“The Road We Travel – Challenges We Overcome as Believers in our Lord” – new book by Steve Martin

Kindle version – $1.99

March 19, 2020 Steve Martin, Love For His People ministry in Charlotte, NC USA


There have been many in the past that I grew up believing in, looking up to, and wanting to follow in their footsteps as a young kid growing up near the cornfields and hog farms of Iowa, in the Midwest section of America.

They were primarily historical figures – Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States; David Livingstone (1813-1873), the famous missionary to Africa, which Wikipedia writes, “…was a Scottish physician, Congregationalist, and pioneer Christian missionary with the London Missionary Society, an explorer in Africa, and one of the most popular British heroes of the late 19th-century Victorian era.”

Then, of course, the one made even more famous after the movie, “Chariots of Fire” (1981) of Eric Liddell, telling the fact-based story of two athletes in the 1924 Olympics: Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice.

I would also include Harriet Tubman, Mother Theresa, Saint Francis, and Saint Martin – all who lived godly lives for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ. To all these, I give thanks and dedicate this book. Above all, I give the most thanks and praise to my Lord Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, Who alone sits on the heavenly throne, enabling us to travel the road He sets before us, endowed with His grace, mercy, courage, and strength. Because of Him, we can make it to the end.

Stay on His road and travel on.

Challenging times? Of course! Didn’t our Lord Jesus say we would have “perilous times” in these last days? “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come…” 2 Timothy 3:1, NKJV

We are living in those times. Pandemics, tumultuous financial conditions, earthquakes, droughts…with fear proving faith is little to be found, even among professing Christians.

I encourage you with these 20 messages of hope, faith, and love. As you read, know that we will stand strong, because we are keeping our eyes on the One Who created us. Because He has been Faithful, is Faithful, and will continue to be Faithful, our faith in Him can stand strong against the tests of times. And there will be tests along the road.

Don’t be caught unexpected. Prepare your heart and spirit to know the truth, walk in faith, and be the light in this world that you and I have been called to be.

Steve Martin served with three Christian ministries (Derek Prince, Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda, Barry & Batya Segal) from 1987-2010, all having a national and international outreach focus. During that time, he made ministry trips to China, India, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United Kingdom. He has also made 22 trips to Israel.

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, Think About It. Again. and So What Do You Do? are posted on the ministry’s Love For His Peoplewebsiteand Now Think of This blog. 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 42 years as of Oct. 8, 2019, they enjoy having their four adult children and spouses (Josh and Chelsie, Ben, Hannah and Jonathan, Christen and Andrew), along with our eight grandchildren – Daniel, Logan, Dylan Joy, Jensen, Payton, Jack, Levi, and Samuel, close by in North Carolina.

Steve enjoys writing, photography and growing the ministry of Love For His People, Inc., to reach the nations with love, truth and hope in Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach.
