We all suffer from a deficit. Somewhere in our lives we have felt the pain of rejection, a pain that doesn’t go away easily. It is kept alive by ongoing difficulties we have in relationships with others. Yet we were made to love and be loved, and there is a deep instinctual longing in the human heart for love, acceptance, and worth. In her book Something Beautiful: Learning to Live Loved, author Jill Bradshaw shares her journey to find love in her life. Bradshaw uses her personal story to show how we struggle in a world that seems to be getting harder, colder, and more self-oriented. We harden our hearts to protect them, but in doing so we shut others out. But as you’ll see, there is hope. You will learn about a Christianity that goes deeper than theological knowledge, belief systems, and organised religion. Discover the One who longs for a close relationship with you, the God who longs to transform each life he touches into something beautiful and meaningful. Something Beautiful: Learning to Live Loved shows that whatever your experience of God—there is more. You are worthy of love, and he will help you find it.

Know Love Live Loved

WE ALL WANT TO BE LOVED Let s pause for a minute and answer this question: What is love? Some call it a feeling, an emotion, and even a choice. Others call it romantic, selfish, or temporary. Some claim it to be spiritual, selfless, and permanent. And then consider how you feel love? That is even more open for personal interpretation. It might be a friendly glance or a hug. It might be a piece of candy or cup of water. It might be a kiss or beautiful sunrise. It might even be the slobbering affection of a pet or the scribbled I love you note from a child. However you define love and however you feel loved, there is one truth that we all hold in common: we all long to be loved. We want to be loved. We need to be loved. Something within us cries out to be loved. So, whatever shape it comes in, we want it. Why is that the case? Why do we need love? It is within us to be loved, like God created us to need love, and without it, a part of us is empty. It is time to know that you are loved it is time to be free. LIVING FREE What happens to those who are free? What do they do? Quite simply, they love. It s natural. It flows out of them like a spring of water that bubbles from the ground. What s more, the love cannot be stopped Those who live free will in turn love God, love themselves, and love others. What does that entail? What does that mean? The answer to that is your journey of life. It is what you get to do as you live free. It is your destiny. It all begins when you accept that you are loved."

Using the Lord's Prayer as a floor plan, Max Lucado takes you on a tour of the home God intended for you. Warm your heart by the fire in the living room. Nourish your spirit in the kitchen. Seek fellowship in the family room. Step into the hallway and find forgiveness. It's the perfect home for you. After all, it was created with you in mind.

Lara Jeans Liebesleben verlief bisher eher unauffällig. Nicht, dass es ihr an Herz oder Fantasie mangelte. Im Gegenteil, Liebeskummer hatte sie schon oft, und unsterblich verliebt war sie auch schon. Einmal sogar in den Freund ihrer großen Schwester. Klar, dass sie das keinem anvertrauen kann. Außer ihrer Hutschachtel. Denn um sich ihrer Gefühle klar zu werden, schreibt Lara Jean jedes Mal einen Abschieds-Liebesbrief, in dem sie so richtig ihr Herz ausschüttet, und legt ihn dort hinein. Diese fünf Briefe sind ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem auf mysteriöse Weise jeder Brief seinen Empfänger erreicht und Lara Jeans rein imaginäres Liebesleben völlig außer Kontrolle gerät ...

Here are attempts at human connection, both depraved and sublime, and the grinding struggle to survive against the crushing realities of the Soviet system: in Among Friends, a doting mother commits an atrocious act against her beloved son in an attempt to secure his future; The Time: Night examines the suicide of the great Russian poetess Anna Andreevna with heartbreaking clarity; while in Chocolates with Liqueur the struggle for ownership of an apartment between a nurse and a madman turns murderous. With the satirical eye of Cindy Sherman, the psychological perceptiveness of Dostoevsky, and the bleak absurdities of Beckett, Petrushevskaya blends macabre spectacle with transformative moments of grace and shows just why she is Russia's preeminent contemporary fiction writer.

The Gospel is the good news that God is not found far off in the distance, but that God is Emmanuel, OGod with usO. It is the unveiling of the image and likeness of our Maker still beautifully intact in every one of us including the broken, the poor, and forgotten. It is the truth that we all belong and are each the dwelling place of the Divine. Living Loved is a letter written to all those who yearn for more than religious or OrightO living, but who desire to live loved and in rhythm with the melody of Love; which beautifully flows and sustains all of creation. We are meant to live not just ObelievingO that God loveOs us, but daily experiencing the width, length, depth and height of that love. May the words in this book lead you to a greater awareness of the God that is with you, for you, and whose love for you never waivers.

This manuscript that you are reading is not a book in the traditional sense of the word. It is rather a compilation of thoughts and experiences I have had and various treatises that I have felt compelled to write over the last few years. It is because of my desire to share these observations that I have decided to put them together. They all served to codify my thoughts and feelings and convey what I personally believe in areas of health of body, mind and spirit. Because some of these articles were written at different times, you may find certain truths repeated from time to time. Please forgive this and edit them out; it is my feeling that they serve to reinforce that which has helped me to arrive happily at three score and ten. I still refer back to this book as a resource and find its validity for me to be sustaining. If it helps you to have at least one happier day, it will have fulfilled its purpose.

Learning to Live in the Father's Affection

So many Christians believe God's love is fickle: when they sin, He turns away in disgust and anger. They vacillate between "He loves me" and "He loves me not" because of their behavior. That reasoning, writes Wayne Jacobsen, is as flawed as pulling petals from a daisy. Rather God's love is sturdy, enduring, and undisturbed by people's failings because God loves humankind not for what they do--but who they are. They are God's beloved creation. Startlingly honest and empathetically written, HE LOVES ME! reveals the facts of God's relentless grace. Readers will learn how to live consciously, confidently in this love all the time. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion help make these truths practical and life-changing. Insecure Christians ready for a revolutionary relationship with God will find out just how accessible that is.

If you had one hour to live and could make just one phone call, who would you call? What would you say? Why are you waiting? Richard Carlson's sudden, tragic death in December 2006 left his millions of fans reeling, but even their many letters, calls, and emails couldn't erase the loss felt by his wife Kristine. To try and come to terms with her loss, she pored over 25 years of love letters, reliving the memories and cherishing her late husband's memory. But one letter stood out. Richard had written to his wife on their 18th wedding anniversary and attempted to answer the question: if you had one hour to live, what would you do, who would you call, and what would you say? AN HOUR TO LOVE is a profoundly moving book that shows the importance of treasuring each day as the incredible gift it is.
