It could change your heart
on August 3, 2011
First off let me clarify, this is not a paid review. As a matter of fact the author of the e-book does not even know I have read the book yet. :) All of the thoughts posted here are my sincere thoughts of the book, and not in any way influenced, good or bad, by anyone else.
My friend over at Momma's Time had a new button on her side bar. This button caught my eye, so like any curious person, I clicked it. It led me to the website for Desires of My Heart, an e-book written by Heather Bixler. Knowing that Heather is a woman of great faith and that our mutual friend would not link to something that was not worth reading, I checked it out.
Because I am reading the Bible in 90 days, I do not have a lot of time to read. Unfortunately I am home with a sinus infection. Fortunately this has given me time to read. So, I picked up my Kindle and started reading.
Desires of My Heart is an ebook written by Heather Bixler based on Psalm 37:4:
English Standard Version (ESV)
Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Heather really made me think while reading this e-book. I found myself questioning my motives for so many things. Ironically, I even found myself questioning my motive for reading through the Bible in 90 days, rather reading at "my own pace."
You see, often times Christians do things they way they want to do them, and pray for what they really want. They do not slow down long enough to prayerfully consider what God wants us to do. This is painfully obvious in so many facets of my life at this moment.
I will not go into all the areas of my life that need work. That is not what the purpose of this post is about. I am going to tell you that Heather is a gifted writer and she had the input and "faith stories" of three women who share her vision and heart for God. While I only know one of these three women who shared their stories, they all three moved my heart strings and reminded me that there is so much more than what I want, and if I would just align my desires with God's desires for my life, I would live a much richer and fulfilling life than I have now. I may not have more money or more possessions, but I would be more content with the direction of my life. I might even find what I am looking for, and that would be who am I and where am I supposed to be headed at this point in my life.
I encourage you to prayerfully read this book. It could change your heart.
