Out of the Box and Into His Presence (Paperback)
Struggling to understand what God wants for you? Are you like Jonah and going in the opposite direction? Or perhaps you are like Moses and you don't think you are qualified to do something God asks of you. God has a Plan that hasn't changed since the beginning of time. His Plan includes His Promises which are for everyone. We can't earn anything God has for us, but through His Grace, we come to know of His Love. Through the pages of poetry and accompanying devotionals in this book, hear what God has for you. Don't let what you think limit what God has for you, and wants you to do for Him. Come out of the box. Come into His presence. Pastor Charles A. Kalkomey is by profession a Professional Engineer and a Registered Professional Land Surveyor in the State of Texas. A graduate of Texas A&M University, he is not someone most people would think would write poetry. Grounded in a denominational setting, he has spent the last thirty years teaching and preaching as opportunities and needs arose in churches and in prisons. Recently ordained, Charles continues to seek opportunities to share the Gospel message, and has traveled to Kenya with Revival Now Ministries. Charles and his wife Jean worship and teach at New Life Beginnings Church in Pattison, Texas. This book would not have been possible without the support and blessings from their church family. He will be the first to tell you that the poetry comes from the Holy Spirit, and not him. He is simply the vessel used by God to bring messages of encouragement, hope, and the love of God using the written word in verse. The poems come out of different settings, but are almost all the result of being in worship services where the Holy Spirit's presence was felt and inspired the text. May you be as blessed with this collection of writings as those were who first heard them at their creation.
