Rejoice With Me
'Christ dwells in you in your present situation.
He does not wait for your perfection.
He accepts your brokenness as his home.'
Psalm 23, 'The Lord is my Shepherd', describes the psalmist as a trusting sheep, travelling through both pleasant and difficult terrain, always in the reassuring presence of God. The psalm is for all of us, yet when troubles come - which they inevitably do - rather than feeling God's loving presence we may start to doubt his love; instead of feeling safe, we experience fear, guilt, hurt and loneliness - the loneliness of a lost sheep.
In Rejoice with Me Annie draws on the parable of the lost sheep and other imagery from the Bible and the natural world. She writes from her own personal experience to offer reflections, prayers and questions for self-development for anyone with an interest in considering life's difficulties from a biblical perspective.
Ideal as a spiritual accompaniment for individuals as well as pastoral support groups and churches asking how to meet the needs of individuals and communities and how to live lovingly and with integrity in the twenty-first century.
