Download and read online The Storm Is Over Now in PDF and EPUB Affected by addictions? Who does not know someone suffering from addiction or someone suffering from the effects of a loved one's addiction or someone who is well into a life restored from the destruction of addiction only to find other avenues of escape? Living in an age that encourages the forgetting of our tender innocence, born from the perfect design and purpose of our Creator, forgetting who we were created to be. Attempting to silence the voice of one's spirit to avoid the discovery of one's life purpose, then it is easy to fall prey to the seduction of the world of addiction. Many times we leave behind who we think we are, who we think we are supposed to be to better fit the ideas of those we love, many times painfully forgetting our unique gifts and talents for fear of rejection or failure. Some of us have tried to mold not only our lives, but others too as we drag them along, trying to fit into ideas that are not true to our purpose, leading a life of false identity instead of true destiny. Remembering Who We Are: a workbook based on an adaptation of AA's 12 steps is an experience, a process toward creating an environment for healing and restoration. Carol has brought together, not only her experience using the tools outlined, but suggestions from countless others who have used this guide to bring to you the best tools for 'working' the 12 steps of recovery. She has guided countless others desiring a life restored, a soul recovered, through this process and she has included in the last chapter a simple outline and guide for those desiring to use this process within a small group setting. This workbook is a manageable and practical guide for persons affected by addictions and this too is an entry into a more disciplined spiritual life, a step by step journey to uncover forgotten dreams and purpose for living. Offering loving guidance, creative tools and gentle honesty Carol guides you on a personal and intimate journey, applying the tools outlined, toward healing, discovery and restoration of a soul lost or forgotten. You will find the loving power and presence of God, as you understand God, a lasting and intimate relationship you can rely upon. Using mind mapping, visioning, letter writing for amends and other powerful tools form a solid foundation for you to be restored to the harmonious living of your human and divine nature. Being armed with no more than simple courage, willingness and honesty, those who dare to seek will uncover a life filled with purpose and wonder. Climbing out of the abyss and destruction brought on by dysfunctional behavior, false beliefs and addiction is difficult at best. Women and men as well as young teens find themselves inside the rooms of various 12 step programs, either as family members, a loved one or as the identified addict. Attempts to recover one's soul, while at the same time fighting emotions of anger, resentment and despair mixed with self-righteousness, it is easy to see why it appears as though accepting a life of mere abstinence is the easier, softer way. To accept a life of u

Download and read online Blessings In The Storm in PDF and EPUB Samuel Wesley Gathing: A Closer Look is the moving true story of Sam and Beatrice Gathing and the struggles they faced rearing their fourteen children during the era of the Jim Crow laws. These laws meant that both society and the system enforced the damaging view that their children were just stupid black kids. In this climate of institutionalized discrimination, Sam had to maneuver his way through a massive minefield of irrational hatred intended to destroy him and his family. Sam and Beatrice began their life together in December, 1929, in Desoto County, Mississippi, taking the gift of a mule named Rock and a big red cow to start their farm. Over the years, as their family expanded, so did the land that they farmed. Sam learned to live by the rules of the day but was always a true leader to both his family and to his friends. Through all of the challenges that Sam encountered, his faith in God never wavered—he believed that the truth could be found in God’s words and actions, not in the laws that were meant to harm him and his people.

Download and read online Praise Dancing in the Rain in the Midst of My Life s Storm in PDF and EPUB Book Description Praise Dancing In The Rain In The Midst Of My Life’s Storm, (Little Things Makes A Big Difference) is intended to be an easy and gentle read, yet strongly effective. To you that read my book, I resign my liberty and I tell you my secrets. I will share with you the little things in my life that made a big difference. I am sharing my secrets with you and it is my sincere hope that you will tell someone. There have always been a certain feeling of power attached to the keeping of my secrets along with reciprocal bonds between my secrecy and emotions. Keeping my secrets made me an individual and now telling my secrets voluntarily forges a link with others and helps me become a better person. What you are about to read are secrets that I have jotted down in a journal, on sticky note or just carried around in my heart and head. My secret speaks of my hopes, dreams, love, gratitude and great passion for life. I share the stories of my life’s storms, my abilities over my disabilities, victory over defeat, advantages over disadvantages, and my desire to live a well live life over an unlived death. I am truly grateful and blessed from all the small things that made the big difference in my life. It is the experiences and learned lessons from the small things that I have learned how to praise dance in the rain until I can soar above my life’s storms. The little things are enormously significant. Each time I experience something I write it down in my journal and I ask myself two questions; What have I learned from it, and how can I use what I have learned to immediately improve my life? The content of this book is also the result of a quickening, energy and desire that translated from my heart through my head and now into this book. It offers inspiration, as well as spiritual, emotional and personal empowerment. It speaks of daily occurrences in my life, real life situations with others, humor and scriptures. This book imparts a message that Life is full of ups and downs, trail and tribulations, and challenges and struggles, which are called the storms of life. These storms presents opportunities, new levels of growth, new possibilities, wisdom, inner strength as well as an invitation for lips and heart to sing, arms to be spread as wings for soaring and feet to dance a graceful dance throughout the storm with the part of life that is stronger than the problem being faced. Every storm has a season and can be a result of God’s divine will as well as his permissive will. The storms in our lives provides the environment in which God reveals himself and where He wants us to learn to trust Him by taking Him at His Word. God does not always send the storm; however he will allows us to go through them for growth. He wants us to dance in the rain and soar above our storms as eagles. The Bible declares in Isaiah 40:31: “But they that “wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”(KJV). The eagle has long been a symbol of strength, power and majesty, they face storms fearlessly. They are of the few birds that do not fear or attempt to escape the storm. They simply use the storm to lift them higher, they adjust their wings feathers for maximum altitude and they are able to fly high above the storm. The eagle’s eyes are protected by a clear membrane that protects their vision, which allows them to see clearly as they fly at high speed and when they are in a storm. That is exactly what God wants our experiences in the storm to be. God wants us to learn to face storms with vision instead of emotion. He wants us to keep a clear vision and maintain the right perspective in our storms by letting our problems and challenges cause us to rise higher and higher. God wants us to envision victory over our storms. Eagles are constantly cleaning their feathers, pulling out any that are ruffled or damage

Download and read online Storms and Faith in PDF and EPUB After Algene Yeatman started this book she realized her life had some serious times and serious issues. Being the daughter of a preacher she saw her childhood and youth in a family with God and church as a full time influence, the first thread during her life. The second thread was a constant hearing of theology from many great preachers. The third dominating thread was the gift of musical talent, a music degree, and working as church organist (sometimes also as director) for most of her life; The fourth thread was working with her husband in the business of renovation, renting and selling real estate. Algene feels greatly blessed beyond anything she imagined. She is surprised that she unlocked her heart so deeply to her experiences.

The boat, at full speed, left the mouth of Cam Ranh Bay, heading east into the unknown waters of the high seas. It was 2:00 a.m. on October 12, 1979. Here and there hundreds of tiny lights of night fishing boats danced and twinkled in the morning hours. How many of them, I wondered, are patrol boats? After multiple trips to Communist prison camps, Lien Le knew that only death awaited him. He soon began plotting his and his family's escape from Vietnam, working out intricate details in the secrecy of the night. Even after several failed attempts and years of planning, his faith remained, giving him the determination and the hope to press on.

His gifted storytelling, filled with detailed description, gives readers a firsthand glimpse of the prison camps, perilous escape attempts, overcrowded boats, typhoon-plagued passages, and beyond, leaving them with a newfound sense of appreciation and wonder for life, liberty, and the ever-present spirit which stills the storms.
