Crazy Love

read this book as soon as possible (after your Bible of course)!

I read this book in less than 2 days.. it inspired and challenged me and made me really take a deep look into my walk with God. Here is a few lines from the book:

"Worry implies that we don't trust that God is big enough, powerful enough, or loving enough to take of what is happening in our lives.

Stress says the things that we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or our tight grip of control.

Basically, these 2 behaviors communicate that its okay to sin and not trust God because the stuff in my life is somehow exceptional.

Both worry and stress reek of arrogance. They declare our tendency to forget that we have been forgiven, that our lives are brief, that we are headed to a place where we won't be lonely, afraid, or hurt ever again, and in the context of God's strength, our problems are small indeed."

- Francis Chan
