One Man's Journey Into the Love of God

Afraid to Trust

Before Peter surrendered his life to God, his marriage was a ticking time bomb, only salvageable by divine intervention. His business was his idol, and he felt immense pressure to run others over with it. Peter was a walking ball of fear, which manifested itself as uncontrolled anger. But Christ changed all that, granting Peter the peace he had not realized was possible. Dedicating his life and his business to God didn’t take away all of Peter’s problems. Keeping his new restaurant, Peter D’s, running was incredibly challenging and was the source of some of his biggest business failures. But God used those failures to draw Peter to Himself and make Peter more like Him. Learning to trust God to lead him through it all has turned those difficulties into growth and blessing in Peter’s life.
