Devotions based on Brennan Manning’s book, The Rabbi’s Heartbeat

As Christians we have the resurrection power at work in us. This power enables us to accept pain and to discover that we are not alone. It helps us to stand fast in our present circumstances and grow as a result.   Even when tragedy alters our direction in life, we can experience His resurrection power. Every day we are being reshaped into His image. Everything that happens to us is designed to this end and nothing exists beyond the pale of His presence.  Nothing is irrelevant to it and nothing is without significance to it. Through union with Him nothing is wasted. Everything great and small, important and unimportant, distant and near has meaning and value.  “There is never a moment that does not carry eternal significance-no action that is sterile, no love that lacks fruition, and no prayer that is unheard.”   Let us walk in this freedom and power.
