I am reviewing a copy of Unshakable Trust through FaithWords/Center Street and Netgalley:
New York Times best selling author, and popular evangelical Christian speaker Joyce Meyers reminds us of the importance of trusting God in every aspects of our lives, she points out that Trusting God is one of the best ways to honor him.
Meyer points out that Trust enables us to live without weights, burdens or care because it gives us a confidence that another will deal with those things for us. She goes on to remind us that we can drop our burdens at this very moment.
In the book we are reminded that Trust is confidence in the one who is trusted. Meyer’s goes on to highlight the importance of trusting God to help us do our best, and then trusting God to do the rest. We are reminded too that God always has our best interest in his thoughts and plans for us. She goes on to remind us that If we cannot have what we want without peace of mind, then it is probably not worth having.
We are reminded too that there is a difference between my being dissapointed and God dissapointing me. We are reminded too that we should plan for something unplanned everyday.
Another important reminder is for us not to assume that just because someone hurt us, that everyone will hurt us. We are reminded too God not only heals us, but he restores the lost years of our lives as well, and that Trusting Hod is the beginning of all healing. We are reminded too that God does not give up on us. It is also pointed out that God only leads those who truly want his guidance. It is also pointed out that a Little obedience mixed in with a lot of disobedience will still equal an unpleasant life.
We are also warned not to make the mistake of thinking we have to many problems of our own to help others. The author tells us that it is through doing good deeds we will recognize that we belong to God. It is also pointed out that love finds a way to agree; it does not for things to disagree about and that love is nota feeling we have, but a choice we make about how we treat people, and that a joyous and meaningful life is not found in what we get, but instead it is found in what we give.
It is wise that we know our weaknesses and lean on God to give us the strength so we do not give in to them. It is also important to trust God through all times. Meyer’s reminds us that patience allows us to enjoy life while we wait. We are reminded too that Trust requires unanswered questions.
I give Unshakable Trust five out of five stars!
