Mike Shea is a powerful author, full of faith and life. His generosity to everyone he meets is contagious. I know him personally and we both go into the prisons all over Minnesota and give away our books (Serenity; New Day, New Me; and Break Out) free to men and women who are incarcerated, looking for resources to transition into society with. I cannot stress it enough, get his books! Please read this life-changing book, you will not regret it!
God wants to take us on a pilgrimage to a place where hopelessness is replaced by hope, and death is traded for life. In this 365 day devotional, we read how words spoken from respect and wisdom, darkness is exchanged for God’s light, depression is substituted for action and service, and addiction is swapped for recovery. We climb into Jesus’ lap to find rest and peace simply because we can.
The meditations are our story. An imperfect journey, by imperfect people, into the loving arms of the Father. We have been saved by the blood of Jesus and encouraged by the Holy Spirit to continue the recovery journey on his way, not ours. Serenity is possible, because all things are possible for those who believe in Christ Jesus.
New Day, New Me is a devotional journal designed to help those in recovery–and everyone is in recovery from something–develop, strengthen, or renew a relationship with God. It’s essential to depend on someone, or something, other than ourselves. Daily devotion, prayer, and meditation time are critical components of maintaining sobriety and building a strong foundation with God-free indeed! Just as our physical bodies need daily nourishment, we also need spiritual food every day to withstand life on life’s terms. New Day, New Me incorporates scriptural references with practical, spiritual teachings that can be applied to everyday life circumstances.
