Read full description of the books:Ohhhh this book was so perfectly wonderful. Instead of talking about it, I'll just put a few quotes that spoke to my heart:
When we come to the end of ourselves and stand on the brink of God’s unlimited, unconditional love, we find that we have a greater appreciation for all of God’s gifts to us. Our hearts are renewed with thanksgiving and an awareness of God’s goodness extended to us…
Songs take on a new meaning; our singing takes on a new life. Our interest in life is rekindled. We feel freer to express ourselves creatively. We are more willing to take risks in communicating with others and in being vulnerable emotionally. The hardest parts of our souls break up so that we are quicker to laugh with gusto and cry with tenderness. We have a new ability to have fun—good, clean, pure fun.
When we feel assured of God’s presence with us, we are secure. There’s no greater security. God reveals Himself to us as our all-sufficiency, our total provision, our ultimate protection. That releases us from fear, pressure, and worry. It produces in us an abiding peace that cannot be described and an unspeakable joy that fills our hearts to overflowing, regardless of circumstances.
Read information about the authorDr. Charles F. Stanley is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Atlanta, founder of In Touch Ministries, and a New York Times best-selling author who has written more than fifty books, and has sold more than nine million copies. He demonstrates a keen awareness of people's needs and provides Christ-centered, biblically-based principles for everyday life.
Charles Frazier Stanley was born September 25, 1932, in the small town of Dry Fork, Virginia. The only child of Charley and Rebecca Stanley, Charles came into the world during a time when the entire nation felt the grip of the Great Depression. To make matters worse, just nine months later, his father Charley died at the young age of 29.
However, Charles refused to let the Great Depression or the difficulties of his life define him. Instead, like his father and grandfather before him, he clung to God’s Word and took up the mantle to preach the gospel to whoever would listen.
Dr. Stanley’s motivation is best represented by the truth found in Acts 20:24, “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love.” This is because, as he says, “It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people’s lives.”
Dr. Stanley’s teachings can be heard weekly at First Baptist Church Atlanta, daily on “In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley” radio and television broadcasts on more than 2,800 stations around the world, on the Internet at intouch.org, through the In Touch Messenger, and in the monthly, award-winning In Touch magazine.
