This is my story, a journey of the heart and mind. It's a journey from introspection and emotional turmoil to a life enjoyed before our loving heavenly Father. More than my story, it is instructive as well, a stream of my thoughts on different subjects that relate to our walk before God, one that I trust reflects the Father's heart and brings encouragement to the downtrodden, one that inspires His children to walk fully in all He has prepared in advance for us to walk in. I trust that through these pages many will be stirred in their passion for God and be set free to receive the love of our Father, to love and enjoy God and be enthralled by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to appreciate the wondrous work of His Spirit in our hearts, to run the great race set before each of us. Finally, one of the purposes of this book is to encourage believers from different tribes of the body of Christ to embrace one another and engage one another from a place of honor - heart and mind. This embrace of one another includes the acceptance of the different emphases each of us brings to the body. The embrace of mystery and the contentment with not having to fully comprehend the truths of Scripture, is key to us maturing and learning to hear one another and welcome each other's unique contribution. It is a place of security in our heavenly Father, free from the fear of error, where we will be truly free to listen to one another, and even be taught by one another, with His Spirit guiding us into all truth to a mature bride, to the full measure of the stature of Christ. Jonathan Gale in The Joy of Thinking with You gets it. He communicates with spirit, clarity and passion. Those who read this powerful witness carefully can have their own walk with God changed forever. I wouldn't be surprised if this book outlives us a hundred years. Robert G.
