See shares, “Don’t wait until you are on borrowed time. Access the transformational power of God today and change your life forevermore!

“The book, ‘On Borrowed Time,’ is a hard-hitting, tough-love approach that cuts to the chase and goes to the very spiritual hearts of our patients who are desperately searching to find peace in their later days of life. On Borrowed Time takes us behind the hospital room’s cubicle curtains for a seldom-seen look into the lives of those who are struggling to make sense of the lives that they have lived and the all too often brevity of time that life still holds.

“Many have lived a lifetime on their own terms, holding allegiance to the things of the world and having little to no time for God. Heartbreakingly, the day is often far spent when our patients are awakened to the news that they are terminally ill, leaving them with feelings of spiritual hopelessness. Yet it is here when all seems lost that God does his best work.

“With it all on the line, the reader of ‘On Borrowed Time’ can know, without a doubt, that hospital chaplains strive to operate in parallel with the divine works of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit’s work is complete, the patient can rejoice in knowing that God has not forgotten them and that he is still calling their name.

“Although ‘On Borrowed Time’ is based upon our patients’ real-life stories, the book’s overall message to us is to choose today whom we shall serve. While we are all prodigal sons and daughters and our heavenly Father rejoices in the day that we return to him, tomorrow is not promised to us, and it may never come.”
