God is not done with you

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Harland Sanders, who you might know better as Colonel Sanders, had a difficult life. His father died when he was 5, he quit school at 16, and by the time he was 20, Harland had suffered every kind of setback imaginable. He lost jobs, and his young wife took their daughter and moved out.
Eventually Harland became a cook and dishwasher at a little café, his wife and daughter came back, and, together, he and his wife worked in the diner for decades.
When Harland retired at age 65, he became severely depressed, and even suicidal, when he realized that he and his wife could not live on his $105 monthly Social Security check.
As he sat down to write out his last will and testament, he began to think of things he still wanted to do in his life. He began to dream again for the first time in years.
And that's when he came up with the idea of selling chicken door-to-door in little boxes. And the rest, as they say, is history. You see, God gave him a brand new dream, and Harland ran with it!
As long as you are on this earth, God is not done with you. He is going to do something good with your life. That's the promise of God for everyone who believes!
AS LONG AS YOU ARE ON THIS EARTH, GOD IS NOT DONE WITH YOU.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
