Contact With The Author

In a recent Bits and Pieces  post in this blog, I shared a new devotional book called The Heavens:  Intimate Moments With Your Majestic God written by Kevin Hartnett, NASA Deputy Science Operations Manager for the Hubble Space Telescope.  A few days after I wrote that piece, I was surprised to receive an email from Kevin.  While trolling through the internet, he had come upon my notice of his book and, since I had mentioned I was intrigued by the title, he wanted to share with me how the Lord had worked in his life to bring this book to publication.

I love how Hartnett ended his correspondence with me:  “Through intimate moments of revelation I pray that the Holy Spirit might refresh, strengthen and inspire the readers with a view of the Lord’s countless and majestic excellencies.”  He also included a sample of the book’s contents in PDF format. You can read my review of the book here.

As exciting and enjoyable as it was to hear from this author, how much more exciting it is to have contact with the author of life itself, with The One who breathed into Adam’s nostrils and made him the first living soul.  As beneficial and enlightening as it was to hear this author’s story of how he came to write this book, how much more beneficial it is to hear God’s voice on every page of His book and to understand the purpose for which He wrote it.

Perhaps the best explanation of what The Author intended for us with His Words is given in Deuteronomy 8:2-3 and then repeated by Jesus in Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”  His Word, like bread, is meant to both satisfy us and to give us life.  Those are The Author’s own words about His Book.

    Hello Luana,
    How uplifting it must have been to know that your blog is reaching so many people for the Lord. Kevin’s acknowledgment serves as affirmation that all work done for Gods glory has great reward, and the greatest reward is the love we receive through Him. I really enjoy your blog and look forward to reading the next post.

      Yes, that was certainly an affirmation from the Lord for me, and when I told him that, he and I really enjoyed praising the Lord together for how He opens His arms and pours out blessings upon us. I was delighted to know there is such a man of God in a place of influence like NASA.

    How good God is to allow us to share with others what inspires us. It is good to slow down and ponder His greatness and His reflection in Creation, from the heavens to His humble servants…man (well, only God is humble, patient, etc.) I appreciate your bloggings and fully enjoyed the Creation vs. Evolution talks, etc. that you recommended.
