Spoken From the Heart: Choosing Grace by Cheri Swalwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Spoken From the Heart is written with authenticity and honesty. The author clearly desires to be a woman of God and deals openly with her every day issues that readers can relate to in their own lives. I would like to share some quotes to show you what to expect from this 31 day reading.
“My job is to love. Accept the person. Let others know they are valuable, loved worthy, and unique. And….introduce them to our Father. Then let God be the One, in His time, to show the person what areas in their lives need help. He’s more than capable.”
“Not once in these examples did Jesus degrade, criticize, demean or replay the person’s mistakes repeatedly. So my point in all this is two-fold. We need to look toward Jesus’ response when others make mistakes that affect us. And also, we need to remind ourselves that if Jesus is willing to show compassion when we’re learning, we need to give ourselves that same courtesy. After all, that’s the way of the God of the Universe handles the situation, don’t you think it’s good enough for us, too?”
“He doesn’t need me to obey perfectly. In fact, I will never be perfect. I don’t need to place high expectations on myself to ‘hear Him right’ all the time. I just need to be willing to listen when He speaks. …But if I’m truly seeking to listen to His voice, He will keep talking until I get it.”
More awaits the reader inside Spoken From the Heart.
