First off, Shelley gives ample Bible references throughout, nearly every page, often many per page, you’ll find total scriptures and passages from the Bible. I love how she doesn’t read into the Bible or give her own interpretation with only a verse or two to back up what she’s saying. These days so many can easily make those who are not that knowledgeable about the Bible stray away from the truth. But this book proves it definitely is biblical, and leaves you confident and reassured that what you’re reading is the truth.
The next thing I love, is it has not only the stories from the Bible as examples, but modern stories as well. For years I wondered, how can you take what was written thousands of years ago and apply it to your life today? Shelley did a beautiful job doing exactly that. Each chapter she first gives the Biblical story, then a modern story, and pairs them together. And it really helps you apply that Biblical teaching to your own life.
Also the prayers, I love the prayers. Sometimes I am just not sure exactly what to pray, or fear I might leave something out. There are prayers at the end of each chapter where you can pray yourself, that are so insightful, personal, and spoken right from the heart. Each prayer I prayed just made the entire day’s chapter blossom, and come to life.
All in all, it almost feels like Shelley is holding your hand through the entire book, guiding you, teaching you, identifying with you. For me this is imperative. I’m always, constantly, seeking out how to grow with the Lord, mature, and root myself even deeper in Him. Though Shelley is female, so women can identify with her, she also gives stories and examples about and told from men as well. This book is exactly what I needed, and something that can really change your life, and your walk with the Lord, your spiritual growth and maturity. Definitely a book that you can reread over and over again and get something new out of it every time. You must read this book, for yourself, and get a few for those you love too!
I was provided this book by Body and Soul Publishing in exchange for my review.
I was forwarded an advanced copy of this book and have been delighted to read it and review it!
oo often, Christians hide behind the veneer of "it's all good" and "too blessed to be depressed". While it is true that as God's children we are very blessed - in spite of our problems - glossing over them is not leading an authentic life. Why should others be drawn to Christ if we aren't truthful as His representatives?
In this book, Shelley speaks from her own experiences and has included other's trials as well. I was happily surprised that Cliff Ball, another of my favorite authors, was included.
She leads us step by step through prayers and Bible verses to overcome our doubts and fears, while strengthening our walk with the Savior. None of this is "magical" - we still have trials and testings, but she leads us to faith to not only endure our circumstances, but to overcome our fears as well. I strongly recommend this book. Although I received it as an ARC, this in no way has influenced my review.
