praying and listening. I’m working a little, playing a little, relaxing a little. I’m focusing more time on friends and family, and actively seeking opportunities to minister in ways large and small. And I’m learning to be OK with a life that is filled with fewer definites and more new adventures.

The Lord has crafted me and gifted me uniquely to serve and glorify Him, and He will continue to direct my path. I’m excited about both the “now” and the “not yet.” I’ve never been more grateful, humble, or awe-struck of the majesty, sovereignty, power and love of my God.

That, sir, is my answer.

About Ronne Rock

YOU ARE GOD'S HAND-CRAFTED DESIGN. AND I WANT TO CELEBRATE YOU.

We're in this together, and I am for you. I secure road signs with a hammer of hope, and clear the debris so they can be seen. I am your encourager. I walk and keep walking. Cheer and keep cheering. I invest, dive deep, and cherish most the stories being written in the lives of women who believe restoration is a reality on earth as it is in heaven. God holds the pen in those stories, “That one - I hold her. And that one - she is My delight. And that one - never snatched away.”  I am a mouthpiece of celebration for women. Redemption is our song. You can find even more encouragement in  "For You, Love" the prayer journals that invite you to respond, and in Everbloom, a collection of stories from the Redbud Writers Guild. I'm currently writing One Woman Can Change the World, set to publish late spring 2020 (Revell). I'm honored to be represented by Credo Communications.

  1. In some ways I’m jealous of the time you’re getting. It’s not often someone can do it and not be worried about paying the bills.

    Your lunch friend must be a brilliant philosopher with a great heart.

  2. Yes, Arnie, I am blessed beyond measure. And it’s not something I take lightly – there were years when I, as a single parent raising a child with no financial assistance, wondered if I would have enough left over after paying those bills to feed my son. God provided then, and He provides now. I am truly humbled that He would allow me this season.

    Yes, my friend is a brilliant person with a dry wit and a healthy appetite – for food and life.
