Becoming Real: Christ's Call to Authenic Living by Steven James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have been reading the Patrick Bowers' series of suspense novels by Steven James and have loved them! The writing is excellent and I have been really drawn into the stories. So when I discovered the author also wrote non-fiction, I wanted to check it out.
Becoming Real is about taking off the mask that we often hide behind and becoming transparent and vulnerable as we seek to become more like Jesus in our daily lives.
"Step off the treadmill, slow down, and take a time-out...The shores of your heart have been ravaged long enough by your attachments to the world and entanglements in its frenetic ways."
"When you're still enough and your soul is contemplating him, you will hear God whisper words like these in your soul: 'I'm in control. I'm at the helm. I haven't fallen asleep at the wheel. Don't fret. Don't worry. And don't panic. You have nothing to fear, nowhere else to be, nothing else to do but invest this moment in your relationship with me.'"
"Consider who God is, what he's done for you, and how you fit into his plan."
Great book and encouraging!
