Habakkuk was a prophet who had some complaints to air out to God. He wasn’t happy with the way his fellow Jewish people were living and he let the Lord know. The Lord replies to this minor prophet by telling him He indeed had a plan for His people and He would use the cruel Babylonians to accomplish His purposes. 

Now Habakkuk has several questions regarding God’s method of discipline. After asking his series of questions, we read these words,

“I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the Lord says and how he will answer my complaint.” (Habakkuk 2:1 NLT)

We all have complaints and questions as we journey through life. Habakkuk gives us an invitation to go back and forth with God to see what He’s up to in the world. But like Habakkuk, we must also be prepared to wait patiently for the Lord’s reply. In the end, like this prophet, we will find ourselves amazed and ready to fall to our faces in worship before this God who knows what He’s doing.

Our most recent Kingdom Writers Conference was all about selling more books using the power of collaborations. One of our speakers, Jess Kotzer, is hosting her event Sell With Collabs right now and interviewed Shelley on the topic.

Enjoy this episode as Shelley shares how collaborations have helped her sell more books and grow her business.

Jess Kozer has made it her mission to help other brands grow their audience through promotional partnerships and collaboration. She has built a strong community for herself through these strategies and has discovered that working with other brands and showcasing their work is a highly effective and enjoyable way to grow her own audience, rather than relying on traditional self-promotion tactics. By sharing her expertise and experience with others, Jess is able to help other businesses succeed and reach their full potential.

The past year has been a roller coaster of events and lessons. One that brought many surprises, but also many lessons learned that will carry us into 2023. Each year brings new opportunities and challenges in life, and while it's tempting to look back on or even relive those events from last year, it's important to look forward.

I'm going to go ahead and make a bold prediction here: at the end of this year, we're all going to look back, with a new perspective on everything. Things will look clearer, brighter, and truer than ever.

What are the things we can learn from and what can we do differently? Know more about what I learned in 2022 and what I will be doing differently in 2023 by listening to this episode.
