ARE YOU AMERICA’S RAY OF HOPE?

Be America’s Ray of Hope 

 

I have great news for YOU.     YOU were created to be a Ray of Hope !  –  Matthew 5:14.                                                                 BUT, the question is : Are You really living as a Ray of Hope?  –  OR  – Are You America’s Ray of Hope ?                                                                                                       

Surrounded by daily disturbing news or constant new adversity, YOU may feel hopeless or helpless.   But, there  is hope – as it is easier to deal with YOUR adversity when YOU believe that God is still in control of  your life .      – Romans 8:31.

Sure, YOUR hardship or your enemies might look like they have the upper hand; but in the end they are the helpless and hopeless ones.    Because – We are more than conquerors in Christ!     God is for us and He gave us all things. Romans 8:32

Please be encouraged.  Decide to be America’s Ray of Hope!         I am encouraging YOU and speaking with YOU from my own experience.   If YOU have read my memoir – Saving My Assassin – https://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838    –     YOU know that under cruel religious persecution I had decided to be a Ray of Hope.  And God helped me.

In the end – and by the grace of God – I am victorious, alive; and dictator Ceausescu is dead.

Because as we submit to God under any circumstances, He molds us into heroes.  There is nothing about me.


It is all about God’s power in me, as He uses me daily as His tool.  And for His glory.      God is willing and ready to do the same in YOUR life as you let him use YOU as His tool.

This is the ONLY way –  YOU will be  America’s Ray of Hope.

I know YOU can!    After all – YOU encourage me daily!    I am grateful for YOUR encouragements and your support.   Yes, YOU can!

Trust God and be a Ray of Hope !    

The spiritual hopelessness or darkness… or fear of government, not God… or political correctness is covering America.  The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but Socialism or Communism didn’t.    Choose God’s Freedom.  Reject  Socialism’s bondage!     Fight agains the Socialism spreading in America today. 

Everyone needs to know the horrors of a society without God – Socialism – and the power of God in each one of US.   Take the time during this Summer break and talk with YOUR high school, college or graduate students back in YOUR home, life or YOUR hometown.  

So many academics in America today are trying to sugarcoat their collectivist policies or whitewash the crimes of Socialism or Communism from history.    They also work hard to brainwash students’ minds teaching them that Socialism or Communism is the solution for America. 

I am speaking and have spoke in many Universities – for example – Georgetown University, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and various Law Schools.         I am so happy and encouraged to report to YOU that many young people attending my speeches are fighting  NOW for freedom as they have learned for the first time about the reality of Socialism or Communism from me or from reading my memoir – Saving My Assassin – https://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838    

Or  listened to my memoir  – Saving My Assassin   –  the audiobook version – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073ZKNM5C  

Many students in High School, College and Universities all over America who have read my book or heard me speaking – are creating NOW their own class presentations from my book or writing a play my memoir for  events at High Schools, College or University or their specific groups.                           They surely are America’s Ray of Hope.                                  Please watch as Deborah C. wrote Saving My Assassin into a play for her High School event.    She is America’s Ray of Hope at her Public High School  – as she filmed it on YouTube –  this link: ‭https://youtu.be/omKFE4KO8iY 

Our young people are listening to the Truth and ready to fight harder for Freedom, too!    It is time for all of us to push back harder and tell the truth about Jesus and his true Freedom.  Be encouraged – Reject the spread of the Socialism ideology in America.    

BE AMERICA’S RAY OF HOPE

YOU ARE THE REASON   –   I wrote my memoir!   It humbles me to know that many lives are continually being changed by my memoir; or to know that many votes or political views are immediately transformed as people find out the entire truth about the Socialism and the cruelty of it.   

Remember – the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but the Socialism or Communism didn’t.

PLEASE – Take the time during this Summer break and talk with YOUR high school, college or graduate students in YOUR life back in YOUR home or YOUR hometown.     Please contact me if you need any help.

Be America’s Ray of Hope!

Who guides Your life?

Who guides your life?

Who shapes your desires or your plans for your life ?

Many readers of my memoir – Saving My Assassin – asked me to share who shapes my life or the secrets of hope, courage and victory in my life.

Surely!

Here are my top 4 secrets :

1) Always Listen to Your Guidance

Many of us have plans and dreams for our lives.                                               Some of us seek our own guidance but I’ve learned that there is a greater power outside of ourselves.
It’s that “gut feeling” or “voice” many people say we hear that no one else can see or hear.  To me is God in Jesus Christ.     I call that gut feeling God’s Holy Spirit and it DOES give us intuition on what to do with our lives. Psalm 119:105
It’s not always easy to follow God’s prompting.    But we know that God always has our best interest in mind, and we are wise to give heed to his voice.

Following God’s guidance in your life – you are never alone – and that not only brings you hope, courage and victory but also joy and fulfillment!
Trust in God’s plan for you.  Jeremiah 29:11

2) Go After Your Dreams

My motto in life is: “Dream Big!  Attempt great things!”
Where would you like to be 12 months from now with your relationships, business, and health?  If you want great accomplishments, write down your skills and the actions or behavior to go after those dreams.
Also, write down your daily actions, and the victories and/or failures.
Learn to see failures as special lessons, showing you how to do things differently!
Working hard under God’s guidance will lead you to victory!

God is on your side.   He wants to give you the desire of your heart and your plans to succeed. Psalm 20:4

3) Associate Yourself With  Inspiring “Giants”

Surround yourself with people who inspire you to be better, kinder, wiser, and more generous.
As the saying goes, “who are the 5 people you spend the most time with“?
If they are NOT people who inspire you to be all that God created you to be, you don’t have to drop them as friends –  but – it’s certainly a great gauge to go out and find people who WILL inspire you.
You will find not only great friends to share your journey but great partners and mentors to guid you too.
Often our plans fail for lock of counsels. Proverbs 15:22
Start by making a list of the people you admire and you can learn from. Call them and  ask for their help.

 Meanwhile, look for ways they can use your skills. Proverbs 16:3

4) Reward Yourself – Pay It Forward

Giving back to others is the best reward or blessing!  Acts 20:35
God wants the best for his children.  He wants to use us to accomplish that.
Be God’s helper!     Be prepared to share your talents and skills with others.    Look for friends in need, people new in business, or for a nonprofit.    Helping others out, mentoring others is a great way to improve your life and change the world!      The ripple effects of helping others with wanting nothing in return can transform our communities, country, and world!

God is good and he will bring what he began in you to completion. Philippians 1:6

Therefore :

Trust God’s guidance and his promises for your life.

God will bring hope, courage and victory in your life.

He will make your path straight, fruitful and successful. Proverbs 3:5-6.

 Love to hear from you.   Please leave a comment below and I’ll be sure to follow up with you.

Sincerely,

Virginia Prodan

Is America standing in front of the Red Sea ?

America at the Red Sea

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg started testifying this week before Congress about the social network’s possible data misuses and privacy violations.

His testimony lasted yesterday six minutes short of five hours and covered topics regarding what went wrong, improvements Facebook can make internally, and possible regulations that need to be implemented.   He testified today too.

And to our horror Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg presented as his defense or maybe just wanted to inform us, another tech giant’s misuse.

He focused on Apple CEO Tim Cook and the similarities between the iPhone and Facebook.    According to the photo of Zuckerberg’s notes, iPhone app users and Facebook users are both required to give permission for the entity to access some information.

He noted that there has been a multitude of stories about iPhone apps “misusing Apple data” but that we’ve never seen Apple notify its customers.

You ask yourself: “Is this actually going on in America?   Is America still free ?”

Watching this you feel personally under attack or losing your privacy and your freedom.

You almost sense that America and we – the American people – are cornered or under constant attack and ….

yes !   ……  you wonder if America is in front of the Red Sea !

You wonder if our freedom is gone!

From where does our help come?

Would we finally call on God ?

Or still expect the politicians to help?

Yes – we can encourage everyone to call on their Congressmen and Senators for help;

or to call on President to build a bridge for us to escape to freedom.


Or wait for the US Supreme Court  to make that decision after years of heavy litigations.

If we acknowledge or not – America is standing in front of the Red Sea !

God still wants to lead us to Freedom.

But, would we call on God ?

Would we say? :  ” With OUR God we Can and we Will.

From where does our help come?

 It is time for us and America to return to God ! –  Joel 2:13

With God in all those things we are more than conquerors. –  Romans 8:37

Would you be the one to lead people to God?

You can start leading people to God from your own home, work, city or your state .

Would you encourage others to call on God for America?

With God is always hope no matter our circumstances.

He promised to be with us, protect and give us victory. Isaiah 43:2

Christ is the only way to our freedom!

Do you believe that?

Are you going to act on faith and lead the way God provided for our Freedom?

Inspirational story – A Cautionary voice – for America

This is an inspirational story.  Buoyed—one might say propelled—by her faith, she moved mountains. She risked brutal interrogations and fears of “disappearance.” Throughout, she is guided by her Christian faith.

This is also a cautionary tale. We see in America the same hostility toward Christians that she experienced in communist Romania. In both countries, for example, she defended congregations against zoning ordinances designed to close their places of worship.

Honored and encouraged by this article.

Hope you are too.

Virginia Prodan writes Saving My Assassin: Faith in communist Romania

Virginia Prodan writes Saving My Assassin: Faith in communist Romania

COLORADO SPRINGS:  In Saving My Assassin Virginia Prodan writes an unforgettable book of her life growing up in communist Romania. The story is full of suspense. The reader could not be faulted for thinking it a very good work of dramatic fiction. But it’s not. It is the true story of how a diminutive young woman defied Nicolae Ceausescu, one of the world’s most brutal dictators.

Growing up in the Communist state of Romania

Ms. Virginia Prodan grew up during the communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu.  As a child, she writes, she had a love for truth and wanted to become a lawyer. Against the odds, she succeeded. The story of her childhood is itself an incredible story of  the struggle against adversity.

What is most compelling is that while realizing her dream of becoming an attorney, her life changed: she became a Christian.

As she writes in the dedication to her book,

The book describes her time in Romania practicing law. Those who grew up during the Cold War era know about the depravities of communism, secondhand. In reading Ms. Virginia Prodan’s book, we learn about how Romanians endured it, firsthand.

The author tells her story as it is happening. When she takes her entrance exams for law school, she doesn’t know whether she will pass or not, and neither do we. The reader is with her every step of the way.

So is God.

Walking with God

What comes through with unfailing clarity is Virginia Prodan’s complete reliance on God’s grace and protection.

While the state persecuted the church, Virginia defended it. The communists, confident in their power, were sloppy. They didn’t erase old laws. Christianity was not against the law despite Ceausescu’s desire for it to be banned. It was in this narrow space between the legal and Ceausescu‘s extra-legal decrees that Virginia fought with the legal system.

And won.  Again and again.

In the process, she became a thorn in Ceausescu’s side.

One retelling is when the dictator sent an assassin to kill her. Instead of succumbing to her fear, she gives witness to her killer;  she tells him the love God has, even for an assassin such as he.

Remarkably, the killer holsters his pistol and leaves. Living in her faith, Virginia Prodan lives to tell the tale.

The inspiration of faith

This is an inspirational story.  Buoyed—one might say propelled—by her faith, she moved mountains. She risked brutal interrogations and fears of “disappearance.” Throughout, she is guided by her Christian faith.

This is also a cautionary tale. We see in America the same hostility toward Christians that she experienced in communist Romania. In both countries, for example, she defended congregations against zoning ordinances designed to close their places of worship.

The book is a memoir of her time in Romania—but it is not the end of her story. Today, Ms. Virginia Prodan is still an attorney. She is an International Human Rights Attorney and an Allied Attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom.

We are blessed to have Virginia Prodan’s book.   More blessed is that we also have Virginia Prodan herself.

YOU ARE THE REASON !

YOU ARE THE REASON !

     YOU ARE THE REASON  –  I wrote my memoir  – Saving My Assassinhttps://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838 .     The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but the socialism or communism didn’t.

Time for us to stand up, speak up, and protect our freedom, free market, and our freedom of religion.

Thank you for coming to the 2nd Annual Local Authors’ Book Fair – Saturday, on July 29, 2017 at the Audelia Rd. BranchLibrary, in Dallas, TX

The book signing event was a success because of You.
Thank you to all of you;  to my new friends and new readers, and for all your support !

 

So grateful and honored by your participation.    Obliged by the special and joyful time I had speaking with all of you .

 

Honored to meet my new readers too.    Thanks for all  your support.

 

The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but communism didn’t.

Moreover, socialism is spreading in America today. 

Everyone needs to know the horrors of a society without God – Socialism; and the power of God in US.

So many academics in America today are trying to sugar coat their collectivist policies or whitewash the crimes of socialism or communism from history.    They also work hard to brainwash students’ mind teaching them that socialism or communism is the solution for America.


We shall push back harder and tell the truth about socialism and communism.    I am so happy to know that many young people are encouraged and ready to fight harder for freedom as they are learning for the first time about the reality of socialism and communism from my memoir – Saving My Assassin – https://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838  

YOU ARE THE REASON   –    I wrote my memoir!         It humbles me to know that many lives are continually changed by my memoir. 

Or to know that many votes or political views are immediately transformed as people find out the entire truth about socialism 

and the cruelty of socialism.  

 

We shall pledge to stand up, speak up, and protect what we have in America – freedom and free market.

 

 

 

The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but the socialism or communism didn’t.

Time for us to protect our freedom, free market, and our freedom of religion.  

The best way to fight and win against socialism is to be educated about it.    And to be knowledgable about its lies, tricks, and atrocities.  

I encourage you to read my memoir – Saving My Assassinhttps://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838   –   that will open your eyes to the atrocities of socialism and communism.    Please share it with others too. 

You can listen now to my memoir  – Saving My Assassin   –  pre-order for  Free with your Audible trial  –  the audiobook version – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073ZKNM5C  

YOU ARE THE REASON –  I wrote my memoir  –  Saving My Assassin.  

Protect your life, your freedom, and your future from socialism.  Socialism offers nothing but lock of freedom, including no freedom of religion, and surely a total government control over its people.

Freedom is precious.” Virginia Prodan

I am passionate about sharing my fight and victories against socialism and communism with your group or team.      I am honored to help you fight and win against socialism.

Do you want to live a courageous life?

Our world is full of violence and for many is a desperate world.

But, you want to live a Courageous Life.    Let us  help you bring it to fruition.

We all have noticed that in our world, Hope and Courage are hard to find.

Life for many people people makes no sense.   Life purpose is constantly changing for them even to the point of no purpose at all.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is a “Silent Epidemic” called youth suicide sweeping America:

◦ Each day over 5,240 attempts by young people grades 7-12.

◦ The SECOND leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18 – is suicide.

◦ More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects,stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.

◦ Four out of Five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs

Many young people have no hope for their future.
Many see their own future as: “However Bad You Think It Is, It’s Worse.” or they see life as “One hard problem behind other big problems.

So, the question is how can you live a courageous life?

To do that  you – or all of us – need to place :

1. Hope in God not in their circumstances.
2. God’s hope gives us meaning in life, hope and courage.
3. Hope in our politicians or our culture is no hope.
4. Hope without God puts all of us to shame.

To live a courageous life you / we must:

1. Embrace God’s plan for us

God’s people are called to be hopeful and courageous.

Having courage includes the willingness to live out with humility the “radical mission” God calls each one of us.      His mission, guidance and power will give us hope.      It will change us first and the world around us.   American is not the hope of the world.  Christ in us is the hope of the world!    We are called in his name to be courageous, gracious and stedfast.    Living this way we help the young generation to find hope and courage for themselves too.

2. Entrust our Lives to God
To be courageous we must remember that our lives are not our own.    We need to live our new life daily by entrusting ourselves to God.   He provides, protects, restores, confirms, strengthen, and establishes each life and the life of America.      For that reason, God purposely calls us to objectives greater than us;  to a life that is impossible to live without his power.    By living for God the young generation will be inspired to do the same.

3. Engage the Battle
America needs courageous people to understand its reality, to speak the truth and act.
With courage we must reject both head-in-the-sand naiveté and conspiracy-mongering panic.   We need each other.     Courageously we can stand shoulder-to-shoulder together with God’s people.
Standing without God, without his power or his direction is foolishness.   It hurts us and brings only desperation.

Almost 40% of youth suicides are associated with an identifiable standing alone lives or events, such as the death of a loved one, loss of a valued relationship, parental divorce, or sexual abuse.

 

We can and must bring God’s hope and courage to this desperate generation.

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” – Plato

Do not be afraid of The light!
Do not be afraid to share The Light !

God is not trying to limit our freedom.     He seeks to release us from bondage that can lead to sin and death.  Romans 6:18.
He gives us freedom “If you abide in My Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8: 31-32

With God there is hope to live a courageous and victorious life!    Hope for all of us and for our desperate young generation.

To have hope we shall

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. ” – Albert Einstein

We have God’s power in us – to change this hopeless generation, and to help them live a victorious life.

I would love to hear from you.  I am so encouraged that you want to live a Courageous Life!     So,  let us help you bring it to fruition.

As a Speaker and a Transformation Coach I have been helping many people find  Hope – Courage  – and live a – Victorious Life.    Please email me at  – virginia@virginiaprodanbooks.com    Happy to help you too.
