Mind, Body, and Soul
AuthorHouse, 2008 - 260 pages
This book is about one mans life, mine, and how this life has been transformed into what God intended it to be in the first place. There are so many bible stories that I can relate to because of the trials and tribulations that I have gone through, most specifically the last 5 years, but also all of my life. The book is not to glorify me but instead to speak to how great of a God we have who can bring you peace and joy in your life no matter your circumstances. It's a story that does not even come close to resembling anything like the American Dream, or a life that anyone would choose given the choice. But a life that through it all, has found the truth, the way and the light in the Glory of God! And a life that if I had the choice to do over again, would not change a thing with it, for fear I would not get to this same place of total peace, joy and Love no matter what life throws at me. We all have trials and tribulations. We all have our own issues to deal with. This book is not to make mine bigger than anyone else's, or to compare hurts, but instead it is to help you find your way to this incredible peace through your hurts, as I have. And to help you find the truth that God tells us about through scripture. For 40 years of my life, I stumbled through Christianity, trying to understand what God was trying to tell me through his word in the bible. For forty years I did things my way, and using scripture to support my sinful behavior, instead of allowing it to crucify the evil in my spirit. And then when I finally came to the end of myself, because of severe trials, how God lifted me up from the dead. To be able to live life to the fullest. This book is written from a differentperspective than most Christian motivational books, as there is nothing special about me. As a matter of fact, based on my past sinful history, I am the most likely candidate to write a book about the teachings of God, and how to apply them to life. But then again, God works in mysterious ways and uses the least likely men and women to accomplish his goals. And this book is an example of this, because most of the preachers and authors who write these great books about what life is about come from a totally different perspective. Most of them have lived a fairly straight forward good life, and have not allowed themselves to be over come with sinful behavior that puts them in bondage as have I. Up until I was transformed by the Lord and set free from the bondage of sin, everything these preachers talked about seemed for other people and not for a man like me. Through out those 40 years I either thought that I did not have issues and was good enough to deserve God in my life and did not realize there was even any bondage on my soul. Or after hitting rock bottom, realized just how bad of a man I am, and felt like God would not ever forgive me. I know God well these days. I know the reason he had a man like me write this book. It is a book for all men and women to read. Because maybe you were like me initially where you think you are good and deserving of the mercy of God? Or maybe you were like me after the hard fall, where you realize that you are not deserving of God. Which ever place you are at in life, hopefully this book will bring you to the place I am now, where you to will know you are not worthy of God period. But also, you will learn what the true meaning of God's amazing grace isabout. You will learn just how merciful of a God we have. The hope is you to will find the Lord God and be released of the bondage of sin on your soul no matter where you are in life.
