By GOD'S grace, Daniel has been free from drugs and alcohol for 37 years; life has not been easy, providing a truly inspiring testimony. His love for the Lord and Christian values are evident in all of his writings. Danny humbly shares his experiences and way of life as a channel to reach others for the Lord.
Recently I was blessed to take an airplane ride, and the LORD spoke to me.
He reminded me that 90 percent of a plane's fuel is used for takeoff to get that big plane and passengers off the ground. Several miles up in the air, if the pilot encounters any bad weather or turbulence, high winds, etc., he takes the plane higher until he breaks through where the air is clear and the sun is shining!
The LORD said that is what we as Christians should do when we encounter turbulence, Coronavirus, racial strife, global pandemic, etc. Just go higher up in the SPIRIT until we are above the turbulence where the air is clear, and the SON is shining!
GOD richly bless you,
For all those at Trusting in JESUS who said a prayer for Brother Danny for Easter, I just had to write and say thank you! Easter was tremendous, and the wonderful thing about it was that there was no way in the natural that it was going to happen, but thanks to your prayers and GOD great Grace, it did! GOD richly bless you, brother Danny 4/5/21
Hi, my wonderful brothers and sisters at Trusting in JESUS!.
One of the things that have touched my heart the most in this walk with the LORD is every once in a while, he will bring back to memory something that had hurt me long ago, but I had forgotten and said it was not that big a deal, but the LORD remembered and brought me healing.
I said, LORD, you are the only one who knew, I did not tell anyone, but yes, it did hurt a lot, and thank you for remembering!
So that happened this morning. I was very concerned that being homeless, I was not getting enough of the WORD of GOD, churches closed, no street services, etc.!
This morning, the LORD said, think of a pastor, I did and, he says, "O.K. that's the Word of GOD right there. He has dedicated his life to GOD and followed me all these years.
That is the living WORD the same with all your brothers and sisters on the internet who pray for you year after year; that is the living WORD!"
So if no one has told you today they love you, let me be the first I love you, and thank you for being the living WORD of GOD in my life!
Richly bless you, Brother Danny 3/5/21
Hi, my wonderful brothers and sisters at Trusting in JESUS! Over the years, you have said many wonderful heart felt prayers for me, and I want to say thank you.
First of all, I am still alive and unharmed, so that's one answer to prayer right there!
Once, I shared a prayer request that I was so tired that I might say something wrong to someone and hurt their feelings! A sister in the LORD wrote back and said, "I totally know what you mean; in the morning, I say, "'LORD, please walk with me today put one arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth!"'
Praise the LORD, now, if I am tempted to say something even if I think I am right, I say, "nope, the LORD has his hand over my mouth, can't say it!"
I asked for prayer. I said I can't take it anymore. I want to quit; life is too hard! Soon a wonderful pastor wrote back and said, go ahead and quit; we will quit when the LORD quits, and that's never!
Can you believe that? How wonderful your prayers are. I did not really want to quit; I was just exhausted, so now I just rest knowing the LORD is fighting for me until I get my strength back! Remember, these are only a few highlights!
Yesterday I asked prayer for strength. I was exhausted! This morning, I was having breakfast in McDonald's, and in walked a young man I perceived was homeless because of the bags he was carrying, and I said to myself he looks like he is new to this!! So the LORD goes, how about yourself? What if tonight was your first night homeless?
I thought about it and said, Praise the LORD, I can forget about the last ten years of sorrow and pain and heartbreak because tonight is my first night, and that is why I was so tired of carrying the memories of the ten years around every day!
So, in conclusion, I think you can see why I had to write and say thank you for praying, and thank you for being my friend; these answers to prayer keep me going and even happy!
GOD richly bless you.

Praise the LORD! Years ago, I was backslidden, and I would stay awake all night just walking. I was high on speed, and it was then that the LORD would start talking to me about life and GOD and things he knew were on my mind!
One morning, we came into a town, and there was a coffee shop open. I ordered a cup of coffee and turned to ask the LORD if he would like anything, and in the blink of an eye, he reminded me that the guy behind the counter could not see him and he might get nervous if he saw me talking to someone who wasn't there!
I guess the point is the bible says he sticketh closer than a brother, and we were that close! And you know what, he never talks to me in the King James, but he talks to me like I am talking to you.
There are those who have dedicated their lives to GOD and have followed the Bible the best they know how and are living HOLY lives how I admire and look up to you.
Thank you for blazing the trail for us and never giving an inch!
The Bible is the WORD of GOD; it is plain and simple, and we must not lower the standard, and you have not; for that, I want to thank you!
GOD richly bless you, brother Danny
Hi brother Samuel and all my wonderful brothers and sisters at Trusting in JESUS.
If I asked 100 Christians who was the greatest writer in the New Testament, 99 would say Paul, and then there is me! I would say it was Stephen!
You say, where did I get that! Because when Stephen was being stoned to death, his dying prayer was Father forgive them for this!
You know the LORD honored that prayer, and Saul standing there watching, saw the glory of GOD on Stephen's face and later became Paul! So in God's way of looking at things, Stephen, in a way, is just as responsible for all the books Paul wrote!
Now my point is this be encouraged today; lift your head high like Nehemiah; you are doing great work for the LORD; you never know how your acts of love and kindness have affected someone else! You may have witnessed to another Saul!
GOD richly bless you, Brother Danny, 2/13/21.
Hi, my wonderful brothers and sisters at Trusting in JESUS! Do you know someone who is very critical of you and even mean always talking about you? Maybe this will help.
I want you to picture in your mind's eye JESUS standing next to you while they are doing that, then JESUS kneels down and writes something in the sand when the person reads what the LORD wrote, they come running up to you crying and say, please forgive me I was totally wrong I am so sorry. You say, oh, it's Ok. GOD wants us to forgive each other!
I think it is not fair that people treat you unkindly, but the LORD could stop it in a second!
GOD richly bless you, Brother Danny 2/11/21

Hi, pastor Samuel and all my wonderful brothers and sisters!
I was in the library watching the movie of Samson! When it got to the point when his hair got cut off, the LORD spoke to me! The LORD said it was not his hair that gave him his strength; it was the WORD of GOD that was spoken over his hair!
When he lost that covering of the WORD is when he lost his strength, and what happened next, he lost his vision; when we lose the covering of the WORD, the next thing is we lose our spiritual vision, and when we lose that, we start to find fault with others and with GOD!
So that is why it is so important to stay in the WOD; if for no one else, this message is for me today!
GOD richly bless you, brother Danny 2/9/21
P.S. When Sampson returned to the WORD because of GOD'S love and compassion, his strength was restored, just like our strength is restored when we return to GOD.
A while back, the LORD asked me if I was going into business, who would I pick to be on my Board of Directors! He said through all time, who would I like! Well, obviously, the LORD is the chairman of the Board, and then I thought having King Solomon for wisdom and Joseph for perseverance Smith Wigglesworth for fire Dr. Graham, etc.!
And so now when I have to make a decision, I run it by the Board. Who would you pick? It gives you the confidence you do not have to decide alone!
Richly bless you, Brother Danny.
P.S. of course, you would be on my Board also.
