The world tells us that peace and happiness are found in wealth, status, success and possessions and like many people I was once like this. I strived to achieve success, wealth and possessions but despite working hard to gain all that I wanted I was still unhappy and I never found the peace and the contentment that I wanted.
In 2008 my life imploded and at the bottom of a dark black pit of despair and brokenness I found the Father Heart of God and learnt that He is not the tyrant God of religion but an awesomely gentle, loving and tender Daddy God who adores every one of His Children with a love that we cannot fathom.
As God became my Daddy and set me free from years of hurt and pain, with all the insecurity and unhappiness that came with it, I was to discover that the peace, security and happiness I craved were not found in the worldly pursuit of wealth, success and possessions but in being a precious, beautiful and very much-loved Child of God.
I was once the captain of my life's aeroplane and for years I flew in the wrong direction towards a destination I was never going to get to. It was only after my aeroplane crashed and my eyes were opened by God that I handed control over to Him and let Him be the Captain and I became the co-pilot.
In Flying in the Wrong Direction I share the story of my aeroplane crash and how God rescued me from the wreckage of it and took me on a life-changing, faith-changing and deeply healing flight in a new aeroplane where He is the Captain.
Is the course programmed into the computer of your life's aeroplane flying you in the wrong direction of the pursuit of wealth and status to try and achieve peace and happiness? Or are you flying in the right direction with God as your Captain and finding your contentment and your identity in Him as your Daddy?
If you are seeking peace and happiness but are finding that it is eluding you I hope that Flying in the Wrong Direction will encourage you to learn that there is another way and it is with God as your Daddy.
When you do this although you may have little in the way of money and possessions you truly become a billionaire!

About the Author
Thank you for visiting my Smashwords webpage. I don't write books but short bite sized texts that can be read in 30 minutes or less where I do nothing more than share my spiritual journey with God with other people. My writing is not academic or theological because I have a simple faith that is nothing more than a very loving and very intimate Father-Child relationship where God is my Daddy and I am His little boy. And that discovery of God as my Daddy brought me deep inner healing that changed me, my life and my faith from the inside out and set me free from crippling hurt and pain and mental and emotional illness that had been caused by a violent and abusive childhood. Our history is His-story so all I do in my writing is share what God has done for me in the hope that it will encourage others in their own journey and because God's love, His grace and His healing are free so are the pieces that I write. His blessings be upon you and His love, His peace and His healing flood your heart and your mind.
