Tough Times Produce Tough People
What would you do if you woke up one morning to find your house surrounded by 200,000 enemy soldiers? That was what king Hezekiah faced one day as recorded in Isaiah 36.
I have written a book which parallels this story of Hezekiah with the ministry Jane and I had in Sacramento and how God used those circumstances to build our faith.
The book is called, "Tough Times Produce Tough People"
Some years ago God led Jane and I into a ministry which tested our faith and commitment to service. He had called us to serve a homeless population that was steeped in drug addiction.
This book, Tough Times Produce Tough People, tells a little bit of our story and how we overcame great obstacles. It isn't just about us, or Hezekiah, it is about how you can gain the strength to endure the trial and win the victory.
We want you to have a copy so we are offering it to you as a gift. All we are asking is for you to register to receive our newsletter, Daily God Walk News.
The Daily God Walk News is a periodic newsletter reporting on how groups are using the Daily God Walk devotional as a tool in their Bible studies.
The newsletter also addresses issues of a deeper faith life, recovery from undesirable behaviors and it also has testimonies of how people have overcome obstacles in their journey of faith.
You get all of this at no cost to you. It is simply the ministry which God has put in our heart. You will also be offered other resources which you may find a blessing in your own ministry and walk of faith.
Below is an excerpt from the introduction to Tough Times Produce Tough People:
"The only people I know who have not gone through faith-trying trials since becoming believers are people who have not been believers very long. Virtually every seasoned believer I know has gone through times when they were up against the proverbial wall and had nowhere to go.
If you can identify with what I am saying then this book is for you. We tell the story of Hezekiah facing 200,000 trained and armed soldiers and how he responded to them. While we are telling that story we will weave in the story of New Hope Community and how God brought us through many trials to fulfill his plan for the people of that community.
I invite you to wrap your heart around the concept of going to the temple to seek the face of God that we present in this book. We have found that whenever you face insurmountable odds while attempting to do what you are convinced is the will of God then you must go to the temple, or to your place of prayer and seek the face of God until he comes through for you. God will answer, after all, it is his plan being threatened by the circumstances.
You will read about the power of having a dream. You will also be told to expect dream busters to come at you to destroy your dream. You will learn to be a dream builder and finally read what all people with a dream need to know.
Sit down, relax and get ready for a faith building experience."
