Months earlier I had sent in the final manuscript for Surrendered & Untamed. After four years of writing that book I had discovered that writing a book was hard work, and also, just because one journey is complete doesn’t mean the story is over.
One day I asked God if I should write another book, but I was hesitant. I wasn’t sure I wanted to write another book.
The joy and connection to my Fathers heart had become so real when writing. It had become a part of our love language; one of the ways I could tell Him how much I love Him. And one of the ways I was discovering how He loves.
So when I submitted the book idea to God, I was a little unsure on whether it was a good idea. I didn’t want to disrupt the wonder of our writing times together with thoughts about, well, you, the reader… no offense.
The difference between writing a book and a journal is who reads it later. When I write a book, if I do it well, you, the reader, are invited into my journey. You feel what I feel and see what I see. And along the way, hopefully, you discover new insights into who God is and your own story.
To write a book is hard work, I have to get vulnerable, put myself out there, suggest things that might be uncomfortable, for both you and me. Plus there’s the hours, days, months, years of trying to capture a thought or communicate a feeling. There is a contending that happens when I write, for you, the reader. A faithful plodding, and believing; and there are moments of doubt. And then after all that, there are the agents who say “maybe later” and the publishers who say no.
So, I well remember the day I asked God if I should invite you into our writing times. And I remember His immediate “yes!” His encouragement was so overwhelming, I had to stop what I was doing to catch my breath. In that moment I sensed that this would be the most important thing I would ever write.
That was four years ago. I have felt my Father’s good pleasure over this book from the very first word. And while I couldn’t have given you the title that day, while there wasn’t a synopsis, I can say that in the last four years I have been transformed through the writing, and discovering, and living of this book’s message.
The book is titled Prone To Love and it releases with Destiny Image on Tuesday Feb 18th.
And I believe it truly is the most important thing I will ever write. The message of this book has become the foundational thought that my life revolves around. It’s the transformational revelation that my life exists within.
This book is about the always good love of my heavenly Father. He loves me! And I know it, and I’m becoming sure. I’m being changed, I’m being restored, and renewed.
The discovery of His love is my one passion, my life’s true ambition. Over the last four years I have been graced to write about it, to become convinced His love is the answer to all the questions, it’s the one sustaining joy, it’s the power of heaven to earth, and it’s the glory of sons and daughters. He loves me and I exist to become sure!
I hope you read this book. I hope it’s written well. I hope you can feel what I feel, and see what I see, and along the way become sure in the Fathers love. I hope that you discover your own story – He loves you, perfectly, completely, and always.
Dear reader, I want to thank you for the honor of writing this book for you. It’s changed my life.

I am so thankful for you Jason Clark. What an amazing thing the internet is. Without I would not been able to put into words what I feel about the church, Jesus, the bible, etc. Your podcast, and other shows on youtube, have enabled my husband and me to move forward to a new understanding of Christ. We are so excited (even though our pastor says the people you are listening to have gone off the deep end). Thank you. I am 65 years old and been a Christian since I was 19. My husband is 71. We can’t stop proclaiming the TRUE love of God. I would love to see you guys address gays/lesbians, etc. with your thoughts and with your guests. Thank you again.
Sorry for the late response. For some reason, I was not getting emails forwarded to me from this site so I’m just seeing your comment.
So happy and encouraged to read this! Thankful to be a part of the journey with you and your husband and glad the podcast s encouraging! Praying grace for your pastor and for you guys as you continue to grow sure in love.
We haven’t talked directly on the subject of homosexuality, mostly because for so long the church has taken a sin-conscious approach, and thus it’s nearly impossible to have a conversation that wouldn’t hurt someone. But if we find grace and opportunity to reveal the love of God in this area, we will do it!
Dear Jason Clark,This week I taught the widow’s flour that multiplied with Elisha and my friend said One time inAfrica Jason Clark bought a hamburger at McDonalds and fed 10 people with it, started by giving one to a beggar and he kept feeding more beggars, not sure if he ended up eating the tenth burger! Can you provide any further details, would love to tell the kids this in review next week, and found a picture of you on the internet to go with telling them. In Christ, C.B. Eagles
