Living with Peace

This Was My Answer to Prayer!

The Way Ministry was an answer to prayer for me. As a nineteen-year-old in 1975, I had a lot of unanswered questions about God. I was searching for those answers in my church and even traveled to Europe with a group to learn more about God, but came home disappointed. After that trip, I was staying at my parents’ farm for the summer between college years. One day, in frustration, I got on my bicycle and rode out on the country roads, pouring my heart out to God.

“There has got to be some way to get to know You and understand the Bible. There are so many churches with so many ideas, but only one You with one way of thinking. How do I find out what that is?” Then I was quiet, and I heard, “I will teach you My Word like you’ve never heard before.” A few days later, a believer with The Way Ministry came into my summer workplace with his Bible, and we got into a conversation about God.

Less than a month later, I was sitting through the Foundational Class, hearing the Word taught like I’d never heard before. I was thrilled—this was my answer to prayer. God and His Word were finally making sense to me—the law of believing, who Jesus Christ really is, what happens when people die, keys to the Word’s interpretation, and so much more!

And even after all these years, my heart still thrills when the accuracy of the Word is taught. What a joy to live life having answers and the peace that those answers bring. And what a privilege to bring those same answers to others, so they, too, can live this awesome, abundant life.

God Is with Me

I have learned that I can walk in this world with total peace of mind and a secure confidence that God is with me in any and every situation. God and I make a majority, and with His wisdom and guidance there is nothing I may encounter where I will not be victorious in my efforts.
