Good evening everyone and a big welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope that you’ve had a good day! No matter what we have faced in this day, isn’t it good to know that God is there and that He can walk us thru the troubled times; that attempt to steal our joy?
My day started, by trying to wake up and turn off the alarm…lol. I don’t know about you; but when I’m in a dream, I find it difficult to get out of the dream and wake up. Who knows…maybe I’m secretly getting old and I don’t realize it yet…lol. Anyways…it seemed like the night flew by…and I guess that this could’ve had a little to do, with getting to bed a little later. All I can say is that I have God to be my strength…and thank goodness He was there for me today!
Right about now, you may be wondering why this lady was up so late last night. Well…I call it work; but at the same time, when it comes to God, I call it a blessing to serve Him. Anyways, I’ve been working on a project and no one has known about it, except for me and my husband.
The past two days, I’ve been compiling a blog, for about 13 of my books. Each page of the blog tells about the book and some of the pages have a little writing from me, as to how the book either came about…or even different things I felt and experienced, while writing the book. Also, some of the pages have some great reviews, which I’m sure God is so happy about…because you see, I don’t write to be popular…but I write, so God can be popular, in the eyes of those who need His encouragement.
Tonight, I just thought that maybe I could share a few of my favorite books with you and then I’ll give you the link to the blog and you can check them out. As we start…I think that the two most favorite books that I have written are “Time Alone with God: A Devotional Study for Discovering Renewed Hope in God” and “Baby Steps: A Personal Journey with God through a Lifetime of Pain and Heartache.”
To begin with…I think I’d like to talk with you about “Time Alone with God.” I have to tell you that this book truly amazed me, as it was coming together. After one of my surgeries, I was laid up for a while in my living room and I just decided to spend some time alone with God and do some writing. I had no plans on writing a book...I just wanted to do something to help myself at the time.
I would say that I spent about 4 hours a day writing and reading God’s word and just letting Him minister to me. After completing many writings…I thought to myself…I guess that I will just put these in a file and use them, as God leads me…never realizing that this was going to happen soon.
All of a sudden…out of the blue…God began to work with my heart and before I knew it, I was placing the writings in different piles, as God was leading me to do so. Before I knew it, I was seeing chapters and different book sections coming together…right before my very eyes. Here I had written, what I thought were separate writings…never realizing that God had a different plan…a plan to put together a beautiful 278 page book. To this day, I still stand in amazement, as to how this book came together!
Time Alone with God has so much to it; that will truly help you walk from a place of weakness, to a place, where you truly experience God and the love He has for you. It’s loaded with God inspired writings…tidbits of hope and Bible verses; that will truly help you to have a one to one Bible study with God. I really hope that you will check it out! I have it in e-book and paperback format, and the information is on the blog page.
My second favorite book that I have written is “Baby Steps: A Journey with God through a Lifetime of Pain and Heartache”…and I can truly say that it’s been a lifetime of pain and heartache. I have been experiencing some form of pain…surgeries…loss and deep heartache, since the age of five…and I am now 58.
“Baby Steps” will allow you to take a journey with me, thru the many difficult and almost hopeless moments of my despair…but at the same time, you will also be able to see how a great and mighty God stepped in and made a way for me. What a God and good friend He has been to me, for many years, even when I didn’t realize it.
I have to say that writing “Baby Steps” was quite the experience! In one of the chapters, I talk about returning to my grandfather’s grave, to find a way to forgive him and let go of the past and I have to tell you; that when I wrote this chapter, it was as if God had taken me by the hand and gently led me back to the past; so those feelings could be portrayed in the book. One thing I should say; is that we should never go back into the past without God leading the way because when we go alone; Satan will be right there, to lead us back into territory that may reopen the moments that should now be a part of the past.
You know…I could go on and on, about each book that I have written, with God’s help; but time won’t allow it right now. All I can say; is that each word…in each book that I have written, has truly come from the heart of God and I believe that when people read these words; that God will touch them, in the same way that He has touched me over the years.
Anyways…I need to go for now; but if you would like to visit the blog, where I have some of my books…here is the link. Thank you for spending these very special moments with me and I’m so glad that I was able to share an ounce of my life with you this evening.
I hope and pray that you will have a good night of rest. Take care…and I hope to see you tomorrow night, as I share my day, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
