Book Review: A Look at the Painful “But if not’s” of Life

Carol Kent’s new book, Unquenchable, takes a hard look at the fiery struggles and trauma in the lives of believers who have walked through the painful, “but if not’s” of life. With transparency and honesty she identifies with those who have faced crises of belief, sometimes questioning God’s actions and their own faith as a result of difficult, life-altering events.

25 Christmas Prayers– Day 5

December 5, 2013

Today is the fifth in a series of daily Christmas blogs: 25 Christmas Prayers celebrating the names of our precious Lord. I hope they will enrich your Christmas season and draw you closer to the One who is the true reason for Christmas.

http://www.rebeccabarlowjordan.com/25-christmas-prayers-day-5Day 5 – Immanuel – God with Us

Lord, how is it that a righteous God could be “with us?” We are sinful. You are holy. You are in heaven. We live on earth.

Yet the very essence of Christmas is rooted in an eternal, loving plan that brought You here to live in us, with us, and through us.

Because of Christmas, You are now “with us.” Long ago men housed Your “presence” in a tabernacle made by human hands with supernatural instructions. But Christmas ushered in Your presence here on earth, walking among us, living with us.

You no longer live in columns of clouds or pillars of fire. Read more
