Listening to the Voice of God

Book Description from publishers site:

Listening to the Voice of God is your invitation to take a break and claim precious treasure from the Word of God. Add faith, and the treasure will multiply in your heart and enrich your life. You’ll gather gems of wisdom. You’ll relive the move of God in ancient times, and witness Him speaking today. Take your break with an open heart and mind. Shut out the world’s distractions. Claim your treasure from God’s boundless supply.

This book is a very quick read. I finished it in one night. One of my favorite things about this book is that it is full of scripture, more than what I am accustomed to seeing in books. One thing I am confused about though is the purpose of the book.  I was expecting a how to book on how to hear God speaking to me. The book is instead full of stories from the authors life. She talks about situations were she had to wait for God’s direction and provision. Though I think the book was a great read, I did feel I missed something in translation of what the book was going to be about. I guess I wanted more details on how to know what God is speaking to me, how to discern what he wants for me, or just how to listen to know its his voice. I will add though I don’t see God working in her decision to buy a Pinto, if anything, he should have stopped her from getting one.

I think the book is worth reading and it is well written. Just don’t expect a “how to” book like I was. Instead, enjoy her life stories how God worked in her life and take away what little nuggets of wisdom you find for your self.

I give it 4 stars! taking one away because it was not what I was expecting.
