DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Rebuilding Trust: 21 Day Devotional Journal (Healing Trauma Series) by Tami Rene’ Demers
I am pleased to introduce all of you to the book of the day, Rebuilding Trust: 21 Day Devotional Journal (Healing Trauma Series) by Tami Rene’ Demers I feel that it is very appropriate as we head into the holiday season -- a time meant to be with family. Sometimes that is difficult because of past trauma and healing that must take place. I pray that this book brings you peace and healing.
Forward by Dee Bryant of WomanYouAreLoved.com:This is TRULY a powerful devotional! It's so filled with the Truth of God's Word and open enough to leave room for the healing power of the Holy Spirit to give you a refreshed hope in God's goodwill for your life! I truly appreciate God leading Tami to pen such a dynamic correlation of suffering and trust. It's not always easy to see how disappointments, setbacks, offenses, and trauma can easily, and often insidiously, cause our outlook and expectations of God to become skewed and off-center.This 21-day devotional is meant to take you deeper into the Heart of God to re-establish trust where variations of life’s traumas and trials have brought doubt. I have not added commentaries except personalized prayers so the focus is on His Scriptures and Him speaking to you personally through them. For the Lord Jesus Christ came and died for us all to be healed in our spirits, souls, and bodies. One of the biggest areas that are affected by trauma is in the area of trust. It affects our minds and emotions. Trauma erodes our trust and perspectives of our Father in Heaven, others and ourselves. He is truly the only Trustworthy One and our relationship with Him is what brings us an understanding of our true identity and healing transformation. This devotional is designed to get you to that place of hearing His voice in the Scriptures and in that still small whisper and of how much He loves you and how touched He is by your pain and infirmities. He so desperately wants you to be restored to Him fully and walk in wholeness. This is to help on your journey to go deeper with God and restoration in your true identity. Why journal and Dialogue with God?
1. To be saturated in prayer through the Bible and quiet time listening to His response to you (Psalm 119:15)
2. Offer your faith-filled petitions by being specific in your needs (Psalm 20:5)
3. Tell Him every detail of your life & sit quietly to receive His tender words of mercy, love, kindness, insight, and wisdom for your life. (Hebrews 4:16)
4. Learn to get deeper revelation and understanding from the Scriptures of who He really is as He speaks to you through them and you learn to apply the Word to your life. (James 1:22)
“Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.
So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.
