Many things that Jason said. God is one of redemption and love. In order to move forward in our lives we need to move through our past. Thanks for helping me sort through all of this :)
He explored the concept of the God’s spot and he asked everyone to look at who we are putting at the center of our lives. He shared how he struggled with this and he put his wife in his God’s spot. He expressed how he had a high pleaser personality and he hated conflict. He backs this up by looking at Psalms 23 and how this scripture explains how God is our Shepherd and how God is with us through the valley of the shadow of death. He discovered four ways to re-center our God spot and how we can let God back on the throne over our lives. He traces back to his childhood and how he struggled with fear and how it even led to him in accepting Christ a lot of this was out of fear of being left behind after watching a film. In his childhood, he sneaked into his parents to sleep on their floor and he had fears of dying and being alone. When he was fourteen-year-old he shared how he hated being home alone and how he would load a gun every day in case someone broke into their home. He revealed how he was taught by his dad to take every thought captive and how he learned to change his thoughts. He was able to overcome strongholds of fear and to recognize the lies before they took over control of his life.
I would recommend this amazing book to anyone who is experiencing struggles in their own lives and they are having a difficult time dealing with conflicts and they are overwhelmed. I immensely connected with his story of being afraid of being alone and how a film of being left behind drew him into receiving Christ. I was also led to salvation in the same way it was just a different movie then his was. I related to his personal story and have experiencing some of the same fears he has. I liked how he looked at the God’s spots in our lives and how we can change it and redirected it back to God being the center of our lives. In reading the book, I can’t help but wonder if maybe this Covid-19 virus is also supposed to bring us all back to Christ being the center and it’s to show us all that jobs, church, friends, family, school, and anything else isn’t supposed to our God for our lives. We are supposed to have Him at the center. I also liked how he included discussion questions at the end of each chapter to guide readers into thinking about their own lives and help them to find their wholeness. I believe this book has the power to assist readers into dealing with their pains, shattered dreams, and wounds and help them in working through the path to wholeness.
"I received this book free from the publisher, Bethany House/ Chosen for my honest review.
I can see where a lot of people might read this book and find comfort and even walk toward healing.
In the chapter entitled “The Power of Forgiveness” Jason wrote something I agree with: “Compassion literally activates true forgiveness, therefore releasing you from the emotional and spiritual bondage of unforgiveness.”
I agree with that completely. Once I saw my abuser with compassion instead of hate it was much easier to extend forgiveness to him.
But the deeper I got into the book the more I cringed with the self-reliance this book promotes instead of God-reliance. He talked about walking a woman through healing and telling her to say, “I love myself.” Yikes!! Don’t we need to know God loves us before we can even begin to love ourselves? I can say I love myself but until I know that God loves me nothing much will change. Then he has her says, “I forgive myself.” Shouldn’t we be focused on God forgiving us before we work on forgiving ourselves? If I don’t get that God forgives me how could I ever forgive myself.
In a later chapter he tells the reader to pay attention to your feelings and take personality tests…really? My feelings change depending on the day, minute and time of the month. I don’t think I should pay too much attention to those.
I could share more that I take issue with but then I feel like I am being mean. A month ago I probably would have eaten this book up but now my heart has changed and I think getting more grounded in a Biblical foundation and I don’t feel like this book does that. My opinion only.
A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.
