Do you long for the excitement the early Christians experienced and want to produce lasting fruit for the Kingdom of God? Do you long for the power to live your faith joyfully and make God your top priority? Do you long to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit and sense a "call" on your life but feel inadequate? Do you long to have Christ's peace, even in the midst of turmoil, so you can impart peace to others? When you are busiest about the Lord's business, it is sometimes easy to forget that you cannot bear fruit unless you are rooted in the Vine. This new millennium, with back-to-back natural disasters and personal trials at every turn, demands that you trust Christ to empower you for service. As you read these pages, you will discover a new depth and fresh appreciation for God's work in your life, even in distressing times. Invite the Holy Spirit to meet you between the lines of Candy Abbott's spiritual journey, and you will find your relationship with your heavenly Father strengthened. Instead of asking "What can God do for me?" let your heart be filled to overflowing when the Holy Spirit prompts you to ask "What can I do for YOU, Lord?"
