…whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. – James 4:14 (NKJV)
Allow me to explain my vision behind the fireworks you see on the cover and also to some of my personal signings from Untold Testimonies Told in which I dot the i’s with fireworks. In James 4:13–17 we are told not to boast about our tomorrow, but are to say, if the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that….
I’m a lover of fireworks! The Bigger the Better! Fireworks are beautiful and shine brighter in complete darkness. That’s why most cities will keep you waiting until complete darkness has arrived before they release their fireworks displays. Because our lives are compared to a vapor in James 4:14, I can’t help to think about Christians and our testimonies. We are only here for just a vapor of a moment, so how much more important is the need for us believers in Jesus Christ to share and tell our testimonies? Our personal testimonies of what God has done for us are like fireworks to me. Sharing our testimonies in this dark world gives much glory to our God and King. Our testimonies can also bring much light to the unbeliever. You see, we are here for just a moment, and we never know when our moment is over. It’s just like fireworks.
Have you ever stood waiting for a fireworks display and then hoped there were more once the display was over? So you stood there thinking, is this it? Is it over? In life and death, it’s clear when it is over, so we must share our testimonies with our family, friends, and neighbors. We must share them with this dark world while breath still fills our lungs because, in a moment, we may not be here any longer. ~Stacy C. Cope
Vision of the final chapter:
Chapter 8 The Great Commission
Many months ago, I was laying out all the chapters for this book that I felt led from God to write. I would pray and seek God over this final Chapter 8 and how I was supposed to finish this second book. I received nothing from the Lord. Then one day, as I was praying again over this last chapter, I felt God speak to me about it. He said to me, “Stacy, stop worrying yourself over the last chapter because it’s not yours to write!” Not mine to write, God? Who is going to write it then? He spoke to me and said:
“Use the last chapter as a commission and teaching tool for others to go share their testimonies of what I have done for them! Instruct them to write down their testimony in the allocated spaces and have them go back and name their chapter. Have them fill out a place they can write their name in as the author because many authors will write this book with you! Give them instructions that this is to help them share My Gospel and their testimonies."
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." (Revelation 12:11, NKJV)
