Words of Assurance from the Bible to Calm Your Fears
Author: Canadian Bible Society
Publisher: Canadian Bible Society
There are days when our world feels increasingly dangerous – and small! Even those who have not witnessed acts of terrorism or violence first hand, or who have not lived through a dramatic natural disaster and its consequences, are made aware of the tragic cost and painful aftermath through the ever present media. These experiences have a profound effect on each one of us, often bringing feelings of fear, anxiety, helplessness or abandonment. Trained caregivers tell us that these emotions, accompanied by some very physical symptoms – recurring nightmares, panic attacks, difficulty in concentrating, nervousness at sudden noises, difficulty in establishing relationships and hypervigilance (a heightened sense of awareness) – can be indications of post traumatic stress disorder. If this is what you are living, you should take comfort in the fact that these are very normal reactions and that your struggles are real. Taking the brave step of seeking support from a trained counsellor, and perhaps a few close friends, will in turn help you to be a solace to loved ones who may also be suffering with you. In the midst of your fears, you also need to know that God is with you – comforting and strengthening you, and assuring you with words that are repeated frequently throughout the Bible: “Don’t be afraid!” This Scripture booklet contains a selection of some of the best loved words of comfort and assurance from the Bible that we pray will remind you about the love of a God who promises never to let go or abandon you.
Wenn du jemanden getötet hättest, wüsstest du das ... Oder? Ein Mann wacht am Strand der kleinen schottischen Insel Harris auf, ohne zu wissen, wer er ist. Er trägt eine Schwimmweste und ist vollkommen durchnässt. Von den Inselbewohnern erfährt er, dass er offenbar Neal Maclean heißt und ein Buch über drei Leuchtturmwärter schreibt, die im Jahr 1900 von einer benachbarten Inselgruppe verschwanden. Auf der Suche nach seiner Erinnerung landet Neal schließlich genau dort, auf den unbewohnten Flannan Isles, wo er eine schockierende Entdeckung macht: In der verlassenen Insel-Kapelle liegt ein Mann mit eingeschlagenem Schädel. Und alles deutet daraufhin, dass Neal ihn getötet hat ... Ein atmosphärisch eindringlicher Krimi von Bestsellerautor Peter May
Bare feet keep you safe is a sensuous uncanny journey twisting back and forth... blue boat drifting on the water, the river in flood, the churning water through the factory turbines; Bluebeard's locked rooms, ... these symbolic images will stay with you. In Bare feet keep you safe the central characters are the girl and the river, though her best friend and her lovers accompany her at times on the journey, and the river is lost and found again. Fairytale, fantasy, memoire, journal, poem; Bare feet keep you safe is about the internal isolation of growing up a woman, (Simone de Beauvoir: 'you are not born a woman, you become one'), and the work of an artist and poet to become La femme intégrale (Nicole Brossard). The book explores childhood in the 50's; teenager, young lesbian and then wife in the 60's, becoming a feminist and a lesbian in the 70's, and a lesbian mother in the 80's. Bare feet keep you safe evokes the grass in the park, and the river bed weeds, where the child walks with barefoot freedom. This is a rich tale for the present, for the third wave of feminism, opening out the struggle women have been through to knit their many selves together and reach the present... With her, the reader becomes she, her, you and I. A book to meander in, savour words and thoughts. If you have enjoyed Dorothy Richardson's Pilgrimage, or Jenny Erpenbeck's Visitation, this will be a book for you. 'trust me water and light trust me touch and sensation know it is exactly this..

At the heart of every crime, there's a family… My son is a murderer…. So begins this chilling and emotionally charged mystery from highly acclaimed author Barbara Taylor Sissel. Emily Lebay had always thought of her family as ordinary. Sure, they've endured their share of problems, even a time of great trouble—what family hasn't? But when a woman's body turns up in the dense woods near their home, and Emily's grown son, Tucker, is accused of murder, Emily is forced to confront the unfathomable, and everything she believed about her life is called into question. This isn't the first time Tucker has been targeted by the police; a year ago he was a person of interest when another woman was found dead in the same stretch of woods. Still, neither Emily nor her daughter, Lissa, can reconcile their Tucker with these brutal crimes. Terrified, convinced there's been a tragic mistake, Emily and Lissa set out to learn the truth about Tucker, once and for all. And while his life hangs in the balance, what they discover proves far more shocking than their darkest fears…. "A gut-wrenching mystery…enjoyable and insightful." —RT Book Reviews on Evidence of Life
