Picture a river at flood stage—the water is surging and churning—and you are desperate to reach the other side.
The last thing you want is to dive in, but you can’t turn back. What do you do?
You may not be facing a literal raging torrent, but you may anxiously be noticing things coming between you and God’s plan for your life. Do you seem to always be in a bad mood? Has someone sinned against you? Is your loved one struggling with addiction? Just like the Jordan River prevented the Israelites from entering the promised land of milk and honey, obstacles in your life—including your own attitude—may be keeping you from living in Christ’s full victory.
Crossing the Jordan depicts the life of freedom awaiting those who choose leave the wilderness and cross over into the land of promise. A compilation of convicting biblical studies from multiple authors with real-life experiences of suffering, bitterness and addiction, the book originated at America’s Keswick Retreat Center as a study for women whose fiancés/husbands were residents of the Colony of Mercy (a 120-day recovery program focused on presenting the gospel’s message of victorious living to men caught in the bondage of addiction).
This book targets key heart issues and is designed to be completed in fourteen to sixteen weeks. If you diligently apply these biblical concepts and seek the illumination of the Holy Spirit, Crossing the Jordan will change you, renew you and help you grow.
Are you willing to step out in faith—trusting God to meet you, no matter how threatening the waves of life may seem?
Are you ready to get your feet wet?
