We pray that it never will happen. But there have been times I have been forced to walk alone in life. So alone! I shared my story to inspire other but today I was inspired. Our family visited a church today where I collided with a women unexpectedly. She stopped me and after greetings she said, “I have read your book, ‘Knowing And Yielding To The Voice That Counts’ cover to cover,” She said. “Your book has put action in my life,” said. She continued to share how she always desired to go on a mission trip and help others but kept procrastinating. She said after reading this book, she is now signed up for a mission trip and does not want to live her live the way she lived. What a blessing it was to me to hear the effect of my story on her. I am inspired by testimonies like this out of the blue. People I don’t know. I praise God that He helped me shake off the dust and continue to dream, act and live. Don’t wait for your life to run out. Live your dreams step at a time. God bless. “3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, 5 for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” (Philippians 1:3-6).
