21 days of grace
Discouraged?  Need Rescue?  21 Days of Grace!
Encouragement in 21 Days of Grace, offers rich truth within fiction, to encourage our hearts. An exciting journey takes us into the lives of characters in their adventure as they encounter God’s amazing love.
In a beautiful vineyard, in the Georgia Mountains, a woman desperate for peace seeks forgiveness. In Kenya, a little boy finds joy in the face of a mysterious stranger who draws him unto God. And with a small gesture a young girl achieves something great for a man unconscious in a hospital, a man she secretly loves. These are just some of the twenty-one stories that reveal God’s amazing grace, forgiving heart and constant unconditional love, all in 21 Days of Grace.
Why is encouragement so important? The promise from Colossians is that encouragement helps us to know Christ.
And in Proverbs 16:24, “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”  
Encouragement brings healing!
So what is your need today? Encouragement?  In Colossians 2:2, the apostle Paul shows his concern for believers, revealing his desire that they may be encouraged. “My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ.” (NIV)                 
My desire and prayer is that you may experience His encouragement and healing power through these stories and then share their messages with others. 21 Days of Grace is a book designed for soul searching studies and wonderful discussions.
Feel free to let me know which story you read that touched your heart the most. What blessings and messages the Lord had for you through the readings? That will very much encourage me.
