I Want More: A Look at "A Sudden Glory" by Sharon Jaynes


Is this all there is? 


There is a moment when you find yourself going through the motions of life, and even in your relationship with God that you stop and wonder "is this all there is?" I know I have. I have asked this question many times in my life.

Now I know, that there is so much more to God, to His purpose for me and to my relationship with Him, but I did not always feel that way.

Before I began blogging and really seeking God in my life on a daily basis, I was a by the numbers kind of Christian. Attend church x amount of times in a week....check. Sing x amount of songs....check. Read x amount of chapters in my Bible....check. Pray x amount of minutes a day...check. But life was stale and dull. There was no vitality: there was no real life!

This is why I was so excited to find A Sudden Glory: God's Lavish Response to Your Ache for Something More.  By Sharon Jaynes (WaterBrook Multnomah Press- Affiliate Link**)

This book moved me, challenged me and reassured me. I am not the only woman out there that wonders "is this all there is?"

God spoke so strongly to me through this book and I want you to have the same chance to be moved, as I was. This is what I said on the publisher's website, and I believe it is true.

"A Sudden Glory shone for me. As a woman who has struggled with her relationship with God, I understood the longing Sharon describes so perfectly. I wanted a fullness and a joy that I did not seem to have. I became disillusioned and at one point took a 7 year "break" from my relationship with Him. 

To hear that I was not alone was amazing. 

In this book I found a new way to look at my life. I was challenged not to "do" but to "be": to exist as a child in her Daddy's lap and to enter into the intimacy that can only come from abiding in God's presence. 

This book is an easy read, full of personal stories, and perfect for a small group."

I cannot recommend this book enough! You should get a copy soon. Since this is the beginning of a new year, why not start it off with a new perspective about what it really means to live, move and breathe a relationship with God and in God.
