WOW’d WEDNESDAY: A few of my favorite things

Praying Gods WordI’m thoroughly convinced that God requires we’ve gone through a thing before He ever allows us the opportunity to talk about it with other people let alone try to ‘help someone’.

I’ve listed some of my own personal collection of books that have helped me overcome trials, grow and accept my identity in Christ.  These could make great gifts to the people around you, but consider giving yourself some clarity and certainty!

A few of my favorite things:

Get Out of That Pit – Beth Moore

Beth Moore wants readers to know if God could lift her out of the pit, He can get ANYONE out! She admits she wasn’t just a visitor; this former pit-dweller had to be delivered from acres of life-accumulated dirt, bone-chilling darkness, spirit-deadening anger, heart-breaking desperation and mind-numbing confusion. The permanent lessons she learned in her desperation are lessons of hope for all of us. Deliverance is for everyone, she proclaims – no matter how you got stuck, no matter how long you’ve been down, whether you think you deserve it or not. And in her straight-talking but loving style, she reminds readers that deliverance can begin for them this very day. Comes complete with a study guide in the back of the book.

Made to Crave – Lysa Terkeurst

Has food become more about frustration than fulfillment? Break the cycle of “I’ll start again on Monday”, feel good about yourself today.  Stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body. Replace rationalizations that lead to failure with wisdom that leads to victory.  This book is not a how-to manual or the latest greatest dieting plan. Made to Crave is a helpful companion to use alongside whatever healthy eating approach you choose-a book and Bible study to help you find the ‘want to’ in ow to make healthy lifestyle changes.

Battlefield of the Mind – Joyce Meyer

Too many times we think we do it ourselves. In some instances, this may be true, but if we’re going to win continually over the attacks against our minds, we must realize that willpower alone won’t work.
