God's Mail Volume 3 is a book of poems are written by Ronald Hardin. Even though his grandparents and parents were God fearing folk Ronald himself got into a life of crime, drugs, and gangs. After many near misses Ronald rededicated his life to the Lord and started his own ministry in using his poems to comfort and encourage other believers in his late twenties. Ronald is a father and grandfather now and he has come from a very far way to be serving the Lord.
Members of the Homeschool Review Crew received copies of God's Mail to read and review. God's Mail is available as a paperback and digital edition. We received the digital Kindle version of the book.
God's Mail Volume 3 is a book of poems that Ronald says God led him to write. This one, Volume 3, is the third in the series. They are poems regarding situations that Ronald found himself in as well.
What's in God's Mail
The start of God's Mail Volume 3 are several endorsements by pastors, friends, authors and more who have been blessed through Ronald's ministry.
I really like God's Mail because it's like that daily devotion you need. How often have you looked for a good devotional that has helped you through a trying time. Ronald has had trying times and each poem is accompanied by several scriptures.
There are about one hundred and seven or eight poems in this volume. Every time I counted I lost track but it's around there.
The titles are things like What am I doing? and That's It.
I really liked Why Lord? and the accompanying scriptures. I go to a large church and when you have such a large congregation there is sure to be more suffering just because of the numbers (more people etc.). And yes sometimes when a sweet person has to go through something very hard I ask, “Why Lord?” Although some things we will never know until we meet Jesus the poem, which is much like a prayer, and the accompanying scriptures do offer, me at least, a measure of comfort that the Lord is not unaware of the pain and struggle.
Why I wanted to Read God's Mail
Honestly I thought this concept sounded like a great way to start the day in the Lord. I've tried many devotionals and, not that they're bad, but they only last so long and then it's time for the next one.
I really like that Ronald follows each poem with several, I mean several, scripture references.
One of my favorite poems is Go On and Ask. It's about sharing in the burden of the work of the Lord. That you don't have to do it all by yourself and that the body of Christ does better work when they work together according to gifts God has given. One scripture he didn't use for this poem is 1 Corinthians 12:12 (KJV) but I immediately thought of that scripture when reading it.
For as the body is one, and hath many members, all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12
My only issue with this work is that I felt Ronald was using so many different Bible versions. He uses the King James Version, Good news Translation, New International Version, New King James, and The Message. I would love it if he only stuck to one or two. But that is a personal preference.
Sharing God's Mail
Maybe you know a Christian friend who is going through something. I know at a very sad time in my life I would've loved to have received God's Mail.
For me sharing God's Mail is like sharing God's Love.
