Saved My Life Jan 20, 2004
I came across this book in a hospital gift shop about eight years ago. I had recently gone through a terrible break up and experience betrayal. I was hurting and even tough I was a Christian, it shook my faith. This book helped me to heal and I have grown tremendously, because of it.
this is the best book I've ever read Mar 20, 2003
I recommend this book to everyone and anyone, this is the best book I've ever read, it was so helpful it saved my sanity- I'm not the only one
Most Uplifting Aug 3, 2002
Christians, unite!!! We always knew Satan was out to get us, but this author explains exactly how. Don't feel bad, don't feel sad, pick up this book, and uplift yourself. I recommend it to be used along with your daily Bible study. We all need some strong words of edification, and this book provides plenty.
Hope for hurting times Apr 7, 2002
This book is my second bible so to speak. I have read it at least 5 times. It gives me hope when I feel so worthless at times. It reasures me that I am free from sins grip even thought I don't usually feel that way. The most important point I got from this book is that God is always there to help me in the fight to do his will and that I need to trust in him and not in my own strength to overcome any temptation that I may encounter. Its a great uplifting book that will get you though many a trial along with your Bible of course.
It came at just the right time Jul 4, 2000
The most important thing for me in this book is the reassurance that somewhere inside, I still love God. I was beginning to think I'd lost my faith, I'd even told God "I give up on you." But I really didn't mean it. I felt like I was a failure and not good enough for God any more, because I couldn't hold back my own depression and self-hate. But Wilkerson writes, "If you were running from God, you could probably understand why the testing and severe trials kept coming on... But you are not running, not rejecting Him in any way... You yearn to please God and want only to serve Him with all that is in you. That is why your hurting is so debilitating... From somewhere deep inside you, a voice whispers, 'Maybe I'm defective..."
How did Wilkerson know? I don't cry, but reading that made me cry.
He talks later about the crosses we have to bear. I guess mine is heavy sometimes. I wanted to die. I wanted to remove my darkness from God's light in this world. But this book has helped me to see I am not alone among Christians.
Because I don't understand real love, I often feel separated from God's love. That in turn leads to doubt about whether I'm truly Christian. Wilkerson discusses this also, and says that doubt itself is an insidious enemy. If I can call doubt my enemy, I can fight it with God's help.
I didn't know if I'd read this book because I really was ready to give up. But, it came along at the right time, and had the right title, too.
