A Testimony: Tough as Nails

I mentioned I have received several reports from people who have been helped by reading “Heaven on Earth.” Here is one I heard about just yesterday:

Elle is highly skilled architect and one of the few women in a field dominated by men. Her immediate boss is a woman with a type-A personality who has advanced into an executive position- a real rarity. She is tough as nails. Elle was presenting a report to the corporate big wigs, when Miss “Nails” cut her off in midstream and accused her in front of everyone for doing a poor job. It brought the presentation to an abrupt halt! 

Elle was devastated. She was ready to hand in her resignation the next day. That night as she read the “Heaven on Earth: Experiencing the Kingdom of God in the Here and Now,” she was emotionally overcome when she realized, “Jesus is my King. He is in charge of my universe, and not Miss Nails!” She knelt by her bed and prayed, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

The next morning at work, Nails summoned Elle to her office. Suspecting the worst, Elle didn’t want to face her boss or receive another tongue lashing. A colleague literally had to push her toward the office door. When Elle entered, Nails stood up immediately with outstretched arms and wholeheartedly asked for forgiveness. She was transformed overnight! As they hugged and were reconciled, Elle whispered to herself, “Jesus, you really are King. You have everything under control.”
