Publisher's Description

Draw closer to God in the ordinary moments of the day
Headline: Draw closer to God in the ordinary moments of your day.

Through lyrical anecdotes, Southern wit, and scriptural reflection, Pastor Thomas Steagald offers this sprawling oak of a work, rooted deeply in a life of prayer. This sepia-toned memoir takes you on Steagald’s daily pastoral rounds from pre-dawn rising to a rest found only in the assurance of Christ’s mercy. In between is a richly- textured account of little moments seized for consecration – prayers in the shower, coffee at Hardee’s, choir practice and the surprises that test our perception of what in our lives is God’s business. “It is our faith, and by faith I really mean trust, that no person, no situation, no circumstance exists without Him, or devoid of Him, or apart from His grace.” So it is that Steagald dismantles the strict compartments of our ordinary” lives and invites us to offer our entire beings to Christ.
