Born into the Muslim faith, raised in the Middle East, immigrated to the U.S. for a new life with his brother's American widow and daughter, and after years of resisting the call of Christ, surrendered -- just in time to be defrauded by his business partner, slandered, victimized by racial and political prejudice, and falsely accused of crimes he never committed. The purpose of this personal story is not to obtain sympathy. It is shared to let people know the reality of what Max faced over a two-year period. Max forgives every person who harmed him or attempted to harm him. Through forgiveness, Max moved forward in faith, trusting God in every aspect of his life. Daily Max confessed "I am righteous in Christ Jesus. I have right standing with God just like I had never done anything wrong." This book was written to encourage people who are experiencing great trials and have given up hope. If you feel that you have hit bottom, that there is no way out or that life will never be as good as it once was, then this book is for you. In desperate situations, it is often humanly impossible to correct past decisions or remove the deep pain they cause. Only Jesus Christ can transform despair to victory. Consider totally surrendering your life to Him. Read the Bible and speak God's promises out loud. Make a DECISION to trust and believe God completely, no matter what your circumstances look like. Anything is possible with God. Make a simple but sold-out determination to live in faith. God will not disappoint you. Mark 9:23 New International Version "'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for one who believes." Luke 1:37 King James Version For with God nothing shall be impossible.
