Eternity in an Hour
This book covers a period of time when the author, Maxine J. Bersch, was so engrossed in study and prayer about the subject of “time” that she was unaware the major events taking place were God’s way of bringing about a second career for her! While she was asking Him about “time,” He was causing her storytelling to go from the local church and association to the state and national through the church library association. She thus discovered that God was answering her prayer and bringing her into the redemption of time in service to Him through her telling skills!
While Maxine was ignoring the passage of years, her hours and days were given over to telling stories and teaching the skills to the leaders at regional conference centers, and subsequently to nearly every state where Southern Baptists have work. Maxine celebrates her ninety-seventh birthday on January 23, 2016, and the years have flown as she expresses in this little book, while she has ignored them and lives one day at a time abiding in Christ and serving Him.
The stories are from her own experience and, while entertaining, they are the truth and show that God’s perfect will for her is pleasing and perfect! The aim of the book is to show the way to live life in contentment and happiness is to turn it all over to the Lord and allow Him to transform your life by renewing your mind, as Romans 12:1-3 spells it out. Only then will you be able to prove to the world that God’s will is good, pleasing and perfect!
