Since the Friday post actually went out on Wednesday, to help us pray for each other as we face the holidays, I want to use this space for a special announcement.
Walk with Me, a grace devotional, has been published on Amazon!
30 daily readings to encourage you in your relationship with the Lord who loves you. These simple, but powerful, readings will reset your thinking about God. They will show you His love and your only responsibility: to accept and live in His love.
What a great way to begin the New Year! Many will want to read and re-read these devotionals to help find their way back to God again. Others will find them to be a quiet place of reassurance as the world spins crazily around them.
Until mid-January, you can buy the e-book for only $4.99 by clicking the link below (the price will go up around January 15). It has been published as a Kindle ebook, but those who don’t use Kindle readers can download the Kindle app for free to use on their PCs, Android, or Apple products. (If you cannot or don’t want to use Kindle, I will send you a PDF version for $10.)
The printed book is also available on Amazon for $16.59. That price is set according to Amazon’s minimum for printing because of the color photos throughout the book. It’s a little late to think of it as a Christmas gift, but the paperback is something you could give any time to someone who needs a kind word of faith.
You should know that I do not address narcissism in this book. Instead, the purpose is to build your identity and assurance in Christ, so that you are able to stand in Him against all opposition. Knowing who you are and how much He loves and accepts you gives you strength.
I have copied an excerpt below, and here are the links for purchasing:
“Take a walk with me. Let me show you a reality you may not have expected. Prepare yourself to experience something new, something that will lift your heart. Life is not barren or regimented, especially in relationship with the Lord. You know what your heart needs. You need a friend. You need someone who truly cares about you. Wouldn’t it be great to know someone who is good and right, but not uptight and judgmental? Someone who will understand you and your dreams and not put you down? You need to meet the real Jesus.
I want to show you a Jesus who laughs, who loves children, who wants you to succeed. This is the Jesus of the Bible. This is the Jesus who went to the cross with joy—because He knew it was the way to you. This is the Jesus who doesn’t think of sin when He sees you. God in human flesh, come to set His people free.
I want to teach you about grace. Not “book grace” or “theological grace,” but the grace found in a Person who can do anything and has done everything you and I will ever need. You see, I have come to understand that the love of God toward us is so great it could not be expressed strongly enough in words or ideas. The love of God became a Person. The deepest mystery of our faith is the amazing fact that the Lord God Almighty took on humanity and gave Himself for us. There is no story that touches the sensitive area of the heart like the true story of the love of God for us. Your heart needs a real connection with the real and living God. Jesus is God’s grace for your heart!” (Excerpt from pp.3-4 of Walk with Me by David Orrison)
