Unshaken: Standing Strong in Uncertain Times

newcover.jpgA brief glance at the headlines on any given day is enough to make someone unsettled, anxious or down right scared. Horrific acts of terrorism, destruction wrought by natural disaster, economic volatility in world markets are just a few of the signs for many of an impending apocalyptic meltdown.

“As I speak with people around the world, I see more and more believers paralyzed by fear and shrouded in a cocoon of passivity because of the unrelenting turbulence and uncertainty in the world and their private lives,” states Jeanne Nigro, author of Unshaken: Standing Strong in Uncertain Times (Destiny Image – October 2016).

Instead of focusing on the doom and gloom of the usual end-time fare or attempting to navigate the milieu of theological positions on the subject, Jeanne offers a lifeline, an anchor to the soul of the disrupted and disturbed.

Even if we lay aside the idea of a global Armageddon for a moment and simply take a look behind the door of the average American home, it won’t be surprising to find a microcosmic battle being waged that is equally destabilizing. On a nightly basis, evening television chips away at the moral values that once served as a sure foundation for a great nation. Mom & Dad are stretched to the max trying to juggle responsibilities at work and home. Tensions are high as well as their debt. Many are living life on the edge and know that it could all come tumbling down with the slightest of unexpected and unplanned intrusions into their fragile world.

With an unwavering belief that personal intimacy with God is our only sure refuge and source of strength, Nigro provides not only encouragement for the battered soul but practical steps for individuals to deepen their relationship with God in the midst of uncertainty.

Jeanne brings her insight into the importance of understanding the biblical feasts, the Millennium, and the Millennial Temple and what they reveal to us about God and how that understanding deepens our intimacy with Him and prepares us for the days ahead.

Unshaken will lead the reader beyond mere survival and guide them to the very heart of God, calming the storm and securing the soul of the believer to live confidently in any and every uncertainty.

Day 23: another baby is B O R N

Unto us, in the midst of

chaos

war

fear

death

bombs

rockets

inflation

unemployment

a child is born, bliss to a thankful mom.

Baby Joan Leia was born, 2320gr. with a passion to move.

I am reminded of a prayer a friend once told me, “May life birth from unexpected dead places. May our wounds turn into wombs.”

Day 9: Q U I T T I N G

Have you ever wanted to throw in the towel and yell, “I quit?!” I’m so thankful I did.

Here’s why…

…quitting saved my life.

Quitting taught me loyalty to the right things.
The problem was me-or rather inside me, monumental problems living in reaction.

Quitting felt worse than death but I was already dying. What happens if I gain everything but loose my soul? I decided to die to things that don’t bring life, let go. Sadness sobered my joy but courage helped me face the fear of sadness, not replace it. I’m done with blame games, chronic complaints, illusions of helplessness, victimizing myself in the assault of controllable circumstances. I realized what Dr. Seuss was telling me all along, “no one is youer than you,” and after I quit, I’ve never felt more myself.

I’m so thankful i Q U I T !
