About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Glory Days- Living Your Promised Land Now!

My Thoughts:

Glory Days is an antidote for the worried, burdened, battered and broken-hearted. It's for those of us who are running on empty and are longing for help. God is the cure and Max Lucado delivers the  message through this incredible book.  I can't tell you how many times I put it down and said out loud, "This book is wonderful!" Need reassurance, guidance? It's all right here within the pages of this easy to read and entertaining book. Using the book of Joshua, Max Lucado illustrates God's vision for your life. He wants you to leave fear and worry behind, demolish unhealthy mindsets, and rebound from your mistakes and put your past in the past. He wants you to live your Promised Land Life now!

This book is a warm hug, a comfort, a good night's sleep. It's for anyone dealing with their own personal crisis, their own "Jericho". Something you perceive as too great for you to handle. I'm currently dealing with mine and it's terrifying. I had no idea when I signed up for this review that I'd be blessed so incredibly by Max Lucado's message. I won't go into details about my situation but I will tell you that this book spoke to my heart and gave me peace. God has already won the battle- I'm forever His! What is plaguing you? Addiction, illness, sin, your past, worry, lack of faith? God is by your side and your best days are ahead. Trust in Him. Call on Him. "It's just a matter of time before your Jericho comes down."

About the book: 
Glory Days
 (Thomas Nelson, September 2015)

The wilderness. Maybe you know it well.

The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck.

Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled out. Running on empty. Are you mired in the same?

You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can't remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer. You're fighting the same battles you fought the day you came to Christ. You're out of Egypt, but Egypt's not out of you.

Isn't the Christian life supposed to be better than this?

Jesus offers abundant joy. Yet you live with oppressive grief. The epistles speak of grace. You shoulder guilt. You are more than a conqueror yet are commonly conquered by temptation or weaknesses.

But there's good news. With God's help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be. Like Joshua and the Israelites, you can move from a wilderness existence into a promised inheritance.

This is God's vision for your life. You, at full throttle. You, as you were intended. You, as victor over the Jerichos and giants. You, minus the stumbles, hurts, and hate.

You and your Promised Land life.
