Book Review of The Threshold by Michael D. Rourke

I was intrigued by the cover of this book and was given the opportunity from BookLookBlogger to review the story.  Here are my excerpts...

Excerpt From: Michael D. Rourke. “The Threshold.” WestBowPress, 2013-11-14. iBooks.

“the Bible verse in Proverbs 3:5–6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He “shall direct thy paths.”

“My small writing room in the back corner where the diary started twenty years ago would now hold the new collection of memories. The additional diaries added to the old ones in the house totaled over two hundred notebooks.”

“Christmas tree farm and cut our own six-foot Douglas fir and dragged it out. I enjoyed the quick changes the passing cloud cover made in lowering the air temperature, followed by the warm, steady sunshine after its passing.”

“A week later, Ma and I took the tree down as I preached to her”
“We were relatives in blood and in name, not in time spent or in experiences.”

“I sought people who placed God’s Bible first in their lives as direction on how to live.”

“John 14:27. “Jesus said, ‘Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’”

“church and pastor connection moving around played out. I still went to church, but it was different. Change is or is not comfortable, but it is always constant.”

“I could only give him what the Bible facts were; only God can change a heart.”

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1).”

“putting my growing worship for God and His saving grace in front of readers was my mandate.”

“I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is written in my heart” (Ps. 40:8).”
