Hearing God's Voice
Feelings 101: Pain to peace, 2nd edition
As the title suggests, when our trials start we usually are alerted to it by the painful feeling(s) that come up - from the slightly uncomfortable to the completely awful! This book is about how to experience the truths of verses like...
When trials arise, its hard to feel the peace of Christ. We don't have a heart full of thanks (not that we aren't thankful for Christ and God's love). Truth is, the overwhelming feelings are more like this...
When we think about growth in passing, we might associate it more with growing bigger or maybe growing deeper. This discipleship book points out that when it comes to spiritual growth - we're talking about change. Becoming more Christ-like - even through the very trials that are often so uncomfortable and undesired. That is a challenge. But, in Christ, the various painful emotions we feel can be transformed into peace even before the trial itself comes to an end.
This is possible when one applies the Bible's 7 principles pertaining to trials and transformation. These principles are about growing in and connecting in your relationship with Christ!
This book is designed as a self-paced course to walk you through learning all of this in very practical ways. It is literally life-changing because it focuses specifically on being discipled and being "who you are in Christ." Tap into that and the action to take in a trial becomes clear, the heart shifts to amazing peace, and a deep thankfulness to Christ comes alive! When you experience this, you have experienced God's discipleship beyond the basics.
This book is not one of those "quick read" books. It is highly focused. You'll need to be willing to look at yourself with the Lord. And, it promises huge growth (change) in you should you take this one on. Here's more...
- It is about practical application to your life
- Will challenge and guide you in introspection and self-examination before Christ (1 Corinthians 11:28; 2 Corinthians 13:5)
- Shows you the biblical relationship between self-examination and discerning God's guidance in a trial
- Lays out the Bible's 7 principles for hearing God's voice with your heart

That looks like an intense course! Maybe I'll get it, but first tell me about :-) ...
