A single mom. An economic crash. Corrupt political leaders. Desperate times. Sound familiar? Almost 3,000 years ago, a ragged preacher from Israel visited a small village in what is now the country of Lebanon. A famine had ravaged the region, but the preacher—a man of God named ELIJAH—asked a starving widow for food. This audacious request was the beginning of a dramatic story that would save her—and her young son. It’s a story that still speaks to us all these centuries later. Wall Street Journal best-selling author David R. Stokes shares what that single mom learned back then—the principles of something called FLOUR POWER. Following the Lord won’t make you rich, but you will have a better life than if you keep trying to figure it all out without Him. In fact, FLOUR POWER is available to us today!
These words have provided comfort and strength for more than 3,000 years: "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever." - Psalm 23:1-6
In "The Simple Life," pastor and best-selling author David R. Stokes, explores these ancient words that are ever new.
In his famous poem, "IF", Rudyard Kipling extolled the virtue of knowing how to "keep your head when all about you are losing theirs--and blaming it on you." This book is for people who want to be like that. The principles shared are derived from the writings of Simon Peter, an early follower of Jesus Christ.
Jesus saw Simon's potential from the beginning. That's why he gave him such an ironic nickname--ROCK (Peter). Simon was anything but "solid" for quite awhile. But God knew what he would become. And when Simon Peter was much older, it fell to him to comfort and calm thousands of Christians who lived in fear of harassment, persecution, and even death.
The affirmation "Keep Calm and Carry On" originated in a morale campaign in Great Britain in the build up to World War Two. These days, however, the phrase has become part of popular culture. This book describes ancient concepts that are ever new. Practical, in-depth, and thoroughly biblical, "How to Keep Calm and Carry On" will challenge your mind and comfort your heart.
