I love Charles Stanley. Don’t let his age fool you! He is wise and still humble in his writings. I found this devotional easy to read, with out feeling like “I just did my duty reading for the day”. Without spending time with God each day, life gets harder and harder. Usually, its hard to get a focus and find a place to start in Scripture. Charles Stanley gives plenty of spiritual meat in this book, and scriptures to follow thru.
I recommend this book. Even if you are not a believer, this book will give you a look at what the Christian life is about, how it should be walked, and what we should look like when you look at us. Thank you Charles Stanley for yet another awesome book!
Thank you Book Sneeze for making it possible for me to read it.
Max Lucado is an excellent story teller, and this novel is not short of brillance! Max moves through each chapter with a different story of one ordinary person who allowed their extraordinary God make difference through them. Each seeing one thing, and as it lays heavy on their heart, prays to make a difference. Each story stirs the heart to praise God! But it doesn’t stop there, it provokes the mind to do the same…make a difference..do something! (Even if it seems to be small and not making a dent) Our Extraordinary God take a little and makes a lot!
Max Lucado impresses me that the stories are not made up from somewhere in his creative juices. All can be followed up in the back of the book with the proper documentation. This book would be an excellent study book for a small group. Questions for discussion and self application are listed in the back of the book for each chapter.
This is a must read! Easy to read, back with Scripture, and motivating to press on and move forward with our God. Nothing is too hard for HIM.
Out Live Your Life, you were made to make a difference!

Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World, by Dr. David Jeremiah
Once again Dr. Jeremiah writes eloquently. Easy to read, Easy to understand, and yet meaty enough to keep my attention. He addresses the world we live in, not excluding any of its chaotic state, or the destruction path we are on. Everything is factual as I checked them out myself.
Dr. David Jeremiah shows scripturally how this is prophesied in Revelation, and how we are to cling to the words of Christ for our comfort. Keeping our eyes on our LORD in order to rise up like on wings of eagles. His reminder through out the book of a cursed/broken world is timely. As believers we need to remember that first, and then the blessing we live under.
I loved this book, although the truth that is spelled our here is hard to swallow at times. Jesus did not promise us a life with out trials, or chaos. HE did promise us to never leave us, to guide us, to comfort us, and to give us peace.
This is a must read. Todays world, todays news can not just steal our confidence but will tear us down. Thank you Dr. Jeremiah for the truth you have given to us in this book, no doubt a reminder from God.
