Just Do The Next Thing
Journey Through Grief
by Dr Carol Peters Tanksley is a comprehensive guide to journeying through grief.
We will all make the journey through the dark valley at several times in our
lives. No two journeys will be the same as we have to adjust to a new ‘normal.’
This is a very readable book and accessible for
all. The author covers everything you could possibly need to know from the
practical funeral arrangements to the finances to the big questions we all have,
to the guilt and the physical pain of grief.
There is no ‘right’ way to grieve. Neither is
there a ‘wrong’ way. We need to get through it as best we can.
We need to have at least one good friend who
will bend their ear to us. We need to do the practical things such as eating
and sleeping and keep just stepping towards the next thing. It really is a case
of one step at a time.
Accessible For All
Profound Good by Blake K Healy follows on from his
book The Veil. Once again he shows us how to tap into the spiritual gifts that
God has for us.
Angels and demons are all around us. The gift
of seeing with spiritual eyes was one that scared Blake K Healy as a boy but
one that he embraced as he got older. This book has many personal stories in
The author encourages us to pursue the gifts
that God has for us and to learn how to use them.
When we see the world as God sees it, it is a
revelation. We will see far more than we expected to, when we look with the
eyes of God.
Fear Doesn’t Stand A Chance When I Stand In Your Love
Never Give Up Hope: Waging War With Cancer by Craig Davis – wow what a powerful testimony of a family battling cancer. Craig Davis shows tremendous faith and courage as he puts his life into the hands of God. Craig Davis’ battle built trust and faith in God. As you read this book, may your trust and faith in God grow.
Miracles still happen. “Miracles… force us into
a decision.” We either choose to believe or we don’t but either way, our choice
does not negate the miracle.
Craig Davis realises with hindsight, that even
when he was not walking with God, God was still preparing the groundwork for
later in his life. “God was at work and we did not even realise it.” God will
relentlessly pursue us until we make a decision for Him. “I was running from
the life Jesus wanted me to live. But God kept after me.” God never gives up on
Pressing Into God
The Veil by Blake K Healy is a powerful Christian book about living
within the spiritual realm. There is the personal testimony of the author as
well as a narrative showing how to receive this spiritual gift from God.
It is important to know who you are in God and what He says about you and over
you. We need to press into our relationship with God. “Knowing who you are in
Christ determines how you think.” We need to focus our minds on God. “Make your
relationship with God the core of your identity.” Let His word be the fragrance
in our lives. “When you’re a child of God, you change everything you touch.”
There are things that may keep us from hearing
God, such as fear and unforgiveness. The enemy wants to keep us from God but he
has no power over us. “Demons have no authority over you unless you give it to
them.” Our identity is in Jesus and what He says about us.
