I saw God’s faithfulness in a huge way this past Saturday. Saturday evening was the Christian Literary Awards and the “Hope Prevails Bible Study” had been nominated in the Bible Study category. I had been so sick after treatment that I truly wasn’t sure I was going to be able to make it until that evening when I just decided, sick or not, I was going. Evenings and nights tend to be my hardest time, and this event ran into the late evening, but God gave me the strength to make it through.
Have you ever found yourself plagued with worry? Maybe even putting off your time with God in lieu of the never-ending to-do list that comes face to face with insufficient time? Friend, I’ve been there. It has robbed me of peace and left my soul unsettled. If you can relate, then you’re going to enjoy today’s guest post by my sweet friend, Ginger Harrington, author of “Holy in the Moment: Simple Ways to Love God and Enjoy Your Life.” I hope you’ll grab a mug of coffee or hot tea, put up your feet for a few minutes today as we visit with Ginger about one simple way to settle our soul. I pray you will be blessed. There’s a Book Giveaway so be sure to read to the end!
It started as a little desire that rattled around in my heart like a wayward pinball. I shared with a friend, “I just want to help those who live too far away to come into my office. Depression doesn’t have to be a way of life.”
She affirmed what my heart already sensed, “All of your years of training, as well as your decades of experience and your love of writing, puts you in an excellent place to write a book, a resource for those in need.”
Have you ever been in a painful place and wondered where God was in the midst of it all? Have you ever found yourself smack dab in the middle of the valley and wondered what to do about it or if anyone cared? Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to my friend, Lyli Dunbar, who shares her experience as an encouragement to you in that place. Lyli is an encourager and a prayer warrior at heart. I know you’ll be blessed by her post.
While I am an author, I am also an avid reader of other authors’ books, and am frequently asked for resources to help my patients, friends, and family with situations they encounter. So I thought you might like to see my list of Top 25 must read, life changing books (the best books about living life to the fullest) from books read this past year.
