These daily devotionals welcome you into the lovings arms of the Father. In 365 days worth of readings, Mike Shea of Serenity Village, offers words of courage and wisdom to strengthen you as you continue along the path of recovery. This edition features a debossed hardcover binding, with color printing throughout, and a ribbon bookmark.
God wants to take us on a pilgrimage to a place where hopelessness is replaced by hope, and death is traded for life. In this 365 day devotional, we read how words spoken from respect and wisdom, darkness is exchanged for God's light, depression is substituted for action and service, and addiction is swapped for recovery. We climb into Jesus' lap to find rest and peace simply because we can.
The meditations are our story. An imperfect journey, by imperfect people, into the loving arms of the Father. We have been saved by the blood of Jesus and encouraged by the Holy Spirit to continue the recovery journey on his way, not ours. Serenity is possible, because all things are possible for those who believe in Christ Jesus.
In recovery himself, and part of a faith-based recovery ministry, Serenity Village, for 10 years, Mike Shea has written in these pages essential, yet practical, tools for those who are sick of being sick, and tired of living beneath what God has for them. His love for his wife, Peggy, and their eight adult children, and eleven grandchildren come second only to his love for God. His hearts desire is that this devotional journal will be your doorway to knowing you can never do anything to get God to love you more, or less. His love is unconditional. Mike lives in Minnesota and commutes each week to Minneapolis to be a part of Serenity Village Recovery and Serenity Village Church.
