About the Book

One day I was preparing a message that I would minister at a men’s fellowship meeting. I was studying on how to hear from God. Three of the ways he speaks to us are in dreams, in visions, and in pictures. At one particular point while in meditation, I imagined a picture of the Lord standing over a pool of water. The sun shone tremulously against his back, casting his silhouette upon the water. I assumed by his posture, that he was looking at his reflection on the water. Little did I realize, in that one still moment, the Lord saw his grandeur and splendor everywhere at the same time and for all times to come. In a poetic format, I’ve attempted to capture what he saw, and it gives me great pleasure to share it with you.
