God Is For Us

I'M A CHRISTIAN...NOW WHAT?

I originally wrote this as a letter of encouragement to Ruth Godsdaughter...but it was too long for her 'comments' section on her page..so I'm blogging it instead...lol...wordy preachers ha:

Dear Ruth:

I woke up early one morning about three years ago. My life had suddenly changed. Everyone I cherished had been lost in a storm.

My wonderful wife of nearly ten years, 3 sons, one daughter, my wife’s parents, and brother, my mother, my only sibling (brother), his wife and their 2 sons…all gone at once.

In addition the storm destroyed 3 luxury investment homes, our personal home and my thriving, very lucrative business. I was left, I thought, without anyone or anything. I was 55years of age, homeless, beat up, broken emotionally, physically and Spiritually.

I cried the deepest, most painful tears that I had ever experienced…for four straight months. I couldn’t eat. I went 21 days without any solid food…only water and a half gallon of apple juice was all that I could force on myself. I lost 35 pounds in 21 days.

Then I developed early stages of prostrate cancer.

I turned to God. He had been calling me since early childhood to a full time ministry. It was time that I pay attention.

In my broken prayers, for what seemed to be an eternity, I asked Him to let me watch Him at His Work…and then write and report on it. Specifically I wanted to know that miracles really do still happen. I knew that it was a proper prayer because God never says no to anyone who asks for a job to do. He has individually custom designed, AMAZING jobs for us all…and I knew that watching His miracles was a sure way to build my own faith. I also knew that money could not be a motivator, that He would provide all the tools and teach me how to use them.

And so began my journey, my personal journey, with Him…and it has been very interesting lol…never a dull moment ha : -) He has a life just as fulfilling for each of His children, all we have to do is ask and then obey without question…pure trust at work.

I’m looking forward to talking to you, in the next couple of days…please send me a time (my time) to call you so we don’t end up burning the minutes on phone tag : -) Any time after 2pm Tues-Friday…or anytime Sat., Sun., Monday.

Love in Christ…mark
