Do you have more books coming out soon?
As long as The Lord gives me strength, breath, and favor, I will always have another book coming out. I hope we’ll see some more in the Fall of 2012.
Thank you again for this interview, Joshua. Do you have any final words?
There are many reasons why you may be tempted to think negative thoughts about the world in which we live, what with the economy, the precarious global political situations, etc. But I would like to challenge you not to give in to gloom and doom, or complaining. For all of history, as a wise ancient king once said, “there is nothing new under the sun.” People have always had a choice: be a victim, or take responsibility for your life. I believe that no matter what the circumstance, no matter your belief, you always have a choice. And that choice will affect your thoughts, your words, your actions, your habits, your character, and ultimately your destiny.
I am so blessed that during my darkest days, my family and dear friends from church would not allow me to think or speak negativity into my life. They knew very well how anyone might think or speak that way, given my circumstances. But they also knew too well how doing so would directly affect my destiny. So they encouraged me to anchor my hope and future to the promises of God in His word (the Bible). I made that choice — more of a commitment — and that choice dictated my beliefs, thoughts and actions. I hope you’ll consider what your anchor is, and how certain you are of its ability to direct your future.
