This is a wonderful book because it has truly captured the heart of God. Yes, these are love notes from our loving Father to His dear son Charles, but you know, God has many children and has no favorites. So, you and I can read these love notes and imagine God speaking to us too.
This little book contains 368 love notes from your heavenly Father to you(for you to confirm in your spirit), one for each day of the year. Each note references one or more passages of Scripture to add more substance to the message of the moment.
This review is not only about "Abba Calling" but the author.
I have been so privileged to have known Charles personally. He is the real thing. There is no man I know who loves Jesus more or who has a greater heart and burden for those who do not yet know our loving God. I simply love Charles and Paula Slagle, two wonderful and awesome people!
About ten years ago now, His book, "Absolute Assurance," greatly assured me that God will never abandon anyone forever-not anyone! I wept as I read it. His book was a stepping stone for me in the eventual writing of my own book on the same theme:Hope Beyond Hell The Righteous Purpose of God's Judgment
and want to say that Charles played a vital role in encouraging me to publish it when still in manuscript form. He saw great potential in it and spurred me on when I really needed it.
Let me give you a small taste of what's in store for you in this little gem of a book - "Abba Calling":
Roots over-watered will rot. I allow dry seasons to spur your roots to reach deeper into the soil of My love. Thus rooted and grounded, you will stand impervious to life's storms. Yes, I AM quiet much of the time, but you need quietness. And you need the life My Presence brings to you, moment by moment, far more than you need words. Be at peace, and keep trusting! I AM answering your prayers. I love you too much to forsake you.
I pray that you will grow to love God with all your heart as "Abba Calling" becomes part of your daily contact with God!
