I was working through a Scripture for a sermon not too long ago and was encouraged by a particular passage I wanted to share.

“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.  Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. ” James 5: 16b – 18

I started to wonder “Have I ever stopped rain with my prayers? Have I ever made it rain with my prayers? If Elijah is just a man like me, then what made him so special?”

On this anniversary of one of the worse events in our history, I am reminded of all the lives that were changed in so many ways. So many stories have emerged over the years that have brought tears, comfort, and our admiration of the fallen hereos.

Today, I want to share one of those stories with you. A few years back, a young woman named Yvette Gonzalez came to our church and shared her story. She was in the World Trade Centers when they were attacked. She was kind enough to let us record her talk and it was placed on our church website for any to hear. If you would like to hear her incrediable story and her thoughts on “Where was God when this happened?”, just click here, scroll down till you see “Testimony from Yvette Gonzalez”, and click download or stream to listen.

Prayers for our nation and for those touched in the most personal of ways…….

Today’s review is a book I was very much looking forward to called “Plan B” by Pete Wilson. He is a Nashville pastor who I follow on Twitter. Over the last year I have appreciated his outlook as well as his personal touch in responding to a few direct texts for myself. So, when I found out he was coming out with his first book, I was excited.

When I first got the book, I quickly skimmed the summary and thumbed through the contents and feared I was going to be disappointed. It seemed very basic, common sense, and not as deep as I hoped. I am thrilled to report that as I dug in and read more, my first impression was way wrong! I loved this book!

With the perfect balance of true life stories, honest and open sharing from his own life, and fresh perspectives on the life application of several Biblical stories… this book cuts to the chase for any who are experiencing life in  a different way than they expected. Going through tough days? Did your dream fall apart and you’re left with the pieces? Wondering why all your intentions fell short but it still seems like God is calling you? Angry at God because life isn’t what you thought it was going to be? Snag this book! Again, I say snag this book! Simply wonderful…..

I received this book from Thomas Nelson publishing for an honest review…..
