Journaling Gratitude

Finding God in Ordinary Days

Journaling Gratitude front cover -vf.png
The Word of God commands us to give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His mercies endure forever (Psalm 103, 107, 136). It also asks us to give thanks to God in all things because this is His will concerning us (1 Thessalonians 5:18). We know to seek for God in the big and miraculous moments of our lives and then miss Him in the seemingly mundane. Journaling Gratitude: Finding God in Ordinary Days reminds the reader to seek God with the assurance that you will find Him, active, involved, and present in all your affairs. This book is a glimpse into Chinwe’s life through the pages of her journal, and captures the everyday, grace-filled moments that we might easily overlook in our lives or as we study the Word of God. Each section concludes with blank writing space for you to reflect on what you have read and what you are grateful for.

Spiritual Rest Stops Along Life's Journey

by Chinwe Okpalaoka
Have you ever seen one of those time-lapse videos that show, in accelerated motion, what every day occurrences might look like if sped up? Do you ever feel that your life is like one of those videos, moving at the speed of lightning? Do you sometimes feel like you are on a conveyor belt that never stops as day fades into night and into day again? Well, you are not alone. You are also not alone in wanting to get off the hamster wheel and take a breather. If you want to go the long haul, you need to take breaks to refocus and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. Times of Refreshing: Spiritual Rest Stops Along Life’s Journey is a compilation of refreshing reminders to stop and rest in God’s Word throughout our day. Each piece, titled as a rest stop or quick stop, invites you to pause, as you would for respite on a long journey.

Before the Throne of Grace: Pressing Into His Presence
31 Days of Daily Reflections

by Chinwe Okpalaoka
Before the Throne of Grace: Pressing into His Presence began as a small idea in 2002. I added to it, off and on, through the years as other responsibilities took priority. During those years of working, studying and raising kids, I learned to assume the posture described in the title ─ the heart posture with which I approach God and the study of His Word. Devotionals encourage the discipline of regular Bible reading and reflection and I hope that this one offers the same experience to the reader. I have included opportunities for reflection at the end of each day. I hope you pause for a moment to meditate on what you have read. The Holy Spirit is your teacher and He will reveal the enduring truth of God’s Word as you earnestly seek Him.
