The Petros Journals- The Introduction

Greetings Everyone,
I realize it has been a while since I last posted an update about my upcoming book "The Petros Journals." My apologies, I have been working with an editor to make it the best little book we possibly can make. I get more and more excited every day about this one...

Here is the Introduction to the Book......

I, Peter, called “the rock,” write to you this account of my life — my memoirs. While my life has not been what I expected it to be from the beginning, I have lived. My experiences may not compare to yours, but they have indeed changed me. They have impacted the way I see the world. My experiences have made me who I am now as I write you in, what I assume, are my final days.
Many aspects of my story will bring you joyous thoughts, while other aspects will bring tears to your heart — as they have brought tears to mine. My life has been a great and wondrous experience, and I feel it is my duty, my calling, to share my experiences with you. I do not intend to preach, and I do not anticipate to teach, only to share some of what I have seen and experienced before I leave this world and enter another.
There are moments  I truly regret and look back on with shame, but there are still more moments that compel my spirit to stop and look on with amazement and awe. I have witnessed one heartache after another, but I have also experienced one miracle after another. I can’t even imagine writing all of this down in a way that you, as the reader of my memoirs, will understand or relate too. Yet I implore you, dear believer, to come, to join me on this unimaginable journey.
As we journey together through my life experiences, you will witness firsthand all that has brought me to where I am now. All I have seen I willingly share with those who might read my words, in the hope that our great God will speak to you fondly. It is my prayer that you will be encouraged to take what is shared to heart and respond accordingly to what He might show you. Your life, just as mine, has a purpose and the journey you have embarked on will reveal many things.
The revelations recorded here come from God and will bless you in endless ways. They will show you, as they did me, how truly beautiful you are and how much your gifts and talents can impact the world around you. We live in a dark time, and people need the Lord. Through you, they can see Him. Through you, they can witness His unwavering love. Our great God has promised many things, and as you read through my account of Jesus’s life, you will see the wonders of the love and joy you too can experience.

Though portions of my memoirs will break you, I pray you will see how God worked through them so you too can find the hope I found in Jesus, as Savior.

Blessings in Christ and Thanks again for visiting us at "The Gathering Room."
