To God be The Glory! -- New Book is an Inspirational Anthology That Pays Tribute to the Father in Heaven

BALTIMORE, Jan. 18, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Often times, when people go through struggles, they forget to count their blessings. If they did, they would know that they are still blessed despite their circumstances and that God will never allow more on them than He knows they can bear. Author omblivnju1027 reminds people of this and pays tribute to the Father in Heaven through TGbTG: To God be The Glory.

This wonderful book of works was inspired by a poem of the same name. In this anthology, the author reveals what a truly glorious moment it is to witness Yahweh/God in all His glory. She gives free reign to her innermost thoughts when she is being used as an instrument by God. Her poetic works flow with rhythm and rhyme, yet are filled with profound insights that will touch a chord in any reader.

Covering a wide range of topics, the central theme of this collection is to give thanks and praise to the Lord for all the blessings He has given each one. TGbTG is a testament of the author’s faith as much as it is a treasure box of wisdom. The title itself sums it up, and the author herself affirms it, “To God be The Glory.”
