“Like” Pray What God Says?

I was scrolling through my feeds on Facebook yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon and ran across a pleasant surprise. A Facebook Fav, Diesel (one of the distribution channels for my eBook), reflected 2 Likes to my post where I shared information about my book "Pray What God Says." Sometimes I don't click on the "Like" thumbs-up icon too much. Just the fact that someone took the time to appreciate their indulgence of my post makes me happy. But this time I clicked to see who posted the "Like" and to my surprise Justin William Bieber was one and Diesel was the other.
All I know about the young idol-icon Mr. Bieber is from my grandchildren and whatever I might happen to see or hear when sharing cable time with them. I clicked on the back link to see if was legit and it was, so I was happier. When I hopped back over to the Diesel FB page, I noticed he posted a "Like" to several other books in various genres. Then I hoped he wasn't having a "Like-Click-Kick" but truly sincere. Whatever the reason I want to say, Mr. Justin William Bieber, thank you for clicking the "Like" button. I am honored you took the time, but most of all I hope that you were able to get past the bookcover–the profile photo for all my posts–and investigate a sampling of the pages.
My desire and effort in writing my book is to share about Who has been the MEANS for keeping me safe and sane in the midst of storms and critical moments; the anchor that has kept me afloat when I was about to sink because of a LACK of faith, hope, love, comfort, strength, health, finances and overall well-being; and the ONE who I can talk to and share my heart with 24/7– 365. He is the Most High Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
So Mr. Justin William Bieber, I hope you did check out a few pages of my book. I also hope that if and when you experience what I just mentioned, just know that there is a Comforter, Helper, Burden-bearer, Provider, Way-maker, Protector, Healer, and most of all, Friend who is always available to turn to when you decide to allow Him to be all that He is and can be, to and for you.

The Chronicles of Connie

I am so proud to introduce a new book by my spiritual daughter, Ms. Constance Cooper. It is entitled "The Chronicles of Connie" available as an eBook. The paperback version will be launched later this month.  I hope you will visit the following link at to download and read a sample or purchase.

To follow is the foreword about Connie's project.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. –Revelations 12:11. In the early fall of 2010, I received a request from one of the commentary writers of the weekly news publication I work for. He knew a young lady by the name of Constance Cooper who was interested in publishing a book. Since I was a new author, he wondered if I wouldn't mind sharing how to self publish or at least forward Ms. Cooper to the resources that would help her achieve her goal. So I sent an email to her outlining in detail the steps I took to finish my book and I thought that would be the end of it. But after a few back and forth contacts via email, she and I eventually conversed with one another by telephone. It turned out to be the most enlivening conversation that ended in both of us praying for one another. Through subsequent conversations with Constance, I came to know that my first impression of her humility and sincerity was truly genuine. I agreed to at least copyedit her manuscript before forwarding her on to other resources for the publishing process.

I received her manuscript a few days later and decided to look at it the next day when I had free time. Despite being tired from a long day at work, curiosity got the best of me. So around 2:00 a.m. I decided to read just the introduction. I could not put it down! The anointing flew off the pages. As I read the manuscript I could feel that God had His mighty hand on Constance's hand as she typed her testimony. I know that God has people in hidden places who have been tried, broken, mended, restored to ultimately be revealed to the Body of Christ. These men and women who have submitted their lives to the processing of the Holy Spirit will be those that He uses to enlarge His Kingdom.

Ms. Constance Cooper is such a one who God is going to use to instill hope in a generation of people who thought themselves hopeless. This book “The Chronicles of Connie” is a vehicle from the vessel who will by the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, break yokes and set the captive free. Matthew 10:8 says that our reasonable service as the believer is to… Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give (KJV). We all as believers have been given the ministry of reconciliation…And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation. –2Corinthians 5:18 KJV.

Constance has revealed her diligence in evangelistically serving the Lord through her obedience in writing this book. She fearlessly tells the story of her life with a transparency about the struggles and the victories that is truly captivating. Throughout the pages, she gives all glory to the Lord God for all things, even for what is to come. For she knows and acknowledges that her times and seasons are in the hands of the Lord and He is yet making her to become what He has planned, purposed and destined for her life. To my spiritual daughter Constance: This is true humility, and if retained, it will take you to places, realms and dimensions that you have yet to fathom. Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. –Philippians 1:6 KJV

And finally, to every reader of “The Chronicles of Connie,” expect your miracle, healing and deliverance and your expectation shall not be cut off. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. –Proverbs 23:18 KJV.
