SYNOPSIS : IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GOOD THINGS CAN COME OUT OF OUR BROKEN DREAMS? Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus. Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can. β€œOur family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say β€˜God, I Trust You.’” β€” STEVEN CURTIS and MARY BETH CHAPMAN Grammy Award-Winning Artist and New York Times Bestselling Author β€œLaura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God. She’s joyful, genuine, and faithful even though her story includes messy chapters. Β­This book will be on my nightstand for a long time!” β€”LISA HARPER Author and Bible Teacher

SYNOPSIS : Surviving the Unimaginable By Ruth Janie Webb He beat me with a hammer. He beat me with a bat. He strangled me until all of my breath had gone and I was left for dead. He shoved the barrel of a 22 riffle in my mouth and told me hed blow my brains out and kill the children too. So when he spit on me, bit me, slapped me or kicked me, it didnt seem so bad. Self-esteem? What self-esteem! As bad as the physical abuse was, the mental abuse seemed almost worse. My husband would brag tome that he had other women that were prettier, smarter and more desirable. I was left alone with the children for days at a time. He would leave because the house was too noisy. Hed leave when the bills were due. Hed leave to visit those other women. If I dared ask where hed been, hed beat me yet again. Women who stay in abusive relationships are afraid. Only God can deliver. It takes God to give a woman the strength and ability she needs to step away from this type of demonic, controlling relationship. I know the excuses. I used them myself. I dont have any where to go. There is always somewhere to go. I dont want to leave my stuff. Baby, when youre really ready and you have had enough, you will leave everything. When I left my first husband, I left everything in that house. I went to work and never returned. I only had the clothes on my back. My babies need their daddy. If you dont seek help and leave that abusive relationship, you and your babies will end up dead. He will kill me if I leave. He will kill you if you stay. He will change. No, he wont! Not without Gods help. He has to want Gods help for himself, not because you want him to want God. He said he was sorry. He is sorry if he put his hands on you. He is a coward living in the shell of a man. He loves me. Love is not abusive. He only does it when hes drunk. Then he needs to stop drinking. These are just a few of our excuses. No one deserves to be beaten, no one. Not for any reason. Stop blaming yourself. I thank God that He was with me and allowed me to make it out alive. It was only His divine protection and love that allowed us to make it out alive. You must stop endangering and damaging yourself and your children. Once I gave my life to God, I no longer had low self esteem. I picked up my head and walked in who God said I was. I survived the unimaginable and you can too. Now instead of dwelling on the pain and regret of 29 1/2 years of marriage that nearly killed me and my children, I am using the experience to help others. God is using me to encourage and minister to both men and women who are in abusive relationships. My life is a miracle. My mess had been turned into a message of hope and healing. I pray you allow God to do the same for you.

SYNOPSIS : God has healed in the past and wants to heal now. But though they pray in faith, go to healing meetings, and strive to have enough faith, many are not healed as they would wish to be. When God Doesn't Heal Now examines the myths about healing that are built on partial truths and looks at the profound relationship between prayer, healing, and the sovereignty of God. This guide offers a balanced look at teachings on healing, faith healers, and ways to bring biblical clarity to beliefs that often foster guilt, defeat, and despair when believers are not immediately healed. When God Doesn't Heal Now is an encouraging book which affirms the biblical truth that God is our healer.

SYNOPSIS : As humans, things happen to us sometimes that we cannot fully understand. We desire to explain them when from human perspective there's no explanation that really exists. Our perplexion at things of that nature are not just about when they happen to us but also the things we witness in the world around us. They oftentimes shake the foundations of our faith in God to the core. But as much as not knowing hurts, at no time should our reaction be to accuse God for things we don't understand. Rather, we should know that God is not always the architect of all our problems and that He might not always save us from people that live to harm us or bless us the way we want because we take a stand with Him. His promise however is one thing and that is that He'll work it all out for HIS OWN ENDS even the wicked for a day of disaster Proverbs 16:4b. However your pain occurred, God's declared intentions are that He'll use all of your problems any which way they present to work out His will for your life. The deaths of some of the people that went before us is proof that for reasons best known to Him, God at times chooses not to deliver people that take a stand with Him. And it's not because He hated such people but because of what He already planned to use the situation for.

SYNOPSIS : Is Lent about my devotion to Christ the crucified? Is Easter about my celebrating Christ risen from the dead? Do I measure my Christian life by some standard of piety and say I’m following Christ’s example? Lent...Easter...the whole Church year proclaims Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. Faith is trust in His blood-won forgiveness of the world’s sin. Through faith we fix our eyes on Jesus in our daily devotions, gathering in worship, and constancy in prayer. FIX YOUR EYES ON JESUS walks you, the reader, through daily devotions from Ash Wednesday through Pentecost. See your need for repentance. Follow Jesus as He defeats Satan in the wilderness. Rejoice in the cross He leads you to bear as His disciple. For He has died once for you on the cross and shed His blood for you. He rose to daily proclaim you forgiven, washed, made alive in His Name. The crucifix shines Christ Jesus’ ongoing love for us. Yes, Jesus is risen, never to die again. Now, He who once bled and died sympathizes with us who daily walk through death’s dark shadow. I pray these devotions will encourage your Lent and Easter seasons. Heb. 12:1-2 β€œTherefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”

SYNOPSIS : Getting a blessing from God, doesn't come naturally. It comes from having belief in the Almighty God who sits on high. Understanding the primary source of where supernatural powers are originated from, plays an important role in receiving a blessing or miracle. One important factor to keep in mind when praying for a blessing is to put forth one's best effort in whatever God ask of one to do . When enough roadways are placed behind you on this Christian journey, blessings begin to come forth. There are many supernatural gifts that are sent from the heavens above, in order to be a blessing to Christians below on earth. When God becomes content and satisfied enough with the praise and glory hes given in return, miracles began to perform. Miracles will keep pouring out, until ones cup has run over. Continue to put into effect the spirit of giving. Its more to give than it is to receive in the eyesight of God. God will continue to bless the people who are willing to give to another brother and sister in Christ. Giving comes from the heart. Something has to be felt on the inside, before it can be manifested on the outside. We must first give honor to God in all we say and do. Without him nothing is possible, or impossible.
