Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

I'm meeting a couple of friends today to talk about books I want to write. Ideas have been spewing from my brain and I feel the well filling. In preparation, I looked through some old files from computers that have long ago given up the microprocessors. One file I found is from way before any of the mold stuff ever happened to us. It was a non-fiction idea that I was massaging at the time that has never been seen by anyone but my agent and me. Here’s the book as I conceived it a few years ago:


I would first define abundance. It’s not material possessions or a big house, but contentment of the soul. Then, in each chapter, we’d look at Biblical characters who faced adversity (Joseph, Job, Paul), and compare those with modern-day believers who have had their teeth kicked in by life or the church or both.

The basis for the book is Psalm 66:8-12:

Praise our God, O peoples,
let the sound of his praise be heard;
he has preserved our lives
and kept our feet from slipping.

For you, O God, tested us;
you refined us like silver.

You brought us into prison
and laid burdens on our backs.

You let men ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance.

This entry is uncanny to me, looking at it now. I think God was preparing us for a test, a refinement, a prison and some burdens. He let some men ride over our heads and lead us through fire and water. And even though we're not fully through yet, we have abundance because we have Him.

When thinking of Abundance, I wonder how often we think of 'more than enough". Scripture talks about an abundant life in Christ but I doubt if any of us have more than enough of that. Whatever we have, most of us do have enough to share both spiritually and financially.

Exactly what I needed to read today. Thank you for sharing this passage from Psalm 68. Write the book...I'm sure you have the material from your own life experiences.
