After Thought

This passage means that God calls everyone and gives them the power to respond. However, to be chosen, we must respond to the call. So, when God calls, choose to be chosen, even if it makes you the black sheep in the family.

Acceptance

Experiencing the Father's Embrace by Jack Frost

Experiencing the Father’s Embrace
by Jack Frost

Are you beaten down and feeling totally isolated,alone, rejected or unworthy? Throughout life we all receive either blessings or cursings from parents or authority figures that forever live in our memory. These experiences tend to define how we look at ourselves and walk through life; looking up with hope or down with despair. What most of us don’t know or fully embrace is that our heavenly Father loves us so much more than any human can or will and He deeply desires to heal our brokenness and replace our thoughts of rejection with His thoughts of perfection. In this book, Experiencing the Fathers Embrace: Finding Acceptance in the Arms of the Loving God, Jack Frost shares how God revealed a depth of His love that completely changed the way Jack functioned in both his family and in his ministry. This hard-nosed commercial fishing boat captain became a warm, tender-hearted father and husband. He and Trisha founded Shiloh Place Ministries with a vision to see the world experience the Father’s healing love through the hearts of its leaders.

Fear

Fearless by Max Lucado

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
by Max Lucado

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?

Rejection

You can be free from the effects of rejection! No one totally escapes rejection. But not everybody has to be damaged by it! Our Father has provided a means for us as His children to be delivered from the painful consequences of rejection.
