At some point in every woman's life, a feeling of abandonment causes deep-rooted pain and insecurity. Maybe you've experienced a father leaving your family, or a husband who walked out on you. No matter the extremity, God cares for you and wants you to feel completely satisfied as his precious child. It's okay to have heartache over the people in this world who have misused your trust; this fallen world has its fair share of bruises to the heart. But God has a comfort like nothing else on earth, and this booklet will guide you through the steps to feel complete peace once again. Michelle Moore tells her story of having been abandoned by her mother when she was young. Her mother changed her identity and disappeared for nearly 18 years. To make things worse, her parents had divorced, and her father had remarried and didn't want her to live with him. "Just how awful am I?" she asked, "That not even my own parents want me?" Michelle's life was marked by sadness, fear, and pain. But God had a bigger plan for her − and for all those who suffer rejection and hurt. Abandonment to Forgiveness includes a Bible study by Paige Henderson that highlights God's loving promises to all who suffer from fear and insecurity. She reminds us of the story of Joseph, who suffered abandonment and betrayal, and went on to forgive and find strength. In the last section, licensed counselor Sharon Kay Ball, walks you the steps of grief and rebuilding your life through practical advice and biblical counsel. Abandonment to Forgiveness will bring you hope and wholeness. It will speak to your heart and will strengthen your faith. It includes questions and Scripture passages − along with space to journal.

Heated words, cool malice, deadly feuds, the furious rush of adrenaline-anger is clearly the most destructive of the seven deadly sins. It can ruin families, wreck one's health, destroy peace of mind and, at its worst, lead to murder, genocide, and war. In Anger, Robert A. F. Thurman, best-selling author and one of America's leading authorities on Buddhism and Eastern philosophy, offers an illuminating look at this deadliest of sins. In the West, Thurman points out, anger is seen as an inevitable part of life, an evil to be borne, not overcome. There is the tradition of the wrathful God, of Jesus driving the money-changers from the temple. If God can be angry, how can men rid themselves of this destructive emotion? Thurman shows that Eastern philosophy sees anger differently. Certainly, it is a dreadful evil, one of the "three poisons" that underlie all human suffering. But Buddhism teaches that anger can be overcome. Indeed, the defeat of anger is not only possible, but also the only thing worth doing in a lifetime. Thurman shows how to recognize the destructiveness of anger and understand its workings, and how we can go from being a slave to anger to becoming "a knight of patience." We discover finally that when this deadliest emotion is transmuted by wisdom, it can become the most powerful force in freeing us from human suffering. Drawing on the time-tested wisdom of Buddhism, Robert A. F. Thurman ranges from the individual struggle with anger to global crises spurred by dogmatic ideologies, religious fanaticism, and racial prejudice. He offers a path of calm understanding in a time of terrorism and war.

Where’s My Miracle? What to do when God doesn’t heal you Nothing can describe the horror of hearing doctors say, "You will never walk or use your hands again.” Or — "You have cancer. I’m afraid it’s terminal.” Like many people, you look to the Lord and pray for healing. You have friends and the pastor pray for you, but nothing happens. You read Scripture and claim the promises. You even have someone anoint you with oil or go to a healing crusade. But God doesn’t give you your miracle. You confess every possible sin and search your heart for any unconfessed sin. Your faith is strong and you tell everyone you will be healed, yet nothing seems to happen. You feel that God is playing a cruel joke or start to blame yourself for a lack of faith. And that’s a shame when Christians feel that way... The truth is that God certainly can heal and sometimes does heal people in a miraculous way. But the Bible does not teach that he will always heal those who come to him in faith. The big question is: What does the Bible REALLY teach about healing? The key is to understand God’s ultimate goal for your life. You need to— •Find joy in knowing God’s priorities for your life. •Know the comfort of the biblical promises. •Enthusiastically embrace God’s will for your life. You can find the joy of serving God despite unanswered prayer in this ebook. In just 30 minutes or less, you will unlock the door to a new attitude toward life.

She has lived 45 years in a wheelchair and she has experienced her share of ups and downs. "But,” she says, "oh, the difference the grace of God has made in my life.” Let Joni tell you her secrets to peace and joy, despite her wheelchair. She has spent decades studying the Word of God. She knows that God does not enjoy seeing your pain and frustration. He has compassion for you and gives you many ways to deal with life so that you can have peace. She has taken her most important insights on turning unanswered prayer into a life of joy (not anxiety) and has encapsulated them into this ebook. Whether you or a loved one is suffering. This ebook will bring you some help to break free from the strangle hold of fear and worry when God doesn’t seem to answer. In this ebook, you will find hope. Joni tells her story of facing the news of being paralyzed the rest of her life. Joni shows you the right way and the wrong way of coming to the Lord for healing. She tells how she dealt with unanswered prayer and passes her tips onto others. You can find freedom from wondering if God is rejecting you. Joni has been there and she shows you the way to peace and joy using biblical principles. About the Author Joni Eareckson Tada offers hope to people struggling with health and emotional challenges.

Joni discusses several claims that people make that she believes are not biblical. Do you agree? Look at the verses on page 6. These appear to be absolute promises, but are they? What do you believe about these verses and why? Why is it important to pray, "If it be thy will”? •Read panels 8-9. How could it be God’s will to deny a Christian’s request for healing? What good can come out of suffering emotionally and/or physically? What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name? What do we learn about becoming more like Christ? •Read panels 10-11. What are God’s true priorities? What, in your opinion, is true wholeness? •Read panels 12-13. What will happen at the end of the age? Joni says, "I have discovered that there are more important things in life than walking.” What would you say is the most important thing God is doing through your life?
