The "One" for "One in a Million"

Congratulations to Kay (Notes From the Wall), who is the winner (picked by a random number generator) of Priscilla Shirer’s book, “One in a Million”!  I’m so happy for Kay.  She was one of my first blog friends, and has an incredible testimony of a faithful God amidst a grevious loss.  You’ll have to stop by her site and congratulate her.

Thanks for indulging me as I shared from this book.  I have one more quote for you from “One in a Million” – this one about Promised Land Living:

Promised land living is power, confidence, endurance, thankfulness. It’s spiritual fruit growing right at your fingertips. It’s boldness that can’t be shaken by anything, even when an earthquake is erupting all around you. No matter the noise level and magnitude.

It’s forgiveness, freedom, full expectation. It’s strapping on the armor and daring any devil in hell to try defeating what God is accomplishing in you.

Promised Land living is both loud and quiet, tough and tender; It’s everything you need it to be. It’s here. It’s now. And how! And wow! No comparison. No complaints. Please – no more complacency.” (p. 170)

That’s what I want! That’s what I pray that God is working in my life at this very moment! I pray to get there and S.T.A.Y.!

I also pray that for each of you…with much love for you all…
