About the Book

There may come times in your life when God puts someone in your path whom you may or may not know who may well be facing a spiritual life and death situation. The time and attention you give to that individual in their time of need may serve as the catalyst for the in-breaking of God’s providential will in the life of that person. As time passes, you might occasionally find yourself reflecting on that experience from the past, thanking God for how he used you in such a time of need. But slowly, almost imperceptibly, you begin to sense that God had something profound to reveal to you through that situation.

In DAYBREAK, author Paul Gasque begins by showing how deep within the recesses of your own spirit may lie a hidden hopelessness desperately searching for a way out—a dark, seemingly unredeemed area of your being. You have been unable to name it. Could it be a sheer lack of purpose for and meaning to life? You long for a better day, a better situation, a better station in life. But when? As your heart becomes open to the Spirit of God moving in your life, there is a sound, the voice of a gentle whisper as if speaking to you from a remote distance, but drawing nearer and clearer, saying to you, “Hold on, hold on, for daybreak is coming. The light of Christ has not left you. Your new day has arrived.”

About the Author

PAUL GASQUE is a former pastor in the United Methodist Church and a retired investigator with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. Following his retirement from law enforcement, he completed the Course of Study at Duke Divinity School and served in pastoral ministry for thirteen years in South Carolina. These two vocations have afforded him opportunities to work with people of various cultures from all walks of life in challenging, heartrending, and rewarding circumstances. He has served on mission teams in Rwanda and Malawi in Sub-Saharan Africa and currently serves as the chairperson of missions in his home church. Paul is frequently called upon to lead worship services in other area churches in times of pastoral absence. He and his wife, Laura, participate in a weekly Reading Buddy program at the elementary school in their hometown of Latta, South Carolina. They are blessed with a son and daughter-in-law and a daughter and son-in-law.
