Alan T Black was raised and grew up in the United Methodist Church. While he proudly embraces his background and personal history within the United Methodist Church, he feels that ultimately what is important is not the denomination that you are a part of. What matters most is the relationship that you have with the Lord. Part and parcel to any relationship is the level of commitment that one makes to it. With any and all relationships they are going to take time to grow.
Through the years, he would describe his relationship with the Lord using one word… “Transformation.”
Continuing to grow daily in his walk with the Lord. As well as continuing to display the fruits of his Spirit daily is what his life is all about. Frankly for these times, his attitude and belief is that the world is looking to those who are Christians to see if in fact their talk does indeed match their walk.
As is the case with each of us,, he has experienced many twists and turns along the road of life. But each and every step along that road has lead him to this point in life; to humbly say that he is an author. Being able to say, “I am a Christian author,” to him, is the most important thing of all.
“To everything there is a time and season. Though I was unsure of what was in store for me, I am blessed to say that by just being obedient and trusting in the Lord I am now able to say and mostly importantly show others that God will qualify you and lead you to accomplish what His charge is for you by just being a willing servant. As this is a fact, what He has done through me, it was done so to give Him the glory.”
“Here I am Lord” is a book comprised of 35 essays written and posted as blog posts over a two year period. It is a refreshing alternative to conventional “daily devotion” ensembles, and is ideal for the Christian who likes to read without a specific schedule in mind. With captivating titles such as “Can You Hear Me Now”, “Identity Theft” and “The Magnificent Seven” the book promises to offer the reader many enjoyable and interesting moments of reading while drawing closer to the Lord
This journey that I am undertaking as a Christian writer is a work in progress. With this release of my second book I am continuing to be obedient to the Lord as much as possible. I will be the first to admit that I have found myself on many an occasion wondering why this was happening to me.
That being said I am reminded of the fact that with each of us we can attest to the fact that God will in the end see his purpose and mission fulfilled in us. It will come to fruition in the time and season that He has decided. As well He will equip us with what it is that we need to be of service.
