Psalm 25:4-5

Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;

guide me in your truth and teach me,

for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long (NIV)

Drench yourself in words unspoken, Live your life with arms wide open,

Today is where your book begins, The rest is still unwritten. ("Unwritten" by Natasha Beddingfield)

It matters not how long we live, but how!

Ok, so they LOOOOVE me at the library (or perhaps not!). At the present time I have 6 books checked out. I have 3 that I'm reading for "study" purposes, and 3 Christian mysteries for enjoyment (I love a good mystery!).
Oh alright...confession time...I've had this book "In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart" by Ruth Graham (daughter of Billy Graham) FOR-EV-ER!!!! I had started reading it & then put it down for a few other books. Just didn't quite feel like "studying". Didn't get very far in it. Yes, I've renewed it several times (I'm SO bad!) so as not to forget I wanted to read it (hey, nobody else apparently wanted it!).
BUT, today, I tell HAVE to get this book. I felt compelled to read it a bit before bed last nite & was drawn in. I have underlined, starred, exclamation pointed all over the margins ... and I'm only 2 chapters into it!!! (it's ok...I do it in pencil since it's not my book!) I looked it up on ebay to buy it. This books is phenomenal & really gets to the heart of trusting God with your pain. I am even going to get a copy for the pastor where I work & my pastor who got me on the path to sustain my spiritual fortitude & for my best friend!
So, I just had to share that with you! Give your library a visit...but trust me, you'll end up buying it!!! I read this & think how amazing God is to use someone like Ruth to reach out to this hurting He will take your pain & use it for good, like He did for her. I only pray that He reaches people through me too!


  1. Thanks & blessings Merana for another great book to put on my wish list!

    I saw your blog & comment over at "Along a Narrow Way" and the Blog Title intrigued me to come see and I'm so glad I did!

  2. Good Morning Merana, thank you for stopping by for a visit. I love how we end up meeting each other in 'blog land' as you mentioned. It's wonderful meeting you; beautiful daughter of the Righteous King!

    Your blog is beautiful and I love to see a glimpse of your heart for our Awesome God and Abba! It is transforming as we begin to passionately trust in our God! Your sense of humor in this well written post drew me in and I'm going to the library to retrieve the book. Upon retrieving it; I will commit my reading to the Lord and pray that I will receive what I am to receive in Jesus name. Thank you again. You are lovely!

  3. I will give the book a go on your recommendation...
