The simple, easy to understand language of this book brought me to a new level of understanding my walk with Jesus Christ. It seemed as though God had a plan for what I would read and when. I didn't just pick it up and finish it quickly. He would have me lay it aside, and just when I needed the next chapter, I would open it, and the topic I was dealing with either personally, or a loved one was dealing with that very thing, would be the next chapter. I drove all over town and into the next town ...more

Charles Stanley is a name I've often heard over the years but this was the first book of his that I have read. I was very impressed. Each and every chapter was laiden with nuggets of wisdom and realistically helpful advice. This read was timely for my own spiritual walk and I would highly recommend it to any believer that is or has ever dealt with loneliness, frustration, burnout, etc. His own personal stories really engage the reader and make the author's points relatable. A must read for any b ...more

I love Charles Stanley's writings. One of the best things about his writing is the amount of personal application and real-life examples of the principle he is teaching. So often it is easy to generalize and share a "surface" message. But Stanely really dives in deeper and helps you apply what he is telling you by offering from his own experiences.
I like this:

"If LORD asks you to run to a wall, just do it! When you're there at the wall, HE will make a hole for you."

I learn a lot from this book. I learn that HE won't compare me. HE is provider of my whole life. HE provides in His Way. HE doesn't care whether other already has what I want. HE only cares what best for me.

A practical, Biblical, edifying resource that helps Christians overcome their emotional baggage and pain and find rest and strength in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is perfect for either a counseling setting or simply to be used in one's devotional time.

This book had some great words of comfort. At times I felt it working on my heart. It is written just like Charles Stanley preaches and is compiled from several sermon series. Very good to read if you seek peace and healing.

Great pastor. This,'s as if he owed a book to his publisher and just spit something out hoping it would sell on his name alone. Well, mission accomplished. Not awful, but it's all recycled platitudes.

All of us make mistakes but we can rest assured that God is concerned about our lives and we have love and support from him.
This book is so Awesome, Charles Stanley shared his experience in hearing from God. This is his living testimony, not something he heard.
