The Journey: A Voyage Through the Jaws of Rejection
A Christian Memoir
Some of my earliest memories from childhood are ones of being hurt, being given up, or made to feel like I just wasn’t very special at all. There was love too, but it seems like the moments of ridicule and rejection are the moments we hold on to. These are the falsities we allow to take hold of our lives and mold the future decisions we make. I allowed the pain to take hold of me, control me, and weigh me down, limiting the life God had for me all along.
Wrong paths taken, broken relationships, feelings of emptiness; these can become an all too familiar scene for a person when they fall victim to the lies rejection can tell you. “I’m not pretty enough, or thin enough. No one can love me. I can’t succeed at anything, no matter how hard I try.” You become a prisoner to the world, unable to break free and live the amazing life God has for you
But He never left my side. Even when I didn’t acknowledge His presence, He was always there, with His mighty hand of protection on my life, calling me back, softly at first, but then stronger. He was able to show me true love and acceptance, unconditionally. I was able to return home to Him.
There are so many broken people in this world who are being held back from their full potential by the chains of past hurts in their life. For so long, for too long, that was me. Thankfully, I found healing in the One True King, and with His help escaped the jaws of rejection. This book tells my journey.
The New Order
A Christian Fictional Thriller
In an America after financial and societal collapse religion is affected. You must now pay to pray. This is the New Order.
The year is 2023, and the United States is on the mend from a devastating financial and societal collapse. In this new order the church has been affected. Religion is now a symbol of status, and church attendance is reserved for the wealthiest of society. With astronomical dues required to practice one’s faith within a group setting, the lower class is left without religious instruction. Worse yet, to enforce such a classist confinement of worship, it’s illegal to practice religion period if you can’t pay.
But young men will still desire to worship, and women will still need to be taught. We would fill that need for them. In fact, we would be unable to keep from it.
