Why is it such a struggle for us to surrender everything to God? What does surrendering to God even look like and how are we supposed to do it? Why is it so hard for us to live the life that Jesus died to give us? Is life really supposed to be one constant struggle after another? One of the hardest things to do in life is to let go, giving God everything and never looking back. Laying it all down, never picking it up is the only way we can walk through this dark unfair world shinning and burning brightly for Jesus. Wanting control over our lives is the struggle that many Christians face and the turmoil of that fight is constantly lurking deep in our hearts. For many know what to do, but few actually do it: surrender. When a person holds onto frustration, bitterness, and the injustices of life their pain slowly evolves into chains that hold him down, disabling him to walk through life with peace, love, joy, and compassion. The only way to truly live is to die to our selfish nature every day and cast all of our burdens at the feet of Jesus.

The title of this book is an expression of the following: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing (acceptable) and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2, emphases added. The question that is paramount, is, “How do we discover this good and acceptable and perfect will?” And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from the Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts - deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds ... Colossians 3:15 (Amplified), emphases added. This verse expresses in a quite convincing way, the last word on discovering the will of God: Let the peace of God continually act as umpire in your hearts, deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds (Colossians 3:15, adapted). But this is not a privilege for anyone, as if it were some semi-magic trick to discover God’s will. It is premised upon a deep and meaningful personal relationship with Christ. That relationship is the result of the conversion experience, and results in a life of growing into Christ’s likeness—the process of sanctification. The expression of that life is then found in true Christian worship, with its commitment to God and the desire to live in obedience to Him—doing His will. That is the theme of this book.
Can you remember a time in your life when Jesus became real to you? Jesus has always been a big part of my life. Jesus became real to me the afternoon of May 5, 2016. My decision to take a late afternoon motorcycle ride that day changed my life and began my journey to discovering God's mercy and grace. It's in times of brokenness and survival that we see how fragile life really is. Valleys and mountaintops are all part of this thing we call life. It is sad that it takes times of brokenness and loss for us to become teachable and dependent on God. Real life is found at the end of yourself and the beginning of openness to God. The pages within this book are my story. It is a story of ups and downs. A rediscovery of who God is and who I am in Christ. It is a story of God showing up each day to teach me about myself and my faith. And it is the story of how he continues to teach me more about myself and my faith as he deepens my dependence on him for the journey I am on. If your life is one of brokenness, this book is for you.

Settle into a comfortable chair and prepare to be transported into the exciting world of literature evangelism. A literature evangelist is a person called by God to spread the gospel through the sale and distribution of bible-based literature. They wake up every morning with a general plan of where to go but never know where God will lead or what adventures await. Jean Good relates a smattering of experiences that she has had due to following God’s leading. She downplays the struggles, choosing instead to focus on how God worked on her behalf, opening doors to the very people who need her most. Not only has she seen God work in the lives of others, but also in her own life when she struggled to make ends meet or lacked the necessary tuition to keep her sons in church school. God always came through, providing the money often at the very last moment. This book will inspire you to use the gifts God has given you to tell others of His love.
Women today are expected to multitask--to serve, lead, influence, manage their busy schedules, nurture their families, and at the same time harness their emotions. Meanwhile, Satan, the longtime enemy of women, tells them they are not good enough, not successful enough, and certainly not capable of making a difference. An author who knows how to access the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit in everyday life, Staci Wallace helps women resist the forces of darkness and rise up empowered to take on and win whatever battle they face. In Fueled by Fire, she takes readers on a journey through the lives of women in the Bible as well as through her own story of conquering deadly diseases, climbing corporate ladders, and raising world-changers. She inspires women to believe that, with God, anything is possible.
You’ll get through this. It won’t be painless. It won’t be quick. But God will use this mess for good. Don’t be foolish or naïve. But don’t despair either. With God’s help, you’ll get through this. You fear you won't make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: Will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten? In You'll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. "Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere." Max reminds readers God doesn't promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn't for Joseph--tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed--but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil. With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.
A middle-class woman in rural America and war-affected children in Africa find common ground in their journeys from brokenness to redemption. Author and psychologist Bethany Haley Williams shares how her own emotional healing led her into treacherous war zones, where she provides care to former child soldiers and young girls used as sex slaves. Faced with her own battle with shame and a rocky journey toward healing, Bethany founded Exile International, a nonprofit that implements art/expressive therapy and long-term, rehabilitative care to restore and empower war-affected children—including children rescued from Joseph Kony’s LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). One of those rescued young men, Solomon, was abducted at the age of ten after being forced to watch LRA soldiers maim and murder his father and grandfather. His younger siblings were left behind, and his mother was instructed to “raise them well…for one day we’ll return to take them too.” Solomon is one of hundreds of thousands of boys and girls who have had their innocence stolen and are forced to do the unthinkable on a daily basis. But their horrific experiences are just the beginning. The real story is what happens after. Once these children learn to face their pasts, they are given hope for a future and a vision for changing the fabric of their countries by becoming leaders for peace and advocates of the power of forgiveness.

Liberating ourselves from anything and anyone that hinders our growth and development allows us to rid ourselves of negative toxic feelings and experience healing and wholeness. The author believes that God is an integral part of the counseling experience. 10/19/20 BOOK DESCRIPTION I’ve been working on this book for several years. I decided to publish it to give back to those who: (1) may not have studied pastoral care and counseling in academia, and (2) who desire to enhance their knowledge and skill of pastoral care and counseling. I’m a Christian counselor whose ministry is one of healing. In seeking healing and wholeness, I believe that we must take responsibility for our own lives, so that we can grow into our fullest potential and become all that God created us to become. I believe that God is an integral part of the counseling process and I am a vessel used by God to help others explore the issues in their lives that hinder them from making wise choices, living righteously, being their best self, and living their best life. As a spiritual midwife, I become an enlightened witness to the story of the client and my challenge becomes that of consciously and consistently viewing the client as a child of God who is being molded by God. In this book, readers will learn the concepts and skills of pastoral care and counseling, the importance of stories and oral tradition, terminology specific to the field, the necessity of documentation, and information to include on counseling forms.
