In Want and Plenty
Although our circumstances vary, we all ache with a longing for something more. We are born with dreams, and some of us even have detailed plans about how to make them happen. Yet we all come to a point in life when we realize that we are not in control. A loved one gets sick, a tragedy occurs, our plans backfire. What we may not realize is that even if we can't depend on our circumstances or even ourselves, there is One who will always provide what we need, just when we need it.
With compassion and enthusiasm, Meredith McDaniel invites you to walk alongside God's people in Exodus as they wake up each morning to manna, God's provision for them in desert places. As she unfolds their story of complete dependence on their Creator, you'll discover through guided journaling how God is providing for you right now, where you are in your own unique story. Along the way, you will develop a comforting awareness that you are seen, guided, protected, and filled by a good God in the person of Jesus.
My thoughts: I really appreciated this book! I like how Meredith's thoughts run parallel with the story of Moses. I appreciated the stories that she shared from her years of counseling, as well as her own personal stories. This book deals with a lot of relevant issues like finding your group (I kind of love the idea of going out with a group of moms and having the kids sit at a separate table! lol. I'm not sure that my kids are quite there though) and dealing with self image. I highly recommend this book!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
