Strength for the Journey

God's Enduring Presence
Strength for the spiritual journey

Joyce’s new book, God's Enduring Presence, Strength for the spiritual journey,  is due out in December, 2008.    
From the author:   
 

    As I reviewed the reflections contained in this book, I noticed that quite a few directly or indirectly focus on the presence of God. This did not surprise me but it did reawaken me to how my awareness of the Holy One's nearness has claimed my heart. This dimension of my faith has nurtured and sustained my life since childhood. As I have aged, much has changed in both my external and internal world. One thing that has not been altered is my consistent experience of the enduring quality of God's presence. Through the joys and sorrows of my years, this abiding love remains strong and lasting. I cannot imagine my life without the treasure of the Holy One's steadfast companionship and guidance....

    Daily prayer and meditation are central ways in which I have maintained my awareness and gratitude for God's enduring presence. This is why I readily responded "yes" when first asked many years ago to write brief reflections on the daily Scripture readings for Creative Communications' Living Faith publication. My positive decision arose from a desire to help others grow in both attentiveness and appreciation of the Holy One's nearness.

    The short essays found within these pages have been edited but are basically the one's I've written for Living Faith during the last seven years. (A previous collection of reflections can be found in my book, Inviting God In.) As you use these reflections for your prayer, may they enrich your faith and draw your ever closer to our Enduring Presence.

What people are saying :

 

Sister Joyce Rupp is one of today's most popular spiritual guides. These minute-meditations are lively and insightful. Not infrequently, they amount to a gentle spiritual wack upside the head ... which is exactly what most of us need on a regular basis.
Mitch Finley
Author of 101 Ways to Happiness


In a voice reliably gentle, frank, and persuasive, Joyce Rupp introduces us to the One who goes by many names: Beloved Companion, Source of Joy, Immense Calm, and Divinity in Disguise. She reminds us that God is above all a generour Presence beckoning us toward moments of grateful illumination.  

Alice Camille
Award-Winning Columnist and Author of God's Word is Alive


These brief and highly readable meditations one again demonstrate Joyce Rupp's "spiritual knack" for discovering God just about everywhere: in prayer, in worship, a kind word, an old house in need of repair, a puzzling situation, a personal rejection, the death of a loved one, inviting a stranger to lunch, a faithful marriage, a hug. You cannot read this book without seeing the world with new eyes - eyes that detect in your own life God's enduring presence.
