Soul's Gate by James L Rubart - Review

What if you could travel inside another person's soul... To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds. To help set them free. To step boldly into their divinely designed future. Thirty years ago that's exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his future. Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world... if Reece will face his deepest regret and teach them what he has learned. This book is intense! I was hooked from the start. Of course it is only fiction, Yes, and some of it, is a little "far-fetched", but very catchy. Do we tap into our power through Jesus as much as we are able? The author certainly gives the reader much to think about. This book made an impression on me, as I too, like the characters in the book have lived a life of regrets, feelings of worthlessness, and other e

Receiving God's Love

By Sheri Rose Shepherd Bestselling Author and Bible Life Coach learn more ▶ Think how powerful it would be if we spoke the truth about how God feels about us at least as often as we silently said negative things about ourselves or replayed in our minds all the hurtful things that have been said about us. The truth is, we are not what others say about us, and if the men we love speak hurtful words to us that make us feel unworthy, we don’t need to repeat them any longer. Instead we can learn to rest in God's unchanging love for us. Even if no one has ever said anything kind to you, your Prince Jesus longs for you to breathe in the tender love, compassion, and kindness He feels for you. If you're ready to have Jesus, the lover of your soul, become reality to you, I invite you to do the following . . . Breathe In His Love . . . For the Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. (Job 33:4) You know that feeling of exhilaration that stic

Feeling Unworthy of Love

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (Ephesians 3:19) By Sheri Rose Shepherd Bestselling Author and Bible Life Coach learn more ▶ There is a battle within most women's hearts to believe they are worthy of love. If we believe the lie that we do not deserve love and are hiding behind feelings of unworthiness, even the most loving man in the world will not be able to break down the wall around our hearts. Can you imagine if every night when you went to tuck your children into bed they refused to let you hug them or express your love because they did not feel they deserved it? As a parent, you would embrace them every time you could to prove to them they were indeed worthy of your love. If they refused to receive it because of how they felt, it would break your heart. I believe that is how our heavenly Father feels when we refuse to let

Do Teen Girls BELIEVE They Are UNIQUE?

" Your body is an instrument. No, It's not a flute or a guitar (I hope). It is a sacred and original design by a mater craftsman with a specific plan and purpose." In this post I am giving my opinion of the book first! Because, I LOVE this book! I received it from Zondervan  to review with intentions of giving it to my daughter for Christmas. I am having a VERY hard time waiting...  Maybe, I just click with this author somehow, but this book just cracks me up, and yet it has so many important issues women- single grown, married, teens, or other... deal with. I HIGHLY recommend it. In this book Annie Downs, single for now, tackles important parts of our bodies and how to please God with them. But she doesn't just stick to the mundane like our eyes, ears, mouth etc... She covers things like our knees and our shoulders?? She has a very fun sense of humor with a godly twist. And I have caught myself laughing so many times throughout this book. It's like she i
