This book was released on 2019-11-12 with total page 176 pages. Book excerpt: Sometimes the path of our life is disrupted, and we don't understand what happened. It may be the result of our own action, or it may be the result of someone else’s choices. Regardless of how, or why it occurred, GOD is able to step into our pain, confusion, or dark situation and move us to the NEXT in our lives – places we would have never moved to because we had no idea they existed, or because we were too comfortable, or because we were too fearful to get up and take a chance. I call them DIVINE DISRUPTIONS. When the enemy thinks he's in control, or thinks he's backed us into a corner, YET GOD steps in to deliver us to something much better than we experienced before. Divine disruptions. I've had many, but some have been much more significant than others. They are so powerful and awesome because ONLY GOD can get the glory for them. Nobody else can! One day, I woke up to what I thought was another normal day, not realizing that by the end of it, my marriage would be shattered, and that I'd find myself in a very dark place. I was in the midst of a storm that suddenly swept me off my feet and carried me down a path I wasn’t prepared for - the path of divorce. Over the course of a little over a year, I traveled through extremely tough terrain that tested my strength and my faith. Thankfully, the enemy’s attempts to destroy me were divinely disrupted by God, and God in great mercy, picked up the pieces and used them mightily. While walking with Him, I learned many lessons about myself and others, and I met people and went places that would have never been part of my journey had it not been disrupted. I came to realize that my life was interwoven with these divine disruptions and God interventions, enabling me to be a partaker of His amazing grace in the midst of my troubles. I refer to the aftermath of them as portraits of grace. God’s word is filled with these portraits in the lives of everyday people like you and me. They’re visible in the aftermath of real-life ups and downs, and challenges and conflicts as they walked through them with God. Real people experiencing God’s real grace and God at work in them, and in us, both to will and to do of His good pleasure. So, join me on a journey that includes a window into a very difficult period of my life, and see how God graciously walked me through it. This book is about two imperfect people who made choices that caused the dissolving of their marriage, and God, in His great mercy and grace, picking up the pieces and using them mightily to bless others. It's a portrait of His redeeming power in the midst of destruction, His incredible wisdom to guide, His ability to give perception beyond what’s apparent, and His grace that is truly sufficient for any thorn that may be lodged within. And while the backdrop of my story is betrayal and divorce, I believe the lessons I learned can be applied to your story as well. I found Him to be a Mighty Counselor and an excellent Coach, and I’m sure you will too.

This book was released on 2013-10-01 with total page 288 pages. Book excerpt: New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller—whose books have sold millions of copies to both religious and secular readers—explores one of the most difficult questions we must answer in our lives: Why is there pain and suffering? Walking with God through Pain and Suffering is the definitive Christian book on why bad things happen and how we should respond to them. The question of why there is pain and suffering in the world has confounded every generation; yet there has not been a major book from a Christian perspective exploring why they exist for many years. The two classics in this area are When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, which was published more than thirty years ago, and C. S. Lewis’s The Problem of Pain, published more than seventy years ago. The great secular book on the subject, Elisabeth Ku¨bler-Ross’s On Death and Dying, was first published in 1969. It’s time for a new understanding and perspective, and who better to tackle this complex subject than Timothy Keller? As the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, Timothy Keller is known for the unique insights he shares, and his series of books has guided countless readers in their spiritual journeys. Walking with God through Pain and Suffering will bring a much-needed, fresh viewpoint on this important issue.

This book was released on 2020-09-01 with total page 376 pages. Book excerpt: All of life is not lived on mountaintops. We will experience some deep valleys of pain, disappointment, uncertainty, sickness, grief, and even the valley of the shadow of death. Sometimes multitudes enter long and deep valleys together, as in prolonged seasons of war, or the COVID-19 pandemic that brought many to hardship, uncertainty, and fear. Yet, it often feels like we are walking through a deep valley alone. It doesn't have to be that way – Scripture makes it clear that if we have even a little faith, the Lord walks with us and guides us. If we keep our eyes on Him, our deepest valleys will strengthen and enrich our walk with God. Stephen Gammon faithfully served God for 40 years as a pastor and military chaplain. Then, in October 2018, he was diagnosed with cancer (Multiple Myeloma); he and his wife Helen entered this deep valley, walking with God by faith. With personal vulnerability and spiritual insight, he posted regular medical updates on the CaringBridge website, sharing many priceless lessons learned while walking with God through their valley. Tens of thousands of online visits and innumerable personal responses and reflections from readers attest to the power of these truths. Now edited and published in this book, these lessons will point you towards genuine contentment and peace as you walk through your own deep valleys.

Book excerpt: Worship is a dynamic, living encounter that should never be static. In the Church of England, although Common Worship provides texts for every season and occasion, the church constantly needs to refresh its worship, just as it reshapes its presence in local communities. In this comprehensive volume, a wide range of experienced liturgists, musicians and pastoral practitioners consider the principles that will determine the character and quality, as well as the content, of our worship in the future. It explores how new forms can meet new needs while remaining faithful to the church’s essential understanding of worship. Over twenty chapters consider how emerging forms of worship can be: - Relational, accessible and inclusive - Rooted in Scripture, the Creeds, and Spirit-filled - Sacramental, symbolic and multi-sensory - Transformative, pastoral and prophetic The contributors are all members of the Group for the Renewal of Worship, a broadly evangelical group within the Church of England and including senior clergy, musicians, theological college tutors in liturgy and former members of the Liturgical Commission.

Free book TCharismatic Pastoral Care of the Terminally Ill and Chronically Disabled. This book was released on 2016-09-02 with total page 124 pages. Book excerpt: Healing of the sick is a prominent theme in the biblical narratives. However, when it comes to caring for the chronically and terminally sick, there are no clear directives in the New Testament describing how the church may minister to them. There are significant differences in the way many churches approach this matter. Even among the charismatic churches that believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including miraculous healing, are available to present-day believers, there are differences in the way the sick are cared for. This book investigates the pastoral challenges with regard to chronic infirmities and terminal illnesses in a charismatic-church context. This is undertaken with the understanding that many who are chronically and terminally ill in this context present poor medical prognosis and have remained unhealed in spite of prayers. Clear foundational values are drawn for defining the pastoral challenges and objectives. Three true cases, present in public domain, are presented and analyzed to identify the challenges. The pastoral-care objectives are defined, and strategies are drawn to meet these. The findings and conclusions would be relevant to the pastors, the sick and those who care for them, and indeed, the whole church. The author is personally involved in the care of the sick as a practicing surgeon as well as a pastor. Being a pastor in a charismatic church that believes in praying for miraculous healing of the sick and practicing modern medicine, the author is faced with the challenges of pastoral care for those with poor medical prognosis who remain unhealed in spite of believing in prayers; they are very close to his heart. The author provides the foundational principles and goals in the pastoral care of such situations and outlines the strategies for doing so without compromising the conviction that Jesus Christ still heals the sick.

Book excerpt: In post-modern America, aThe Christian Religiona is seen as backward, stale, and not politically correct. Many churches have attempted to adapt by blending into the liberal landscape. They compromise their message, which results in a diluted Gospel or aEasy-Believism.a It burdens no one with conformity to outdated notions such as discipleship, morality, and self-denial. The adherents to this Cheap Grace blend into society very well and do not appear to be any different than their secular neighbors. Christ does not call people to be areligiousa pew-sitters. He came to seek and save the lost. Those who respond to His call are His disciples. Walking the Walk by Faith presents Christas Gospel and the steps to becoming a true disciple of Christ, who walks in the spirit. The true disciple of Christ does not conform to society, but will stand out with a character that is just like His.

This book was released on 2016-10-11 with total page 154 pages. Book excerpt: The book of Job has captured the imagination of Christians and non-Christians alike. In this study, Ronald Hesselgrave shows how the personal story of Job's intense struggle with suffering is representative of the pain and vexation within the entire creation, and how Job's eventual healing and restoration in the context of his relationship to God is connected to the "grand narrative" of God's purpose to redeem humanity and defeat evil in the world. He explores the themes of creation, evil, lament, justice, and God's sovereignty, grace, and redemption within the separate speeches in Job and against the backdrop of wisdom literature as a whole. A further concern of this study is with the pastoral or practical value of the book of Job, both for caregivers and those who may themselves be going through the valley of deep trauma and suffering. Dr. Hesselgrave brings together theological, social, and psychological insights in a way that deepens our understanding of suffering and provides the basis for a more holistic and comprehensive response to the needs of those who suffer. A final summary of the implications of Job for a practical theology of suffering is given in the conclusion.

Book excerpt: When someone becomes a Christian, they enter into a lifelong journey of God-driven transformation into the likeness of Christ. But what does this transformation process look like, and what means does God use to bring about spiritual growth? How does a Christian continue growing spiritually? How do they prevent the practice of the spiritual discipline of meditating on God's word from become mechanical when they may have read through the Bible many times? How do they mature in prayer? And how do they continue being conformed to the image of Christ for the rest of their lives rather than simply putting their spiritual gearstick into neutral and coasting into eternity? This book seeks to answer such questions. It begins by exploring the contours of this spiritual transformation into Christlikeness before introducing various means God uses to bring this about. The book seeks to give hope and instruction, both to the weary and to the strong, so that they can grow more like Christ through the means of grace that God has provided.
