A time for somethin Greater

what do you do when you feel like you have put all your faith in nothing? I had hoped this blog would reach more people and help more grow in their faith, but I barely get four hundred views a month, and even that is a big "IF"



Now I know this is a book review, but what I wrote up there will make sense in just a moment.
As some of you may know I  have ead and reviewed Steven Furtick's book Crash the Chatterbox (click on my Reviews page and follow the link to see it) I thought that was the greatest book I had ever read. But when I requested this book,because I have become a fan of Steven Furtick, I found something Greater.
You wouldn't believe how many times  I cried while reading this book. Not because it's sad (though some parts are) or because it made me feel like a horrible Christian, but  because it's like reading a sermon God had your pastor write just for you. It touches every part of your life, firmly grounded in scripture
.
And the way Steven wrote the book it feels as if he is standing right beside you while he talks to you about his stories, all real life events, and tries to help you make sense of this broken world we liv in. Now he doesn't have all the answers, and he makes sure you know that, but he does his best to hep you out. I also love how he puts little sub chapters in all of his books, perfect for all us late night readers or if you just need to stop for a moment.

Now onto the reason for my rather oddball opening, I think the part that helped me the most from this book was chapter seven: Wasted Faith. In this chapter Seven addresses so many problems I, and probably many others, are struggling with.on a daily bases. For me it's feeling like all my efforts are worth nothing, and no many how much I pray it's never going to get better. But this book heped me look at God's promises and to realize no matter what I feel or what happens my faith is NEVER wasted.

So please next time you go to the bookstore or the library pick up this book and find more then you could have expected.

I received this book for free from the blogging for books program in exchange for an honest review which I have given
