Be still. Be grateful. Be strong. Be courageous.

Sure, that's easy for you to say, but you don't know what I'm dealing with. Is that what you're thinking? The good news is that it is possible to be still, grateful, strong, and courageous--even when undergoing trials, facing unknowns, battling fears, or struggling with feelings of inadequacy or insecurity. It all has to do with where your focus is. In this beautifully hopeful devotional, Twila shares important truths and helps you shift your attention from situations and self to a big God. Learn as she shares how Whatever we focus on becomes magnified. Our circumstances don't change who God is; they show us who God is. The better we know God, the more we can trust him. This forty-day devotional contains encouraging readings, Scripture verses, prayers, and daily affirmations, which will lead you to realize that you indeed have the power to be. We are honored to have Twila Belk be Book Fun's March cover girl. Click on cover to read more!
