Dear Lighthouse Trails:
I have been following Lighthouse Trails since 2003, I believe, when you were still in Silverton Oregon so I should be more aware than I have found myself recently. I was struggling with some very ugly memories from my childhood, and my pastor’s wife asked if she could pray with me. In that process when we were through, she gave me a Jesus Calling book. At the moment, it was what I needed to get through the pain of what I was dealing with. I have read it faithfully every day. The Scriptures were always what I needed for that day. I have bought several to give away as gifts.
Until recently, I had no idea the books were New Age. I thought I was smarter than to be fooled by this! I just read where a new book [critiquing Jesus Calling] is coming out on you web site. It makes me almost sick that I was fooled so easily. I want to burn the books I have purchased for gifts but have never burned a book in my life. They are for sale everywhere, even the Christian book store I frequent weekly. I thank you for all your hard work in keeping people like me so informed and so appreciative that I finally found the truth. The Lord somehow got my attention.
It is so easy for Satan to slide in, and that’s what happened. As I sit hear writing this, the tears are flowing as to how many books I gave away. Fortunately, it was my family, and I can retrieve them and explain. God has been in control the whole time.
Please share my story so others won’t be fooled. I would never have believed I could be so easily.
