Lillie Rhodes Manley felt God’s call to serve Him through her writing and poetry, which she has done through contributions in daily devotionals in “The Upper Room,” Christian magazine articles, and memorial prose and poetry for her local country church, and her much loved community of Blue Goose in Lexington, Tennessee.
She says she humbly thanks God for giving her the desire to write for Him many years ago, and then teaching her to be patient and let Him lead the way instead of trying to do it herself. She says, “I have learned that His timing is always so much better than mine.” “I didn’t learn this overnight,” she says. “I am still learning day by day to just let Him lead me. I thank Him for people He has put in my path, especially my trusted family and friends who pray with me and have the love of our God in their heart.
