The Slippery Curse of the Blessed Life

Eighty Poems, Inspirational Reflections, and Helpful Spiritual Nuggets
  • By John D. Emens
Product Description

Relationship, not religion.

Faith, not fear.

Devotion, not division.

Adoration despite adversity

God is patient, kind, merciful, and forgiving. Eternal life is His true gift. Developing a close, positive, meaningful relationship with the Lord provides peace and joy despite hardship.

In a Christ-centered compendium of reflections inspired by his personal suffering as a physically compromised man, including leg amputation and protracted dialysis, John Emens shares scriptural strategies and life lessons with the hope of helping believers grow spiritually while gaining a more intimate knowledge of God and His ways. Within his affirming, evangelical writings, Emens touches on several topics such as simple spiritual insights gained even if only in an old fishing boat, to the inescapable joy of hearing the still small voice of the Lord despite the daily maelstrom of life, and why it is important to praise and bless Him not for what he can give us but for what He has already done for us, and much more. Included are relatable passages from the bible that remind us of the power and grace of the Lord and the beauty that awaits us for all eternity.

The Slippery Curse of the Blessed Life is a collection of inspirational poems, reflections, and spiritual nuggets that encourages a deep, meaningful exploration of faith in order to better understand the character, nature, and loving habits of the Lord.
