Faith-Talk … A Review

Do you talk about your faith? How much of that talk is centered around Jesus and how your life has changed because of His great love for you?

Faith Talk shares how the gospel has changed women’s lives and how the gospel continues to impact these women. Their faith talk moves from head knowledge to heart saturation.

“I learned you could have a personal relationship with Jesus. I learned He wasn’t just a fact of life. That Jesus wasn’t just something you learned about at church, but living and active and He wanted to be a part of my life.” Heather Hart

I especially loved the chapter written by Hadassah Treu, “The Greatest Adventure.” She writes of her godly grandmother who shared her Bible with her. My grandmother was also my spiritual mentor in my early years.

“For me, living by faith means remembering God in my everyday struggles and joys, and doing life together with Him.” Hadassah Treu

Father, thank You for these faithful women who are doing life with You. Bless them and keep them. Grow their faith as they walk in Your footsteps. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

I received a copy of the book for my honest review.

7 Keys to Faith-filled Prayer

On His way to cleanse the temple, Jesus saw a fig tree. Although it wasn’t the season for the tree to produce figs, the leaves indicated that there were figs on the tree.

“May no one ever eat of your fruit again!” Mark 11:14

Jesus and the disciples walked on to the temple; He cleansed the temple of the money-changers and merchants and taught. That evening, they left Jerusalem.

The next morning, Jesus and the disciples walked back to Jerusalem and passed the fig tree. It was withered, from the roots up. Peter marveled, and Jesus took the opportunity to teach the disciples the key to prayer.

“Then Jesus said to the disciples, ‘Have faith in God.'” Mark 11:22

Faith-filled prayer moves mountains.

Praying Greatly Through Faith

“The faith which creates powerful praying is the faith which centers itself on a powerful person. Faith in Christ’s ability to do and to do greatly, is the faith which prays greatly.” E.M. Bounds

Have you prayed a great prayer? A prayer that requests something that is impossible for you to accomplish? Was it based upon Jesus and His ability to accomplish it?

Today, perhaps you’re thinking that your circumstances are more than you can overcome. Your hope has fled from you. You do not believe that you can rise from the troubles that you are facing.

There is hope.

Hope in the Midst of Suffering … I’ve Seen the End of You, A Review

Dying children, incurable cancers, irreparable brain injuries. Trying to help, praying for hope, dealing with doubt. This was neurosurgeon Dr. Lee Warren’s day and his ministry.

Dr. Warren reveals his inner thoughts as he asked himself how to pray for his patients and offer hope when he knew the end result, death. When he emailed Philip Yancey asking him how to “handle telling a patient to have faith when I don’t?” Yancey emailed him and told him to “write his way through understanding the issue” (p. 28). This book is the result of Dr. Warren’s journey.
