Longwood, FL (PRWEB) December 31, 2009
Many of God's people are hurting, and some are blocked from expressing their pain outwardly. In A Message from the Poetic Messenger ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-524-6), author Brenda S. Rogers encourages readers with the knowledge that they are not alone--God is there to help guide them along, and by simply waiting on Him and His timing, He will make them strong and give them courage. The need for this timely message is ever-apparent in today's world, where a variety of issues are causing many of God's children to sin and turn their backs on Him. Its message will resonate with readers who will be raised up by hearing what God has done for Rogers--and what He will do for them, too.
"I hope that readers will gain compassion from reading my book," the author says. "I want to touch people who think their sins are so immoral that they would rather keep doing the sins than hope that they can be changed. 'Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth'" (Luke 15:10).
Ms. Rogers, a poet and songwriter, had no thought of ever becoming a writer until one rainy evening when she sat alone in the lunchroom, isolated from her co-workers, feeling lonely and helpless. She asked God, "What am I going to do?" God commanded her to write a song--and the rest was history. She got pen and paper and that night was inspired to write her first song, "No Skin." The publication of her first book, A Message from the Poetic Messenger, marks the fulfillment of yet another life-long dream. And, says Rogers, she hopes to keep on writing in the future, touching others with her universal, faith-affirming messages.
