There are seasons that we all walk through that can make us think…. WHAT!?!?!?!?! This isn’t how it’s supposed to be… what on earth is going on… you know what I’m talking about, we’ve all had them. Well that’s what’s been going on around here for a number of weeks. To say that the crazy is off the charts… well that would be an understatement.
But… GOD is HIS infinite wisdom – which astounds me hour by hour – knew what was headed my way… and somehow this little book – What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days by Holley Gerth – dropped into my life when I needed my soul refreshed and my heart encouraged. It truly has been a blessing. I would encourage you to pick it up for yourself or for that person that may just be having a WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?! going on in their life.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“We all have days that make us want to pull the covers back over our heads and eat a dozen cupcakes. Thankfully, Jesus said we don’t “live on bread alone” – that includes cupcakes – “but on very word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt 4:4) What we really need is truth.
If you’re tired, discouraged, or feel a little empty inside, my prayer is that by the end of our time together, you’ll be refreshed and nourished in a way that will sustain you, through whatever the future may hold. Remember, you’re not alone, my friend.”
This little book – “What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days” – is 52 encouraging truths are just that… encouragement. The Author, Holley Gerth, gives us 52 “lessons”… truths… from the Book of Psalms.
My favorite comes from page 224 “God Hears What Your Heart Has to Say”. To say that using one simple line of Psalm 139:4 and the story that accompanies it, Ms. Gerth spoke God’s peace and love in my own circumstance. I knew as I was reading it that He was reaching down into that hurting circumstance and giving me the peace that He has it all in His control.
This little book is packed full of peace and encouragement, joy and strength. Let it into your life for the next 52 days… or the next 52 weeks. Either way… you will be blessed.
