JOSEPH: Bound Under The Guile Of the Devil...BUT GOD...

JOSEPH: Bound Under The Guile Of the Devil…BUT GOD…

Erica Boerman

Joseph’s life can be summed up in one phrase from Genesis 50:20 “…but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Whatever happened to him in his life, God had a bigger plan and purpose which was the saving of many lives…Whatever Satan has planned for you and whatever oppositions, struggles or even just the day to day monotony of laundry and meal planning, God’s ultimate purpose is the saving of many lives. Where your mind goes – down the rabbit hole of anxiety, defeat, “overwhelmedness” or fixed, albeit sometimes by sheer grit, on the cross will ultimately determine how you fare on the other side of trials.

* Will you wallow in self-pity?
* Will you blame others?
* Will you despair and retreat inward?
* Will you manipulate to get your way?
* Will you put on a façade and fake your way through life?

That is what Satan wants more than anything. He wants your focus off of God. Therefore, your answer, my answer to everything that he throws at us must always, unquestioningly be “BUT GOD.” The first words out of your mouth when you are feeling like a failure, a fraud or a freak should be, “BUT GOD.” Free Study Guide Included!

We Embrace Wisdom. Spiritual Maturity. Humility.: a spiritual journal on intentional living (Family on Purpose Book 1)

We Embrace Wisdom. Spiritual Maturity. Humility.: a spiritual journal on intentional living (Family on Purpose Book 1)

Rachel Toalson

It’s not so much a pursuit. It’s a recognition.

Wisdom, spiritual maturity and humility are not so much pursuits we make with our lives as they are a recognition that clicks into place: we already have wisdom, spiritual maturity and humility inside of us. We just have to uncover it.

The world does a competent job of veiling our wisdom, spiritual maturity and humility, though, so how does one go about uncovering it? In January: We Embrace Wisdom. Spiritual Maturity. Humility. Rachel leads her readers through her most private journals, working out for herself how one goes about uncovering wisdom and spiritual maturity and humility. With essays about failed expectations, overcoming victim mentality and the pride that comes before a hard fall, this first episode in the Family on Purpose series promises its readers great hope and encouragement.

Through Rachel’s candor and insight, you will learn:

• What a Family Sabbath can teach us about spiritual maturity
• The wisdom that lies in knowing (and accepting) who we and our children were made to be
• The power of letting ourselves fail
• How the messes children make become memories
• What admitting our mistakes can show us about humility and wisdom

and much more.

As the mother of six young boys, Rachel understands what it’s like to feel alone in her world. That’s why she opens up her journals, and, essentially, her family life to the eyes of her readers in ways that let them stand in unashamed solidarity and whisper, “me too.” Because there is wisdom and hope in authenticity.

We Embrace Wisdom. Spiritual Maturity. Humility. is the first spiritual journal on intentional living in the Family on Purpose series, which spans the year Rachel and her family spent living out their family values. She wrote their process into twelve diaries that sat on her bookshelf for a couple of years before she realized they would be useful for other people. Values take intentional practice, and her family practiced for a year, and she had proof of their victories and failures. Because she knows the value of authenticity, Rachel knew she had to share what it’s like to live with kids and raise them God’s way and parent with love and compassion and, in every circumstances, teach them emotional intelligence. Part memoir, part diary, part spiritual devotional and part research collection, the Family on Purpose series will teach and guide and, most of all, encourage.

“Family on Purpose is the most vulnerable and honest preparation for parents-to-be. I’ve learned more from Rachel’s stories than from any other.”
-Wouter ter Keurs, parent & journalist

“As a mother, I appreciated reading about some of the feelings that Rachel had on some of the more frustrating days, because it makes me feel not alone. I also loved when she highlighted ways in which practicing their family values brought light to their lives. It has helped me look at situations in a different light with my own kids and what they might be thinking.”
-Sarah Drake, parent & artist

~New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
Shelley Shepard Gray

Can you love someone and still be free?

Emma Wyatt agrees to tutor a recently blinded, embittered soldier because of the $50,000 paycheck his brother offers. The job is an answer to many prayers. Blind herself, Emma dreams of independence and freedom away from her overprotective family. Tutoring Ian in all things “blind” isn’t easy, especially when the biggest challenge is helping him walk by faith.

Protect someone you cannot see?

Good soldiers show no weakness. Ian MacGregor holds his battle with claustrophobia close to his chest, unsuccessfully trying to cope on his own, too angry with God to seek comfort. Ian knows duty, honor, serving his country. So why is he being punished with this very personalized hell?

As Ian struggles to strong-arm his phobia and let go of his anger, his growing feelings for Emma are overshadowed by the danger lurking around them. Emma would be better off with someone else. Someone sighted.

Someone able to protect her from the person determined to keep them apart…

Lazarus Awakening: Finding Your Place in the Heart of God

Lazarus Awakening: Finding Your Place in the Heart of God

Joanna Weaver

You believe that God loves the world…
but sometimes you wonder if He truly loves you.

For many of us, moving the truth of God’s love from our heads to our hearts is a lifelong process. As we consider our inadequacies or grieve our shattered dreams, we find it difficult to believe that God cares for us personally.

In this life-giving book, Joanna Weaver shows you how to embrace the truth that Jesus loves you apart from anything you accomplish, apart from anything you bring. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unbound from the graveclothes of fear, regret, and self-condemnation.

Love is calling your name.

Combining unforgettable real-life illustrations with unexpected biblical insights, Joanna Weaver invites you to experience a spiritual resurrection that will forever change your understanding of what it means to be the one Jesus loves.

Includes 10-week Bible study (adaptable for 8 weeks) for both individual reflection and group discussion.

Transit: Taking You Closer To God

Transit: Taking You Closer To God

Shawn Johnson

Fifteen years ago, Shawn Johnson was a suicidal drug abuser working in Hollywood. He wondered if God could ever be a part of his broken life. To his surprise, finding God was not that difficult. But, growing closer to Him was another story.

Three weeks after giving his life to God, he relapsed, and almost over-dosed. He wanted to be closer to God, but he just had no idea how to get there. As a result, his faith eventually floundered. He didn’t know what steps he should be taking to move closer to God. Embracing spiritual disciplines such as prayer, Bible study, healthy relationships, sharing his testimony, serving, and giving was a foreign concept to him; and therefore, out of reach. Shawn’s hope is that Transit can keep people from losing faith in God today, the way he did then.

Today, Shawn is the lead pastor of Red Rocks Church in Golden, Colorado, one of the fastest growing churches in the country according to Leadership Network. At Red Rocks, he regularly encounters people who (like him) have had mountaintop experiences with God, but then crashed and burned because they had no idea how to move closer to Him. Time and time again, he has seen that his post-conversion experience is not an anomaly.

Shawn remembers what it was like to feel dazed and confused after a dramatic life transformation. He also knows how easy it is for long-time believers to fall into spiritual ruts where complacency, disillusionment, and frustration are the norm. In Transit, Shawn shares his personal journey in growing closer to God, uncovering disciplines that were critical to that journey, and invites each of us to ignite (or re-ignite) an authentic relationship with God, one that actually changes our lives today.

The World of Jesus: Making Sense of the People and Places of Jesus' Day

The World of Jesus: Making Sense of the People and Places of Jesus’ Day

Dr. William H. Marty

Know Jesus Better by Understanding What Shaped His World

Sometimes it’s hard to find your bearings in the New Testament, as you enter the time and place of Jesus and His disciples. There are confusing practices, new people groups, and even unexplained religious conflicts. How did it all come about?

Dr. William Marty walks you through the history leading up to the arrival of Jesus in order to help you better understand His life and teachings. He answers such questions as:

• Why did “Israelites” start being called “Jews”?

• What’s a “synagogue” and what happened to worshiping in the temple?

• Who were the Pharisees and why was Jesus so upset with them?

• Why didn’t anyone like the Samaritans?

Get to know the times in which Jesus lived, so you’ll better understand His teaching and ministry. And along the way, discover how God prepared the world for the One who would turn it upside down.

“Marty’s brief volume is a less-than-200-page survey of the history between the Testaments that helps set the stage for the entrance of Jesus Christ and the New Testament era. If one can keep up with the real-life cast of characters–mostly rulers and rebels–this book is a gem for the beginning student of biblical history and for the Bible study teacher investigating the backdrop of Jesus’ life and teaching.” –The Baptist Standard

Dug Down Deep: Unearthing What I Believe and Why It Matters

Dug Down Deep: Unearthing What I Believe and Why It Matters

Joshua Harris

What will you build your life on?

With startling transparency, Joshua Harris shares how we can rediscover the relevance and power of Christian truth. This is book shows a young man who rose quickly to success in the Christian evangelical world before he realized his spirituality lacked a foundation—it rested more on tradition and morality than on an informed knowledge of God.

For the indifferent or spiritually numb, Harris’s humorous and engaging reflections on Christian beliefs show that orthodoxy isn’t just for scholars—it is for anyone who longs to know the living Jesus Christ. As Harris writes, “I’ve come to learn that theology matters. It matters not because we want to impress people, but because what we know about God shapes the way we think and live. Theology matters because if we get it wrong then our whole life will be wrong.”

Whether you are just exploring Christianity or you are a veteran believer finding yourself overly familiar and cold-hearted, Dug Down Deep will help you rediscover the timeless truths of Scripture. As Harris challenges you to root your faith and feelings about God in the person, work, and words of Jesus, he answers questions such as:

• What is God like and how does he speak to me?
• What difference does it make that Jesus was both human and divine?
• How does Jesus’s death on the cross pay for my sins?
• Who is the Holy Spirit and how does he work in my life?

With grace and wisdom, Harris will inspire you to revel in the truth that has captured his own mind and heart. He will ask you to dig deep into a faith so solid you can build your life on it. He will point you to something to believe in again.

The Queen’s Handmaid

Tracy Higley

A jealous Egyptian queen. A lascivious Galilean governor. A beautiful servant girl.
Theirs is a story of prophecy, self-discovery, and revelation.

The year is 39 BC. All of Alexandria awaits the arrival of Herod, the Galilean governor with his eye on the Judean kingship. The handmaid of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, receives a troubling visit from her aging mentor.
An orphan since birth, Lydia lives in the palace at the demand of Cleopatra and her royal child, the son of Julius Caesar. But Lydia has a growing problem on her hands: her beauty is becoming a liability to the aging queen, and the visiting Herod’s undisguised interest
only makes matters worse.
When Lydia’s mentor is murdered, the handmaid inherits a daunting task. An ancient set of sealed scrolls, the secret writings of the prophet Daniel, must be returned to Jerusalem–before those who killed her mentor destroy the scrolls as well. The future of the Israelites
depends on it. So Lydia leaves the palace to serve as lady’s maid to Herod’s wife in the Holy City.
As Lydia is absorbed into the machinations of Herod’s household, her mission– and her people’s hope of a Messianic King–are endangered at every turn. Can Lydia avoid the adulterous intentions of Herod? Can she deliver the scrolls to the mysterious man on the steps of the Temple? Will the true King of Israel ever rise?
