About This Book:
Foreword by Pastor Charles Carrin and Dr. Corey Cameron You-one person-an individual, can literally change this whole world with love. By focusing on love, making a choice to love, feeding all that is positive, good, and of the light with exuberance and abundance instead of feeding the negative and evil things of the darkness. You can literally change the world and yourself. One relationship–one interaction–one decision at a time. If you are experiencing the dark night of the soul in affliction year after year, it will present you, as it has me, with opportunities not found in most other life circumstances. This is a life story of being in the fire, where I currently remain, where my heart for the Lord has become increasingly insatiable. A deepened intimacy has developed and continues to grow even through this very moment, and will continue beyond. As you read, this is my hope and prayer for you as well.

Elizabeth Chalker’s Inspiring Book will ministers to the readers to let them know that Joy is Unspeakable! Faith is Unsinkable! Love Is Unstoppable! Anything Is Possible! if you allow yourself to believe and putting that into action. (Joy Unspeakable) We as Christians should realizes that God’s grace is all complete,He supply our every need; While we sit and learn at Jesus’ feet, We are truly free, yes, free indeed.It is joy unspeakable and full of glory. In the Book of 1 Peter , the 1st Chapter and the 8th verse mentioned “Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,” (Faith Unsinkable) our faith is unsinkable as a result of that fact we place our faith in, not as a result of our faith staying enduring in our own power. In the Book of Matthew the 14th Chapter, the 30th and the 31st Verses mentioned “But when he saw the wind,he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me. Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” (Love Stoppable) God will pursue us with the power and glory that is unrelenting with passion and mercy. His unstoppable love that will never ends. In The Book Of Psalm the145th Chapter and the 8th and the 9th verses mentioned “I know there are times we all feel alone, as though there is nobody on our side as we fight each day, but know that we are never alone, the Father’s love for us is so great He never leaves us, He will be there with you in every battle.” (Anything Is Possible) If we can see how we imagine our life that we desire to dream now and we definitely know that anything is possible. It’s not who we are, it’s where we are going. We don’t need a magic wand, believe that anything is possible. In the Book of Genesis the 18th Chapter and the 14th verse mentioned “Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.” If we allow ourselves to believe that Faith is Unsinkable, Joy Is Unspeakable, Love is Unstoppable and Anything is Possible and put those affirmations into actions then it will definitely happens.
