Amidst the changes comes a sense of disconnect. A restlessness and dissatisfaction with what we have.
Something is missing, but what?
I recently had the pleasure of reading "Fulfilled" by Danise Jurado. Utilizing personal stories and lots of scripture, she walked me through several chapters that touched me to my very core.
In her chapter on forgiveness, she says "Sometimes the pain others have caused us can leave us wondering if we can ever forgive them for what they have done."
In her chapter on restoration, she says "God was teaching me lessons I would treasure forever. I probably didn't appreciate them as much back then as I do now because they often came through correction."
(After reading those first two chapters, I had an opportunity to bring something to my husband and restore trust in our relationship. Not easy, but I was so thankful to have read these two chapters before that opportunity arose)
Another of my favorite quotes from her book was this one:
Truly, this book helps you as she comes alongside you, sharing her moments of strength and weakness and allowing God to receive the glory. Those moments where she was afraid to trust are not omitted, but highlighted as she relates our human need for fulfillment to the Almighty God and His unending supply of Himself for all that we need.
The best thing about her book is that each chapter can be read and read again. In her pages there is a depth and richness that is full of wisdom and life. Truly, the Holy Spirit will reach you through her book.
I am giving away a copy of her book, and she's also offering a social media contest. Here is a photograph with all the details.
