what i'm reading

The Shack | I read this book a few years back when I was in college. I think my Aunt encouraged me to read it. I remember being blown away by the book, being challenged in my view of God and who He is and what He is like and how relational He is to us.

If you're like me reading is something you love but it takes a little while to get back into it. The Shack is one of those books that is interesting and also an easy read. I wanted to read it again to be challenged once again in my view of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit but also so that it would help me to transition back into a reading mindset for the summer.

Favorite passage | When all you see is your pain, perhaps then you lose sight of me? 

Jesus Calling | I started following a devotional earlier this year with one of my friends, Mallory. After doing a few rounds of it she mentioned Jesus Calling in one of her emails. I remember thinking that I needed something consistent and physical this summer to read through and be challenged in. Jesus Calling is just that. I love hearing Jesus' calls to us through the author, Sarah Young. It's been a great way to spend my mornings.

Favorite passage | Time with Me cannon be rushed. When you are in a hurry, your mind flitters back and forth between Me and the tasks ahead of you. Push back the demands pressing in on you; create a safe space around you, a haven in which you can rest with Me.

The New Testament | It has been a habit of mine to want to read the Bible since I became a believer. Now, wanting to read the Bible is one thing, actually making it a habit is quite another. I've loved having unpressed time in the morning to read however much I want, soak in the words, hear them read from my lips, my heart and my reflections. It's been a blessing to have this time with the Lord.

Favorite passage {this is always changing!} | Do not store up for yourselves treasures on Earth, where month and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21

What are you reading right now? Any recommendations for my next book?
