If you want to know what Scripture says, this book focuses on key passages. If you want to know about God, this book will
show the way. This book takes you through those tough times to make that God connection and, as you do, you’ll find
comfort, peace, hope and, most of all, that inner joy that comes from a vital connection to the Lord of all.
THE GOD CONNECTION goes beyond religion and tradition to a vital, real connection with our loving Creator.
POINT OF VIEW I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoices: my flesh also shall rest in hope. Psalm 16:8-9
I will look up
Not sit down
Not give up
I will hang on
And Trust God
No matter what
Help me, Lord, live my life looking for the positive, not the negative without denying truth…or You. Amen.
VOICE OF EXPERIENCE
I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13
Dad said, “How can you stand on the promises of God while sitting on the premises?”
Well, I’ve been sitting on my rear too long—giving up, doing nothing but vegetating.
I am standing up.
I am re-capturing my dreams
and creating new ones.
I am reaching for all God has for me,
no longer content with the status quo, or
believing the lie that this is all there is.
God has more for me.
I am claiming His promises
and that begins with
Help me, Lord, be confident not in myself, but in your plan and purpose for my life. Amen.

AMAZON: 5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!! December 1,
2014 By Karin Wisdom Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase This was an amazing book!! I sent it to several friends
who are going through difficult situations and they said they received so much help and inspiration from the author's words!!
We live in a culture
That pretends sin does not exist.
I know differently and yet…
How often do I follow this crowd,
In rebellion and frustration shake my fists,
By what I allow
In my thoughts, home, heart and mind?
Do my words and actions align
With the faith I claim,
Of Jesus Christ who came
Sinners to save?
Among sinners all,
I cannot judge what others have done
For I am one..
Maybe I, like the apostle Paul,
Need to bow and confess
My life's a mess.
Forgive me Lord.
Help me, Jesus, repent and return You,
Allow Your love to heal, restore, make me new,
That I might move beyond rebellion and sin
To be a light shining, helping others
Find joy of new life as they, too,
Let you in.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (KJV)
The more I hang on,
The more I go my own way,
The more desperate I become
When change happens
And it does. It will. Tomorrow, today…
How much better life goes when I place
My today and future in the safe hands,
Purposes and plans,
Protection and leading
Of my Creator, Savior, Lord and Friend
The eclipse of the sun
An inspiring occurrence
Which reveals the marvel
And mystery of creation.
Awed, I bow
Give thanks and ask
My Creator Lord to take away
The darkness inside
That He might reveal
The wonder of His love and light
We deal with seasonal cycles
Of cold weather and warm,
Cycles of night and day, blue skies and gray.
Accept these cycles as the norm.
We deal with life cycles as well,
Good and bad, highlights and lows.
In good times we rejoice and praise,
But in difficult times--where do we go…
When our own resources aren't enough to stop
The spiraling cycles of hurt and pain deep inside?
There is One who heals, makes whole.
But only when we turn and give Him control--
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for
I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. --Matthew 11:28-29 (NKJV)

I know He IS,
Christ Jesus lives,
Not because of church preaching,
Or memorized Bible passages.
For even when
I turned away,
Even on days of anger, rebellion, pain,
Even then, deep down, I knew
For in the deepest darkness and hurt within,
I did not find Him,
Jesus came and found
