The Book of Blessings

God is the Author of all blessings. When we speak blessings from the Bible, we are literally imparting God’s blessing. The Lord has given us this authority along with the freedom to use it.

The Book of Blessings is a how-to-why-to book containing more than 500 Scripture blessings, sorted into 24 categories so that readers can apply the power of the Bible to almost any situation. This is for anyone wanting to enrich the lives of others by speaking the right word at the right time but may struggle to find the appropriate expression.

As we study and restore the practice of blessing by all people who love God, we will discover the profound influence His Word can have on our families, our communities, and our world.

"Your book is in front of me...I'm picking out certain blessings for my husband and me to speak over our children...and I just wanted to tell you what a blessing your book is to us. Thank you for obeying the Lord and writing it! And when I see Pastor Sam's name on the forward, the book seems to have even more significance for some reason." - Cindy (Chesapeake, VA)



Consider the Impact...

Emotions are often considered a bad thing. Have you ever heard someone say, “Don’t be so emotional”? When Jesus observed the family and friends of Lazarus mourning his death, the Scriptures tell us he was deeply moved and he wept. Emotion. Moses’ reluctance to accept God’s call at the burning bush to lead the Israelites out of Egypt caused the LORD’s anger to burn against him. Emotion. 1 John 4:16 (NIV) says, “We know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love.” Emotion.  God created us with emotions and the Bible reveals his own expressions of emotion. Emotions are not a bad thing. They are gifts from God. In fact, 1 Corinthians 13:13 tells us love (an emotion) is the greatest gift. 

The love I feel as I hold one of my grandchildren can give me a glimpse of how much God loves me. If I feel fear about a decision I’m considering, it may be the Lord nudging me in a different direction. If news of a social injustice triggers my anger, God may be spurring me to join a group aiding the oppressed. The warmth I feel as I gaze upon a spectacular sunset may initiate a time of worship for the Creator who made it. Let’s understand and embrace our emotions as a gift from God through which we can know him better.
