Book Review For With by Skye Jethani

The spine of this book has on it re imagining the way you relate yo God !
And that is a understatement to the way that Mr Jethani breaks down the differences in the many types of relationships that people tend to have with God , I have had a sort of hard time with this book in the sense that he is kind of confusing in some of his wording with in it , But once past those points , I do clearly see why we as a society have broken down our Own relationships with God , with in the church , life , community and in our own homes ,But even more important i see why he has said the things that he has because they do make sense we tend to put God on a shelf and pull him down when we need him , Or we find our selves when we are in trouble , hurting , in pain , when the country is in turmoil and our life doesn't seem to be going right that's when we also tend to pull God out and put him on display , When in all actuality we should Have God first in our hearts Daily , When we get up in the morning during the day and before we go to bed at night !! It should be a God thing all the time not just when we need him in our minds , Cause in our Hearts and Lives we always need him !! A quote from with in the book that really stood out to me was this --- Its by Os Guinness , First and foremost we are called to some one (GOD) not to be something (such as motherhood politics or teaching ) IN other words its not our circumstances or behaviors or radical decisions that give our lives meaning or hope, but our unity with God himself !!

Id recommend this book for those that want to read and deepen there understand and relationship with God Ive enjoyed reading it and look forward to sharing it with others

The oppions that I have posted about this book are my own ! Dont take my word for it read the book yourself and search within your soul to see where it takes you !

Strong Enough !

Sometimes you just have to step back and realize that you dont have to always be strong that its okay to admit that sometimes we arent Strong Enough to handle every situation in life all on our own !! Because in reality we really never have to handle or face any situation Alone at all ! There is a song by Matthew West that is Called Strong Enough , Here are the lyrics to is

Matthew West ....Strong Enough

You must, You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through
Well forgive me, forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up, I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t You cover me?
Lord, right now I’m asking You to be
Strong enough, strong enough
For the both of us

Well maybe, maybe that’s the point
To reach the point of giving up
‘Cause when I’m finally, finally at rock bottom
Well that’s when I start looking up
And reaching out

‘Cause I’m broken
Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God
And You are strong when I am weak
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be strong enough
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough, strong enough

I hope that after reading these Lyrics that they touched you , and reminded you that you dont have to be strong enough to face any problem or situation and think that you are alone , God is there , Hes always there to guide us when we are down to help us up when we have fallen and even in the Good times when things are all okay hes still there as well ! Guiding , Protecting and Above all !! God Loves Us ! just as we are !!
I hope you have a blessed and wonderful weekend ! Thank you for stopping By and checking out my blog today ! Have a blessed and wonderful day !!

Review for Rumors Of God by Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson

We have all had a time in our faith, where we question about why things are the way that they are , And Lots of times the questions seem to go unanswered , I have got to say that this book has made me do alot of my own soul searching and questioning and driving me to look for answers ,
A great read that I highly recommend to others and plan on sharing with several people that I know as well , This would be a great book for a Church group to do as a group study and it does have a Study Guide to go along with it in the back
Both Darren and Jon touch alot of topics with in the book and take you back and forth between biblical times and current day with situations that are close to the heart of so many , that leave many people , Hurt and searching for acceptance within there everyday life , Touching the bases of Church Hurt, Drugs , Disease Forgiveness ,just to name a few , God is not just a rumor in our lives hes there we just have to open our hearts and minds and let him in !

Rumors of God: Experience the Kind of Faith You've Only Heard About is a fantastic read. It's challenging, insightful and convicting, Pick it up and ;et it open up your heart :)
