So Many Books . . .

I'm not sure what you might call it, but if there is a name for book ADHD - I have it. At any given moment I am reading three different books. I have been trying REALLY hard to read one, finish it, start the next. Not doing so well. On top of that there are several others that I am just dying to dig into. Some I have owned for awhile and others I just got from the library at work.

One of my inspirations for reading, outside of just loving it, is that I seem to think far outside myself when I read. My mind and thoughts grow and I am encouraged to keep learning, keep reading, keep pursuing the passions that God has placed within me. If it is possible to keep getting smarter after 40, well then reading is my method of doing that.

This week I started this:


I am actually reading it as part of an on-line discussion/blog group. I had no doubt that I had a long list of insecurities, I just didn't realize the impact they were having on my life. Without question, God will be speaking loudly to me through this book. Thank you Beth!

Then there is this one:
I believe that all followers of Christ need to raise their awareness of spiritual warfare. It doesn't mean that every believer is called to the same level of warfare or same level of involvement. But if Jesus Christ is your Savior, you are already involved in it. We need to know what we are up against.

Then there are these books that are calling my name:

Sacred Marriage
, by Gary Thomas
The Feasts of of the LORD, by Kevin Howard/Marvin Rosenthal
Life Support, by Robert Whitlow

Did I forget to mention a couple bible studies? Yikes. Praise God for good books, eyes to see, a mind to understand and Starbucks to keep me awake!

I hear you! I have books that I'm reading, books on hold at the library, and a longer list of books that I will put on hold once there is a possibility I will have time to read them! We must know that our thought closets need filled with better clothes ;)

Yes! Love to read and with all this snow I enjoy just sitting back with a nice cup of tea enjoying a good book. I've read Sacred Marriage and Invisible War. Both great books. I can't wait to read Beth's book. God uses her to speak to my heart! Right now I'm readinf Beth's book David 90 Days With a Heart Like His.
