Standing While Things Are Falling

My wife and I had recently started a new church, we believed God to see this church grow, and we had many decisions to make. I had just left a full-time job and took on a part-time job out of town. It seems that everything I was trying to do to please God and to see the church grow was falling apart, but I knew God was amid it.

One of the ministers in our church, Lisa McCall, was teaching Bible study on Wednesday nights, and she started teaching about journaling, and that’s when my life began to change. I began to learn some new things about journaling and hearing God’s voice, so I asked God a question: “Lord, how can I continue to stand when it seems everything around me is falling apart?” God responded with ten steps. Those ten steps became a series that I preached and

are now the ten chapters of this book.
