Book Description

In 1976 the Big Thompson River flood in Colorado took 150 lives, including those of seven women on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ International. Deeply grieved by the loss, survivor Ney Bailey embraced a journey of faith that led her to a life-changing truth: No matter how things look and no matter how we feel, God is in control.

In Faith is Not a Feeling, Ney reveals how life’s tragedies and challenges lead each of us to an important decision about how we will relate to God. Building on a foundation of experiences all believers can relate to, this well-loved speaker and teacher shows how you can take advantage of the endless opportunities life provided to deepen your trust in the Lord.

Faith is Not a Feeling has taught hundreds of thousands of people how to choose to believe God’s promises over their own personal feelings. Now you, too, can discover the secrets that will allow you to face painful experiences with a measure of objectivity, use your feelings to take you to God, and experience true peace in the midst of failure and trials. Best of all, you will learn how to obediently and confidently take God at His word as you never have before.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those dark and painful periods in our lives March 17, 2004
Format:Paperback
Ney Bailey shares stories from her past to encourage us to step beyond whatever we may be feeling at the present moment and trust in God and His control. She writes about feelings of self-pity, unforgiveness, pride, and utter despair. Through it all we can put our faith in Jesus Christ and grow more like Him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent encouragement June 14, 2006
By Jrobby
Format:Paperback
Ney Bailey's "Faith is Not a Feeling" is a wonderful book, full of Ney's hard won personal experience in faith. Ney is a great teacher because she has learned about faith through incredibly difficult times - such as barely surviving a horrific flood. Each journey in her life reveals God's faithfulness and His willingness to teach us how to live in faith. While I was reading this book, I felt like Ney was my older sister and we were just chatting together about the Lord and His ways. Awesome! Ney's style is really personable and she ends each chapter with a cliffhanger, so don't pick this book up unless you have time to read it all the way through. The most important thing I got out of this book is to trust not only God's promises, but also to trust the God that MADE those promises. His Word is true because HE is true. I can have faith because HE is faithful. Definitely a must read for anyone interested in learning more about faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking God at His Word January 15, 2007
Format:Paperback
I have recently become a book enthusiast especially on topics of faith, God, Christian walk etc. I particularly liked this book for its simple yet profound message: Do not let your feelings get in the way of Gods Word. Ney is an excellent author with a great message. Her stories are entirely personable and you immediately grow to love her and respect her. Her style is easy to read but hard to put down. Her life is a testimony that Faith in Gods Word is stronger then any feeling we may have or any circumstance we are faced with. I am recommending this book to my friends. There is already a list of those who want to read it!!!!EXCELLENT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Has influenced my life May 1, 2006
Format:Paperback
This book made an impression when it was first published as I was in the Big Thompson Canyon a couple of weeks before the flood that Ms. Bailey survived and about which she wrote. I subsequently heard the news of the disaster, then heard Ms. Bailey speak at a church, and finally read this book years ago. The book helped set my mind in a way that subsequent years and the difficulties of life have been un-overwhelming, as the Love of Christ overwhelmed them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed my Life December 18, 2013
By Lauren
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone whose emotions have played a big role in my life, this book completely revolutionized the way I understand my feelings and the way that my emotional life and experiences fit into God's bigger picture. Ney Bailey draws from her own experiences to relate with the reader and provides clear, sound advice for how to follow the Lord and choose to trust Him even when emotions threaten to overtake your world. I'm a slow reader, and yet I devoured this book in two days and have been recommending it to all my friends ever since. Thank you, Ney Bailey, for teaching me that "God's Word is truer than how I feel." Highly recommended.

This book had many good takeaways with the most important being the humility of Neys walk with God. I have used her chart and have been blessed by the defining way that I can focus on Gods word in my problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book November 17, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is filled with inspiring messages. We used it in our Women's Meeting and it just blew our minds. As you get into the book, you realize how much we need to understand and work with each other. It opens the eyes/mind to how much potential we have, we need only look deep inside and allow God to bring out His character in us.
