A Journey to Bethlehem

Diane K Chamberlain

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to journey with Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem?  Why not come and take a journey with me, as I walk back in time, to share some events that took place…right up to the time of Jesus’ birth. Come and discover a true connection with Jesus this Christmas that will warm your heart and bring back the real meaning of Christmas into your life.

Long Description... 

 A Journey to Bethlehem will take us on a journey that will lead us one step closer to the place where Jesus was born. We will meet people like Mary, Elizabeth, Zacharias, and Joseph. We will also camp out with the shepherds and experience the moment, when the Angel of the Lord visited them and then we will walk with them, as we head towards the place where Jesus was born. We will also experience the difficult moments that Mary and Joseph faced on this journey and we will not only learn about the lives of these people and what they experienced  but we will also learn how we can apply these moments from the journey to our own lives.

 As we begin our first day of the journey together, we will be traveling to the place, where the angel of the Lord approached Mary, with the good news that she had been chosen to be the one to bring the true Messiah into the world. On the second day, we will be traveling with Mary, to visit Elizabeth and Zacharias and on the third day, we will go and spend some time with Joseph. After visiting Joseph, we will join up with Mary once more on the fourth day and we will make that long journey to Bethlehem; where on the fifth day, we will experience a great ending. As we prepare for the journey, my prayer is that we will open our hearts, to what God longs to share with us this Christmas.

About the author

Diane K Chamberlain was raised in a small town in Michigan where she married a wonderful man, Keith. She was born with a congenital problem in both knees and went through many surgeries trying to correct the problem.

Little did she know that God had “branded” her at birth for such a moment as this. Many in this world grow up and go to school or college to get their education, but that’s not what God had in store for Diane.

Diane’s education for writing her books, came from twenty-one painful knee surgeries, heartache from sexual abuse as a child, and the loss of many things in her life, including the loss of children. As each painful moment came and as each loving desire left, God was taking all that brokenness in her life, and He was piecing it all together like a beautiful puzzle; to make these books what they are.

 “Time Alone With God: A Devotional Study for Discovering Renewed Hope in God,” is a book of devotions that have been compiled into book form, so rather than reading a devotion every day, this book will become a personal Bible study between the reader and God and one of the greatest inspirational books you will read. This book is filled with inspirational words that will become words of encouragement to the reader as they take a personal journey with God…a journey that will lead them away from despair and bring them to a place of renewed hope.

"Time Alone With God: A Devotional Study for Discovering Renewed Hope in God," has eight different sections, many chapters, and tidbits of hope throughout the book. The first section is dealing with an unsettled circumstance or the moment of adversity…the time when we feel the weakest. From there, we go into a section that helps us to understand, what can allow us to fall further into despair or what can lead us into other traps set up by Satan and then we do a study on Satan and the plan he has for keeping us in despair.

As we come to the center of the book, we will study the things that will help us to view our trials in a different way, so we can see them through God’s eyes, instead of our own. From there, we learn in section five, how we can weaken evil and as we enter section six, we begin to take a new turn away from our despair and study the things that will bring us to a healing. From there, we will enter section seven and learn how we can continue to press on with God’s help, especially after overcoming a previous circumstance.

As we enter the final section of the book…section eight, we will study a renewed hope that can usher us into the presence of God. In this section, we will study the peace of God…the peace that can calm any new storm that may arise. Then we will study different forms of love that can bring renewed hope back into our lives and finally, we will view eternity, as the final step of our journey. In this chapter, we will study how important it is to remain close to God, especially during times of adversity and we will come to see, that each choice we make in life, can keep us doomed within our despair or our choice can be a means of God eternally lifting us out of despair.

We do not always understand the reasons for these moments of adversity but one thing we do know; is that with God in our lives, there is a way out… a means of walking beyond a powerful circumstance, to discover a greater connection with God!

Time Alone with God: A Devotional Study for Discovering Renewed Hope in God will lead you to words of wisdom; that come from a powerful God and will become one of the best motivational books you’ve ever read!

 "A Morning Thought Devotional" is a series of daily devotionals that inspired the author, as she faced insurmountable pain and heartache throughout her life. The devotions are truly inspired by God and will allow you to connect with a God of love and strength, rather than standing face to face with a weak circumstance.

Are you facing uncertain moments of pain and heartache in your life? Are you struggling to just make it through one day? “A Morning Thought Devotional” will become a morning devotional that will help you to start your day, with words of hope…words that will become strength to you, while carrying you over the obstacles of a trying moment or difficult day.

There are 70 powerful devotions in this book that are truly inspired by God and were first used, to inspire the author, during her own difficult moments of pain and heartache. The devotions will bring the negative thoughts and feelings to light; where you can feel the presence of God, rather than the weak moments that stand before you.

Diane has come to see within her own life; that these weak moments we experience, are not only meant to afflict us but to lead us further away, from the peace and joy that is only found through Jesus Christ. But at the same time,  when we apply words of hope, to a deceitful thought…brought about by evil; then the light of God’s presence begins to illuminate the darkness around us, which once more gives us the sustaining hope we need, to walk out of a circumstance…to a place of peace and renewal.

As you read the devotions, in “A Morning Thought Devotional;” you will soon find that these inspired words become tools; that will help to cultivate the heart, while bringing about new and lasting growth. Even though we live in an imperfect world and we face obstacles and challenges in life; that doesn’t mean that they are meant to take us to a place, where they can destroy us but rather, they are meant to strengthen us, in a way that will help us to overcome other obstacles that we may face in life and this is what you will discover, as you read each devotion, in “A Morning Thought Devotional.”

“A Morning Thought Devotional,” can be used for a specific need or as a book of daily readings and will become one of the best motivational books that will bring hope back into your life, after reading each  new day devotional. Come and check out one of the best inspirational books that are truly inspired by God.
