How do we have a relationship with a God we can’t see? There must be more to the Christian life than silence, and more to God than a vacant stare.

 Divine Applause weaves together biblical insights and personal stories that illustrate the surprising ways God connects with us. Let Jeff Anderson show you how to use your spiritual senses to experience God.

  • Sense God’s personal attention in unmistakable ways.
  • Cultivate a constant awareness of God’s presence.
  • Enjoy the reward of secrets between you and God.
  • Take risks to break out of a status-quo life and connect more directly with God.
  • Discover the intensity of God’s interest in you.

 

You don’t have to settle for a distant walk with God. He wants you to know that He notices—and that He delights in you.

“There was definitely a spark and a strong attraction from the first moments I locked eyes with Nick… Nick tells everyone that when he was speaking that day back in 2010, he looked out into the crowd, locked eyes with me, and had to force himself to look away.”

Kanae had experienced relationships based on superficial attraction, but she longed to find a mate with strong character and faith—a man who would be a godly husband and father. When Nick and Kanae met in the most amazing way, they realized that God—the ultimate Matchmaker– had used even their discouraging and painful experiences to prepare them for each other…for the love of their life.

Later, when Nick realized that God had a purpose for him, his life took on new meaning.  But after a long-term relationship ended in heartache, would he ever find someone to marry? In this excerpt from their new book, Love Without Limits, Nick shares how insecurities can make or break a relationship.

Even though he was born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic created a “ridiculously good life.” But after dating disappointments and a failed relationship, he reached his mid-twenties worried that he would never find a woman to love him and share his life.

Then Nick met Kanae and everything changed.  But even with undeniable chemistry, they would have to navigate twists and turns worthy of a romantic comedy before becoming “one” in marriage.

In Love Without Limits Nick and Kanae tell how they improbably found each other, fell in love, and then fought to overcome skepticism from others about their relationship. Filled with practical insights that will benefit any couple, this inspiring book describes a godly courtship and the early years of the Vujicics’ marriage and parenting journey.

Above all, Love Without Limits is an inspiring reminder that when Christ is at the center of a relationship—even with serious challenges—true love will triumph.
