Need A Little Love? 66 Ways God Loves You~ Book Review



 Sarah Rothschild shares how her Grandma Sarah gave her a red leather Bible  when she was a young girl. She carried it to church each Sunday. She states, "Something deep within me knew that just like the glue on the binding held its pages together, the truth in its pages would somehow hold me together." Such profound truths for a small girl. And it did hold her together. When she turned 15 she lost her eyesight. She no longer could read her beloved Bible but the truths still held her together. She now listens to her Bible on audio or on apps on her computer or her phone but it still holds her together and  it still makes her feel loved. 

Sarah wants her readers to feel loved too. In her book, she summarizes each book of the Bible and how God records His love to us in His Word from Genisis to Revelation. 

The book starts with chapter one~ Genesis. Chapter one tells us of how God loved us when He fashioned us with his hands. In Leviticus ~ He grants access to Him. In Numbers ~ He shelters us in cities of refuge. 66 ways through 66 books of the Bible~ ending with Revelation sharing how God receives us as His treasured and beloved bride. 

This is a wonderful book of encouragement and love. It truly reminded me just how much God loves me. Thank you, Jennifer! What a wonderful book.

Stop Trying To Fix It~





I hate to see hurting people ~ or even animals down to the smallest little creatures. I  am that crazy lady who will stop and move the turtle to the other side of the road. I want to fix everything and make everything just peachy.  I would rather live in "Sunnyville" all the time. The movies I watch and the books I read need to have a happy ending. It is true of me to a fault.

My husband often times held me back when it came to our children because sometimes they needed to feel the consequences of this crazy and broken world without me softening it. My oldest daughter told me not long ago that I often made everything ok and when she entered into her own world it was hard realizing the world was not gonna treat her like her momma and make everything ok for her. NO matter how hard I wish I still could. We mommas never want to see our babies hurt now, do we?

Yet ~ as I turn on the news this morning my momma's heart is heavy. I want to right the wrongs and fix the broken. Yet, these days "Sunnyville" seems to have slid down the slippery slope along with the beloved "Mayberry."  No matter how hard I look for them they are nowhere to be found.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5King James Version (KJV)

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

So what are we to do in the current mess we find ourselves in today? This is what I am asking my Heavenly Father. Here is the answer I found in His Word this morning.  I am Christ's child and my life belongs to Him. Even though I am walking in the flesh I am not to war according to my flesh. That means even though we live in this world we are not to wage war like the world does. We are not to fight with the world's weapons but with the divine power of our God. We need to realize that our powerful God has the power to pull down strongholds . We need to take our thoughts captive and look at this war through the eyes of God.
