It seems terrifying almost, at least to me. What if he calls you to sell everything you own and move to a third world country? What if he asks you to do something that for which you feel utterly unequipped? What if anything means you go through the worst trials of your life all for His glory?
Here in America, Christians have the luxury of comfort, relative safety and the freedom to live their lives however they see fit. Even the poorest among us our leaps and bounds ahead of most of the world. We're raised from birth to work hard to attain our "American dream." While there is nothing wrong with seeking to provide well for our families and to be successful in life, has this focus on climbing ladders both social and financial caused the modern day American Christian to avert their eyes from our true purpose---to spread the love of Jesus throughout the world.
We've also begun to fit our faith into our own little labeled boxes, with lists of rules and principles taped to the side. A Christian is...followed by a laundry list of traits that we ought to exhibit to be a "good Christian woman.Read more ›
It's easy to lose passion and desire for risk. Kids come along and it's not as easy to take a risk for the sake of the Kingdom. It's easier to do things in such a way that, in general, there is a known outcome.
However, this book showed up at my doorstep at a good time. Through it, God reminded me of who we're living for, what our purpose is here, and to not give up just because it's hard. Of course it's hard. But being soft-hearted and willing to say `yes' to the voice of God, even if it doesn't look "normal" is worth it. It's what I signed up for when I said "yes" to Jesus.
In her book, Jennie does a great job of telling her family's story of how God shook up their hearts and lives a little bit, and how He has used their willing, surrendered hearts to change the life of the people around them. She also does a good job of showing that saying to God, "we'll do anything", doesn't mean you move to Africa. Sometimes it looks like moving closer to home to take care of a sick mom. Other times it looks like adopting or fostering children in your community or across the world. Sometimes it looks like staying put, and being more intentional in living simply and giving generously to those around you in need. But she reminds us that following Jesus certainly does cost something.
One chapter in particular sticks with me.Read more ›
And Jeanie Allen in "Anything" reminds the reader that our hearts were made to live in and for God. All else, in the end, doesn't really satisfy. But God is real and His children live with Him now, and afterward forever. Thus He should be our main focus and for, primary love, and foremost joy.
The Bible instructs people to do "all things for the glory of God." Holy writ notifies the world that in our life, we can have the supreme joy of knowing the Father in a loving, covenant relationship. One cannot have real meaning in this life without the Lord Jesus Christ. Emptiness, loneliness, purposelessness, and despair are the companions of those who do not seek God in Christ. A covenant life with God Almighty brings daily enrichment, enchantment, and a wonder-filled life. Doing all things for the glory of God and enjoying Him brings a splendor-filled zest to the daily delights of nature, employment, motherhood, children, friends, God's Word, prayer, and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
So say to the Lord: "God, we will do anything. Anything!"
This is the central point of this inspiring volume.Read more ›
