Memphis, TN – Fall , 2013 – Innovo Publishing, LLC released a new Christian title, The Tommie Scott Story, written by Tommie Scott. With Jesus, there is always hope, no matter how bad things are. The Tommie Scott Story is a true story—a true love story—but not of the usual variety.

This is a story of a gangbanger, drug dealer, and “hit man” who worked his way through the juvenile reform system and into a California state prison by age twenty. It’s the story of an angry young criminal with no remorse and no hope. And it’s here—in the depths of hopeless darkness—that this story begins again. It begins again with a humble, gray-haired man who was not ashamed to be a servant and to share the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. It begins again with a new birth—a spiritual rebirth into God’s family through Jesus Christ. And it continues today with a repentant and joyful servant—a dedicated soldier for Christ—whose true story affirms God’s Word that says, “… neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38, NIV).

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10, NIV).

God Is Love

On A Day In The Knowledge from Above

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16

I wasn't planning to start with this verse or even mention it in this post but of course, God is unpredictable (in a good way), "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD." -Isaiah 55:8 (It's amazing how many times this verse comes to mind). But I guess it ties into what I want to say.

Recently, as I mentioned before, I've been going through or at least was, going through a really rough time and my faith was affected, leading me to deviate in certain aspects. Anyway, as I was on my way back from a trip last week, it was like, eleven at night or something, a thought came to me. We could deviate so much, but if we repent, God is ALWAYS going to welcome us. Never is he going to turn us down. His love is so strong for us that He will welcome us always, just like the band Jesus Culture says, "Nothing can separate/ Even if I ran away/ Your love never fails". To further support this, "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." -Romans 8:38-39. Nothing. He will welcome us just like the father in the parable of the lost son, "But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” -Luke 15:32

I had this written on my phone when I was coming but now I know why God hadn't permitted me to copy and paste.
