Basic Life Principles – Living How God Meant It To Be For You – Steve Martin Martin Lighthouse Publishing

Steve Martin, Martin Lighthouse Publishing
June 29, 2017
We all want to enjoy having the good things in life, and often do that which is good, or not so good, to achieve that goal. 

But what if we sought the One who created us, to find out what His thoughts are, what His ways were meant to be, and to actually walk in the chosen path He ordained for each one of us to go on? I personally think we might discover the best way to live, and find real purpose in discovering, and walking out, His perfect plan and purposes for you and I. 

These messages, from my regularly published Now Think On This, will help to encourage you to get on the path that He, the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, specifically created for you to walk on. Life has purpose. Life has meaning. If we look to the Creator, we will know what that is. 

Enjoy the read, while seeking the Living God in all His ways. You will surely be rewarded for it, now and forever, amen.

Steve and Laurie Martin
Steve Martin served with three Christian ministries from 1987-2010, all having a national and international outreach focus. During that time he made 14 ministry trips to Israel, China, India, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United Kingdom.

On his overseas journeys, Steve enjoyed sharing written journal entries with family and friends back home, through Internet media. His light-hearted stories gave an up close and personal touch for those reading along. Many could imagine being there themselves.

His extensive collection of photos taken during these trips, of both local scenery and common people on the streets, has touched thousands through their varied images.

In 2010, Steve and Laurie began Love For His People, Inc, a 501©3 non-profit humanitarian aid ministry. This work touches the natural and spiritual lives of those around them with needed encouragement and strength.

His regular messages Now Think On This are posted on the ministries Love For His People and Now Think of This blogs. They are also on Facebook and Twitter, featuring words of spiritual enrichment, along with selected photos.

Since 1994, Steve and his good wife Laurie have lived in the Charlotte, NC area, after having homes in Illinois, Michigan and Florida. Now married for more than 39 years, they enjoy their four adult children and spouses (Josh and Chelsie, Ben, Hannah and Jonathan, Christen and Andrew), along with our seven additional grandchildren – Daniel, Logan, Dylan Joy, Jensen, Payton, Jack and Levi Zachary.

While continuing to serve organizations with his accounting skills, he enjoys writing, photography and growing the ministry of Love For His People, Inc.
