Has the storms of your life surged high and gained energy, power and ferocity? Has the violent verbal waves of the enemy's fury pounded and pushed hard against you? Has the torrential down pours of slanderous and malicious accusations raged against you in a season of adversity? Has Satan sought to take a position that does not belong to him, attempting to meticulously focus your attention on the circumstances that surround you? "Child of God," 'Don't Fret, ' Christ is your vessel and you can simply smile at the storm; you are a summit climber For on the hard rocks and deep slopes of life's experiences, through every trial, test, and battle, know that God is in control of good and evil, men and angels and even the devil and his wicked militia. He is the maker and master of all and if you press through the darkness until it makes sense, robbing it of its treasures, you will gain priceless wealth from all of life's lessons and you will win "The Battle for Center Stage." Gerald Griffith, since the age of nine, has continued to give his life and service to the kingdom of God. He has allowed the Lord to take him through experiences of deep brokenness and crushing, so that the life of Christ may be revealed within him, that he may have fellowship and union with God through entrenched suffering. Integrity of character and an unwavering love for the Lord are hallmarks of his life. He has dedicated his testimony for the benefit of readers who are seeking to understand their circumstances and be drawn closer to the Lord. In humility he strongly embraces God's message of hope with a burning desire to see the church of Jesus Christ set free. This writing is being released with the hope that it will be a tool in the hand of the instructor - "The Holy Spirit."
