I just now finished Jackie Pullinger's "Chasing the Dragon." What grace it was that brought me across this great book.
It reminds me of the often repeated encouragement I've heard from a few particular sources, "Read good biographies." Overflowing after such a wonderful read, I now concur with the need to encourage others to read good biographies.
I was impacted by the singleness of focus upon Jesus, from which came the ability to love and serve in faithful, patient, and fruit yielding obedience.
Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.
There are those who slay dragons and there are those who hide from them.
