Lysa TerKeurst's "What Happens When Women Walk in Faith" is a book about following your God-given dreams, yet it is about so much more. In her book, Lysa equips us with the encouragement and knowledge to "keep on keeping on" when life's disappointments and distractions try to come between us and God's plan for our lives. The whole premise of the book is that God gives us dreams tailored for our own talents and His purposes. But just like the Israelites, we must grow and overcome giants to get to our promised lands. The bad news is that there is no short cut (just grow quickly) to the grand prize; however, the good news is the best part of the whole process is the process. The process is where we dig down deep and not only grow, but develop strong relationships with God. God is our grand prize, not the fulfillment of our dreams.
Well, if only it were that easy. Lysa knows the real task is enduring the process and not letting Satan steal us from our calling, thus the "5 Phases of Faith". Lysa's 5 Phases of Faith came out of common phases she found in Bible stories of people who stepped out in faith, such as the stories of Abraham, Moses, and Joshua. It consists of the following phases:
"Leaving-In order to go to a new level with God, you've got to leave the old behind;
Famine-In this new place, you'll realize your comfort zone is gone, and you'll learn to depend on God like never before;
Believing-You've always wanted to really believe God, but now your experience of Him becomes too real to deny;
Death: Coming to the end of your ability to make things happen seems like death to you, but to God, this is the only way to new life with Him.
Resurrection: In a way only he could, God makes your dream come true. Only then do you understand that real joy isn't in the dream itself but rather in the richer faith you acquired along the way." (pg. 10)
Lysa's own ministry began with a dream, but it didn't just go from dream to reality. No, she also had to go through the 5 phases in order to become the woman, writer, speaker, teacher, business woman she is today. This is what I like best about Lysa; she is not shy about sharing her experiences, even her dirty laundry, in order to lead others into a stronger relationship with Christ. I also like how she gets us to look at the same Bible stories we have read time and time again with new eyes. I will never look at the stories of Abraham, Moses, and Joshua the same again, and I bet you won't either after reading this book.
I definitely think this is a must read for all Christian women. I just can't say enough good things. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. I would like to leave you with my favorite lines in the whole book,
"God is good. He is way more interested in developing our characters to match our calling than manipulating our circumstances to make us happy." (pg.149)
