Finding the peace you long for is one reason I wanted to read this book. I was very happy I did. We face circumstances over which we have little control. We cannot control other people's choices, even through their choices do affect us. We cannot control certain things like disease and disaster, though both are a part of our world.
What we do have control over are the three things Paul had control over: attitude, direction, and trust. In other words, what we have control over is what we set our minds on.
This book of remembrance, a tool to help you remember the presence of Christ in the middle of the difficult places in your life. I have the hardest time in the middle of a problem, probably because I want to control the outcome and realize I can't. Through this book will not change your problem, it can help you look up and change your perspective. It is my prayer that each page will give you a little hope for the journey.
I also liked this prayer:
Lord, it is so easy to focus on my problem rather than on your power. Give me the grace to live above my problems with the view of your faithfulness covering me in each of life's situations. In the practical, guide me. In the spiritual, train me. In the places in between, steady me for the duration of the problem at hand. I surrender all that overwhelms me today into your hands. Amen.
Great book and recommend it to all. I was given this book by Christian Review Of Books. [...]
