Davis Bunn Writes a Stunning New Novel

Davis Bunn has done it again. He has plowed new ground in his latest novel, The Turning, an April 1, 2014, release by River North Fiction. Where others have written books of theology on the Lordship of Jesus – the scriptural basis, the aspects of, and rewards of it, Davis Bunn has demonstrated the operation of Lordship.

Five people from different locations in the US, with different family histories and different financial bases, have been directly moved upon by the Holy Spirit. With nothing in common other than their basic surrender to Jesus in salvation, these five people have heard from the Holy Spirit and now must choose the Lordship of Jesus over their own desires and understandings. Not knowing the reason or outcome of any action they are moved upon to make, they must choose to obey the Lord from a basis of faith alone. Through them, the Lord has begun a campaign to call America back to him. Unknown to them, at first, the devil has also mounted a powerful attempt for the hearts and souls of the younger generation.

The book is a novel – with a novel idea; and regardless of how the story plays out, it cannot help but pull on the hearts and consciences of true believers who take time to read it. Be prepared to question your own standing with the Lord in the matter of Lordship. Be prepared to hurt deeply with what you may see about yourself. And be prepared to renew your understanding about/and desire to be involved in true Lordship.

At the end of the book, you will find a rather interesting invitation that can greatly affect your future. Enjoy!

Onward to South Africa

We just keep plugging along toward South Africa. The one thing that has kept me sane in all of this is to remember that God called us to do this. And it is his responsibility to get us there, all we have to do is follow in His footsteps every day. "The steps of a good man/woman are ordered of the Lord..." The chorus to the song Footprints of Jesus says: "Footprints of Jesus that make the pathway glow. We will follow the steps of Jesus where'ere they go." That is what we are doing.

God sends people along who want to "partner" with us in this venture - either through prayer, one-time gifts, or monthly support. We are always amazed at the who, when and what of the encounters.

I always have to match myself to His yoke, because he says "My yoke is easy, and my burden is light." When my soul gets stirred because things don't seem to be happening right, or fast enough, or at all (stark impatience on my part), I have to remind myself that this is His quest first and foremost. When I relax, the yoke doesn't chafe anymore.

We have been able to attend a reunion with our first church after some 40 years, and see our grandchildren. And we are going to see Judy's dad, who turns 92 on Thursday. It is a busy time, a fun time, and we try to remember to laugh along the way.

If you don't know about our move to South Africa, please see my Victory Ground blog.

Until my next blog, remember to "look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith." We love you.
