An old friend messaged me and asked me how I have been lately. I gave her the following praise report. I hope my story uplifts and encourages you in the knowledge that God is a faithful deliverer who makes a way of escape for them that call trust Him and call on His righteous name. be Blessed!

"I've been blessed in very odd ways.
I lost my job, things with my wife got tense and a bit rocky, we dwindled our savings to just over 100 dollars.
i realized that i could NOT handle the situation that i was in so I did the only thing that was left to do....I called on God.
The wife and I gave up a honeymoon in order to go to a national Church convention in Shepherdsville, KY and it was there in an early morning prayer meeting that God came on the scene
I began to realize that Lindsey and I had been far too comfortable and had begun to rely on ourselves instead of on God. In the moment that I realized this, my pride finally broke and I literally got on my knees before Him and confessed my inadequacy and my deep need for Him. Now, not even two months later, both the wife and I have new, better paying jobs underneath better supervisors.
My wife and I have made great financial headway (We have paid off and are more reliant on God and more readily willing to trust him than ever before, though we still have plenty of room for growth in that area. So, in conclusion, He didn't take a single thing away that he did not replace with something better, and I thank Him and I glorify His holy name for the great things he has done for me personally. I know that he can do the same for you if you will let him. So take the leap of faith to call on him. Prayer doesn't have to be long, poetic, or even clearly stated. God already knows your heart but this one thing i have found to be true: God is a gentleman and a gentleman only goes where he is welcome. So don't worry about the mess within or around you. Just come to him as you are,  let him clean you up, and remember (as one of my favorite songs so clearly states) God can do anything with anything.

For me it's The Writer (or The Student? The Singer? The Weirdo? The Nerd?) , 8 regenerations, my brown hooded sweater, no one cuz I don't text (oh, well, Lizzie actually) and (I just use this word a lot) "Delightful! Wonderful! Perfect!" sarcastically. Or maybe "That's not creepy at all..." :D What about you guys?

Hey everyone! My name is Jack Dowdy and I just published my first poetry anthology. It sells for ten dollars on www.createspace.com and will be on Amazon.com within a week. Let's be real, that is less than two frappicinos from your favorite cafe! But all joking aside, I hope you check it out, and more importantly that you can connect with the poetry in a way that will be meaningful to you. ~God Bless~
