Identity theft. We all know the damage it inflicts—or do we? There’s a kind of identity theft that goes far deeper than our financial records. It impoverishes our souls and keeps us from experiencing the richness in life God intends for us.Have you been ...• Robbed by Relationships?• Mugged by the Mirror?• Stolen by Success?• Pickpocketed by the Past?Mike Breaux exposes the four “identity thieves” that steal our sense of who we truly are and render our lives diminished versions of what they were intended to be. We were never meant to be chameleons, changing into whatever we need to be in order to gain love and acceptance. We were created for more—much more—than the way we look, what we accomplish or fail to accomplish, and the sum of our past rejections, failures, and wounds.The good news is that no matter how they were stolen, our identities are retrievable. With trademark humor, compelling stories, and down-to-earth wisdom, Mike Breaux shows how we can reclaim our deep, God-given identities and live freely, purposefully, and joyously out of a renewed knowledge of who we truly are.

»Das ›1984‹ fürs Internetzeitalter« Zeit online - jetzt als E-Book für nur 9,99€ Leben in der schönen neuen Welt des total transparenten Internets: Mit Der Circle hat Dave Eggers einen hellsichtigen, hochspannenden Roman über die Abgründe des gegenwärtigen Vernetzungswahns geschrieben. Ein beklemmender Pageturner, der weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Huxleys Schöne neue Welt reloaded: Die 24-jährige Mae Holland ist überglücklich. Sie hat einen Job ergattert in der hippsten Firma der Welt, beim »Circle«, einem freundlichen Internetkonzern mit Sitz in Kalifornien, der die Geschäftsfelder von Google, Apple, Facebook und Twitter geschluckt hat, indem er alle Kunden mit einer einzigen Internetidentität ausstattet, über die einfach alles abgewickelt werden kann. Mit dem Wegfall der Anonymität im Netz – so ein Ziel der »drei Weisen«, die den Konzern leiten – wird es keinen Schmutz mehr geben im Internet und auch keine Kriminalität. Mae stürzt sich voller Begeisterung in diese schöne neue Welt mit ihren lichtdurchfluteten Büros und High-Class-Restaurants, wo Sterneköche kostenlose Mahlzeiten für die Mitarbeiter kreieren, wo internationale Popstars Gratis-Konzerte geben und fast jeden Abend coole Partys gefeiert werden. Sie wird zur Vorzeigemitarbeiterin und treibt den Wahn, alles müsse transparent sein, auf die Spitze. Doch eine Begegnung mit einem mysteriösen Kollegen ändert alles ...Mit seinem neuen Roman Der Circle hat Dave Eggers ein packendes Buch über eine bestürzend nahe Zukunft geschrieben, einen Thriller, der uns ganz neu über die Bedeutung von Privatsphäre, Demokratie und Öffentlichkeit nachdenken und den Wunsch aufkommen lässt, die Welt und das Netz mögen uns bitte manchmal vergessen. »Ein brandaktueller Roman über unsere Gegenwart – wunderbar« FAZ »Eggers futuristischer Silicon-Valley-Horror ist kein Orwell’sches 2084, sondern eine der Wirklichkeit nur wenig vorauseilende, im Grunde ziemlich realistisch anmutende Vision.« NZZ

Starting each morning with God is a must. Studying the Holy Word and talking to God everyday can change your life. I set my alarm atleast 30 minutes early every day to allow time with God. Keeping a prayer journal helps me to focus on my prayer, crying out to God with an honest heart. God longs to hear from us. I started writing devotions to help me cope with difficult times and before I knew it, I set a goal of 365. Each of these devotions were revealed to me from God as we spent time together every morning and throughout the day. I hope these words will bless you as much as they have blessed me.
