The book that is going to be given away (see end of post for details)
No matter what love is like down here on planet Earth,
God's eternal love
- God who IS Love -
is always true.
The True Blue-est!
And ever and always He is true to His Word.
Always!!! Even when life is hard...
This is what James MacDonald's talks about in his awesome and encouraging, down-to-earth book Always True. (You'll feel like you are having a conversation with an empathetic and encouraging friend; not preachy at all.)
Mr. MacDonald, a pastor in Chicago, had to live by faith in the promises of God, relying solely on God's faithfulness to keep His Word, when the weight of a heavy trial crashed upon him. We've all been there, under a burden so crushing we wonder if it is ever going to be lifted off of us or if we are even going to survive it. That's where he and his wife found themselves...for years. (And you know how hard it is to persevere when it seems that the trial will never, ever end...)
In times like these, God's Word and His faithfulness are all we have and need. James said of that sinking time, "I needed life support. I needed God's promises."
Whether we are in our darkest hour or basking still under the sunshine, this book steers us in the right direction (God's promises), cheers us to believe those promises, trusting the Promise Keeper, and assures us that God hears and is near.
There is hope and help in the promises of God, and James MacDonald knows all about it! We will, too, after reading his book.
Please remember: God loves YOU. He cares for YOU - no matter what it may feel like!
If you are in need of a B12 shot in your trial, then please let me know in the comment box and I will send this to you (I know how desperate and at our wit's end we can get in certain trials, especially the loooooooong ones). Moody Press, whom I am writing this review for, sent me one extra copy to GIVEAWAY. Is it just for you... or do you have a friend who needs it??? Please leave me a comment and a way to contact you if you are chosen.
YOU ARE LOVED!
(Later...Your comments are so touching and I am praying for everyone commenting and for every friend they are mentioning, as well. I will choose the winner on Friday morning.) xo
