♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Little Gem of A Book
We know that life is often chaotic. In the midst of apparent chaos, we not only need confidence, but we also need calm… A Deeper Kind of Calm.
This fairly short, easy to read book is packed full of depth and encouragement bolstered by the honest transparency of the author.
Through her words and examples, she points us to some specific psalms to which we can cling and through which we can grow and find the peace of our Lord that is beyond any explanation or understanding.
As Dillow points us to our Savior, our fortress, she reminds us that, “Manmade fortresses always eventually fail. But there is a fortress—a high fortress, a secure fortress—that will never fail! This fortress is not a place, but a Person. His name is the Lord Almighty!”
What about our human nature? Our tendency to succumb to the overwhelming load of pressure and worry?
“When I feel weak, weary, and worried, I remember the deeds of God. I hide in His refuge. I cling in desperate dependence. I walk in faith. And these secret choices bring Him great glory!”
“Recently, as I knelt by the sofa in my office in the early morning hours and poured out my anxieties to God, He gently whispered, ‘Linda, please go to bed. I’ll sit up the rest of the night and carry the burden for you. Let Me hold you up in this way.’ What a picture! The Creator of the universe sits up, waiting, watching, and praying for me, His child, while I sleep.
Do you need peace and calm right now?
Only God can give that deep-down rest for your soul that you so long for and need.
He has gifted several every-day people like Linda Dillow with a special way of sharing gut-level honest experiences of struggle and adversity lovingly peppered with His persistent peace and purpose.
Do yourself a favor and get your hands on a copy of this little gem of a book. You may just come to know A Deeper Kind of Calm for yourself.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Prepare You for the Road Ahead
In the last several years I have read many books on the topic of suffering and trials. This may be the first to step over the question of, “why,” and explore how to get through! There is no lofty philosophy here, just the simply spoken words of the Psalmists and Dillow’s plain explanations and encouragement. This is really one of the best books on suffering and trials that I have read. The book is divided into five chapters to read. At the end of the book is a study guide you can do by yourself or with a group. If you do want to know why God allows suffering, she has a page of resources you can follow up with. This is a great book to own and to give. If you’re suffering or not, it will enrich your life and prepare you for the road ahead.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Great Study to Apply & Live What I Learn
So far I am really enjoying this study. It’s taking me a while to do the first week’s study (like a couple of weeks) because I have been side tracked. It’s only a 4 week study but going by the first week, it’s really in-depth…not hard by any means, but I feel it really makes me think and try to apply and LIVE what I learn.
