Chris Jacobs Writes from The United States.....
"You are such an amazing individual and please do not stop doing you because, you not only inspire and encourage me but, you seem to grow out and beyond the limitations most people don't try to even evolve to. Your level is the level I am trying and not dreaming to be, with your assistance, it will not ever be a dream, just a goal!!!!

John Marok writes from The United States………..
Don, you are a good man, full of encouragement for the body of Christ. Put your eyes on the one who loves you above everything else. Don't take anything against yourself because YOU have died in Christ and it is no longer YOU that lives, but Christ that lives in you and the life you now live, you live by the faith of Him who loves you.
God Bless you
Cynthia Isaac writes from The United States……

Amanda C. writes from Canada......
We should only be opening our arms wide to embrace Grace & God's love...which in turn will be embracing/receiving His blessings, so we will not be in want. He is the only One who can fill all our needs; spiritually, emotionally & physically!
Hin Taslim writes from The United States…..
Praise the Lord, Jesus obedience that makes us able to live a Godly life...He is head.
Carla Bey writes from The United States…..
May we see people as God see them and not thru the eyes of others. I lay myself before Jesus and ask Him to clear my way, remove the thorns and debris which stumbles my steps, and may he use me in His divine way. Send in those who can help, and remove me from those who I may (unknowingly) hinder. Bless you in your walk brother-
Stefan Emmanuel Olsem writes from The Netherlands.......
Let Jesus and His finished works manifest in life daily. Give me wisdom in all the areas of my life and fresh revelations about His finished works. I want my mind to be established in His righteousness. Who I am and what I have in Christ, so I can tell other´s about His finished works. Use this earthly vessel of to glorify Your Son Father. Show your grace and strength in weaknesses. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Jonathan Lafitte writes from The United States…..
Amen Donald..amen! Jesus is with you always. Never lose sight of that. He is your wisdom, confidence, competence, joy, happiness, and the love for which you desire so much to BE. Remember, just as Jesus is, you are because however God sees Jesus, He sees you as.
Pamela T writes from Australia.......
God is faithful and it pays for us to keep focused on Him and not lose sight of His promises. I was chatting with an old friend of mine and we both were commenting how we've kept on our faith walk and despite all the obstacles, we've stuck with Him through thick and thin. God is definitely is better at that than we are.
John Marok writes from The United States….
Keep up that great work that you are doing Donald! The Lord is richly blessing you :)
God is with you...
Vanessa Nicolier writes from Colombia.....
Mr. Williams, I really thought you were a pastor. Thank you again for the amazing book! It is not an easy time for any of us in my family, especially for my mom and I. However we are holding on to GOD. We know HE can do anything. I started reading your book; there is one poem that talks to me. It's on page 107, called "God said be patient" I really like it! Another one is, "Dear Mother" on page 96, because I am blessed with an amazing mother! May GOD bless you and may your ministry expand so much more!
Carol Jones writes from The United States......
People can sometimes become one sided and don't realize God is the creator. we only think we know things work by human standards. It is amazing God can cause supernatural to become our need now. He sees spiritual realm, we see natural realm. Lord thank you for creating our needs in your due season. Hallelujah.
Tammy Kahmann writes from The United States.....

Tsegaab Tesfaye writes from Ethiopia…..
Donald I am from Ethiopia very blessed on your post Jesus very blessed you!!!!
Donald you are a blessing! Keep doing what you're doing and don't worry about who really needed what. The Lord will put those He wants blessed by you in your path...even those who will not come to know Him in their life will have been touched by Him...and ALL of it is part of His Glorious plan! We know one chases away one thousand and two chases away ten thousand and two are better than one...is there this type of ministry near you or others brothers and sisters to join you? We have all been places The Lord has freed, redeemed or protected us....often He sends us back to free His others. His Blessings and Peace Brother Donald.....praying with you...for all these...may His Wisdom and Love direct our feet.
God Bless You!

Mike Verges writes from The United States........
Today each of my Sunday School Students in my adult class received a copy of your book. As each person glanced through it they got so interested in the contents of the book, they could not put it down, and our Class today was discussing the valuable contents of the book. I know it must have taken a lot of time, research and effort to get it all together. How proud you must be. I am amazed at your ability to place in poetic terms inspiration that will always be needed and useful as we go from day to day.
I thank you and am so proud for you!

Michael Wilson writes from The United States........
All praise and honor be to God,
In my times of need, God has fulfilled His promise to never leave nor forsake me. He has provided a Savior, a Comforter and Intercessor, a blueprint (Bible), and an opportunity to have life everlasting. Now, in this due season, I am afforded the opportunity to read scripture based poems from a Mighty Man of God. The poems talk about real, everyday situations and express those situations in a way that is easy to follow as well as where to find actual scriptures that relate to the poem and situation. It has been a blessing for me to be able to “power-up” in the mornings before I come to work so that I am spiritually enriched by the time I co-exist with employees and co-workers. I thank God for Donald Ray Williams and In My Times of Need. Continue to be a blessing to us all, allowing the Spirit of God to direct your path. You are loved and appreciated.

I think that Donald Williams’s book, In Times of Need, Poems of Encouragement, has become the most popular book that is read in my house. It is very inspirational to me and my three girls. My daughters are really enjoying this book and all I can say to you Mr. Williams is keep letting GOD use you. You are helping people who are going through so much right now and I just want to say thank you for this blessing that GOD has given to you to share with others. May GOD continue to bless and keep you.

Don, your book of Poems is very powerful and full of true meaning and inspiration; it reaches the Mind, Heart and most of all your SOUL. It provides you with an inner peace that words cannot describe. We have truly enjoyed reading each poem and we thank you for sharing your Godly gift with us.
We sent a copy of your book to a dear friend of mine and this is what she had to say;
"Mr. Williams, this book is a true blessing. God has so much more for you and you are a real blessing to all who read your words and the ones he has the grace to touch".
May God continue to bless you as you continue the journey that He has set forth for you!

Johnny Hernandez writes from The United States........
God bless the person behind this book, it's truly inspiring and a blessing in people's lives. Especially when you feel that sometimes you are waking alone. This book has touched my life in a big way. Reading the words in this book has given me a different perspective in life. Just knowing that God all mighty, creator of heaven and earth, is always there for you. Sometimes as humans we tend to forget that God is in control and that he knows the reason for everything that happens in our lives. We also forget that we are like a flower, today we're here and tomorrow we're gone. I love this book; I recommended to anyone who is going through struggles and even if you're not struggling, just take the time to read it. It will truly encourage your life. God Bless!
Cora Ledet writes from The United States........
Donald, There is an expression that says "you can't take the salt from the stew", and it is so true. You are the salt in the stew, and so you will always remain. I hold you in a special place for many reasons, and now, through your book, you will reveal yourself to countless others who will also come to know how special you really are, and how intimate you are with God. Your words of encouragement will surely touch the hearts of everyone who reads them. May the hand of God bless and prosper everything you endeavor to do.
Mary Verges writes from The United States........
I have just finished reading your fantastic book. I could not put it down once I started reading it. Each page and poem, with its Bible verse was more incredible than the one before. This unbelievably inspiring book sits on my end table. Each and everyday I will have reason to refer to it again and again, as each day in our lives is different and each with another challenge. Your book will bring me through some very touch times. What a fantastic tool for the benefit of the soul. Such a low cost for the priceless cure it will provide. I have already given some for gifts, the most valuable gift anyone can give, not only for Christmas but throughout the year. Thank You for all the precious time and thought you put into it to help us all!

Jocelyn Bailey writes from The United States........
Congratulations Mr. Don!
For those of you who have not read this book, I encourage you to do so. This book has been an inspiration in my life. The words that are said in some of these poems, hit right at home. This book tells the truth about where I come from as a kid and where I’m headed as an adult, parent and now a grandmother. I simple love this book with its inspiring poetry and just awesome bible verses. I read this book at minimum three times a day. I read it in the morning before I go to work, once on my lunch break and right before I go to bed. This is truly a book for all households to have. This book has really brought some change in my life. You think Mr. Don’s cooking is great, wait until you purchase his book, I guarantee you will not be able to put it down. God is the truth, the way and the light, let His truth lead you. Mr. Don you have always been an inspiration in my life. Keep up the go work, God has a lot in store for you. As Mr. Don say; be encouraged.
Tommy Smith writes from The United States........
This book is truly inspiring. It helps me understand the person I am and the person I want to
become. It’s an amazing feeling when you think you know who you are and then come across a book that lets you know just how much you didn’t. I always knew what I wanted
to do with my life, but I tend to procrastinate a lot. After reading this book, “In Times of Need, Poems of Encouragement”, it’s all systems go for me. I feel much better about the person I want to become and the future for my family. If you purchase this book and read it, it will inspire you to become a better Husband, Wife, Father, Mother, and just an all around better person. I can honestly say that this is the seed that change
Sandra Alexander writes from The United States........
This book is an exceptional piece of writing that ushers one direction into the heart and nature of God: it is truly a blessing and a source of encouragement to all.
Louis Blackshear writes from The United States........
I’m not a big time journalist from Rollin Stone, nor am I Siskel & Ebert the movies critics; in fact I’m not even a reader. I only purchased this book out of moral support of a good friend. After purchasing the book, I sat it on the shelf for about a week, then one day a situation occurred and I picked the book up and opened it. I read a poem, on the very situation I was going through and that poem nailed it, dead on the head. So I proceeded to the next page and read a little more. I found myself at the beginning then halfway through the book. Whatever you may be going through or dealing with in life, there is a poem and a word of encouragement in this book that will see you through it. I mean that! You will know how good God is to have touched this man’s heart to put these words of encouragement in a book. I’m not speaking just for me, but the whole world can have something other than the bible to find peace of mind and assurance in their life. As I said in the beginning, I’m not a journalist nor and movie critic, but I am a new reader.
PS. As a musician says about a new hit, buy the album, a new reader says, buy the book.
Lachone Johnson writes from The United States........
In every poem I read I feel the writers past experiences good and bad. The poems are teaching me how to handle life experiences. Every bible verse that is under each poem helps me understand what I have read and how to better myself as a person, which I know will get me one step closer in knowing God. I pray that this book bless many lives and gives the reader peace compassion and understanding; as it has done for me!
Robert Williams writes from The United States........
I found this book to be extremely encouraging. I have taken it to community functions to help encourage others. I even teach with it during my Sunday school lessons. It is truly uplifting and helps me live my life in a positive manner. All of the poems are great, but my personal favorite poem in this book is, "They Whisper and Transpire", I read in on daily basis. Thank you for putting together such an inspirational book.
Michael Wilson writes from The United States........
You are an inspiration to me and many men like me. Continue to bless others as this is truly your calling, and your reward will be great.
Shirley Cleveland writes from The United States........
This is very inspiring I will forever hold you close to my heart and my God continue to bless you abundantly.
Chriscione Johnson writes from The United States........
Congratulations Don, may the Blessings of continue to shine on you and your family.
