Bestselling author Rebecca Barlow Jordan encourages readers to embrace a more inti-mate, fruitful relationship with God with 40 days of inspiring devotions. Many Christians don't know what it means to truly experience God's grace. They don't know how to open their hands, their eyes, or their hearts to his affection. In 40 DAYS IN GOD'S BLESSING, Rebecca Barlow Jordan invites readers to walk in the shadows of saints gone before to trace the footprints of God's faithfulness in the lives of other believers. Through these moving stories, readers are brought face-to-face with the God who loves them more than they can imagine. Jordan inspires readers to seek out the God who wants to give them immeasurable grace. In just 40 days, readers will realize the blessings waiting especially for them. Rebecca Barlow Jordan was coauthor of Courage for the Chicken-Hearted (Honor, 1998), a CBA bestseller, and its fol-low-up, Eggstra Courage for the Chicken-Hearted (Honor, 1999). Guideposts also distributed these books, publishing almost 120,000 copies combined. Jordan's work has appeared in Family Circle, Focus on the Family, Home Life, Discipleship Journal, and Marriage Partnership. She has appeared on the At Home Live televi-sion program (Family Net) and on numerous radio sta-tions across the country. 40 DAYS IN GOD'S BLESSING is the follow-up com-panion to 40 Days in God's Presence, which releases in January 2006. Both devotionals explore the benefits of a full relationship with God.

Carol Kent has lived every parent's nightmare. After her only son was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, Carol's life took a permanent detour. She and her husband, Gene, have been adjusting ever since, moving to Florida to be near the prison, starting a new ministry for prison inmates and their families, and sharing the faithfulness of God with anyone who will listen. A New Kind of Normal begins with the story of that horrible night when Carol and Gene learned their son had been arrested, but it doesn't end there. In fact, Carol knows what it means to live with an unthinkable circumstance that will never change-and to still make hope-filled choices. Through the eight chapters in this book, Carol will use their own story, the story of Mary mother of Jesus, and stories of women who have experienced their own "new normal" to share how God has led them to choose life, gratitude, vulnerability, involvement, forgiveness, trust, and action.

Translated from back of book in original language (Korean): We Must Receive The Blessing Of Feeling The Love Of The Cross As We Look At The Bible Again! As time goes by, churches of this era are becoming secularized and the heart that is towards God is becoming more distant. Having flowed in worldliness, people’s hearts cannot be supplied with God’s love so they are becoming drier and drier. Spiritual hardship has come in search and the spirits in humans are undergoing anguish. When some problem in life comes, we rely on ourselves more than God and try to resolve it according to worldly methods. However, through the problems of our flesh and daily living, God is trying to expand His kingdom. If God tells someone to offer a 40-days resolution worship, He has a plan and will. He wants to receive spiritual worship from that person’s spirit. Through that time period, we must receive the blessing of feeling the love of the cross as we look at the Bible again. We must find again the love that was lost in Eden.

The 40 Day ChallengeWeb Excerpt: Introduction to this Book: You may ask why I chose the topic, A 40 day Challenge. Why did you not select a devotional book on the traditional 365 day scale? Or you may ask why not, a 2 week trial or a 30 day trial.why 40 days? The bible is full of examples of 40 days as anointed time with God. Lets take a look at some of these examples. To start with I am going to list for you all of the examples of 40 days, 40 weeks, 40 months and 40 years that I could find in the bible. Then I will explain to you why the Lord made 40 days so important to me. 40 days: 1) Ezekiel fasted for 40 days. The Lord told him to lie on his left side 1 day for each year that the children of Israel had sinned against the Lord. 2) Jesus fasted 40 days in the wilderness and was tempted of Satan prior to starting his ministry 3) It rained upon the earth 40 days when Noah and his family went into the Ark. 4) The Egyptians embalmed Joseph and the people mourned 40 days as per their custom for him. 5) Moses in Exodus went up on the mount and was before the Lord 40 days and the Lord gave him the laws and commandments. 6) The 12 spies checked out the land for 40 days then brought Moses their report. 7) Moses went back upon the mount for another 40 days of prayer and fasting in Deut. 8) Goliath presented himself morning & evening for 40 days before the children of Israel tempting them to send a man to fight him. 9) In I Kings the prophet rose, eat and drank and went 40 days on the strength of that meal unto Horeb the Mount of God. 10) Ezekiel lay for 40 days on his left side as penance for the 40 years of iniquity of the children of Israel. 11) Jonah preached, Yet 40 days and I will destroy this city, saith the Lord. 12) Jesus was on earth 40 days after his resurrection from the dead before he ascended to heaven. 40 weeks: 1) The normal delivery time of a baby. The mother carries the baby an average of 36-40 weeks. That is 9 months give or take two weeks as most doctors figure it. 2) 40 weeks stood for new life, new birth in the Old Testament 3) Old Testament Prophecy refers to 40 weeks. This is future translated into generations. 40 months: 1) Each time that the Lord send a word of warning to the children of Israel to clean up their ways, turn from their idols and return to Bethel, he gave them 40 months of words from the prophets and challenges to change, then when they did not turn their hearts toward God, he sent them into captivity. 2) 40 months is the probationary period of God. 40 years: 1) Moses was 40 years old when he killed the Egyptian and fled to the wilderness. 2) Moses remained for 40 years in the wilderness before he returned to Egypt to lead the children of Israel out of bondage. He was 80 years old. 3) The children of Israel wondered around in the wilderness, then came to Jordan and refused to cross over. Their faith was weak. God sent them back into the wilderness to ramble some more. For a total of 40 years they wandered in the wilderness. Then God took Moses on his 120 birthday. Because their faith was so weakthey were sent back out to wander another 40 years and that generation was not allowed to see the promise land. 4) After wandering around for a 40 year period in the wilderness, then Joshua led the Children of Israel across Jordan and took Jericho. 5) Isaac was 40 years old when he took Rebekah to wife 6) Esau was 40 years old when he took the Hittite to wife 7) Joshua was 40 years old when Moses assigned him to go into Jericho as a spy 8) 40 years later, Joshua led the children of Israel into Jericho 9) In Judges the land had rest 40 years 10) Also in Judges the land was in quite for 40 years---peace. 11) When the children of Israel did not obey God in Judges, he delivered them up to the Philistines control for 40 years 12) Samuel judged Israel forty years 13) Sauls son was 40 years old when he be

In July 1998, GOD approached a man, to assist GOD and channel his will into the written word. This book is the result of that conversation. GOD is responsible for the flow, topics and discussions. The man simply wrote what GOD spoke and what thoughts he received. "GOD is speaking - Are you listening? My Story" is GOD'S full disclosure to his human family, including his laws of Life and Death. He speaks to Steve as a friend. That is, a friend of GOD'S, chosen by GOD. The fact that anyone would be allowed to hear his voice is astonishing. In this day and age of miracles, is it so far fetched not to believe? He speaks to Steve of his world...Heaven. He speaks of his Love for his human family. GOD tells it like he sees it. No soft touch, no political correctness, just the plain truth, GOD'S Truth. July 5th 1998 4:00 P.M. I AM the GOD of ALL. The reason for this writing is that the stories I AM about to unfold to you, through my friend Steve, are stories to teach, inspire and to create hope. Hope, in that when you greet me in my Heavenly Kingdom, you will have a better understanding, appreciation and moral imperatives, necessary to the alleviation of your guilt. I AM in the world as a spirit of Love, hope, divine inspiration and most of all understanding. I have tried to conquer you, and your fears, by sending messengers to your world, Moses, Abraham, Isaac and Jesus the Christ. I have been alive 50 million of your Earth years and the stories I AM about to tell you are just one of many, told countless times in my Kingdom.

Russ Masterson had read and heard about purpose, but didn’t have a clue what his own purpose was to be. And there was emptiness where there should have been value. “I had a college degree, and soon a seminary degree to accompany it, yet I didn’t know where to go or what to do.” As he puts it, “I kept hoping a step would arrive when it was time to lift my foot.” Disillusioned with his life, as well as with God, he heard this advice: fast from food for 40 days. Faithless and frazzled, Russ accepted the challenge, hoping for direction, reflecting on the past, and wrestling with issues like purpose, faith, and love. In this book, readers will find a fresh literary voice—an insightful thinker who meets people in their humanity while helping them to see they can be rescued from it. The journey of these forty days without food will help you explore what really matters in life.

Developing a Grateful Heart... a Splendid Goal! There are times in life when our hearts overflow with gratitude-at the birth of a child, when we receive a word of encouragement from an old friend, while watching a beautiful sunset, or even an illness that challenges us. Each one is a gift in its own way if we take time to see it. But can we express deep gratitude ? Not just on special occasions or no Thanksgiving and Christmas. "It's possible." claims author Karen O'Connor. "With this deeper sense of gratitude, we can enjoy richer, more fulfilling lives and be a blessing to others at the same time." For forty days, the reader will come to experience God's gifts more fully and find inexpressible joy of his faithfulness and love. Be amazed at the many blessings received: * rekindling joy * restoring humility * repairing broken relationships * releasing past hurts
