I am a girl who has lots of issues. I am totally willing to admit this. I have areas I really struggle in, and I have issues that I think I have all figured out. Then something out of the blue creeps up, and I realize I really didn't have it all figured out! I can be a very jealous person. I compare myself to others way too much. I see things that I want very badly. I think I deserve more. I wish life was easy for me. I don't like struggling or working too hard.

All that being said, it is a little difficult for me to read a book like A Sudden Glory. I am a fixer and after reading a chapter, I immediately go into fix-it mode. When sometimes I need to just step back and let God work in my life. I know. Easier said than done!

Have you ever looked at someone's life and thought, I want to do what she's doing. I want to have the impact on others that she is having. I want the ministry she has. Unfortunately, I have fallen into that trap many times. But then God reminds me of His words: "I know the plans I have for you" (Jeremiah 29:11). His plan for me is uniquely choreographed. His plan for you is uniquely choreographed.... planned to a T. Sometimes the choreography will make perfect sense in your limited understanding, and other times it may make no sense at all. But be sure of this: God always has a plan. (pages 126 & 127)

The study guide offered at the end of the book is an excellent resource if you are looking for a women's book study. The study offers a lot of scripture references for a deeper understanding of each chapter in the book.

I was given a free book in exchange for my review. The opinions are mine.
