Thirsty for More
When it comes to our connection with God, we dread "dry seasons," when we feel far from our life-sustaining Creator and redeemer. We want to dwell in lush valleys, not wander in trackless deserts. And yet, during the first three centuries of the church, many men and women purposefully moved into deserts to seek God. They understood something that we have missed: a desert is not a place of vast nothingness, but a place where we can truly experience God's provision, restoration, and intimacy.
Through Scripture and personal stories of her own times of waiting and struggle, Allison Allen offers a fresh perspective for women who dare to believe that God is doing something of eternal value in their dry seasons. She shows how God can use these times in our lives to reveal himself to us, to give us rest, to get our attention, to show us our strength, to experience his blessings, and more. Any woman who has been feeling spiritually sapped will welcome this refreshing message of hope.
My thoughts: This book is amazing! I love how honest and open Allison is about the seasons in her life, helping the reader gain fresh perspective. Those times of waiting and struggling are never fun, but this book helped me to remember the bigger picture and that God is always right there with us. I really enjoyed the personal stories and thought that Allison did a fabulous job of drawing one in. This is an excellent read!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
