I volunteered to read this eBook. Thank you to book fun.org
for the eBook. My opinion is my own.
All of these examples give you the opportunity to probe further into your life, and decide upon the things that you can abandon in order to receive the greater that God has in store for you!
Oftentimes, we believe that if we abandon something that we will ultimately have to go without that "thing" that we want or need. However, in this book Tim shows us that contrary to our beliefs, if we abandon our plans for God's purpose Christ will allow us to experience more than we can ask or even imagine.
Timberlake will force you to view the word abandon differently, and take a different stance on its meaning; one that is filled with positivity,faith, and limitless possibilities. This book will motivate you to re-evaluate your life, change your thoughts, and challenge you to let go of what is comfortable and familiar so that you can experience God's best for your life!
I encourage all to purchase this book, and pass it on to others, so that we may all be able to live a life without bounds, and walk into God's purpose for our lives!
We have a choice to clear our minds of negative ideas and beliefs. In order to achieve true success, we need to stop trying to do things our way. God knows our heart, and if we sincerely want to realize our purpose, a sincere heart towards God will produce results. We must allow God to heal us in every way. We must always seek God through faith, as He always responds to true faith. The choice we must make is to give up our old ways of thinking and living, and trust God to lead our path through life.
The challenge is to live our lives resisting temptation and negativity. The best way to do this is to turn to the Bible and read God's word. We need to develop a deep relationship with Jesus and ask for things based on His will for us. By trying to control our own lives and by holding on to our way of thinking, we move farther away from Christ. To be closer to Him, we must be one with Him, in heart and in purpose. We can't really hold on to God if we don't let go of other things. Once we abandon ourselves to God, he is free to do His will in our lives. We need to seek Him through prayer and completely believe that He will change us.
The change will come when we finally leave the past behind and continue forward relying on God's strength. If we value Him, trust Him, and pursue Him, we will be victorious in life. Seek Him in spirit and in truth and He will provide the way for each of us.
Tim Timberlake has written a book which leads the reader to a life which God wants for us. I found "Abandon" to be deeply meaningful and extremely useful in my life. I highly recommend this book!
