What I am Reading :) - Thankfulness

>> Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Right now, I am thankful for a certain book! 

Tonight, I started reading the book, "Passionate Housewives Desperate for God."
I had bought it a long while back with a couple other books and this one got put on the back burner then forgotten.
I can see where I had folded edges on some pages in the beginning and then stopped reading it.  I guess at the time I was not ready for the book or not interested in it.  Tonight, I was devouring the pages.

It has lifted me up so much about being at home with a joyful heart.  It helps me realize I am doing the work of God by being home, keeping my home, taking care of my husband and children and that all those things I do for them is unto God and He will supply all my needs.
I'm not a big fan of "me time."  I do like to go sometimes to the store by myself or things like that.  Well, I guess that I do get into "me time" then.  Anyway, it helped me to see I do not need any of that to be content.  There's been like this void in me that I'm always trying to fill... and I know ONLY GOD can fill it.. but I still try in vain.

I know for sure that ONLY GOD can fulfill it so I am handing that all over to Him and Him alone!  My temporary fixes never work!
I encourage you to read this book.  It has been sitting and waiting for me for too long.  I'm glad I had it to pick up tonight and start reading.  Renee, at The Growing Stam family has it on her side bar, and every time I see it - I think - "I  need to pull that book out and read it!"  Tonight, I did.  As with any book - it's not the Bible - but it is a wonderful book like speaking to a Godly friend and it is backed up all by scriptures.

I am thankful tonight, for that book, that is touching me!

I so enjoyed the chapters I started reading before I started my Bible Study. I'm looking forward to reading it the rest of this book really soon.

This indeed, is an excellent book. And you were right, many times, we are not ready to read a book and Our Lord takes it away from us...until it is the right time and then it becomes a great blessing!
