Posts Tagged ‘God’s will’

Whenever I run across a book that really speaks to me, I like to share it with others.  Living the Life God Has Planned – A Guide to Knowing God’s Will by Bill Thrasher and Joseph M. Stowell III is one of those books.

I actually got it for only $0.99 on my Kindle Fire recently and I would have to say that it’s been the best $0.99 I’ve spent in a long time!  It would’ve been well worth the regular Kindle price of $7.19!

The reviews on Amazon.com will tell you all about it and how valuable it could be to add to your Kindle, hardback, or paperback library.

Here are a few of those reviews:

More Christians struggle with the will of God than any other spiritual concern.  Bill Thrasher provides an excellent guide to discernment in decision making for daily living.  Comprehensive, realistic and biblical.  You can’t afford to miss this one!
-Howard G. Hendricks, Distinguished Professor, Chairman, Center for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary

Another book on living in the will of God?  Yes, but this one is different, for its focus is on the Person of God as the center of our lives and the answer to all our questions and needs.  Good theology.  Good exposition.  Good Illustrations.
-Charles C. Ryrie, Author and Scholar

Books about the will of God abound, but this one is especially helpful.  It teaches you that knowing the character of God is the basis for understanding and enjoying the will of God.  No clever formulas or simplistic procedures in these pages–just solid practical truth from Scripture, truth that transforms life.
-Warren W. Wiersbe, Author and Conference Speaker

Not only have I been reading, enjoying, and learning so very much, but also we’re using this for our family Bible study.  My husband and I take turns reading from it aloud with the three of our children still at home.  Whenever there’s a Scripture verse given, we all use our own Bibles and look the verse(s) up and the kids will take turns reading those.  We also stop to explain and discuss what we’re reading and learning.  It’s a great book to do this family style of study with and no matter what the age, God’s Word is getting in.

I really love it and am so thankful to the Lord for bringing this one to my attention.  I had been praying about wanting to know more about God’s will for my own life when I ran across this gem.

If any of you decide to give it a try, I’d love to get your comments on it!  🙂

Keep on gently speaking!

** I was in no way paid, or even given a book for this “review” – I just really love it that much and wanted to share it with others.

It hurts.

That moment when you think that, for a second perhaps, someone gets it, gets you, understands where you are even,  then as quick as a lightning strike – you realize that no… that’s not what’s happening at all.

What is happening is just a little more of the same pain, just applied a little differently.

Variation.

Is it really them doing the hurting?

Or is it possible that it’s only the enemy using them as a tool to inflict damage so deep that you can’t be healed this time?

Or is it possible that instead of it being a damaging pain that it’s a healing pain?

That maybe it’s the Lord using His knife to cut from you something that has needed to go, but that you’ve been foolishly hanging on to.

Could the pain then be a good thing?

Perhaps.

Even still.

For now, it hurts.

♥  Update: I’m learning that sometimes…. sometimes….. it’s us.  Us hurting us.  You hurting you, me hurting me.  It’s good, this knowing.  Knowing helps it stop.  There’s enough out there to hurt us, so let’s not hurt each other senselessly. ♥
