Standing on the border of a promise, the ancient Israelites savored every word of the spies who witnessed the wonders of the Promised Land. But between their dream and reality were giant inhabitants. "We felt like grasshoppers next to them, and that's what we looked like to them!" The grasshoppers had spoken, and the people were faced with a choice: run with the grasshoppers or trust the promise of God. Each of us face intimidating giants. Our problems have different names, but they are enormous in our eyes. And in their menacing shadows we are grasshoppers. If it was simply a matter of our size or ability, we would lose every time. But God is always bigger.Running with the Grasshoppers is a collection of inspirational devotionals that bring encouragement by focusing on the power of faith through a fresh and insightful look at some familiar (and not so familiar) people from the Bible. How often do we read well-known Bible stories and forget that they were people just like us? They were ordinary people with an extraordinary God. God has provided us with a record of these fellow grasshoppers as examples for our inspiration and encouragement. Through our knowledge of these random expressions of faith we can find the encouragement to help us and others persevere in troubled times.R. Mark Webb is an author who lives in Florida with his wife, Wendy. They are proud parents of two amazing daughters and great son-in-laws. Mark describes his passion for writing as a "fire in my bones that cannot be contained" and has had many opportunities to use his love for word crafting to communicate the truth and encouragement found in God's Word.

'Most of the serious thinking I have done over the past twenty years has been done while running.' Mark Rowlands has run for most of his life. He has also been a professional philosopher. And for him the two - running and philosophising - are inextricably connected. In Running with the Pack he tells us about the most significant runs of his life: from the entire day he spent running as a boy in Wales, to the runs along French beaches and up Irish mountains with his beloved wolf Brenin, and through Florida swamps more recently with his dog Nina. Woven throughout the book are profound meditations on mortality, middle age and the meaning of life. This is a highly original and moving book that will make the philosophically inclined want to run, and those who love running become intoxicated by philosophical ideas.

When life races with chaos and uncertainty, run beyond your fear with bold faith. Humanly speaking, we are no match for a horse's strength or speed. But “the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah,” and the prophet was able to outrun Ahab's royal chariot on the long streak from Mount Carmel to Jezreel (1 Kings 18). In the same way, personal relationship with Almighty God inspires and empowers us to accomplish great exploits we never thought possible and, like Elijah, to deliver something of prophetic value to the culture and the world. Running with Horses is a volume of daily writings exhorting every individual this way—to expect impossible outcomes, even supernatural interventions. Inspired this way, when the pace speeds up in the sphere to which you are called, you run ahead of anything believed possible. Like all of creation, you were born with a specific design and purpose. Yours, I am convinced, is for this no-holds-barred day, for this prophetic time. Whether days of peace or trouble, you were born for this time.

George Sheehan, a celebrated running writer, philosopher, and physician, once wrote, The more I run, the more certain I am that I am heading for my real goal: to become the person I am. Today, many runners?whether they are training for the Olympics or whether they fit runs into their lunch hours?would agree that for them the sport is much more than a way to stay in shape. Their running defines who they are and leads them to achieve goals that they might never have thought possible. This tremendous collection of wisdom captures the spirit and passion of those who run in over 3,000 entries, covering topics such as training, gear, running philosophy, and running in youth and old age. The Gigantic Book of Running Wisdom will inspire everyone from seasoned marathoners to running novices.

Learn to live with God instead of for God. In this candid and achingly authentic book, Fil Anderson shares the healing insights that restored his spiritual compass and guided him back to God--the God who specializes in filling empty souls. Fil Anderson had accomplished more for God than most of his contemporaries, but his worn-out body housed an empty soul. His frenetic pace of ministry had earned him just one thing: greater pressure to do even more. He had fallen for the soul-killing lie that doing more for God would give his life meaning. Then the godly admonition of a spiritual director set this burned-out believer on a life-saving spiritual path. Sometimes the only way to get a new life is by running your old one completely into the ground. This powerful story of a reawakened soul can be the story of every person who has pursued spiritual productivity over intimacy with God and come up empty. It’s the story of reclaiming your soul and finding a home in the center of God’s relentless love. It’s the journey from self-importance to God-importance. “To the harried and the unharried, I pray that this book will minister to your heart in the profound way that it has blessed mine.” —Brennan Manning

Encouraged by Eckhart Tolle, Awake Joy is a unique and comprehensive guide to awakening and enlightenment. It points to the radiant joy that is beyond the thinking mind, the separate sense of self, its idea of separation and identification with form. Katie Davis takes the mind-identified reader through their personal growth strategies to awakening. She then deepens to Self-discovery or what we might call the realization of the Heart. The book then shifts to conscious living by embracing humanity's diversity and the earth as none other than the Essence. The journey requires presence, not practices, although the book offers experiments and meditations to free the ego. This book is designed to be your companion throughout your life's journey to true and lasting fulfillment. It will be a trusted resource again and again. This A-Z handbook stands free of concepts and points pragmatically for those who are ready to surrender suffering for themselves, their families, the schools and the world

The Joy Of Doing Things Badly

ISBN : 9780767923903
Genre : Self-Help
File Size : 67.10 MB

In a society that puts so much emphasis on perfection, Veronica Chambers mischievously casts aside the guilt-inducing litany of “shoulda, coulda, woulda” that seems to define modern-day life and replaces it with a resounding call to live with “foolish bravery.” Refreshingly open about the personal failures and limitations that once weighed her down with shame, Chambers describes how she turned her less-than-perfect qualities into sources of delight and satisfaction. From belting out off-key renditions of torch songs while washing the dishes to seeing even the most unlikely career opportunity as a chance to spread one’s wings, Chambers shows that a willingness to fall flat on one’s face heightens the joys of everyday life and opens a new, wonderfully liberating perspective on work, motherhood, aging, friendship, failure, and success. With a winning combination of lighthearted anecdotes and heartfelt musings, Chambers encourages readers to follow her example and do the things that tickle their fancies and fire their imaginations—no matter what other people (and that little voice inside) may say. Like Chambers herself, they’ll discover that “what we consider our failures have a surprising ability to charm . . . we are loved for our imperfections—for our funny faces and walks and dances and songs.”
