Michael Kelly was a man with a life as wrecked as the luxury car he’d just run off a winding mountain road and walked away from.
“Want is a cherishing of control,” the old mountain preacher told him. “Recognizing need is being willing to release that control.” And so, Michael Kelly’s journey begins. Michael Kelly had sought to gain the whole world and thought he’d succeeded, till the weight of his own arrogance and conceit collapsed that world around him and left him to struggle through the rubble that remained; grim and frustrated memories of what was emotionally, material, professionally.
From that small mountain church, through a series of encounters more and more evidently directed by the hand of God, Michael finds that to rebuild his life, he must walk a path by newfound faith rather than by his old ways, a path leading through the intent and schemes of men just as arrogant and self-conceited as his own had once been.
“For what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world, and to lose his own soul?”
