    Book Reviews

    I love to read and review books and have a very broad range of genre interests. Reading and reviewing Advanced Review Copies is also something that I greatly enjoy and am always more than happy to do. I express my opinions openly and love to share the great new books and authors that I come across. I am more than thrilled to do reviews for any author and/or publisher.

James 1:1-11

James encourages us to be filled with joy as we walk through trials, as each trial – that will inevitably come – is a test of our faith & will help produce patience within us. We’re to take the steps, prepare ourselves, to have a positive outlook throughout the trial. Not that we’re to pretend that we’re happy, but to take the time to look for the good, the blessings, or even what you learn from each trial.

Yes, this is not an easy task… remember, we can do all things with Christ who strengthens us! He will give us the ability to have joy in trials… all we have to do is ask!

Each trail we endure (growing patience) brings us closer to God, where He wants us –> depending on Him, trusting in Him to see us through, trusting in His Will for each situation, to Lean on Him – not our own understanding.

Max Lucado asks: How can you find joy in trouble?
I ask too… … … and pray; seeking His guidance to answer this question and return to His Word –> we’re to ask for wisdom! With God’s wisdom He’ll fill us with the joy – helping us to see the blessings within the storm, helping us to learn from the situation, and bringing us closer to Him.
