When Robert Dunkle received an opportunity to preach God’s Word to the people of India via short-wave radio, he jumped at the chance. The messages he delivered were translated into two of India’s main languages and recorded by an Indian pastor to be aired in 15-minute radio spots for each language once a week. Ninety and Nine Plus One is a compilation of these uplifting spiritual messages broadcast on Indian radio in order to spread God’s word throughout the world! All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (II Timothy 3:16 KJV)

“Walking through life’s storms with confidence in God…” No one ever promised that life would be plain and simple. Psalm 30:5 states: “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” We can often encounter some devastating life challenges such as anxieties, debilitating and critical illnesses, broken relationships, deaths of loved ones and financial losses, to just name a few; but there is hope in what can appear to be extremely dark and dismal situations that we face; we can walk through life’s storms with confidence in our great and mighty God. Joy Cometh in the Morning is a compilation of inspirational messages that will bring hope, peace and comfort in the midst of your storms. Confidence, trust and deliverance in God will come through as you read each message. Always remember that we walk by faith and not by sight. God is able; he is the absolute authority in all the circumstances in your life . . . no matter the storm . . . trust in God.

Book description…

This book is a smorgasbord of thought-provoking and inspirational tidbits inviting the reader to deeply focus on the good and to reflect it back through daily deeds. It looks at life as a lyrical composition played out in our daily lives through our thoughts, poetry, songs and actions. It is a compilation of who we are, living in a fast-paced world in which our thoughts are not often absorbed, shown or appreciated. This book gives a brief view of what seemingly goes unnoticed, but is in the background of every great human endeavor. It takes you simply to the point with rhythmic, poetic and philosophical narratives. The descriptive view in words is not instructional, but rather inspirational and motivational. No matter the background or culture of the reader, all who read it will find something to hold on to.
