God Is Healing His Wounded Souls
For the last three weeks, I have been faced with some very intensely personal and professional challenges that have caused me to truly cry out to the Lord for wisdom and strength. I have been forced to perform a severe spiritual and personal inventory in order to seek the Lord for discernment and direction. As of today, I strongly believe that God’s will has been manifested and that His righteousness and justice will prevail for the good of all parties involved in this process of personal and spiritual growth.
One of the ways in which I believe that I have passed through my storm is on today, I received a royalty check from my first published book,” Suffering With Dignity: The Pathway To Ultimate Shalom.” https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/suffering-with-dignity-dmin-alonzo-thornton/1122021531?ean=9781478757078
It has been two years ago that God placed upon my heart, the inspiration and the ability to write this book. I literally have forgotten about it, how was it selling and if it was in fact, ministering to the souls of God’s people. Well little to my surprise, my book sells were increasing while my own spiritual warfare was increasing!
I encourage you to strongly consider purchasing your own copy!
Additional ways that I know that the darkness of the storm has dissipated is while I personally was driven toward isolationism, two loving couples have asked me to officiate their respective weddings. Also. while I was depressed and personally warring with myself, God leads into my path, many other deeply wounded and suffering souls, as His Holy Spirit assisted me in an effort to assist them in their own deep-seated spiritual, and emotional struggles.
Lord thank you for using me while I was feeling used up!
To Fear and Walk With The Lord
I have learned over the years that blessed is every one that fears the Lord;
whether he be high or low,
rich or poor in the world.
If a living soul will fear Him and walk in His ways,
all shall be well with those of us while we are living on earth.
By the blessings of God, the faithful ones shall get an honest livelihood.
Here is a double promise; we shall have something to do,
for an idle life is a miserable, uncomfortable life,
and we shall have health and strength, and power of the mind to do it.
Godfearers shall not be forced to live upon the labors of other people.
It is as much a mercy as a duty, with quietness to work and eat our own bread.
They and theirs shall enjoy what they get.
Such as fear the Lord and walk in his ways,
are the only happy persons, whatever their station in life may be.
In closing, I am forever indebted to the souls of those who without any fore- knowledge, have been assigned by the Most High, praying for me and with me in my most recent challenges. Equally, I am blessed beyond measure by those who continue to love me unconditionally.
Thank the many of you who daily, weekly, and monthly follow me and support my blogs and spiritual inspiration. I pray that God will continue to bless you and keep you.
Grace and Peace
Brother Alonzo E. Thornton
