     If you are trying to figure out what life is all about and get a handle on the important things in your life, you may find that your flight path is unpredictable and dangerous.  Perhaps the problem is only that you have never put the right "Pilot" into the cockpit of your life.
     God's flight plan includes a safe landing for those who let Him man the controls of their lives even when we encounter storms and dangers that would otherwise bring us down.  Let Him pilot the airship of your life.  Find out how and why in Royal Blue's new book, "Manning the Controls."
     Who controls your life is the most important issue you will ever face, for it influences every decision you make.  God invites you to make room for Him with the promise that he will then direct your life:  "In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths." (Prov. 3:6).
     Satan whispers to us, "Do your own thing!  Make up your own mind!  Be the captain of your own soul!"  If we succumb to his suggestions, we find ourselves at sea, unable to cope with the buffeting life can give us.  Even worse, we are at the mercy of the Great Deceiver and he leads us in paths of destruction.  The freedom we expected to find dissipates like the morning fog when the sun arises.
     Pastor Royal Blue gives practical, Bible-based advice on how we can turn the controls of our lives over to our Savior and find direction, purpose and significance in the decisions we all face in our daily lives.  His message is stated in an interesting and easy-to-read way which holds our attention.
     I can also tell you, after knowing him for twenty-five years, that Royal lives the advice he gives.  He speaks to us from a lifetime of experience which has enriched him and made his ministry relevant to those who hear.  You'll find your investment in reading this book to be well rewarded.
