Always Look Up

I am beyond excited. A major firm in NYC read my book, The Tower Builder, and has offered a book signing in early November, somewhere around Broadway and 5th. Tony, the hero of the book, called me last night to tell me and ask if I was interested.
"Are you kidding????I'm in!!!!" I cried.
This book is my best book, but no one knows it. It is a difficult book to promote because it is about so many things but at its core, it is a book about miracles.
Anyway, I had lost hope that it would ever take off. I have had limited sales or interest. I worked on it for 8 years, so I ended up making about $10 a year on it. It was a labor of love, and I was still glad I wrote it, but it is tough to swallow the fact that no one else loves it.
But now this.
Before I forget, here is the link and here is what one reader said:
"It all comes together in a miraculous final chapter that will truly inspire your faith in the human spirit." John Eney. It is a story of faith and miracles, and you happen to learn alot about towers along the way.

So what was God telling me? Don't give up. Don't lose hope. Always believe that better things are waiting just over the horizon. The best thing about towers-- you don't see them unless you look up. Always look up!

Romans 12:12 

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Romans 15:13 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Deuteronomy 31:6 

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Romans 5:2-5 

Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
