Have you ever wondered why it seems like if anything could go wrong, it will?
Have you ever questioned if God has forgotten about you?
Have you ever pondered in your heart if anyone can see the pain you are trying desperately to hide?
Have you ever thought, If I don’t get this heart of mine fixed, I am going to be no good to anyone; especially myself?
If so, this book is for you. I was once there. I felt the hurt of loneliness, betrayal, disappointment, self-pity, and even defeat. But I survived, and so will you. God has placed something in you that will not allow you to break down, give up, or be conquered.
I remember a time when I was fifteen years old. I was in a church pageant. I recited a poem by Maya Angelou: “I’m determined to be somebody someday.”
Even in those moments of wanting to give up, God would allow me to reflect on the day I stood in the pulpit on 119th and Halsted in Chicago and tell myself, “I’m determined to be somebody someday.”
In this book, you will see my hurt, my pain, my setbacks. But most of all, you will see the faithfulness, mercy, grace, and the love of God.
Allow this book to be the process to start your journey to a “Renewed Heart” only Jesus can do for you.
