Life Surrendered

Category : Blog, Uncategorized
It’s a storm day on the Island, and no one has to get up and go anywhere today. As I sit in the darkened home in a big chair, wood furnace humming, hot mug of coffee, I am thinking how wonderfully blessed I am.
Nearly 20 years ago now, a business failure, (not able to borrow money for years), and a marriage problem, where I had to leave home for 3 months, living in a north shore cabin without power in March: Life is a lot of things.
I had a Choice. I choose to do things my way, and pay no attention to what I knew was right. God said I could. He also said it was a bad idea. He said he loved me and he wanted to keep me from as much trouble as possible, because even if you do follow HIS WAY you will still have (trouble), but, God will be there to help.

Repentance required.

Very difficult crawl back people, but I want to tell you that God has done what he said he would do. He restored my relationship with Colleen and our family. Right now our seven children are no more that thirty minutes away from us. He takes care of us, and he has blessed me. My LumberShacks business does well enough that I am able to stay home in the winter months. Our fabulous old home is all paid for, so is my old truck, car, lands, ect. Debt free.
God is amazing!
Thing is people, that is what he wants to do for you as well. Why not get a copy of His best-seller {The Bible} and get on board with his plan for you today. You won’t be disappointed. Oh ya, when I am done on this planet, I get to spend eternity with Jesus in a mind-blowing place, because he died on a cruel cross, and rose again, to pay the penalty for my sin so that I could be declared Not Guilty! Thank You Lord!
