God Still Leads and Guides

God Still Leads and Guides, sequel to God Still Meets Needs

Mark Littleton is beginning the process of doing a follow-up book to “God Still Meets Needs.” It will be called, “God Still Leads and Guides.” All the stories/readings/devos will be about how God led or guided you (or the person you’re writing about) in an uncertain or needful time. Enclosed is one reading by Mark that may help you in working on this.

First, this book will have a Table of Contents and a list of bios on all the writers at the end.

Second, there will only be fifty writers in the book. Each writer will have 2-4 readings in the book. This is to make it a little more exposure for each writer. Please get your readings in quickly. Put them all together in a Word .doc, or .docx, do not send them individually. Follow the format below. Mark will be compiling this book over the next few months. First come, first look and consider. Do not send more than 5-6 devos altogether. If you only have one reading, that's okay. Then others will be able to have more.

Third, include your bio and contact information on each reading, at the bottom of each one (not at the end of all of them).

Format:
           
Single-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point type.
            
Title is centered and all letters capitalized.
            
Scripture quote is indented same as the rest. No quotation marks.
           
Title. Line space. Scripture. Line space. Reading.
            
Each new paragraph must have a .5” indent.
           
Put the scripture address (all spelled out) at the END of the verse in this way: (Verse-comma-version(NLT, etc.)). I.e. (Romans 8:28, NIV).
           
The reading must be about an experience(not just a teaching). Show don’t tell.
            
The whole entry must be from 275-325 words. No exceptions.
           
Put “Application” after the reading at end, indented one tab, one line space after reading.
           
Put your name at the end, with five indents before it. No line space after application.
           
If you do not follow these guidelines, your submission will be immediately rejected. 

Fifth, Mark cannot pay for these devos. However, you will be able to buy copies of the book same as last time for your own use, for selling yourself, or for gifts.

Sixth, you don’t have to buy any books as part of this plan. However, it is to your advantage to get some and give them away or sell them just to create a little buzz on the book.

Sample Devo:

GOD LEADS IN EVANGELISM

The LORD appeared to him from afar, saying, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness." (Jeremiah 31:3, NASB).

            Mike F. was a guy I wanted to reach for Christ. He had been in prison, a street tough, a drug-user, a drunk. I often wondered why God linked me up with him.

            We talked about Jesus for over a year. Mike'd listen, argue, stonewall. I didn't think he'd ever convert.

            Then one day he told me, "I did it. I accepted Jesus."

            I was amazed. We became fast friends. He worried, though, that God was still angry with him for all those past years of sin. I told him all was forgiven. God loved him as he was. We talked about it many times, but he just couldn't believe it was true.

            One day while playing with his two-year old son, Jason, God suddenly filled Mike with that warm fatherly affection and pride that all fathers have toward their children. Mike whisked Jason up, kissed him and told him how much he loved him.

            Then it happened. Mike told me, "It was like God spoke right there in my heart. He said, 'You know how you feel about Jason, Mike? That's how I feel about you.'"

            Mike stared at me, his cheek trembling. "I broke up right there," he said, his voice tender. "God really does love me. In spite of everything! And now it'll never end."

            Some might ask, "Does God really answer prayers like that?" Just look at the Bible, Jesus, the world, yourself, your loved ones, and so much more. Is any of that convincing?

 Application: When you need God’s guidance, expect him to answer no matter what.
