    I read a book called: Making All Things New (by Henri Nouwen) which I found helpful for my own life. I would recommend this book to someone who wants to discover the effects of worrying, how Jesus responds to our worries, and specific disciplines which can help our worries slowly lose their grip on us.

    If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, that I know nothing of Calvary love.

    “For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water however suddenly jolted.”

    Reading Loving God by Charles Colson. Thankful that I got to read part of this book before and am still thankful that I could read this today!

    Finished Roy Hession’s “We Would See Jesus”. I was blessed to be reminded of Jesus being God’s solution to my greatest need. Felt very timely in light of the Christmas season. Up next is “The Pilgrim’s Progress” by John Bunyan.

    “The Lord Jesus is always seen through the eyes of need. He is presented to us in the Scriptures not for our academic contemplation and delight, but for our desperate need as sinners and weaklings. The acknowledgement of need and the confession of sin, therefore, is ever the first step in seeing Jesus. Then, where therein acknowledged need, the Holy Spirit delights to show to the heart the Lord Jesus as the supply of just that need.” – Roy Hession

    Finished A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23! Pretty awesome little book. The author’s life experiences as a shepherd brings new dimensions on Psalm 23 that I would have never expected. I never would have thought I would be so much like sheep.

    I really enjoyed this quote in the author’s reflection on “Even though I walk through the valley…”:

    As Christians we will sooner or later discover that it is in the valleys of our lives that we find refreshment from God Himself. It is not until we have walked with Him though some very deep troubles that we discover that He can lead us to find our refreshment in Him right there in the midst of our difficulty. We are thrilled beyond words when there comes restoration to our souls and spirits from His own gracious Spirit.

    I used to view waiting in the subways as a big waste of time and would play NBA jam on my phone but now I got all the time in the world to read this awesome book. #blessingindisguise

    I read The Calvary Road by Roy Hession. It’s a pretty short book but there’s definitely a lot to take from it. He puts things into interesting perspective which caused me to reflect on my own relationship with God and the importance of living out Christian life. Overall, a very solid read.

    Reading The Reason for God. It’s really good, I wished I read it sooner.

    I am reading Mere Christianity. I love how C.S. Lewis’ logic is so clear and straight to the point. Can’t wait to finish this book and gain some great insights from him!

    Reading Kingdom First and loving it so far!
    LOL when I read this: “You don’t think God loves numbers? He loves numbers so much He named the fourth book in the Bible after them!” 😀

    Reading The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen. Excited to read it, heard a lot of good things about this book from a lot of people!

    Finished reading 7 Men and wow, I must say my perception on how a Christian man should live his life out has changed. The overall theme I got from each of these truly brave men is from a passage from William Wilberforce’s biography. “It’s important to say that Wilberforce wasn’t just religious but actually had a personal relationship with God. He seems to have been motivated by love-love of God and the love of his fellow man-more than by a simple sense of right and wrong or justice and injustice.” Definitely interested in reading more in dept autobiographies of these men.

    Finished reading 7 Men and The Secrets of Their Greatness. Before reading this book, I never knew that a single person’s life, besides Jesus, could make such a big impact on the world. Definitely challenged by these men’s faith and sacrifices they made in order to follow God

    Finished humility by Andrew Murray, and I would definitely recommend it. Next I think is going to be parables of Kierkegaard.

    Include reading Too Busy Not To Pray by Bill Hybels. So far good. When you feel convicted in the first chapter, you know it’s good.

        Hi Linda! No joke I’ve already cried so much and I’m barely on the second chapter! Feeling convicted after reading Stephanie’s story of how she accepted Christ into her life. It’s just so amazing how in the midst of her pain and suffering she experienced God’s grace. Looking forward to reading the rest!
