My Thoughts:

     Have you ever been really needing something but you really don't know what it is you need?  Well, I have been seriously going through some really bad times.  Nothing I did seem to make it better and I just really felt like God wasn't listening to me anymore.  I started reading the book and before I could even get off of the first page, I was already getting my answers.  It is amazing how God works in our lives.  In reality he was listening to me but I just wasn't listening to what he had to say back.  Maybe, just maybe I didn't like what he was saying.  This reminds me of something John says in the "Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons".  This one line in the book has so much meaning because we as children were punished by our parents when we done wrong.  Even though we were punished we were done so because they loved us otherwise they could have cared less what we did.  God is the same way, he punishes us because he loves us and wants us to do better!

     This book has just been a blessing in disguise for me and I am sure that if you read it, that it will be a blessing for you too.  For one of my lucky readers I have a copy to give away.  Just follow the Rafflecopter and Good Luck.
