ACAD – Remnant: 1 Kings 22

Ahaziah, son of Ahab, began to reign over Israel in Samaria; he reigned two years over Israel. He did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father and mother[.] He served Baal and worshiped him; he provoked the Lord, the God of Israel, to anger, just as his father had done.

ACAD – Remnant: Exodus 10

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his officials, in order that I may show these signs of mine among them, and that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I have made fools of the Egyptians and what signs I have done among them—so that you may know that I am the Lord.”

ACAD – Remnant: Genesis 45

“I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life…. God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors.”

“Honestly, I’ve been enjoying reading your book as I proofread it. The last few books I’ve proofread/edited have been a really technical healthcare-related manual and a very academic history book, so I’m relishing the opportunity to work on something that is more personal and lively.

I’ve experienced the sadness, joy and frustrations of your life as I read through your manuscript, and there have been some lessons I’ve picked up on that I can apply to my own life.

I definitely think you have something in this book that can help others. What you have to offer is a sensitivity coupled with an intelligence, both of which you’re willing to really “put out there.” Your sensitivity allows you to really feel your pain or happiness and reflect upon those emotions. Your intelligence affords you the chance to dissect your experiences and understand what they mean, as well as find ways to communicate them to others so that they can benefit from them. Not everyone can do that.

I look forward to reading more, with the hope that your book ends on a very positive, hopeful note…. with you overcoming the obstacles and pitfalls of life to continue to find happiness and self-fulfillment.

Thanks.”

“This morning, like the past several weeks, I’ve been out running before sunrise. Time permitting I’ve been reading a chapter or two from your book when I get back. I was going to text you this morning just to say Hi and wish you an encouraged and wonderful day but then one text message turned into two and since it was before 7 it seemed best to reconfigure the medium of communication and send it a little less indirect so you could look at it when both your eyes were fully open and you had consumed your morning beverage of choice (oj,tea,coffee).

The book is continuing to be a good read for me and from one single person to another a lot of what you say testifies to what is in my heart or the Lord is revealing to me about myself. On the other hand, there is a whole different list of ideas I look forward to discussing with you because for every thought that makes me want to say “Yaw, Heay Der I Know Watcha Mean, Yeah, Eh?” (I think that is Yooper for “Say it loud sista”) there is another thought that seems foreign to me. Anyway, that is a conversation that I look forward to at another time.!”
