But it was just enough to bring her to a place of surrender, piece by precious piece. In that surrender, she found the freedom of giving everything to God. And through Scripture, community, and the work of the Holy Spirit, she gives it all over again, every day. In this gentle and challenging book, DeMuth describes the process and the nuances that shape us to be more like Christ. Her words are clear, vulnerable, and thought provoking, and every chapter is infused with Scripture. Most of all, DeMuth provides personal and practical evidence that there is no greater pursuit than Christ. We must surrender everything, but it does not compare to the Everything He is, the Everything He gives.
Cafe Lily's Review:
If you have ever wondered why life is so hard, and feel like NOTHING is going right - this book is for you. If you have ever been tired, discouraged and feel at the end of your rope - this book is also for you. For the tired, the weary, the broken and those about to give up - this book is for you.
The preface stopped me in my tracks, because the author's words could have been my own. I felt like she was writing my thoughts and words as she described the conversation she had with her husband while in France. She talks about being tired, shell shocked and I totally identified with her pain.
I found each chapter to challenge my thinking and the reflection questions were an added bonus. Mary made me think and I like that she's honest, but not preachy. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to grow spiritually!
