Refined By The Fire: Stories From A Life Of A Fire Walker
So that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and “glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:7)
I will venture a guess and say that many of you reading this book are, as we speak, either walking in the Refiner’s fire, have just come out of that fire or unbeknownst to you – are headed for the fire.
I believe that there are few Christ followers in this world that have not been a fire walker at some point in their life. I know that I have. My life has been an on-going and amazing series of events that have afforded me the opportunity to learn and grow in my faith. Thus far I have had a remarkable life.
Has it been full of unicorns and pixie dust?
Absolutely not! It has not always been wonderful. It’s been a life of sickness, marriage, divorce, widowhood, murder, financial ruin, and my own personal cancer diagnosis… and that’s just the first half of my life.
However, it has also been a life of second and third chances in the repeated and continued blessed forgiveness from my Heavenly Father that sits on the Throne.
This book is a compilation of my life and my stories – it is a reflection of lessons learned. What I share with you here in these pages are my thoughts, stories, teachings, life events, and blessings, and not-so blessed blessings of what I have learned while in and amongst the Refiner’s Fire.
I pray that you will be blessed, and possibly inspired by these stories. But most of all, I pray that you will recognize your own time in the Refiner’s Fire and learn to embrace the process.
Be blessed and know that you are loved by the King!
