Most people see trouble as something negative and seek to avoid it whenever possible. But what if it’s those troubles that actually lead to greater blessing and purpose? In The Blessing of Adversity, a retired U.S. Navy admiral and the 62nd chaplain of the U.S. Senate distills the wisdom gained from thirty years as a counselor, theologian, and psychologist. Barry Black offers a blueprint for removing the sting of life’s trials, showing us how to let God use our pain for his glory by blessing others—and how that can actually help heal our own pain. Drawing on Scripture and his own experiences as a counselor and chaplain to some of the most powerful people in the world, Black teaches us how to deal with seasons of God’s apparent silence, offers techniques for staying encouraged in the middle of life’s storms, and shows how to find advantages in adversity.
Providing profound spiritual insights and perspectives for everyday living, this inspirational collection offers a series of uplifting reflections, blessings, and wisdom designed to promote an awareness and understanding of the wonders of the world around us. (Inspiration)

God wants us to know how much he loves us. This love is not "generic." It is, as Pastor Gerritt Dawson puts it: "specific, intense, free, passionate, delighted love! Love fitted to each one of us in our uniquely created being." When we experience this love, we experience blessing. The Bible tells a blessing story. And in these pages we are invited to enter into that story with the Triune God. Along the way we share the journey with many others who have inspiring stories of personal and social change. This workbook will transform your relationship with God and others as you discover the unique ways that God wants to express his love for you. This 40-day guide will walk you and your group through passages of Scripture, times of prayer and simple exercises all designed to lead into the deep blessedness of life in God s love.
How to Speak the Blessings Over Your Life and Get Results
Many still ask God to do what he has already done! The reason is simple: they don't understand how the kingdom works. God is not going to do what he has already done for you! You have to learn to receive it! The bible says: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath BLESSED US WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS in heavenly places in Christ" - (Ephesians 1:3). God has already blessed you with every good thing that exists in Christ. Health, prosperity, victory, success, joy, peace, and every blessing you can imagine are already yours. You have already been blessed in all things, and with all things. What you need is to learn and know how to get the blessing working in your life. But we often pray as though God is unwilling to bless us or as though he has not blessed us. Many are used to shouting and yelling the following prayers at God: "I will not let you go unless you bless me" They yell at God as though he was unwilling to bless, while in the actual sense of it he has already given you all these things. So why do many folks pray as though they are not already blessed? So why do many Christians pray as one needing to be blessed? The reason is because many folks don't know what the scripture means when it says God has blessed us WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS in heavenly places in Christ. You should live and function as one who is already blessed! If you can just calm down and grasp this fact, Christianity will begin to have a greater meaning to you! I have discovered that receiving is quite simple! Receiving involves speaking the blessings over your life regularly with a certain mindset that you are not asking God to do what He is not willing to do or has not done already for you, but that all things are already yours and available to you! It is shift from praying beggarly prayers to taking what's yours in Christ by Spiritual Birth. Sadly many don't know how to do this. Speaking the Blessings is to engage the blessings, activate them and release them to be made manifest in your life. Speaking the blessings is also a powerful form of spiritual warfare and devils don't like it neither can they fight or withstand it. It is a combination of both spiritual warfare to clear the way for the blessing to be manifested and a "blessing highway" that delivers the blessing to you. Speaking the Blessings over one's life was how God intended for all His children to live and pray. It is quite simple but very powerful and a deliverer of the required blessings. HOW TO SPEAK THE BLESSINGS OVER YOUR LIFE AND GET RESULTS, was therefore written to provide you powerful insights with sample prayers on how to effectively speak the blessings over your life on a daily basis and INDEED GET RESULTS!

"A down-to-earth and deeply inspiring work of applied spirituality, this book explores the history and practice of the act of blessing. To bless means to wish, unconditionally, for total, unrestricted good for others, from the deepest wellspring in the innermost chamber of one's heart. This book provides tools and information that enable people to ground their spiritual practice in everyday life, in the street, the workplace, the kitchen, the supermarket, everywhere. Discussed are the law of positive expectations, the law of unconditional love, and blessing as a spiritual bath. Practiced daily, the blessings provided will foster a deep and lasting inner calm."
This book is written for the many people who are seeking the BLESSINGS OF GOD in different areas of their lives. I started life and ministry on a pretty much lower level - that is, with nothing really positive in any area of my life. Together, with my siblings, we were all living virtually insignificant lives, we were broke, and we struggled to rise up in life. Life in those days was not enjoyable at all for me!But as I started serving the Lord, I came to realise the missing element in my life - the blessings of God! I really saw, that, the difference or change, I sought for in my life, could only be achieved by experiencing God's transformative BLESSINGS. I saw how ordinary men like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Moses, Jesus the Christ, Paul, etc lived extraordinary lives and made significant impact in their respective generations. And the common denominator, I found in the lives of these great people - was that- they encountered the BLESSINGS OF GOD in diverse areas of their lives at certain points in time. After, I discovered the secrets of these great people, I embarked on putting them into practise in my own life and ministry and I started reaping great results in a short span of time!I know that you, too, my dear reader, desire to experience God's blessings in your life - in your marriage, your family, your christian life, your business, your career, your health, your ministry, your finances, etc. Many believers always murmur about how they have served the Lord for years and yet have not seen any significant transformation in most areas of their lives apart from their spiritual lives.I have written this book to HELP YOU!
