Great news–I have an extra copy to give away of Shift, Changing Our Focus to See The Presence of God. Check out my review and then put in a comment below to be signed up for a random drawing. The drawing will be this Sunday, March 21 at 9 a.m. EST.
Shift by Abby McDonald is a fresh way to look at and recognize the presence of God. Each chapter includes self study questions called Adjusting Our Lens to ask yourself that are very helpful. The chapter on legalism is extremely important to me because I have been in legalistic churches before and it is easy to fall into that mindset. The Adjusting Our Lens questions asked at the end of each chapter really give the reader a chance for insight and a new perspective. Other chapters include Invisible or Not? This is about missing things on the journey because you are focused on the final destination. I also found the chapter When “No” Is God’s Saving Grace extremely insightful. Who hasn’t been disappointed when No is the answer to a prayer, and then received something even better instead? The author tells us that “No is just a much of a product of His grace as Yes.” Such a poignant reminder. These are just a few examples of the fresh perspectives in this book. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to look at God with a new focus.
I received two free copies of this book from the publishers. My review is voluntary.
