How this book came to life

Twenty three years ago, Mark was divorced and lost his family of a wife and his two sons.

 Believing the lie that he was a complete failure and fighting suicidal thoughts, one day the enemy of his soul told him the perfect lie, saying that he can’t even commit suicide right.

“I’ll show you” Mark  said.  Feeling loveless and unloved and hanging by one finger from  the crane in  the steel mill where he worked and seconds from letting go – God sent an Angel that stepped between him and death and said: “Enough.” God introduced Himself  to Mark that day and he has been with Him ever since.  That was Divine intervention. Worldly mercy is not equal to Godly mercy. The world and the enemy will yell “jump!” and watch your demise.  God will change you and give you  life.

         Why did God save a hopeless, sinning, Godless failure from ending his life?

Love- unending love.

He knew that twenty three years from that day, He would bring to life a book about His love, from Mark’s expressing his love for God through poetry and song, for saving his life and to share his  experiences with all of His people. A book that shares how God took a man with no will to live and turned him into an instrument of His love, for all to hear and to  be drawn near to Him.

Mark’s   hope is  that this book is living proof  that it was God’s intention for him to write it and for you to bear witness  and realize the power of His love that is also there for you, even if you think you don’t deserve it.

Enjoy the simplicity of the messages of God’s love in these writings and use the book as a devotional,  with all of the scripture references  added to each one. May God bless you with a new revelation of His love for you through Mark’s revelation of God’s love for him and his love for God.

What can I sacrifice?


“What can I sacrifice – when everything has been given to me?”
My greatest gain I count as loss – compared to Jesus on the cross.
Philippians 3:7 “However, what things were gain to me,
these have I counted loss for Christ.”
1 Timothy 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
Sacrifice your discontentment for Godliness.
I’m overwhelmed by the depth of His love.
He became a sacrifice for me. What can I sacrifice?

I’m Overwhelmed

I’m overwhelmed – by the depth of your love
and how much you give to me
I’m overwhelmed – by the price that you paid
and gave it to me for free

I’m so in awe of you – at times don’t know what to do
I’m overwhelmed – and I’m starting to see
that you’re overwhelmed with me

I’m overwhelmed – that your mercy endures
and your goodness is there for me

I’m overwhelmed – when my faithfulness fails
that your faith is still with me

I’m overwhelmed – You’re overwhelmed with me
So overwhelmed, that you’re a part of me
I’m overwhelmed – by the depth of your love
and how much you give to me
