Another Chance

Genre: Christian 

Publishing Date: July 27, 2013

This book was very challenging for me, but it brought home the fact that I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. I was not up for writing this book, because I did not feel that my writing skills were up to par with society’s standards. God taught me to press on, and I truly learned that God equips you for whatever He has tasked you to do. My favorite saying is what God has for me is for me, and I believe that nothing will stand in the way of your destiny if you trust in God. Weather you believe it or not your life is planned and managed by God. This is my encouragement to you. So press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus, because you can do anything when you set your mind to it and put God first. You know what I mean when I say you feel something deep down in your spirit telling you to do something. I believe this is your nudging from God. You have already been given confirmation and are still hesitant to move forward. I was also like that and God sent several people to tell me to write this book. I pray that this book be used by God to strengthen your faith and give you hope as you press towards your future. Remember God has equipped you to go forth and conquer. You know He says in His word that you are more than a conqueror. Believe in Him!
