Today’s Featured GuestPamela Werner enjoyed growing up surrounded by the cornfields of southern Michigan with her parents and two sisters. Her imagination was quite active from an early age, and she loved creative outlets such as singing, writing, and dreaming up unique ideas. Her family was very involved in Christian radio ministry, and in her high school years they were transferred to Tucson, Arizona. Over the course of the next 30 years, real life occurred. There was marriage, two amazing sons, her mother’s victorious battle with cancer, the devastating loss of her father to cancer, divorce, career changes….fear, insecurity, loneliness, struggles, victories, forgiveness, hope, healing….new love, and new life. She is grateful for those life experiences that shaped her into the person she is today, a joyful surrendered soul. The poetic words that flow from her heart are only written on paper because God is her inspiration.
From Pam…Freedom…it’s what we all long for; that weightless feeling of “sky’s the limit” and dropping into bed at the end of the day with a peaceful smile on our face as we drift off to sleep like a content baby. So how do we break free from the negative things in our lives that keep us in captivity? So often in life we feel trapped, immobilized and ineffective at overcoming that which is keeping us from experiencing a joyful, peaceful, and fulfilled life. Don’t lose hope! There is a formula for freedom that is available to anyone who desires it. FIND OUT MORE KNOW GOD: This is where the journey must start. We must not just know God as He is explained to us by others; we must get to know Him personally…one on one…in the specific way He wants each of us to get to know Him. The way we get to know God is by reading about Him in the Bible. Through the inspired Scriptures, He reveals to us His attributes and character. As we discipline ourselves to daily spend time in His Word, communicate with Him in prayer, and quiet ourselves before Him so that we can hear Him speak to us, we will come to know God personally. We can never know everything about God, we will continue to learn more about Him and grow in our relationship with Him throughout the rest of our lives. God deeply desires for us to know Him.
