U Turn, God Turns

"U Turn, God Turns" by Michael Vincent Robinson

Just before dawn, the stench of mangled metal sweltered and stifled into the air from beneath the bridge. The disastrous car crash finds the bloody and traumatized Michael Vincent Robinson’s life expiring in his labored breathing, but God rescues him from death. Being saved for purpose and destiny was not enough for him to exit the covert boulevard life that held him captive. With deliverance seemingly impossible, he retreats deeper into the illusive boulevard and into the wilds of his own mind. Desiring to change, the author’s faith and belief in God never waivers, and God changes his desires and saves him before passing the point of no return. This compelling, life-changing memoir, executed with friendliness and bold wisdom, equips readers with all they need to embark on a new life showered by God’s gifts.

Reviews: The author's candid and transparent reflections are inspiring and thought-provoking! This book is an excellent read! - Latrice C. Hankins I felt like a tourist on the journey of Mike's life as it unfolded with its many twists and turns. Mike's use of the street sign metaphor was genius and an artful way of keeping me on the hook from chapter to chapter. What a story of faith, grace, and miracles! I'm grateful that Mike had the courage to be so transparent in delivering what has been a life-changing testimony! The men who struggle with any sexual weakness will find strength to overcome as they pour through the pages of Mike's story. Mike's story further proves what Jude said in chapter 1:24 of his letter, specifically that God is able "to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—". Thanks for sharing Mike! -Eugene Brown [divider height="30" style="default" line="default" themecolor="1"]

As their adventure began to unfold, not everything went according to plan. If finding their dream house was difficult, buying it seemed almost impossible. How would they cope with banks that didn’t want customers, builders who didn’t need work, or the complex issue of where to buy some chickens?
