Submitted Unto Perfection is a collection of writings penned over a number of years. The title was given to me by the Lord over thirty years ago. Before writing it I had to live it. This short book reflects some of my life lived submitted unto Him. I hope it stirs the hearts of those who love God, to draw to Him, in fuller trust and devotion.
