    Thank you so much Dr. Marshall for sharing the faith. You have helped me more than you can know. Blessings on you and your family.

    • Dear Maggie,

      God bless you! This means a lot to me. When there are weeks that I don’t want to sit down at the microphone, it’s comments like yours here that keep me going. Thank you for your encouragement.

      Have a great Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for the five questions. I will be taking early retirement soon and I have been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. May God bless you for your good work!

    I went to iTunes to give Taylor 5-stars, but could NOT figure out how to do it … ))<: }

    Doctor Marshall,
    I’m not trying to say that I’m a righteous man but I will say that I did fall down on at least four occasions in the past and my last fourth falling was in the early nineties. In reality back then some called “IT” (my fallings) “Nervous Breakdowns” but we’re now in The Twenty First Century and as you said often, we must ask God to help U>S (usual sinners) to get proper sleep and learn in prayer what will really give us God’s Energy.
    Long story short, I now believe that back then I cheated once because I’ve only taken four fallings but GOD (Good Old Dad) has given me and my wife five loving daughters in return.
    Keep UP the good words and works Doctor Marshall and give my best to your good wife “Joy”.

    This episode was an answer to more than one prayer as of late. Being a convert from (many) protestant churches, God’s calling, perfect and permissive will are things with which I struggle and never fully wrapped my head around. Thank you for your faithfulness to your apostolate.

  • Adam

    “God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments.

    Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about.”
    Blessed John Henry Newman
