A time long ago, on the planet of Boldlygo, a race was on the verge of extinction with little hope to find a way to stop it. The leader and his scientist tried taking DNA from other species on the planet to create a new life form. A new life they did create, yet it was not acceptable. The scientist told the leader, “A female we must have.” This statement brought many questions as to how or where. The only females on the planet were infertile. As they sat and pondered as to how they would come about such females, an idea occured. “Let’s build a ship,” said the scientist, “to carry us to other worlds in search of a female.”

I praise God for all that has happened to me because through all this, I have learned to know God in a real way. Like in the book of Job 42.5 (TLB), “[But now l say,) I had heard about you before, but now I have seen you, and I loathe myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
This book was written, to show how our God can get us out of any circumstances that we might put ourselves into. I have no explanation, why God in His awesome power has chosen to reveal Himself to me. All I know is that He fulfi lls His promises just as He says He will. Anyway, my struggle was just beginning.
Romans 8:28-29 (TLB) it says:
And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fi tting into His plans. For from the very beginning God decided that those who came to Him-and all along He knew who would-should become like His Son, so that His Son would be the First, with many brothers.
Has life beaten you down?
Are you tired of being tired?
Have you hit a dead end in your spiritual growth?
We live in a society that is longing for fulfi llment from all the wrong sources. However, we will never be truly satisfi ed apart from Christ. In Growing Pains, Shontel Stanford shares her story of how God took her from brokenness to wholeness and how He will do the same for you! Shontel opens up about her journey with Jesus and brings a candid understanding of what He requires of every believer—your all. She is hysterically funny and bluntly honest as she gives you practical principles on how to live your best life in Christ. Many Christians never experience God’s best for their lives because they are not willing to let go of the things that are destroying them. God wants His people to live a fruitful life, but in order to do that, fi rst there must be a cutting away of dead things. Are you ready for God’s best?
Before man walked the earth Dragons were the most powerful beings that lived. They had a civilisation that could put any to shame. Defence, education, magic and harmony, but, sometimes trouble came their way. They never caused it, but neither did they back down on what was right, and they defended their own and their friends fiercely. And so it was, the call for help came from the Merpeople, they had a longstanding friendship, and often met up in Sea Valley to pool information and share a bountiful meal. Since the battle of the Wolfcrabs was past and no one had been hurt, it had been a peaceful time for everyone.
