It provides insight into the motivations behind the behaviors that many people exhibit and explains how God's love for us, as we are should be our guiding light.
I highly recommend this book to everyone.
He also helps us to learn how to break away from hurts that may have scared us in our past and left us in a state of insecurity about ourselves. He shares experiences from his own past which helps to enlighten this in your minds eye.
Gently, but with great purpose, he shares the love our God has for us, our importance to Him and the future He sees is ours. You begin to realize how special you are and how much you are loved.
The one important factor this work will leave you with is that YOU do matter to the one who made you. Once you understand that, embrace it and begin to live it your life will change. You need not be afraid that you will fall into an attitude of, 'it's all about me,' because finally you will realize that it's all about HIM and what He has put in you to be a productive part of the world we live in. A great book to boost your self-esteem and make some much needed attitude adjustments. Recommended.
With every Christian book I am privileged to review, I search to find something within the book that will help me learn and grow in my Christian life. In reading "You!" it was very easy to find what stood out the most for me. Pastor Young introduced me to the 4-F's. The 4-F's are four destructive tenets we experience that bring about our downfall.
The first is Fear. Our fear to be `found out' is sometimes so strong that we try to camouflage our pain. Pastor Young explains how this fear grows and manifests in other aspects of our life. The second is Frustration. Frustration rears its ugly head when we won't admit our mistake. The third tenet is Fatigue. Fatigue sets in when we get tired of dealing with the fear and the frustration. The continued juggling weighs heavy on your soul and it makes us easy prey of tenet four. Tenet four is Failure, which is what the enemy craves for you and I to experience.
You might think I've shared the premise of the book, however, the 4-F lesson is only three pages of the book!
Pastor Ed Young has created an extraordinary book to help young Christians find fulfillment in a Christian walk. It is a wonderful book that is easy to read and is perfect for youth groups. It is a great book to read together with a friend or just to read on your own.
YOU! The Journey to the Center of Your Worth offers insight for both the budding Christians and the seasoned Christian soldiers, the tools to make that journey. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.
True to form, Ed has taken the number one concern to all of us - our importance in this world - and lays it out in an easy to read format. Step by step he shows each reader how to recognize what kills our self esteem, and how to make our self esteem stronger than it ever has been simply by trusting God to help us. He artfully injects scripture and personal stories to make the lessons in each section easy to understand and relate to.
My only complaint is that the book is too short. I wish Ed had expanded on some of the sections a little more. But even despite that criticism, I highly recommend this book to everyone. Even if you think your self esteem is high, imagine it going even higher - an learn how to do that by reading this book!!
This is the only book I've ever read that presents a balanced look at who we are. We are significant in God's eyes because we're made in His image, not because of the awards we win, or what degree we may have earned. I would definitely recommend this book since I believe that many people (including me)have messed up ideas about who they are and why that matters.
