FREE Kindle Edition ~ '31 Keys to Possessing Your Promise'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

God had given a promise to Abraham that his descendants would possess a vast land (see Genesis 12). As time passed, it began to seem less possible for the descendants of Abraham to receive their promised inheritance. They spent years in slavery in Egypt until God raised up Moses as a deliverer. As they journeyed from their place of bondage to their land of inheritance, it was necessary for them to defeat the armies that inhabited the land they had been promised to be given as their possession.

In Joshua we read that the children of Israel defeated thirty-one kings and in order to inherit their promise. From the names of those cities we will consider our own keys to inheriting God’s promise. From the definition of these cities we will draw out a thirty-one key devotional journey to our inheritance. Some of the keys will involve what we must overcome or gain victory over; other keys will be principles or characteristics that are important for us to embrace. Together we can discover and use the keys, enabling us to possess our promised inheritance.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Healing for the Broken Hearted'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

It comforts me to know that Jesus promises us healing for the broken hearted. Even in the darkest of situations, there is hope.

I have walked through some dark days and difficult circumstances yet Christ has brought healing to my life. I have written this book to share with you the journey God has taken me on and some of the tools He used to bring healing and lasting freedom.

Isaiah 61:1 says, "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners."

And yet, your path to healing may not look exactly like mine. We are all uniquely created with different backgrounds and life circumstances. Therefore, I do not believe there is just one step-by-step system.

However, in this book, I am going to share with you practical steps you can apply to your life to receive healing emotionally and spiritually. Please do not feel like you need to do every single step that I share with you. Instead, I encourage you to pray and ask God for wisdom. Ask Him to show you which specific steps you should take on your path to healing, and then, take that first step.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." ~Lao-tzu

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Where is God When It Hurts?'

Friday, December 21, 2012


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

If there is a loving God, then why is it that ... ?

You've heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain.

Does God order our suffering? Does he decree an abusive childhood, orchestrate a jet crash, steer a tornado through a community? Or did he simply wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance?

In this Gold Medallion Award--winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain---physical, emotional, and spiritual---and helps us understand why we suffer.

Where Is God When It Hurts? will speak to those for whom life sometimes just doesn't make sense. And it will help equip anyone who wants to reach out to someone in pain but just doesn't know what to say.

Teach Me to Number My Days


Every hour of the clock has a message:

1st HOUR

Tells me I only live once, so I appreciate life and my time right here on earth.

2nd HOUR

I have two parents that I should honor and love and obey.

3rd HOUR

Reminds me of the Triune God whom I should love and serve with my whole heart.

4th HOUR

Reminds me of the four winds and wherever I may go the Lord's compass
 (The Bible) needs to guide me in the right direction.

5th HOUR

Indicates the 5 fingers on each hand that I have to work 
to earn my bread honestly and serve the Lord.

6th HOUR

Reminds me that God created everything in 6 days.

7th HOUR

Reminds me that after God created everything 
He took time to rest on the the seventh day.

8th HOUR

Reminds me of the 8 souls who took refuge in Noah's Ark 
during the flood and when that I take refuge 
in Jesus will save me and give me shelter.

9th HOUR

Reminds me of the 9 lepers who did not go back to thank Jesus 
for healing them and urges me to be remember to be grateful f
or all the good things I received from His hand.

10th HOUR

Reminds me of 10 Virgins of which five were not ready 
when the bridegroom came
 and warns me not to be so foolish as they were.

11th HOUR

Reminds me of so many people who try to leave it 
to the eleventh hour to repent 
but do not know when their time is 
and it always urges me to be ready to meet the Lord.

12th HOUR

Reminds me that the Bridegroom is coming back for us 
and that we need to be ready

Each tick of the clock 
and each beat of the heart 
provides an opportunity. 

Lets be faithful and use the time available to us 
to faithfully serve the Lord in all that we do!

Shared by The Soul Doctor on Facebook

Devotionals. Photo-quotes. Music. Uplifting Bible verses.

Fill This Empty Heart of Mine


My life is encroached by huge demands,
 so Lord I put myself into Your Hands.

Daily I come before Your throne 
to give to You this heart of stone.

Father, I pour out to You all the concerns and worries 
that I have stored within and Oh Lord, cleanse me of ever sin.

Now as I sit in this quiet place,
my heart is stilled before Your grace.

This empty heart You will refill
according to the Father's will.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'There's Hope for the Weary'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

There are times in our lives when we look around and wonder, “Am I the only one that is going through?” We feel like everything seems to be falling apart—our finances, our relationships, our children,our careers—nothing seems to be going right. Many times, it leaves us bitter, even to the point where we don’t feel like praying, because we are so broken and think that because God is so mad with us, what we have to say couldn’t possibly reach the courts of heaven. But God knows every situation. Believe it or not, He is concerned about our circumstances. He hurts when we hurt and is happy when we succeed.

Galatians 6:9, “And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

This is a 30 day testament to the love that God has for you. God promises to give you the desires of your heart as you delight in Him(Psalms 37:4). So let these affirmations of God’s promises resonate in your spirit and give you a renewed sense of love for your heavenly Father, for He certainly loves His own.
