Waiting Well with Jesus

‘Good grief does not just happen. Good grief is intentional.’

How can grief ever be ‘good’? This new devotional from Lyn Wake helps readers to use their tears to draw nearer to Jesus. After losing her beloved teenage daughter Bethany to brain cancer, Lyn cried out to God for help. As she accepted Jesus’ invitation to journey with him through the grief, she experienced how to wait well with him.

This devotional journal is the resource Lyn wished she had in her deepest grief. Each week has a different word to reflect on, along with personal stories, Bible references, journal reflections and a prayer, which gently help us to draw nearer to God who understands our pain.

In the midst of our heartbreak, Lyn tenderly reminds us of our breath-taking inheritance in Christ, discovering rich treasures along the way that can only be found through a costly veil of tears.

‘Rough Edges’ (Christians living abroad)

Written by Rhena Taylor
When people interact closely, cultures clash or traditions differ and sparks often fly. These powerful short stories plunge the reader into situations of excitement, conflict, tension and heartache, where the rough edges of human nature are exposed to view, but where God’s love is none the less at work.

The Finish Line

by Bob Creson

A family leaves home in Southern California and moves to the other side of the world. They discover the importance – and the power – of God’s Word in a person’s heart language.

In a village in Cameroon, a lake ‘erupts’ and people suffocate. One man from the Cung people group survives, believing God spared his life for a purpose.

The Hdi people live with the burden that love must be earned, until they find a word in their language that describes God’s unconditional love.

A Tennet man walks a thousand miles to make sure his people group gets a Bible they can understand.

Through stories, Bob Creson emphasises the need for Bible translation and the impact of the Bible translation movement in communities, providing stories of hope as we approach the finishing line of Bible translation – the day when every people group on earth will be able to access and engage with God’s eternal Word.

Slices of Life

Stories and Devotions from a Bible Translator
By Aretta Loving

“In some Slices of Life, we may feel more fear than peace, more worry than joy, but in every slice God remains faithful. It was God’s abundant provision that sustained Aretta Loving when she and her husband, Ed, answered God’s call to translate the New Testament into the language of a remote people in Papua New Guinea.

As the Lovings lived and raised their family among the Awas, they worked to find just the right words to bring the message of Christ straight to the hearts of this people precious to God. In turn, the language of a place where God wants us in his liver [loves us], where our words are on God’s ears [he hears our prayers], and where we carry on our shoulders [obey] God’s talk, brings us a fresh understanding of God’s character and the Christian walk.

Aretta’s experiences among the Awas as a missionary and mother are the basis for these insightful stories, essays, and meditations. Her down-to-earth devotions show us that in His perfect understanding of each of His children, God knows just how to speak the language of our hearts.”
