A Great Read

It is sooooooooooooooooo hot!!! What a newsflash right? We start back to school on Monday and I can't even fathom how hot it is going to be. I usually want to hang on to summer a little longer, however I will be glad to say good-bye to this one.

Wanted to recommend a great read. Louie Giglio wrote a book titled i am not but I know I AM. Welcome to the story of God.   He addresses a problem that is so prevalent in our society today - the obsession with self. Who we are, why are we here, what are we to do. And he reminds us that we are all here to glorify and share in the story of the One who gives us breath every day to do what we do. It is a short book but filled with scriptural wisdom and much needed reminders about our purpose in life. I finished this morning and wanted to share a bit of it:

"The cross of Christ is the place where trust in God is born. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is an act of kindness from a loving and trustworthy God, an undeniable demonstration of His goodness that we can cling to when our sight and understanding fail to make sense of the circumstances that surround us."

Life is full of things that don't make sense and questions of "Why" that just don't have answers that our finite fleshly minds can understand. His ways are not our ways. Thank goodness. BUT....... no matter what, it is imperative to remember it begins and ends with the Cross of Christ and trusting that we are not but He is the Great I AM.
A great read. Hope you check it out.
