Foreword Progress

Hopefully, by the time you read this, I will be finished with chapter 5 of my book.  I have 4 more to go.  I have been relentlessly determined to get all of the information out of my head and onto the Kindle App I’m using to write.  I can’t thank you guys enough for the prayers.  I know they are working on so many levels.  I decided to say a prayer, and then have you read the foreword for my book.

Lord, I pray for every reader that reads this today.  I pray that today they may walk one step at a time.  I pray that they live moment by moment so aware of Your presence.  Help us to be more than conquerors and enjoy the day . . . regardless of what we have to do.  Let our lights so shine before men that others see our good deeds and glorify You, Our Father in heaven.
I have always loved reading The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan.  In fact, along with the Chronicles of Narnia, I try to it every few years.  The main thing I like about Pilgrim’s Progress is that every time I read it, I’m someplace different in the book.
I wish I had read it as soon as I became a Christian.  I believe it would have helped me tremendously.  In my heart I always believed that early on in my walk with the Lord I simply should have been further along than I actually was.  John Bunyan’s book, along with his testimonial book, Grace Abouning to the Chief of Sinners, taught me that it is okay to be a work in progress.
My book is not nearly as cool as Pilgrim’s Progress, but what I hope that it does is allow you to find exactly where you are in the process, realize that it is perfectly okay to be at this place in your life at this exact moment in your life, and know exactly what to do about it.  The last time I read Pilgrim’s Progress, I was in the Valley of the Shadow of Death.  I was ready to quit ministering and turn back.  I felt God telling me, “Adam, keep going forward, for the journey back is longer than the journey forward.”  This helped me to endure to the end.  I was motivated to march forward with my Lord and never look back. I made it through that particular valley.
This is my hope and prayer for you, the reader.  I hope that this first time through, you see exactly where you are in the process and it propels you forward in His Name.  Then, should you find yourself stuck in your spiritual walk in the future, you pick up this book and you see that you are in a different place this time.  Once again, you figure out exactly what to do and continue to walk humbly with your God.
Lord, let your power and presence be all over this little book with these words that You have given me.  Help us all to complete the process and be what You created us to be.
