God Is in Control of All Things at All Times
This book is the story of one person’s life; however, in the broader sense, it touches the lives of a multitude of people everywhere It is a story about faith, love, and hope.
It’s a story first of my faith in God, although a shallow faith at times, stemming from a lack of knowledge and understanding of His word and being raised in an environment that lacked the promotion of God’s word as a way of life. Next, the love of God that is never ending, unfailing, consistent, loyal, faithful, and an unconditional love. Finally, hope—a four-letter word that has the supernatural power to transform that which was once dead into life, a beautiful life with a good future. In addition, hope is the push behind perseverance that helps a person achieve success in spite of challenges, great or small. Hope is the propeller that helps to lift a person out of the lowest times in their life and propels them to unimaginable heights.
As you read this book, you will see how my life was catapulted into seasons of darkness, yet through that darkness, the light shown greater as it came bursting through the darkness from the power of who is on the inside. “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4, KJV). When you read this book, instead of focusing on the bad events or words of darkness by the evil one that were intended to destroy me, focus on the acts of the Heavenly Father and my beloved Savior Jesus, who lives in my heart, for all of the miraculous things they have done in my life.
We may go through bad events in life, but we don’t go through them alone, and Jesus won’t allow them to destroy us. Scripture tells us in Revelation that we overcome (conquer, prevail, be victorious over), by the blood of Jesus and the word of our testimony (what you witnessed). “And they [God’s people] overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb [Jesus] and by the word of their testimony” (Rev. 12:11, KJV).
This book is a testimony that God is in total control of all things and that we are overcomers through Jesus the Christ (the Anointed One). In life, we may face situations that are unbearable, hurtful, sad, or challenging; but we can trust that God will never fail us.
