Purpose: Five Minute Friday
About 8 years ago I met a wonderful man of God whose name is Ed Hird. Ed had written a book called Battle for the Soul of Canada, based on 1 and 2 Timothy. As he told me about his book I became impassioned to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. It made me realize that I hadn’t retired – I had become realigned to God’s purpose.
From that time forward I knew that God wanted me to write for Him, to meet others and discuss His Word. I started to blog, to faithfully attend Christian writers’ conferences and God blessed me with new friends and great conversations.
As soon as I read Ed’s book I felt called to write a Bible study to go with it. In the pursuing years I have had it edited a number of times but couldn’t find any way to publish it except by PDF. For a long time I gave it away.
This year I finally had it published with the help of Ruth Snyder in both print edition and Kindle and I couldn’t be happier. Finally I can hold it in my hands, work through the study again myself and discover anew how a Timothea should live.
God showed me my purpose that day and since then He has continued to lead me in new and exciting ways. (tweet this)
