I finished the first draft of my next book during Writing Week Challenge!

Metamorphosis: Transformed From Despair to Hope

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1, NKJV)

This past week I joined my writing coach Shelley Hitz’s 7-Day Writing Week challenge, and I completed the first draft of my new book, Metamorphosis: Transformed From Despair to Hope.

If you are struggling to have hope and faith in the midst of your difficult situation, whether it’s your marriage, problems with your kids, financial struggles, issues at work, health challenges, ministry or career obstacles, this book will encourage you that with Jesus Christ, there is always hope.

Hope

I hired the graphic designer to create the cover, did multiple edits, and the only thing I have left to do is hire the formatter to get it formatted for your Kindle–then upload it to Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) at Amazon.

You can see the new cover in the picture at the top of this page. I chose the image for it at Lightstock and my graphic designer, pro_ebookcovers, at Fiverr did a beautiful job on the cover!

When it is live at Amazon, I’ll let you know! If you aren’t already on my mailing list here at BethJones.net, be sure to sign up today at the top of the page on the right hand side with your name and email address, and get your free gift!

I feel a great sense of accomplishment about this book as it’s the last book God told me to write. I know I’ll be writing books for the rest of my life, but I feel good about obeying what God told me to do.

I also want to share with you the message that no matter what your circumstances, you can have hope. For with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

Do you struggle with hate? My new book is on Amazon!

Do you struggle with hate? I confess that I’ve battled this evil thing for my entire life. 

Can someone who is a Christian hate someone? Of course! 

You may be surprised to know that Jesus, the Apostle Paul, and others in the Bible addressed this topic of hatred with God’s own people! We are all just human, and we struggle every day with sin. That is WHY we need Jesus! I’m so thankful for His grace and mercy that He showered upon me!

God is Love and He will teach you and me how to unconditionally love others.

I’m so excited to announce that my newest book, Metamorphosis: Transformed From Hate to Love, is now live at Amazon, as an ebook for your Kindle! 

https://www.amazon.com/Metamorphosis-Transformed-Hate-Beth-Jones-ebook/dp/B07BTYBB8G/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

This book is about my life-long struggle with hatred. You may think, “What in the world? Christians aren’t supposed to hate! Especially a Christian speaker and author!” But I keep things real! 

In this book, I share spiritual warfare tactics and practical tips for overcoming one of the enemy Satan’s powerful weapons against God’s people–hatred.

Hate is what made Satan deceive Eve, bringing sin into the world. Hate is what nailed Jesus Christ to the Cross. Hate is rampant in the world today, because Satan is doing all he can to steal, kill, and destroy in the lives of God’s people.

Refreshing Rain: Repent of your sin

cherry tree after rain

Yesterday we had a sudden thunderstorm here: heavy rain, loud thunder, and lightning. It stopped as suddenly as it started, and reminded me of the thunderstorms in the south where I grew up.

Afterward, everything looked so fresh: the emerald-green grass, the tree’s leaves, and the beautiful flowers like our neighbor’s cherry tree, pictured above.  This reminded me of Acts 3:19-21, NIV:

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus.

The word “sin” isn’t very popular today. We like to call it by other names: mistake, weakness, or “I just screwed up.” (If we even admit it; sometimes we blame others, hide, justify, or make excuses for our sin.)

 But God, who is holy, calls a spade a spade: it’s sin! And He knows that sin will destroy our lives and hinder your purpose and mine.

God is not an angry Deity ready to just zap you with lightning and send you to hell every time you mess up a little! Hell was created for the devil and his demons, not man. God loves you and has a good plan for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11) God wants you to repent of your sin, so that nothing will stand between you and Him. He wants to be as close to you as possible.

When we repent of our sins, we are refreshed. We feel relieved. We don’t carry around that guilt, and worse, condemnation for our sins. Jesus died on the Cross over 2,000 years ago for you and me, as a sacrifice to God and a substitute for our sins, so we wouldn’t have to carry the burden of them. His death and resurrection sets us free. When we repent, we are in right relationship with God and others. We are forgiven–forever. 

Today, ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart for any sin. Confess it to God. Ask His forgiveness. Let nothing stand in your way of intimacy with God. and fulfilling your purpose.

Receive the refreshing rain and the beauty, like the flowers after the rain, of His forgiveness, love, and power in your life.
