Romans 12 (The Message)

 1-2 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

The Word

"Forget about what's happened; don't keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I'm about to do something brand-new. It's bursting out! Don't you see it? There it is! I'm making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Isaiah 43:18-19 The Message

My Review:
This is a book that I would normally not pick out but glad I did.The book is about the Lord being our "first love" and how much God loves us. It encourages us  to look to God to fill the places in our heart and life that we often look to others to fill. The author shares from her personal life experiences and how God filled the places of her life with His love through His Word to her. This book is more of a love story that we all can have with the Lord when we remember who are first love is and should remain being in our life, the Lord Jesus Himself.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
