For me Partnering With God represents a different way of thinking and an approach I commit to taking in my life.  Although I first explored this idea in my first book, “Success is Within You”, I feel an urgency to adopt this in my life especially now.  By profession I am a scientist.  I love science because it reveals to us without bias how the universe works.  Science quenches my curiosity about the big picture of the cosmos but it does not always address the day to day problem solving that is needed for daily life.

Years ago when I attended the university someone shared with me a poem called “Footprints in the Sand” by Margaret Fishback Powers.  It describes how God is always with us but when we are in our darkest moments or difficult times in our lives, this is when God carries us.  Many years later when I had a goal of being a published author, I revisited this idea and called it partnering with God.  I began to ask myself what would partnering with God look like.  When I thought about it deeply I became emotional because this would mean the greatest life in the universe would be walking with me and the rest of humanity all the time.  God, creator of the universe, is always there and always with me.

It does not matter who you are, what you do or what labels society pins on you, you are first and foremost a human being and in this way we are all the same.  God is available to anyone and everyone.  You can have God as your partner easily by choosing this for your life.  When you consciously choose God as your partner things will change for you for the better.  You will find your life moving toward what is best for you.  Embrace your passion in life and do what you do.  However, doing this with God as your partner makes you better at anything.  Singer, actor, musician, teacher, athlete or student, whatever you do, you can become a better version of yourself.  Partnering with God moves you to the BEST of what is possible for your life.

Partnering With God is the collaborative effort of many talented individuals across thousands of miles.  I want to express my sincere gratitude to them and to God for their contribution to this project.
