Books, books and more books

I found this amazing book, John's Story, The Last Eyewitness, from the Jesus Chronicles. It is the first book. There are 3 others in hardback but Matthew's Story is only in hardback. This is the story of John and his life. It is great so far.

I have 3 books going at the same time and this one is the one that is the first for me to pick up.

The next one I pick up is this one: Praying God's Will for Your Life is very good also. Totally different kind of book. It is a slower reading for me. Honestly, I get the studders when reading this book. I'm a control freak. I want to control everything. My life, my kids lives, my job, etc. This is a turning it over to God book. It is a hard book for me to put into practice. I am working on it.

Let Go. Let God.

I know when I do, things are much, much better. But I keep closing my fist and holding on. So I sometimes have to pry those fingers open and give it up.

Let Go.

I like to be in control too! It's so hard for me not to be. I am learning a little at a time. Your books sound very interesting.

I finished that first book you mentioned about a month ago! I loved it!!!!

You are right on sister about Praying God's will for your life. That book will put you right to the edge of your seat about letting go of life and letting God have control!

It will grow you to a whole nother level!
