A Note From Priscilla Shirer
I watched her. For days. For weeks. For months that turned into years.
This woman was filled with God power, overwhelmed with His joy and consumed with His peace. She heard Gods voiceon a regular basisand was seeing evidence of His presence in the regular rhythms of her life. She would pray and then believe. Expect and then see. Ask and then receive.
So I watched her. She was a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a regular woman with problems and concerns just like mine, and yet her life was different in so many ways. More than anything I wanted what she had, and I was determined to figure out how to get it. Our first conversation over two piping hot cups of tea began with a shower of questions. I just couldnt help myself. I was so curious about her relationship with God and how what shed learned on the pew had become such a startling reality on the pavement of her life.
That first conversation led to deeper, more intriguing ones that kept me on the edge of my seat. Like a little schoolgirl with my chin in my hands, I soaked in her wisdom and reveled in the times she laid her hands on me and prayed. A refreshing friendship developed, and I was challengedchallenged to be one of the few who would refuse to trust God with an ordinary faith or settle for a complacent walk with Him. I was compelled not just to hear about God on Sunday but to expect to experience what Id learned about Him throughout every other day of the week. I wanted more . . . more of Him, more of His Spirit, more of His gifts, more of His fruit, more of His power and His manifest presence in my life.
I must admit, its been quite a surprising journey. But once my appetite had been whet, there was no turning back. I was ruined. Mundane Christian living would no longer suffice. Not then, not now, and by Gods grace, not ever again.
Im so thrilled that you are with me for this ride because having company makes any road trip more fun. This expedition began for me several years ago and is still in progress. Gods call from mundane Christianity to a radical experience of Him has taken me down roads that, honestly, have been quite narrow. Not many travelers have chosen to take this route. Not much has changed in two thousand years. Approximately two million Jews were freed from Egypt with the opportunity to experience the milk and honey promised by Yahweh. Yet only two of that original multitude would ever walk on Canaans soil.
Thats a startling ratio. Two in two million.
Hmmm . . .
One in a million.
I guess I can see why many dont choose to go all the way with God. Ive sure been in that category myself at times. Its easier to stay on the main road where there are more people and far less uncertainty. And besides, the travel aint easy when youre headed in the direction of abundant living. While Id like to tell you that the sun has glistened on every leg of the trip and the cool winds of ease and convenience have brushed across my face without incident, I cant. On the contrary there have been some days when Ive had to take cover from the storms that life often brings. On occasion Ive had to whisper a prayer for help when loneliness knocked on my front door and came in to stay a while. When Ive met other travelers willing to brave these winding roads, our eyes have met and an instant heart connection has been made. Without having to say much, weve encouraged each other to continue.
I thought I knew where God was taking me when I first started out, but each leg of this voyage has led into territory Ive never seen before. Sometimes its exciting, and other times its daunting. Either way, its a ride Id rather take with you.
I cant guarantee you much, but I can say with full confidence that you wont be bored. Gods way is too unusual and mysterious for boredom to even be an option.
Its been quite a ride so far, and I dont want to encounter whats next by myself. In the pages of this book, well traverse spiritual territory that will cover mountain peaks and deep valleys, grassy knolls and barren sand dunes, but the journey will be worth it. With the turn of each page, you and I will round another corner. What well meet around one bend will bring a smile to the depths of our souls, while others will create a sting of conviction that will send us straight to our knees. Either way, the prize of abundant living will make the trip well worth it. So buckle up and grab a venti size latte. You are in for the ride of your life.
Looking forward to taking the trip with you,
