“Mikey called. It was our weekly visit.
OK Mikey, what is the B-I-G Idea?
He wrote to tell me earlier that on Wednesday we would talk about the B-I-G Idea.
I’m all ears and I am in. What is it?
He proceeded to tell me that I needed to take the focus off of me and put it on something bigger than myself.
OK. I guess everything I have written and posted on Facebook, websites, etc, have all been about me. How I did it! Isn’t that what I was suppose to do to help others to self-publish?
It’s time to switch focus.
How do you do that?
Start a project where the focus is on something beneficial. Spirit of the Red Candle deals with hurting women. The book needs to be in places where women who are hurting can be helped by this book. You wrote the book with the heart to bring value into other’s lives. You wanted people to be changed when they read the book. You wanted the book to have an effect in other’s lives. Now we need to get it into those women’s hands.
There are 3,314 women shelters in the USA. We need to send one book to each shelter in the United States, and trust they get into the hands of the women who need to have the answer. The answer, being that of getting healed from their history or abuse so they can embrace their life as someone with worth. This book can bring that kind of turn around.
Mikey gave me a n address of a website. “Study this site, then we will talk next Wednesday. Send the book to me again So I can read it as the final copy. I need to see the content.”
The next thing, we need to put a packet together with the book. Anything that will help these women find the Truth.
“Then we will discuss ways of funding this project. You wrote the book, and it needs to be out there. I am going to show you how you can sell 3,000 copies in 90 days. It is more than sells. You didn’t write it to make money, you wrote it, to help others. To help others, we have to get the book out there.
Your homework is this. Go the Post Office and find out how much exactly it will take to send one book to Florida, or New York, or California. We need to see just how much you will be investing into this book, printing and mailing, and any other expenses.
“Until then, pray about the passion of why you wrote the book. Become more specific to exactly who you wrote the book for. Get more precise about the one who needs this book.”
I will pray. I will not move on this idea until I know it is the way the Lord wants it to go. When I wrote the book, I felt that the book carried the message that every woman knows her own pain. It is different with every woman. Some have chosen the wrong man and ended up in a women’s shelter for abused women. Others have been beaten up emotionally by relationships or by circumstances. Every woman has history. Most every woman can relate to Mary Magdalene.
Even though we know so little about her, we know she had seven demons. Those spirit came through some door which bound her from moving forward in freedom. How did she get free and how can any woman who reads Spirit of the Red Candle become free?
I’ve got some praying to do. This B-I-G Idea can not start with a whim, it has to be a direct move of the Holy Spirit on the book. My heart has to be prepared for the Holy Spirit to move on me.
I’ll let you know next wednesday, what is on Mikey’s mind. He has thrown a big ball into my lap, and until I get direction, I need to ponder on these things.
