THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF A LIFE
"Sometimes things happen to us we cannot understand or explain."
A job loss you didn’t see coming, a major illness, the betrayal of a mate, or the loss of a loved one, can all be devastating. Any one of these events can turn our lives upside down, not to mention experiencing them all at once. In a single day, life can completely change and leave us feeling off-balanced, overwhelmed, and totally out of control. “Why did this happen to me? If God is such a kind and loving God, how could He allow such a thing?” From many perspectives, we may believe life is not fair. But is it?
The Incredible Journey Of a Life describes what happens when a soul experiencing the unbearable pain of adversity collides with the raw and negative emotions brought upon by fear, anger, perceived abandonment by God, and the uncertainty of a life in distress. While many of these writings are beautifully and passionately crafted, others are wildly provocative and intensely thought-provoking. However, they draw readers into the gut-wrenching heartache and overwhelming loneliness being felt as a spirit slowly and insightfully works through adversity.
Finally, for many of us, the pandemic forever changed our lives. This book helps bring perspective to numerous unresolved feelings you may have experienced resulting from a Covid journey. At the same time, it:
reveals pathways for not just surviving adversity but thriving in life;
provides tools and strategies for building your faith, resilience, confidence, and wisdom;
lists practical steps that could reveal your purpose, leading to an exciting breakthrough that successfully transforms your life.
The Incredible Journey Of a Life may not be for everyone, but during uncertain times, it could be exactly what you need.
"When experiencing overwhelming circumstances, our focus is usually on what the pain it is doing to us rather than what it is doing for us." Steven LeMons
EXCERPT FROM THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF A LIFE
Thank you for purchasing this collection of writings. Before you begin, please know that this body of work might not be everyone’s cup of tea. In my previous career as a successful businessperson enjoying my version of the American Dream, reading this book may not have been my first choice. I had a lucrative career and a beautiful family. I was living at the right address, in the right neighborhood, and even drove the right cars; however, without warning, adversity struck and completely obliterated life as I knew it. I would have read anything that could have shown me a way out of my situation during that time.
Needing to understand what was happening to me, I was forced to assess every aspect of myself and answer questions I had never had to consider or think about before. However, the answers to these questions or solutions to my issues did not come immediately. For years, I was trapped in perpetual torment that mercilessly continued for what felt like centuries. These writings document what my soul felt as it cried out in unbearable pain while attempting to process fear, anger, and feelings of abandonment and depression. These writings, while at times are passionately intimate, and during others, wildly provocative, allow you, the reader, insight into the depths of the heartache and loneliness I felt while struggling to find solutions to end my adversity.
During that time, I vacillated in my relationship with God. In these writings, I share personal conversations and arguments I had with Him as I pleaded for relief which for a time did not come. In addition, I bore the enormous burden of guilt and disappointment for letting my family down.
This book lays bare what unbridled emotions and a broken spirit sound and feel like under extreme pressure and without options. Finally, these writings represent a determination to survive, the earning of wisdom, confession, growth, and eventually, transformation and rebirth. Through my journey, I share how the power of prayer, hope, belief in yourself and God allow incredible breakthroughs to occur. Through the worst of struggle and adversity, I have found how one can still emerge victoriously by listening closely to God’s voice, regardless of the situation. These writings express my discovery.
Please realize that I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be on any of these pages. I continually struggle with weaknesses and faults, just as anyone else; however, I understand that throughout life, we all will encounter situations and trials much more significant than ourselves. The incredible power, strength, and determination to succeed exist within us. When those traits align with the purpose God intends for us, divine success becomes inevitable.
So, whether you are currently facing a life challenge or not, yet choose to read further, I believe you will uncover lifelong lessons resulting in a deeper understanding of yourself. Additionally, I believe you will gain tremendous insight into building the inner drive necessary for strengthening your relationship with God. You will be poised to access all the benefits of His undying love and best for you. I wish you the absolute best.
