More stories of redemption
“Thank you Michael! I prayed that prayer with you in your video... I first thanked God for guiding you through your trials thus allowing an amazing story to be told. Your story is having an effect on my life right now. I too experienced trauma in my life. Yesterday as I left work I really wanted to say goodbye to this world and had the same anger you felt with God. My entire life I have leaned on God but began questioning his love. I actually chose to stop praying. I can not tell you what prompted me to “google” losing everything. I watched your videos yesterday and prayed to God last night. This morning I woke up, went to work and shared your story with a good friend of mine who will be viewing your story this evening. Every single thing you said in your videos, every single bible reference made me feel like...God is talking to me and this message is for me. I thank God for coordinating this in your life as it has reached me...I want to thank you as well and make you aware of its effect. I hope to remain in touch... Thank you”

Hello Michael! Yesterday, a friend of mine sent me the link to your testimony. I was amazed at the phenomenal struggles you've overcome with God's awesome grace/mercy. I appreciated it SO much because our upbringings are very similar - my childhood was very hard AND I'm born/raised just twenty minutes south of Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach. I grew up in the Melbourne/Indialantic/Indian Harbor Beach area. You and I may have even surfed some of the same breaks? ha-ha. I too came from a very dysfunctional home and I too have spent my adult life trying to attain "success" in sales. I was very successful, but like you, in the past three years I have gone through a divorce (though not as harsh as yours) and have lost my career - starting over again in a new sales job. I meet weekly with a friend for Bible study whom I have shared how "tired" I have been with life..work, loneliness, stress, finances and the feelings of "failure". He sent me your testimony as an encouragement and I just wanted to thank you.You've encouraged me to keep going until God's leads me out of this "wilderness". God bless you man~

Hi Michael, I too have been rocked by a divorce I never expected. I've been in women's ministry for nearly 14 years and I can assure you this does not remotely resemble what I thought would be a part of my story. My husband has chosen a new life, walking away from his family, choosing a new family. When I discovered that my husband had a girlfriend, I finally felt released by God. It's the most painful journey of my adult life, but I KNOW that I KNOW that His hand is at work already redeeming and restoring. Now ... as I watch your video, I'm in awe of two things: 1) How God has restored & redeemed your incredibly painful journey; 2) the truth of your words. Not all that popular in the Christian world today. Even in our churches. You are 100% correct in your interpretation of the Scripture you spoke about. I'm praying for you, Michael. For God's supernatural favor to continuously be poured out over your life and your ministry.

I just finished watching your video with a friend regarding your spiritual journey. The two of us were quite blown away. I look forward to meeting with you to seek some spiritual advice. I find it amazing that the Lord has led you to me in such a time of grief! Thank you for coming up to me and giving me that card with your story on it!
