It is said that everyone has a story to tell, which is very true. We are all unique individuals, with God given gifts and a specific purpose. Our experiences are varied and incomparable.
You have a story and I have a story, each individual and unique.
The question has been asked of me why I wanted to write my story, specifically my recently released book, titled Overwhelming Pursuit: Stop Chasing Your Life and Live. Although not autobiographical, it does include stories from my life, giving examples to the lessons I learned and that I am so passionate about sharing.
So why did I write this book? There are three very specific reasons:
- My life has been absolutely transformed in understanding the unconditional love and forgiveness of God
- I don’t hear the lessons I’ve learned (my message) delivered anywhere, definitely not consistently, inside or outside the Church
- Given how dramatically my life has changed, I am convicted to share the message with as many as possible
So, let’s look at each individually.
My Life has been Dramatically Transformed
I had a dramatic conversion experience in March, 2006, which began my journey of going from overwhelmed to a life of peace, joy, and fulfillment. As such, I learned not only that in understanding God’s love that the unimaginable is achievable, but that God made each of us with very unique gifts and put us on this earth for a special purpose. God made each us for greatness. That includes you.
The Message is Not Being Delivered
I believe that if every Priest, Pastor, or Minister, across all of Christianity, gave every homily, sermon, or message, every Sunday for the next 5 years, on the topic of God’s unconditional love, that it wouldn’t be enough because WE JUST DON’T GET IT. It’s a message that so desperately needs to be delivered, given how absolutely life changing it is. But the fact is, we rarely (never) hear that message. It’s not given in our Churches or anywhere else in society.
I am Convicted to Share It With As Many As Possible
The change in my life is so dramatic, that I am convicted to share it with as many people as possible, so as to positively impact their lives. Given our technology savvy world, the means to do it include my website (www.MarkJosephMinistires.com), blogs, social media, my book, and speaking engagements. I’m convinced, given my personal experience, if more people knew God’s love that not only would they no longer be overwhelmed, but that the world would be a different and better place.
In addition to the above, it’s going to take prayer, you for me and me for you. I’d obviously love for you to read my book and engage with the resources on my website (I truly believe that they can significantly help you on your journey), but more importantly, we need to pray for one another, that we all come to understand and internalize God’s unconditional love, which is the only thing that can put us on the path to peace, joy, and fulfillment.
So, I invite you to join me on this journey. Become part of the movement.
God Bless you on your Path to Peace, Joy, and Fulfillment!!!
