On Course for Following God With ALL Your Heart Jul 10, 2009
The author calls it an invitation. You'll call it a life-line. Anchored in the six scripture verses that have kept Elizabeth George steadily on course for becoming a successful woman (Joshua 1:8), a courageous woman (Joshua 1:9), an exceptional woman (Romans 12:2), a humble woman (1 Peter 5:5-6), a contented woman (Psalm 84:11) and a confident woman (Philippians 4:13), Following God with All Your Heart will steer you forward toward fulfilling God's will and purpose for your life.
Funneled through the Word of God and cemented in a mixture of wisdom and concrete examples, this book traces practical steps to following God wholeheartedly and hot-heartedly - without reservation. You will become better acquainted with biblical role models who displayed courage in the midst of pain and adversity, pick up the seven habits for gaining strength and courage, learn to bring your thoughts under control and focus them between the rock-solid walls of God's will and God's presence, be struck by mind-catching sidebars and quotes, grasp the meaning of submission, pare down your desires, feel comfortable clothed in humility, zero-in on Gods will... and more.
A solid bible study, the focus verse for each section echoes at the top of each corresponding chapter, and the biblical truths and practical applications are synthesized in the Moving Forward segment of every chapter. Engaging and forthright, Following God with All Your Heart is rich in insight and "how-to" navigation. It is a reliable compass that accurately points the way to "believing and living God's plan for you." This is definitely a "bring out the highlighters and take plenty of notes" type of book. I recommend it highly - with all my heart.
One of Elizabeth George's Best! Dec 22, 2008
Following God with All Your Heart is a breath of fresh air. This is a serious call to holiness, in Ms.George's typical gracious, conversational, mother-to-daughter, sister-to-sister tone. I have read many of her books. My favorites include Loving God with All Your Mind and A Woman After God's Own Heart. If I were to be truthful, some of the others, although good, seemed to lack the passion that those first two had. Not so with this one. As if sensing the urgency of the times we live in, Ms. George encourages Christian women to seriously read their Bibles,giving a plan for doing just that. Reading 7 chapters a day brings you through the Bible 2X a year...15 chapters, four times a year. She also has a lot to say about the grace of humility in a believers life. The opposite is pride of course, and one of my favorite quotes from the book is "If you let pride enter into your heart, you cannot expect Gods blessing: for His promised grace goes only to "the humble." She also gives practical examples of what humility looks like and what it does not look like. "All of you be submissive to one another" does not exclude anyone. If you have ever been guilty of lording over other saints, trying to establish yourself as the authority over others in the church, manipulating to get your own way behind the scenes, having to have the last word, or be the one who calls the shots, look out! God will resist, or actually war against you. Scary stuff. Also, her chapter on contentment was such a blessing. Wherever we are, whatever our physical situation, whatever our hardships or heartaches, God knows, sees and cares! It is all good to those who walk uprightly. This is a wonderfully encouraging book, and a challenge to serious minded christians to read God's word, then trust and obey it, and God will make our way successful.
