  1. I know the Lord led me to your site today! A fresh touch of revival has been taking place within my life, and the Holy Spirit reminded me of Philippians 2:17 and 2 Timothy 4:6. The Holy Spirit, deep with my spirit and soul, is working. Wonderfully saved 51 years ago at age 25 — delivered from being raised in New Age, Rosecurcion doctrine, etc. was a “bad mix.” However, God’s faifhfulness has adorned my entire life. For years I’ve suffered with multimple health issues, but He has kept me alive! I have remained in ministry since being born again, by His faithfulness and grace —- need prayer at this time as I am taking on something new. I’m beginning a Bible study for women at a local restaurant — wanting to bring in the lost and Christians that need strength. My flesh would rather remain home in my chair- lift, and the use of my walker, in the comfort of my small apartment, but His love compels me not to spend so much time being comfortable! I’m not a professional writer, but write quite a bit anyway, for a local church page, small booklets, one self published book, and use facebook for an opportunity to prise the Lord. My most recent healing is a tumor on my sciatic — it simply disappeared prior to pending surgery —– also healed of uterine cancer — and more. Thank you so much for your article about not wasting our life —– it encouraged me more than you will ever know. May God bless you and your lovely family! Again, thank you for your prayers. I know this is written poorly, but I don’t have time to rewrite it today. Blessings, Patricia Martin

    Thanks for sharing all the books you’ve read! I just found a blog and was blessed by it. If I may, I would like to recommend a powerful book that I just read (and am telling everyone I know about it!) that has positively changed my Christian walk forever. I’ve included the link below. Thank you!
