Blossoming under Malawi’s bright sun, he learns to shoot sharp arrows like an African prince.
Come evening, the inky night echoes with shrill hyena cries and unseen, the leopard inches closer to its next kill. It’s wild… but he is happy, this boy is free. Occasionally Dad warns…“Just watch out for Black Mambas waiting for you in the long grass son… one bite and you’re dead!”
Then along the sighing reeds of Lilongwe’s muddy waterways, they often fish for Chambo, yet so quietly do they slip away that no one at home even knows the boys have sneaked away… making it still more exciting to be out in the bush.
(Dave Alston Snr, taking me fishing on Shire River1967).
So here in Africa, the destiny of this small life sparkled with unusual promise. And with boundless happiness, the boy dreamed of his exciting future when he would become a “Great Man” just like his hero… his Dad.
But then it went weird… really weird.
And years later, across the howling wastelands of his broken dreams, the once cheery lad’s heart became crushed quite senseless, so he even despaired of life itself.
Yes, he knew there was a God in heaven, yet getting Him to answer prayer consistently seemed so hit and miss. Sometimes his prayers worked—however most times the pathetic results they achieved hardly even seemed worth the effort.
Worst of all was when God went ‘silent’ and never even bothered to say a word in response to his desperate pleadings and cries to heal his by now broken heart.
Even crying out to his ‘Father in Heaven’ with bitter, stinging tears just brought silence, no matter how much he prayed.
In the end with all hope gone, he decided there was only one way out… (to be continued)...
(Thankfully, this sad story ends happy as you’ll see shortly. It has also given fresh hope and a brand new start with God to anyone who has ever wondered why their lives ended up going “really weird” too).
Now let me ask you…
Sadly we must part ways now...
Remember… you have just as much right as anyone on earth to live a life of freedom, joy, peace and provision, because you are made in the image of God.
Maybe now, it’s your turn to discover God’s true destiny for your life—or let Him into areas you’ve never been able to share before so you finally get healed?
Jesus said He will put His joy in you and it would never leave you.
I urge you to seek this joy and wholeness in your life, and you can because you can choose the life Jesus has intended for you all along—one filled with peace, freedom and blessing.
I wish God’s perfect best for you, in all you do.
PS Oh I nearly forgot! What happened to the little boy whose life started out with so much hope and promise… only to be crushed and dashed to pieces?
Well here he is… it was me!
Thankfully Jesus rescued me, and taught me how to live and I will be forever grateful to Him.
No words could ever express my debt and thanks to GOD for His mercy for what He has done in my life. His love is beyond description.
PPS If you want to know why you are here and how to overcome sin and live clean and happy with God, get “How To Unlock God’s BIG Plan For Your Life” because your own life is special and counts for eternity.
And remember every time you buy a copy you help us make discipleship training available online like our free Webinars and PDF perhaps for brave Pastors who share the Gospel in places like I visited in the photo on the left, in the mountains 70 miles near the border with Afghanistan.
In this area of Northern Pakistan it is dangerous to share Jesus, hence faces are blurred except for mine (what do you think of my moustache btw!).
What people say about the book (with typos!)...
Chris from New Zealand
“If you are looking for assurance that God really does love you, much more than you can imagine, and that He has great plans for your life, you will be mightily encouraged by this book. I almost read all 300 pages in one sitting!
Dave shares from his heart some of the gracious and miraculous ways that God has dealt with him during the past 26 years. There is a rare openness, vulnerability and honesty in this book, with Dave being willing to humble himself to share his weaknesses and sins.
This book is truly refreshing and unique among the multitude of other Christian literature.”
Ryan from Australia
“I am so enthralled and excited over your audiobook I'm listening to. I am still digging deep into Chapter 10… listened to it twice…
I have been one of “those” who so often feels ‘ruled’ by sin – I have often been tormented over not bearing good fruit...
I have been struggling with this for several years. I know you have a great call to do what you are doing and many will be changed dramatically.”
Phil from USA
“Hi Dave. I’m on page 296 of your book already and it’s only been four days!
I’ve been a Christian for six months, but your book covers things that nobody could help me with (and I was ashamed to tell people about actually).
I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to face up to what needs sorting in their life so they get real help to get free. Thanks Dave!”
Brian from UK
“‘How to unlock God’s big plan for your life’ is a very challenging and enlightening read for anyone… whether you’ve been a Christian for years, are a new believer or just curious to learn more about the Christian faith.
The book deals with real issues and speaks candidly about both the reality of God’s presence and power and also the truth about the supernatural constant spiritual battle each of us is engaged in (whether we know it or not).I would recommend it to anybody who needs training in the art of spiritual warfare or those who are searching for answers to life’s questions.
This book will leave you in no doubt about the reality of the kingdoms of darkness and light and the motives behind the two sides and will also teach you all you need to know about being on the winning side.
This book won’t simply educate you. It will prepare you and give you the weapons you need to overcome all obstacles in your own life and be in a right relationship with your heavenly father.
In short it does exactly what the title suggests. Now you have the key… use it!”
Ameela from Jamaica
“David the book is bad to the bone (Jamaican slang means it is good!) everything spoke to me. i listen to the audios everyday.
I never saw God for who he is until i listened to the book.
It is so profound and I am now using it as a guide line for my life.
When you spoke about dreams, marriage bwoy!!,
I am going back to listen, you wrote that when you meet upon persons who are really living for God hold on to them.
Please do not mind if I hold on to you, you blessed me tremendously.
Keep you posted.”
Rob from USA
I found chapter 9 (the audio book version) extremely compelling.
So much so, that I purchased the entire book in audio form. I have been listening over the past two days.
Unfortunately, we sometimes have to lose someone we love in order to develop the where withal to wake up and fight the Spiritual Battle that we are all involved in (as you say) whether we want to be or not.
Take Care and may God continue to richly bless you in all your endeavors.
