You will laugh, you will cry, you will wonder at the greatness of the God who can take a life with little to offer and place him at the crossroads of major events in human affairs and still intersect with ordinary people in ordinary life in fascinating ways that reveal that, in God’s perspective, all of life and lives are important. There is a sheer joy in seeking to collaborate with God in His plan for your life; and wonder at the awesomeness of such a mighty God and Savior.
