“Greater” – Steven Furtick

To not be someone who is stuck in mediocrity is the greatest thought pattern I have  gained by reading this book.

This book is based on the scripture John 14:12 where God says, “….Greater things than these….” The emphasis being greater, not just simply great but more than this.

Travelling through the everyday experiences of Elisha was very impacting, God told Elijah that Elisha was to be appointed as his successor, yet Elisha was an everyday man doing everyday tasks. I found that as the author referred back to the ordinary experiences of this great man, and how he simply took God at his word, that I was able to relate to what he was saying.

God has called me for greater and it is my responsibility to ensure I do not settle for being average, for just this, and to enlarge my vision to encompass more than I could possibly see as happening.

Steven is an author that is very easy to read, there is no doubt that there is an anointing on his life.

I highly recommend this book; it is motivation at its best. I will most definitely be reading this book again.

Book DEBrief

"Undaunted" by Christine Caine

A book I will read again!

The story that Christine shares is personal and impacting, full of honesty and openness. I related to so much of what she had to share and was extremely encouraged.

Christine is with no doubt a woman of faith, but it is the way in which she openly shares the journey of faith, including the thoughts of doubt and question and the wonder of how it will all work out that for me was the greatest encouragement.

I often feel like a lesser woman of faith when I begin to doubt, yet what I learnt from this real life story is that is the action which we take that will bring us closer to the purpose we were designed for.

I was also reminded that, from my own dark and depressive experiences, I can be used to empower and equip others; but it takes the desire to not only want change but to hang on tight to it, grip it well and move forward with it every day.

This is my first Christine Caine book, one I picked up from a recommendation, and I am so glad that I did. Christine writes in an easy to read fashion, but I found it was her honesty and humbleness before God that captured me.

I do recommend this book as a great read, but be prepared to be challenged whilst also very encouraged to become someone who is UNDAUNTED!
