A New Calling!

There comes a time in every one’s life when God changes their calling in life. After years of working in men’s ministry and working with men about their prayer life and the importance of praying in unity God has placed a new burden upon my heart. Part of it has come from watching my grandchildren growing up and the desire for them to fall in love with Jesus. What I found was I was completing with was this thing called X-box and Harry Potter. I cried out to our Abba is there any way You my Lord can use me to woe these children back to You. The gentle whisper I heard was, “Is there anything in this world more exciting than the truth that is writing in the Bible?” The conformation I found in Joel 1:3

Tell it to your children,

And let your children tell it

to their children,

and their children to the next

generation.

But how became the question I put before the Lord? How do I tell them the old story in a way that comes alive for them? How my Lord How? For five years I prayed use me show me how. I searched Christian Book stores for children books and found most books weak and not too much fun. There where books for younger children from birth to about 8 years of age and book for teens. But the 9 through 12 year olds seem to have been forgotten. One thing I noticed was that the world had not forgotten them the world was out to steal our children away. My heart was broken before the Lord for the children for I did not know how to reach the children. So I kept asking is there any way Lord You can use me?

About three years ago a story began to come to mind I knew how it was to end yet not much more. Again I heard the Lord whisper this time He said, “Just write.”

So with pen and paper I sit down and started to write a little story I could start to tell my grandchildren. That was the birth of Donkey Tells little stories to help my grandchildren fall in love with Jesus.

One day someone gave me a broken down laptop computer that did not even have word and I started to write little devotionals for the men’s prayer group. The guys there said I needed to share what I was writing with more people and they got me to start a blog, and “Men of One Accord” was born.

My heart ache for the children never went away and the prayer to reach them for Jesus became a hunger. One day again the whisper, “Just write.” Write what I ask? “Donkey Tells” was the answer. Abba I can’t spell, the computer does not even have spell check, I almost flunked out of high school, I am dyslexic, I don’t know how. There are so many others out there who know how to write but You have asked me, so I will write.

In about six months time the first rough manuscript was complete and the work of fixing it began. There is no need to go into all the work that was done but on Christmas Eve day I found out

“Donkey Tells”

“A Promise Kept”

Donkey Tells was released for sale to the world, the best price to buy the book is through Amazon  just go to the books and type in donkey tells by j thomas. I have about four more books to write that will walk you through the life of this little donkey. Oh by the way I know how the last book ends all I have to do is fill in the rest. I only have one review to show you about the book for now. If any of you out there have read the book would please add your comments? Thank-you!

Donkey Tells is a delightful, fresh new look at several very familiar and much-loved accounts from the Bible. J Thomas writes for the 9-11 years old, but reaches the heart of any age, for he tells his tale from a different and unusual perspective. Donkey Tells is a story of Micah, the littlest of donkeys who loves to romp and play. His favorite sport is to tease humans and play his donkey games. But Micah soon finds that, although life can be fun and play, there is serious work to be done, for Jesus has chosen him for the most special task of all. As Micah’s mother lovingly recounts to him the honorable and heroic history of his ancestors, Micah’s calling becomes clear, but will he has the courage to answer the call? Can he conquer his fears or will they conquer him? Find the answers to these questions and fill a child’s heart with new wonder, or find the child inside of you and read the story again, for the first time!
Donkey Tells is more than entertainment, it teaches many important Biblical truths, such as salvation, faithfulness, courage and trust. A special book for your favorite kid

The Storm

Out to sea this vessel set sail

Winds soon turned to gale

Battering waves besieged

 Vessel’s hull bucked

Sea spilled in

 The vessel stalled

Making no way against the wind

At all.

Till the Master spoke:

Peace My child

Be still.

This vessel is going to

The other side.

Into the eye of the storm

This vessel did sail.

Winds claimed

As waves retreated

Pumps engaged

Oceans’ water returned

To the sea

Hands hasten

Hatches re-fortified

Planks re-fasten

Heart beats slowed

Deep breaths taken,

As the Master spoke:

Peace my child

Be still.

This vessel is going to

The other side.

Out of the eye of the storm

This vessel did sail.

Cyclone determined

To make its final rail

Winds growled

The tempest hailed.

Timbers strained

Ribbing twisted

Planking cracked

Seams leaked

The vessel was surely lost.

Till the Master spoke:

Peace My child

Be still.

This vessel has reached

The other side.

Again I have been inspired by another blogger!
