This is Henri Nouwen's "secret journal." It was written during the most difficult period of his life, when he suddenly lost his self-esteem, his energy to live and work, his sense of being loved, even his hope in God. Although he experienced excruciating anguish and despair, he was still able to keep a journal in which he wrote a spiritual imperative to himself each day that emerged from his conversations with friends and supporters. For more than eight years, Henri Nouwen felt that what he wrote was too raw and private to share with others. Instead, he published The Return of the Prodigal Son, in which he expressed some of the insights gained during his mental and spiritual crisis. But then friends asked him, "Why keep your anguish hidden from the many people who have been nurtured by your writing? Wouldn't it be of consolation for many to know about the fierce inner battle that lies underneath so many of your spiritual insights?" For the countless men and women who have to live through the pain of broken relationships, or who suffer from the loss of a loved one, this book about the inner voice of love offers new courage, new hope, even new life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Voice of the New Year

as rich and refreshing cordials ; as lights in the perpetual darkness of her solitary
life . ... She spoke of Christian friends who visited her occasionally , to read to her
the precious word of truth , and regarded their visits as tokens of a Father's love .
... she did not enjoy , which she never had enjoyed , even in the excitement of
festive dances , alternated , as they were , with the reproaches of the inner voice .

As Christians we believe that God speaks -- that God has spoken to people down through the centuries and still speaks to us today. But just how does God speak to us? Has his speech changed over time? And how do we bhearb the voice of God? In this insightful book Ben Campbell Johnson explores the subject of divine speech, highlighting its importance to faith and leading Christian believers into the practice of listening for Godbs voice in daily life. Johnson first explores the biblical foundations of divine communication, tracing the ways that God has spoken to humankind from the calling of Abraham, to the appearance of Jesus, to the continuing work of the Spirit in the early church. He then gleans important lessons about Godbs language from a wide range of Christian figures throughout history -- Polycarp, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Cvila, Henri Nouwen, and others. As this historical record shows, God communicates with us in a variety of ways. In exploring these different modes of bGodSpeech, b Johnson deftly guides readers into the practice of bintensive listening, b a way of posing issues to God and discerning his response. Numerous anecdotes illuminate Johnsonbs discussion, and each chapter ends with questions for reflection and discussion as well as suggestions for journaling. Johnson concludes the book by recounting a number of personal experiences that vividly illustrate the value of learning to listen to Godbs voice. At a time when many Christians hunger for a more personal, meaningful connection with God, this book shows readers how to discern divine language and forge a closer, richer relationship with bthe God who speaks.b

“The Inner Voice of the Heart” is a collection of poems written during late 2008 through mid-2012. Each of them resulted from personal thoughts and experiences and from reading God’s Word. Before writing down these words I processed them through my heart to be blessed by the Holy Spirit. Listening to the inner voice of the heart opens up the Truth of being. It takes practice, patience and faith to hear and understand as the Holy Spirit responds, conveys and directs the Truth through the magic of the heart. My hope is that each reader will use these poems as a guide and a catalyst to gain insight into the power and love of the Holy Spirit, who was sent as a Comforter by the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

Drawing on his many years of experience as a spiritual director and counselor, Kelsey shares his insights on spiritual friendships. He believes that, "It takes courage to set out on the spiritual journey, but it takes even more courage to accept the responsibility of walking along with another once we have really known the dangers ourselves". Kelsey's personal witness speaks to all of us.

The Inner Eye of Love

It is not based on reasoning and thinking and conscious effort but rather on letting
things happen , letting the Tao act , letting God work in me ... And the art or gift by
which we come to recognize the inner voice of the Spirit is called discernment .

It's time to start living the life God purposely created just for you! You were divinely created with natural characteristics, gifts, and summons from God which is the "inner voice" that lives in us. The obedience of the "inner voice" will make the difference between living a life of fulfillment, or being the victim of enslavement that will soon squeeze your soul to the limit of feeling no escape from the busy lifestyle of stress. How often do you feel your life has no direction, routine, unimportant, or trapped? The Inner Voice: God is Calling You gives guidance on how to escape this mentality. This book teaches you how to live a more simple and peaceful life. It helps give guidance about God's simple purpose for human creation. Many people believe that God only calls certain people to be disciples of his work, but God has a calling on any and everyone that wishes to accept His gift. Unfortunately, many will never witness their true purpose because they will never grow spiritually mature enough to hear God's call. If we are going to be all we are meant to be, this is where we must begin. Hear his call!
