From the Publisher
I could imagine that most senior citizens approaching seventy years of age might look back on their life and wish that they had accomplished more. The author of this book would be no exception. But praise the Lord, he has very few regrets. He has had the great privilege to see God do things in his life he never expected that He would, and he has a wife and family that bless him every day—things that money could never have purchased, even if he did have more of it.
In the book of Acts, as Peter and John were walking through the temple courts in Jerusalem, a crippled beggar asked them for money. Peter’s answer to him was simply, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you...” (Acts 3:6, ESV). I would tell my family the same thing. What I do have, money can’t buy. And they can have it too. God can be just as real for them as He has always been for us. And when He promises them, “I am with you,” they will never lack any good thing.
If I were being totally honest, I do have one major regret in life: I wish I could have told more people about Jesus, and would have been a bolder witness. But I am praying that, by God’s grace, the books I have written will perhaps accomplish what I didn't. People that I haven’t met, in places that I never went, can still read what I have written. And like that little boy’s lunch—in Jesus’ hands, five loaves of bread and two fish, or maybe even my four books and one life, can still feed a multitude. With God, all things are possible! Hallelujah!
