You are the Beloved

By Henri J. M. Nouwen
Authors:
Henri J. M. Nouwen
'We are the Beloved. We are intimately loved long before our parents, teachers, spouses, children and friends loved or wounded us. That's the truth of our lives. That's the truth I want you to claim for yourself. That's the truth spoken by the voice that says, "You are my Beloved."' - Henri Nouwen, Life of the Beloved Henri Nouwen, priest, professor and writer, devoted much of his later ministry to emphasising the singular concept of our identity as the Beloved of God. In an interview, he said that he believed the central moment in Jesus' public ministry to be his baptism in the Jordan, when Jesus heard the affirmation, 'You are my beloved son on whom my favour rests.' 'That is the core experience of Jesus,' Nouwen writes. 'He is reminded in a deep, deep way of who he is ... I think his whole life is continually claiming that identity in the midst of everything.'You Are Beloved is a daily devotional created from the very best of Nouwen's writings, paired with daily Scripture readings, that reveals our identity as children of God, and which encourages us to live out that truth in our daily lives. Nouwen is at once refreshingly accessible, unafraid to wrestle with challenging questions, and above all an encouraging and sympathetic voice along the way.

You Can Begin Again

By Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer
It's never too late for grace. Look closely enough and you'll see that theme all through the Bible. Page after page, story after story - God delights in turning tragic endings into new beginnings. The barren give birth, doubters become deliverers, and harlots are recast as heroes. In every biblical fresh start, we are reminded that with God, new beginnings aren't the exception; they're the rule.Using a blend of inspiring stories, Scriptural principles, and straight-talk, in You Can Begin Again, Joyce Meyer powerfully demonstrates that God isn't done with you yet. If you're stuck in a rut, disappointed by an outcome, hurting from a wound, failing in an endeavour, struggling in a relationship, or unsure about the future . . . don't give up. Don't give up on yourself, and don't give up on the God who loves you. If you thought it was too late, it's not. With God you can begin again.

By R.T. Kendall

R.T. Kendall
'I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.' (Matthew 12:36) R. T.

Controlling the tongue - having the wisdom to know what to say and when to say it - is one of the toughest biblical commandments we face. We often fail to realise the power of the spoken word, and our careless talk can sometimes be more damaging than we realise. But in this unique book R. T. demonstrates that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, the challenge is not beyond us. Learning to control the tongue will not only make you faithful to God's call but will also strengthen your character, making you more like Jesus.
