This is Henri Nouwen's "secret journal." It was written during the most difficult period of his life, when he suddenly lost his self-esteem, his energy to live and work, his sense of being loved, even his hope in God. Although he experienced excruciating anguish and despair, he was still able to keep a journal in which he wrote a spiritual imperative to himself each day that emerged from his conversations with friends and supporters. For more than eight years, Henri Nouwen felt that what he wrote was too raw and private to share with others. Instead, he published The Return of the Prodigal Son, in which he expressed some of the insights gained during his mental and spiritual crisis. But then friends asked him, "Why keep your anguish hidden from the many people who have been nurtured by your writing? Wouldn't it be of consolation for many to know about the fierce inner battle that lies underneath so many of your spiritual insights?" For the countless men and women who have to live through the pain of broken relationships, or who suffer from the loss of a loved one, this book about the inner voice of love offers new courage, new hope, even new life.
How do you know true love? When does the spirit confirm the real ingredient of love? When it becomes a “knowing”. Many people say love is a feeling, but I am witnessing to all—LOVE IS A KNOWING. How? In the book of Deuteronomy, ...

It's time to start living the life God purposely created just for you! You were divinely created with natural characteristics, gifts, and summons from God which is the "inner voice" that lives in us. The obedience of the "inner voice" will make the difference between living a life of fulfillment, or being the victim of enslavement that will soon squeeze your soul to the limit of feeling no escape from the busy lifestyle of stress. How often do you feel your life has no direction, routine, unimportant, or trapped? The Inner Voice: God is Calling You gives guidance on how to escape this mentality. This book teaches you how to live a more simple and peaceful life. It helps give guidance about God's simple purpose for human creation. Many people believe that God only calls certain people to be disciples of his work, but God has a calling on any and everyone that wishes to accept His gift. Unfortunately, many will never witness their true purpose because they will never grow spiritually mature enough to hear God's call. If we are going to be all we are meant to be, this is where we must begin. Hear his call!

As Christians we believe that God speaks -- that God has spoken to people down through the centuries and still speaks to us today. But just how does God speak to us? Has his speech changed over time? And how do we bhearb the voice of God? In this insightful book Ben Campbell Johnson explores the subject of divine speech, highlighting its importance to faith and leading Christian believers into the practice of listening for Godbs voice in daily life. Johnson first explores the biblical foundations of divine communication, tracing the ways that God has spoken to humankind from the calling of Abraham, to the appearance of Jesus, to the continuing work of the Spirit in the early church. He then gleans important lessons about Godbs language from a wide range of Christian figures throughout history -- Polycarp, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Cvila, Henri Nouwen, and others. As this historical record shows, God communicates with us in a variety of ways. In exploring these different modes of bGodSpeech, b Johnson deftly guides readers into the practice of bintensive listening, b a way of posing issues to God and discerning his response. Numerous anecdotes illuminate Johnsonbs discussion, and each chapter ends with questions for reflection and discussion as well as suggestions for journaling. Johnson concludes the book by recounting a number of personal experiences that vividly illustrate the value of learning to listen to Godbs voice. At a time when many Christians hunger for a more personal, meaningful connection with God, this book shows readers how to discern divine language and forge a closer, richer relationship with bthe God who speaks.b

In examining Henri Nouwen's approach to the ministry of soul care and spiritual formation at close range, we can conclude that his holistic and integrative style is essentially drawn from his sophisticated understanding of the coinherence of spirituality with psychology, ministry, and theology. Henri Nouwen's ministry is characterized by a ministry of integration primarily because he, first of all, embodied a spirituality of integration. His ministry was but an overflow of his spirituality. Unquestionably, Nouwen ministered out of who he was as a person--a person of deep integrity. The author contends that Henri Nouwen's work of soul care and spiritual formation is never about techniques. Neither is it about programs and curricula--important as they are in ministry. More importantly, it is definitely not about "roles" even though multiple roles have been attached to his person. +

'We are the Beloved. We are intimately loved long before our parents, teachers, spouses, children and friends loved or wounded us. That's the truth of our lives. That's the truth I want you to claim for yourself. That's the truth spoken by the voice that says, "You are my Beloved."' - Henri Nouwen, Life of the Beloved Henri Nouwen, priest, professor and writer, devoted much of his later ministry to emphasising the singular concept of our identity as the Beloved of God. In an interview, he said that he believed the central moment in Jesus' public ministry to be his baptism in the Jordan, when Jesus heard the affirmation, 'You are my beloved son on whom my favour rests.' 'That is the core experience of Jesus,' Nouwen writes. 'He is reminded in a deep, deep way of who he is ... I think his whole life is continually claiming that identity in the midst of everything.' You Are Beloved is a daily devotional created from the very best of Nouwen's writings, paired with daily Scripture readings, that reveals our identity as children of God, and which encourages us to live out that truth in our daily lives. Nouwen is at once refreshingly accessible, unafraid to wrestle with challenging questions, and above all an encouraging and sympathetic voice along the way.

The Inner Voice of the Heart is a collection of poems written during late 2008 through mid-2012. Each of them resulted from personal thoughts and experiences and from reading Gods Word. Before writing down these words I processed them through my heart to be blessed by the Holy Spirit. Listening to the inner voice of the heart opens up the Truth of being. It takes practice, patience and faith to hear and understand as the Holy Spirit responds, conveys and directs the Truth through the magic of the heart. My hope is that each reader will use these poems as a guide and a catalyst to gain insight into the power and love of the Holy Spirit, who was sent as a Comforter by the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

Want to be a successful trader? It's not enough to master generic trading strategies: you must first know yourself. You must understand your own emotional predilections and psychological tendencies. You must learn how to match your strategies to your own personality. You must choose strategies that are sustainable over the long haul, that you can tolerate–and execute. Michael Martin's The Inner Voice of Trading explains why deep self-knowledge is so crucial to successful trading, helps you gain that self-knowledge, and guides you in applying it. Drawing on interviews and discussions with great traders like Michael Marcus and Ed Seykota, he shows how to quiet your mind, develop an "inner voice" you can rely on, and make it your most important trading ally.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth ... Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; for even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable. -Khalil Gibran Humanity continues to evolve. Today’s children have unique qualities that are helping the planet evolve spiritually by moving from the “old” energy of fear (greed, corruption, competition, and stress) into the “new” energy of love (integrity, manifestation, and cooperation). The New Children possess specific characteristics to help them fulfill their purpose to bring the planet into a space where Peace and Honesty reign, where Harmony between all living creatures is the norm, and where Cooperation is given and expected as we realize that we are all connected to each other by Love. Differing from previous generations, these New Children are becoming more and more connected to Divine; they remember our spiritual connection. Even though each child expresses this gift in a unique way, as a group they are a more intuitive, more telepathic, more sensitive generation. Twin Shining Lights is a beautiful narrative that introduces readers to this perspective on life—because story matters.
