The Christian’s Journey Through Grief by Dr Carol Peters Tanksley

Just Do The Next Thing

The Christian’s 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.

Never Give Up Hope: Waging War With Cancer by Craig Davis

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 us.

The Veil by Blake K Healy

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.
