Youre Going To Make It
In You’re Going to Make It: 50 Morning and Evening Devotions to Unrush Your Mind, Uncomplicate Your Heart, and Experience Healing Today, New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst helps you incorporate a new rhythm for those days when life feels too hard. The daily practice of receiving and releasing–receiving God’s encouragement, instruction, and truth to start your day and releasing to God all that’s weighing you down at the end of each day–sets you on a path toward healing.
With 50 days of morning and evening devotions and beautiful color photography of significant locations where Lysa has worked through her own healing, You’re Going to Make It will help you stay connected to God and continue loving others even in the middle of discouraging, disappointing, or even devastating circumstances. Each devotion contains:
*a Bible verse to start your day
*a statement of truth to remember throughout your day
*space to write and release something back to God at the end of your day
*a prayer to receive before you go to sleep to better prepare for tomorrow
Without these crucial components woven into the routine of our harder seasons, connecting with the Lord can very quickly begin to feel overwhelming and like just another item on our to-do lists. Lysa understands this struggle and wants to create a sacred space where women can bookend their days with God by simply showing up, soaking in truth, and being reminded they’re not alone on their healing journey.
In her gentle, unassuming way, Lysa walks you through the pages of You’re Going to Make It, where you will:
*receive the biblical truth and encouragement you need when hurtful situations leave you worn out and unmotivated to spend time with God.
*escape the loneliness of trying to heal on your own with trusted wisdom from a Bible teacher and friend who understands your pain and wants to help you move forward.
*be reassured that though this difficult season is part of your story, it will not be your whole story.
This difficult season doesn’t have to be a time of numbing the pain or going through the motions. Let this devotional help you get intentional and know that, though this may be a hard time, it can also be a holy time.

Ragman : And Other Cries Of Faith (Expanded)$12.99Add to cart
First published in 1984, and now newly revised and expanded, Ragman and Other Cries of Faith helped to establish Wangerin’s reputation as one of the most cutting-edge Christian writers on the market. It presents thirty-four interlocking “stories” in a variety of styles, ranging from gently reflective to incantatory. Together they embody a “story theology” that explores in fresh, powerful ways the meaning of faith, the persons of Christ, the community of faith, and the individual servant of faith. This collection interweaves short fiction, biblical stories, parables, autobiographical essays, prayers, meditations, poetry, drama, fable, and legend. The opening chapter, “Ragman” (still one of Wangerin’s most quoted writings), is a moving parable about Jesus encountered in a most unexpected place—as a rag seller on the streets of a modern city. For this new edition, the author has provided eleven new pieces, making this an all-new, updated definitive edition.

“He who introduces into public office the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world.” -Ronald Reagan, 1967, quoting Benjamin Franklin Long before George W. Bush’s efforts to bring faith-based initiatives-and the identification of evil in the world-to the modern presidency, Ronald Reagan was using his own brand of Christianity to influence the course of world events in a conscious and consistent manner. In this bestselling, definitive spiritual biography of our fortieth president, God and Ronald Reagan, politician historian Paul Kengor presents a meticulously researched, fascinating account of Reagan’s life as seen through the lens of his relationship to God, and traces this relationship to its culmination: America’s battle against the atheistic Soviet Union. An intensely private man, Reagan kept his personal religious beliefs relatively quiet over the years. But as Kengor shows, Reagan’s own words demonstrate that his religious orientation was shaped in his childhood-and was retained with extraordinary consistency throughout his life. Schooled as a young man in the simple religious ideas of his Protestant mother, Reagan embraced Christianity with the fervor of a lonely boy who had found his first friend. Reagan’s earthly father was a distant man who drank heavily and offered little in the way of comfort, so Reagan turned toward a heavenly father, a dependent and accessible God. Eventually, Kengor argues, Reagan’s religious framework became a presidential one-and one that ran head-on into an anti-religious war in Moscow. Nothing more strongly clashed with Reagan’s belief system than Soviet communism; he saw the victims of Soviet oppression as weary soldiers in the great struggle for faith in the 20th century. To Reagan, the United States was a divinely ordained beacon of freedom-a Shining City on a Hill-and as Kengor conclusively demonstrates, it was this conviction that compelled him to a series of challenges that would eventually bring down Communism once and for all. Blending groundbreaking research and fascinating storytelling, God and Ronald Reagan, has forever changed our understanding of one of our most influential presidents.
