Download and read online Never Settle for Normal in PDF and EPUB We’re All Glory-Chasers and Pleasure-Seekers Every human wants to matter and be happy, which is as it should be. God made us to resemble and reflect His worth as we enjoy our true identity in Him. But we too often swap that calling for the trifles of this world, pursuing cheap substitutes to fill the craving of our souls. As Jonathan Parnell puts it, we settle for “stupid normal” over the transcendent, even though this world can never satisfy our hopes and dreams. In Never Settle for Normal Jonathan speaks to the heart of both skeptics and searchers by addressing their deepest longings. With insight and passion, he examines the key tenets of Christian faith—creation, fall, redemption, new creation—and reveals the life-changing glory of the Christian story in a fresh, new light. Discover the personal meaning and gladness you hunger for… and Never Settle for Normal!
Download and read online Waiting on God in PDF and EPUB We have all experienced a disconnect between God's promises to us and our everyday reality. We wait, without understanding why. We want to know God's plan so that we can trust it--but God so often hides his plan so that we will trust him. What can we do in the meantime as we are waiting for an answer, a change, or a miracle? With deep compassion, Wayne Stiles helps readers understand why God makes them wait. Unpacking the Old Testament story of Joseph, Stiles shows readers how to find comfort and opportunity in the time between God's promises and his answers, revealing the perspective-altering truth that sometimes when we think we are waiting on God, he is actually waiting on us. Anyone who has felt a disconnect between God's promises and their reality, who doesn't know what God wants them to do next, or who struggles with the brokenness of their world will find in Wayne Stiles a wise and trustworthy guide to finding peace in the pauses.

Download and read online I Don t Wait Anymore in PDF and EPUB In I Don't Wait Anymore, Grace Thornton challenges readers to find their calling and purpose from God and go after it with completely committed hearts--even if life isn't at all what they expected. Grace's writing focuses on defining herself as a child of God, not just by her marital status (or lack thereof). She grew up expecting to go to college, get married, have babies, and live out her life in one place, but that's not what God ended up calling her to. She still longs for a husband and children, but she has come to understand that God's plan is different for each of us and doesn't always take into account what we want, but rather what He needs for us. So she doesn't wait anymore or make plans based on her desires. Instead, she listens to God and follows His plan. Grace is a single woman in her early 30s with no children, and her professional career has taken her to strange and amazing places to spread God's Word and has opened her eyes to all she would have missed if she kept waiting. Many books on singleness focus on remaining pure and resisting temptation while waiting for your spouse. Grace takes that as a given and, instead, focuses on living for God joyfully regardless of whether or not she ever finds a spouse. This positive and encouraging gift book offers inspiration to young women and men who want to live a fulfilling life physically, emotionally, and spiritually, regardless of whether or not marriage or kids is in God's plan for them. Beyond simply dealing with singleness, Grace deals with identity, desperation, loneliness, frustration, and finding hope in darkness.

He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.
